The Tucson Padres return to Tucson tonight to launch a four-game series against the Reno Aces. It's also Thirsty Thursday, which means you can get yourself a 16-oz. beer—or soft drinks—for just $1.50.
And if you like mixing adult beverages with baseball, tomorrow night's Kino Krawl is for you: $15 gets you a ticket to the ballgame and eight drinks! On Saturday, the Zooperstars are coming for a visit and you'll enjoy a post-game fireworks show. And on Sunday, you can bring your dog to the ballpark.
Details on all the promotions, ticket sales and the rest can be found here.
ETA: As sharp-eyed reader Red Star notes, the Kino Krawl promotion has been revised. From the Padres' Facebook page:
We apologize about the confusion but our Friday promotion has changed. Pima County informed us that they would not allow the Kino Krawl as it was offered so we came up with another great deal. It's a $2 drink special on 16 oz. beer (Miller, Coors and Bud), 16 oz. soft drinks and water; $3 for mixed drinks (normally $6.50), wine, kraft beers (normally $5.50) and margaritas when the gates open at 6:00. The alcohol special ends at 9:00. College students and military get in for $5 with an ID. If you already bought tickets, we'll be sending you an e-mail to explain our conversion later today. Game time is 7:05
