There are more promotions on tap over the next week. The Kino Krawl, with all kinds of drink specials, is Friday, July 13; on Saturday night, it's Christmas in July, with Santa and his elves visiting the ballpark and plenty of gifts for the first 2,500 fans through the gates; Sunday night is bark in the park, so bring your dog to the ball game (and it's military appreciation night, with discounts for soldiers and their families); they're giving away posters on Monday night; you can get free tickets to the game on Tuesday night at eegee's outlets; Wednesday game features one-dollar hot dogs and other specials you can discover on the Padres' Facebook page; and the homestand wraps up with another Thirsty Thursday next week.
