Tonight's Slugger Field happy hour features $1 beers [Downtown]

Print

Several Thursdays each baseball season — including tonight against the Toledo Mud Hens — Louisville Slugger Field (401 E. Main St.) runs a happy hour before the first pitch, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Regulars call it "Thirsty Thursdays," and that's a pretty good nickname because Budweiser beers at the Overlook Deck above right-center field are only $1. Yes, that's awesome. And yes, the line practically snakes from the outfield to home plate. Suggestion: Buy more than one brew at a time.

My favorite thing to do is to purchase a cheap bleacher seat ticket and instead opt to throw down a blanket and camp out on the grassy patch above left-center field (seen in the above photo by Louisville Magazine's John Nation). Don't get me wrong: I'm from Cincinnati and love the Reds and enjoy scouting the team's local crop of Bats talent and blah, blah, blah. Thing is, I can't take Triple-A baseball too seriously. Which is why I plop down in the grass. It reminds me of what made me like the game in the first place: Sitting outside and catching up with friends. 

The dollar beers, though, those taste good no matter where you drink them.
