30 under 30: $1 Beers and Baseball

Feeling the post-Olympic blues? Well, fill that patriotic void with two of America’s beloved pastimes: baseball and (cheap) beer drinking.

On Thursday evenings, Zephyr Field hosts its "Thirsty Thursday" promotion; 9-ounce Dixie cups of beer are a buck each, and cans are $2.

Yes, if you're at all like me, a 7 p.m. game in the middle of August still means profuse sweating. But why not sweat out $1 beers?

Check the schedule to make sure there’s a home game, grab some buds (literally! Thanks Budweiser marketing campaign!), and pray you can still stand when the seventh-inning stretch rolls around.

Tomorrow (Aug. 16), our Zephs face the Sacramento River Cats. (Apparently cats in California have overcome their contempt for water?). There aren’t many weeks left in the season, so be sure to get a ticket while it’s hot! Literally.

There truly isn’t a bad seat in the house, and AAA ball promises some exciting play.

Total Cost:

$5 parking

Tickets: $8.25-$14.25

Beers: $1 for a 9oz. cup and $2 cans
