Opening Day at Coors Field may as well be a holiday in the Mile High City: Denver's residents descend upon downtown en masse, kick off the baseball festivities early and keep partying until late. Earlier today, Jonathan Shikes, aka Colorado Beer Man, divulged a list of spots to find craft beer as you wait for the first pitch. Now we're serving up a list of places offering up Opening Day specials on food and other beverages.
Brava! Pizza, the cart at the base of the clocktower, is charging just $5 for ten-inch margherita pizzas all day long.
If you're watching the game in Arvada, Mannekin Frites is offering $1 off hot dogs. You can either post up there with a Belgian beer or saunter over to Arvada Brewing Company with your food.
In addition to a variety of drink specials, Scruffy Murphy's is hosting an Opening Day pig roast complete with live music.
Post photos of yourself in your Opening Day gear to the El Camino Facebook page and you could win $20 worth of food and drinks. The restaurant will award that prize to the photo that gets the most love from other Facebook fans.
Marco's Coal Fired Pizzeria is giving away free pizza and Rockies swag until the game.
Frank's Kitchen is hosting Double-Dog Day, which nets you two Vienna hot dogs with any topping your heart desires and a drink for six bucks.
Not in the mood for beer? Get started at Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar, which is offering up half-priced bottles of wine. Or get yourself to Mile High Spirits, which is pouring discounted drinks and arranging rides to the game.
Finally, Sullivan's Steakhouse is hosting live music in the bar and patio area all day, and the restaurant is offering up some deals to lure you in: happy hour pricing on food and drinks all day, $4 domestic beers, and a few discounted cocktails and cocktail pitchers.
