Oakland’s Amped with A’s Fever

October 3, 2013

Let's go, Oakland!

The whole city is fired up for the MLB playoffs! Our beloved Oakland A’s will take on the Detroit Tigers on Friday at O.co Coliseum to kick off the series. Get ready for a jam-packed weekend of

#OAKtober pride.

Looking for ways to celebrate? Here’s what’s going on in The Town.

  • Adesso on Piedmont Avenue will feature a special A’s menu and drink specials.
  • TOAST on College Avenue will celebrate with the “Good Old Green & Gold” cocktail special, with yellow chartreuse, liquor 43, lemon and lime juice, agave nectar, dashes of orange bitters (tears of the Giants!) and a Cava float.
  • The New Parkway will feature the games on the big screen in one of their theaters.
  • BART will have longer and more trains all weekend long to help  A’s fans get to the game. Keep in mind—the Friday game starts at the peak of commuter hour. Leave work early if you can to avoid the rush!
