Hip in Detroit's Guide to Opening Day 2018

Spring is finally here and that means so is baseball! This Thursday afternoon the Detroit Tigers will kick off their season at Comerica Park against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Along with opening day comes awesome parties all around town. Since there are parties happening pretty much everywhere you look, we decided to narrow the list down a bit. Here are our picks for Opening Day 2018!

POP + Offworld - The best barcade in town is opening its doors early at 9:30 AM! Grab a $6 Oberon, $2 Strohs or $4 Well Drink and play a few rounds of Mortal Kombat before you head over to the game! In addition to their already delicious selection of pizzas, they will also be featuring a Coney Dog Personal Pizza with a Lafayette Coney chili base, cheddar cheese blend, cheese curds, Dearborn beef sliced hot dogs, yellow mustard drizzle and of course white onions. 

The Skip - The weather might be a little wet tomorrow afternoon so head to The Skip where you can party half inside and half outside. Located in one of the coolest alleys in Detroit, The Skip can open its bar up wide if the weather permits. In addition to their awesome craft cocktails, they'll be grilling brats and cracking beers throughout the day. Doors open at 10 AM.  

The Belt - Just outside of The Skip, a new bar and restaurant, Second Best, will be hosting a pop up! This is a great chance to get a sneak peak of this new spot before it opens in Midtown this summer. They will be serving up some of their awesome craft cocktails as well as a Red Bull bomb. Drinks start pouring at 10 AM. 

Grand Trunk Pub - Grand Trunk will be serving up breakfast sandwiches and will open its doors at 8 AM. They will also be hosting giveaways and will have Corridor Bratwurst specials throughout the day. New Holland Brewery will be in house too, with their artisan spirits and cocktails available all day. 

Stache International - The Stache wants you to taste their sausage! They're debuting their new sausages on Opening Day, plus they'll have $3.25 tall boys and shot specials all day. Parking is free and it's just a short walk away from the ballpark. If the walk is too far, the game will be shown on the screens in the bar too! 

Detroit Home Opener Festival - One of the biggest Opening Day parties every year, this event takes over the park at Madison Ave. The event includes bands and DJs, heated tents, food, games, and more! Just look for all of the craziness going on at the Corner of Madison & Brush Next to The Music Hall starting at 9!

Opening Day at LCA - If you don't have tickets to the game, this is the next best thing! Little Caesars Arena is hosting a huge party just outside of the arena in the Chevrolet Plaza, with the game on their 900 ft. screen. The fun is happening both outside in the plaza and in the arena on the concourse, with over a dozen breweries on site, food, vendors, and live music! Plus, admission is free! The fun starts at 8 AM.

The first pitch for the Tigers season opener is at 1:10 PM this Thursday. Tickets to the game are still available. You can purchase yours here. Play ball!
