Batter Up: Bars to Watch the World Series

The Nationals didn’t make it to the World Series this year, but there’s always next season. Grab a beer with friends and follow the Series anyway. Cheer on the Philadelphia Phillies or the Tampa Bay Rays by dropping in one of these bars to watch the game,

Phillies fans can enjoy happy-hour drink prices and special food from the kitchen at Philadelphia Tavern in Manassas.

Summers Restaurant in Arlington will show all of the World Series games. says the sports bar is a good place for Phillies fans to watch their home team.

Come watch the series on one of Madhatter’s high-def TVs and enjoy $2.50 Bud Lights and 35-cent Buffalo wings during every game.

Mister Days Sports and Rock Cafe will have food and drink specials for every game.

Though the Rhino Bar is usually overrun by Red Sox fans, it will bitterly show the World Series games. Let’s hope it offers the same specials as when the Sox played—$8 pitchers of Bud Light and 25-cent wings.

51st State Tavern in Foggy Bottom will have happy-hour specials—$3 Dos Equis and $3 Magic Hat No. 9—all night during the first game. The baseball-loving tavern will play the games on all ten of its TVs, and because neither of the New York teams even made the playoffs this year, the place is a good neutral ground for any fan.

Although it doesn’t have any specific specials planned for the night, it’ll accommodate large groups with drink specials if they come to cheer for a specific team during all games.
