Let's celebrate the return of the Astros with loads of food & drink specials
The Houston Astros will begin their entirely controversy-free quest to earn another American League pennant in Seattle of Friday, July 24. Even though no one will be taking anyone out to the ballgame in 2020, Astros fans can still root, root, root for the team either at home or at a number of local bars and restaurants.
We've rounded up over a dozen specials. Some are only available on either Opening Day or this week but others will be offered every time the Astros take the field.
The Filipino restaurant in the Heights celebrates Opening Day with happy hour specials from open until close. Get $3 draft or packaged beers, $4 wines by-the-glass and well cocktails, $5 San Miguel beers, and $6 signature cocktail. On the food side, take $1 off all orders of lumpia and tikim, $2 off pulutan, and feast on $2 tacos.
Both locations of the casual burger restaurant will be giving away free milkshakes to dine-in customers for every Astros home run hit this weekend. In addition, get a special Crush City Dreamsicle shake.
Over in the Heights, this ice house's Astros Party Pack offers a lot of value for $50. Get a 6-pack of Karbach Crawford Bock (plus koozies, an ice-filled beer bucket with the Astros logo, and other Karbach swag), an order of ballpark nachos, two hot dogs, and three mini bottle of Balcones Texas whiskey.
The downtown craft beer bar is raffling off the last three of its infamous Mike Fiers "Snitches Get Stiches" glasses with a drawing on opening day. To enter, buy a 4-pack of 512 Brewing's pecan porter.

Chris Shepherd's pub offers half-off Houston beers when the Astros are winning.
All three locations of the German restaurant will celebrate Opening Day with $5 Texas draft beers and $5 Astros dogs — a grilled kasewurst topped ketchup, mustard, chopped onions, and relish on a soft brioche bun.
The downtown taqueria's companion cantina will offer happy hour pricing on Opening Day and during all Astros games this season. The offers include 50-percent off the cantina food menu and select cocktails, plus $2.99 draft beers and Tecate cans, $3.99 frozen margaritas and boozy aguas frescas, and $5.99 caguamas (32-ounce bottles of select beers).
