Monday is Parrothead Night on Margarita Monday at the Birdcage! The Birdcage becomes Margaritaville — with Buy One, Get One Free $8 Mondo Margaritas — and an All-Jimmy Buffett buffet of live tropical tunes before the game from long-time local bar band “Too Drunk to Fish,” which occasionally plays “Parrothead” nights around Sioux Falls and will make our 3rd base beer garden their latest tour stop. You can order some cheeseburgers in baseball paradise, or you can enjoy half-priced nachos with the purchase of regular-priced nachos. So, take your Bryl-cream — a little dab’ll do yah — your two-toned Ricky Ricardo jacket and your autographed picture of Andy Devine and have yourself a Groovy Tunes-day!
A live broadcast of all the home games will be available via Fox Sports 98.1 FM and American Association Baseball TV.
