Here’s the Pitch: Atkins Park Runs Bus Trip to Atlanta Braves Opener April 10
Batter up! Atkins Park Restaurant & Bar in Virginia-Highland is again rounding the bases with its spirited Atlanta Braves Home Opener Bus Trip when our hometown team takes on the New York Mets, Friday, April 10 at 7:35 p.m. Plunk down $55 at Atkins Park Restaurant & Bar and catch a game ticket, pre-game eats, Jägermeister, beer and a round-trip bus ride between the restaurant and Turner Field. Play ball? Emerge from your dugout because you must come to Atkins Park to pay for and pick up your tickets; first come, first served.
Running up and down the court, dodging and passing cranks up a huge thirst and appetite. Good thing you’re at STATS. With 70 HDTVs and seven distinct audio zones for NCAA Tournament action, every shot is a “fan”-tastic shot backed by snazzy new menu items in the playbook. STATS is the first U.S. venue to provide pull-your-own draft taps as well as offering a tall selection of bottled beer and table-ready beer buckets. Seize commercial breaks to order court-side winners from the new menu: shrimp and crab nachos with crab fondue and green onions ($13); avocado lettuce wraps with black beans and pico de gallo ($9); loaded kettle chips with blue cheese, bacon and scallions ($7); fried pork dumplings with ponzu dipping sauce ($10); STATS shepherd’s pie with venison ($18); or a burger or chicken set up as The Big Win with bacon, fried onion and barbecue sauce ($12) or El Santo-style with pepper jack cheese, pico de gallo and jalapeños ($12).
