If you don’t know what an Advent Calendar is, and I’m no expert, it’s a special Christian calendar leading up to Christmas. So leading up to Opening Day, I have put together a 25-part series of things to get excited about because baseball is almost officially back.
Getting “Old Man Drunk” At Yankee Tavern
We’ve talked about Stan’s, Billy’s, and the Dugout but I wouldn’t be being honest about pre-game excitement if I left out the Yankee Tavern.
Yankee Tavern is a throwback of a place because as the rest of the area changed with the construction of the new stadium, Yankee Tavern has stayed the same. No one is there to dance. No one is there to try and get laid. Everyone is there for one thing and one thing only, and that is to get “Old Man Drunk”.
Why do I call it “Old Man Drunk”? Go there once to pregame and you’ll only see old men getting a couple beers, while talking about how great Donnie Baseball was, and doing MASSIVE shots.
Besides that, they have decent food and a lotto quick draw machine, so you should pick a Saturday to make this your pre-game spot and really lose control. Plus, you can dress like a total bum in sweatpants and no one cares.
