It’s April, and that means baseball season has arrived to help chase the final remnants of winter out of Detroit.

The Tigers play their first home game of the season on Thursday when they host the Kansas City Royals, with first pitch scheduled for 1:10 p.m.

First on the podcast we checked in with Chris Brown, host of the podcast Locked on Tigers and a writer for Tigs Town, for his rundown of the Tigers’ 2019 roster and their prospects for the season.

Opening Day is practically a holiday in Detroit, of course, so in today’s episode, we talk to our Man About Town, Devon O’Reilly, to get his picks for where to go and what to eat around town before and after the action on the field.

Some of the ones you’ll want to check out include:

Nancy Whiskey

The Detroit Shipping Company

The Skip

The Brakeman

Queens Bar (no TVs, but good drinks at a reasonable price)

Mootz (for grab and go slices with drinks)

Slices (for grab and go slices without drinks)

Don’t forget, be safe! If you’ve indulged a bit too much, you can grab a Lyft ride home for half the price using the code WALLSIDE2019.

Hope you enjoy our episode, have fun on Opening Day and please don’t trash our city while you’re out celebrating.
