Ferg’s Sports Bar won’t be your only go-to spot if you’re looking to see Game 5 of the American League Division series tonight.
Official watch parties are planned for Sparkman Wharf in Tampa and three St. Petersburg locations: North Straub Park, burger joint The Avenue and bar Park & Rec.
Preserve the 'Burg cancelled its regular Movies in the Park showing for Baseball in the Park. A Preserve the 'Burg Facebook post said musician George Pennington will play a pregame show at 5:30 p.m. and DJ Kitty will make an appearance.
On the other side of the bay, Sparkman Wharf’s watch party will include an appearance from Rays mascot, Raymond.
Ferg’s, located across from Tropicana Field and always popular with Rays fans, will bring in a “large-screen TV truck” for the game.
First pitch between the Rays and Astros is at 7:07 p.m.
