A Quick and Dirty Guide to Tonight's Astros Watch Parties

The Texans are a dud (again), but tonight the Astros make their first postseason appearance in a decade – a long-overdue opportunity to rinse out the rancid taste of getting swept out of the 2005 World Series by the Chicago White Sox. Excitement is high. First pitch of the one-game AL Wild Card playoff at Yankee Stadium is 7:08 p.m. Houston time, the game will be telecast on ESPN and local bars are getting into the spirit with a vengeance. Some are offering drink specials to fans who show up in Astros gear, while others are just setting out another bowl of peanuts or two. Anyplace with a tap and a TV will be showing the game, surely, but hopefully there's a party near where you'll be this evening. Just please don't show up at Minute Maid Park looking for one, Astros officials urge. They want to watch the game, too.

Go 'Stros!
