As the Philadelphia Phillies prepare for what may be a very long season, the team has come up with something that can help fans deal with the losing.
The Phillies will be debuting a new bar this season that will sell liquor, according to Philly.com's Michael Klein:
But in a first this season, the Phillies and Aramark will sell cocktails and wine on the main concourse's general concession areas at Citizens Bank Park. If you think that the idea of a 'Phillies bar' is coming from somewhere out of left field—well, you're correct. It will be located behind Section 142, expanding an existing beer bar. Wine and cocktails cannot be brought out to seats. The cocktail list has not been finalized.
The bar may get more and more crowded as the season goes on, as the expectations for the team this year are rather low. After all, Phillies ace Cole Hamels told USA Today Sports' Bob Nightengale this offseason that he doesn't expect this team to win much this season. If the best player on the team thinks that, it's hard for fans to get excited for a 162-game season.
Bleacher Report's Dan Carson offered his take on what the drinks may look like, including a catchy tagline:
Thanks to this new bar, both the boos and booze should be flowing at Citizens Bank Park in 2015.
