Houston Astros and Washington Nationals meet on the field tonight for Game 3 of the 2019 World Series. The first game begins at 7:07 pm at National’s Park in Washington D.C. and plenty of local spots are open this weekend for you to rock your orange and blue while you chow down and cheer along with family and friends. But the fun won’t stop tonight. Game 4, 5, and 6 will take place all weekend long and we’re here to help plan each of your watch parties.
Grab a seat in the seating bowl or bring your blanket and sit on the field as Whataburger Field plays the game on the big screen. Gates open at 5 pm before the scheduled 7:08 pm first pitch. Enjoy concessions and Astros championship gear and jerseys for purchase. Bring your glove and play catch in the outfield.
