Take me out to the (cheap) ballgame!

Close Encounters of the Cheap Kind has a new home at www.CheapEncounters.com!

Looking for a cheap evening out with the family in the Houston area? Try taking in an Astros game.

Think I’m crazy to call that cheap? Well, not if you do it on Tuesday nights. I didn’t realize until we went to a game Friday night that for Tuesday home games you can get 2 Outfield Deck seats for just $2 with a proof of purchase from a 32oz. Powerade. Here are the details:

Get 2 Outfield Deck tickets for only $2, a $14 value, with the presentation of a proof of purchase label off of a 32 oz. PowerAde bottle.

This promotion is available strictly through the Minute Maid Park Box Office. Tickets are available 4 weeks in advance of game date (ie. Tuesday, July 5 game goes on sale Tuesday, June 7.)

Box Office hours are 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Weekdays and 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. on Saturdays, plus on all game dates until 30 minutes after the final out.

Game Dates: 4/3, 4/17, 5/1, 5/15, 5/29, 6/12, 7/3, 7/24, 8/7, 8/21, 8/28, 9/11, 9/18 (available 4 weeks out)

If you have kids, there are other deals available as well. Kids 12 and under can join the Astros Buddies Club and get a coupon for 4 View Deck I or View Deck II seats on selected dates (Friday, April 27 vs. Brewers, Thursday, May 17 vs. Giants, Sunday, June 3 vs. Cardinals, Thursday, June 14 vs. Athletics, Sunday, August 26 vs. Pirates, Wednesday, September 12 vs. Cubs) plus a cap and other assorted crap for $10.

Kids can also get free tickets for perfect attendance (pre-K through 5th grade), honor roll (6th-12th grades), and for joining the Astros Summer Reading Program. You can find more information on these programs here.

Remember just because the tickets are cheap doesn’t mean the concessions are! The Astros raised concession prices again this year, so make sure you eat before you go.
