$120 for a Game 6 Cruise Near McCovey Cove ($199 Value)
On Wednesday, October 31, fans can experience Game 6 of the World Series from a yacht floating near McCovey Cove outside AT&T Park. There, enjoy multiple large-screen televisions broadcasting every strike and home run while bartenders pour unlimited beer and wine at an open bar (cash service is available for mixed drinks). An all-you-can-eat buffet fuels revelry with gourmet ballpark bites, such as tri-tip beef sandwiches, ribs, wings, and bratwursts, which guests can take up to the sundeck to catch a tan and listen to a play-by-play of the game streaming through a sound system. The ship boards at 4:30 p.m. and sets sail at 5 p.m.; captains keep cruising until the game ends, even if it runs into extra innings.
The yacht will get as close to McCovey Cove as the Coast Guard allows.
