Despite baseball's unofficial theme song, peanuts and Cracker Jacks were replacements for the original, mid-1850s snacks of heavily salted licorice and wooden chewin' slabs. Keep your family traditions classic, but not too classic, with today's deal: for $5, you get one charitable ticket to the San Jose Giants vs. the Modesto Nuts on Friday, August 13, at 7 p.m. (a $9 value). The ticket is general admission, giving fans their choice of seating beneath the evening skies at Municipal Stadium.
In order to bring the goodness of the game outside the park, proceeds from ticket sales will be generously hurled into the open arms of One Brick, a band of benevolent folks who support local causes across the country. In between volunteer operations, One Brickers bring people of all ages, races, and lollipop preferences together for fun, inclusive gatherings. This particular evening combines the joys of America's pastime with arguably the most joyous of American states, Hawaii. While the Giants duke it out with the Nuts, you and your fellow fans can live it up island-style. Last year's event included luau dancers, roasted pig, pineapple, a life-sized volcano in center field, and more.
The San Jose Giants, a minor league team affiliated with the San Francisco Really Big Giants, have successfully knotted up their division for the first half of the season. Now, the battle between the Giants and the Nuts looks to be a seam-ripper, as San Jose and Modesto are neck and neck in the CAL North standings. Find out who wins, possibly find out how tasty pineapple is on a burger, and definitely find out the difference One Brick can make with today's Groupon.
