World Series Specials? Most Places Near the Ballpark Just Want to Survive

With AT&T Park in the national spotlight Wednesday for Game One of the World Series, you'd think South Beach restaurants would be busting out specials oozing with Fear the Beard enthusiasm.

You'd be wrong.

Most restaurants SFoodie spoke with either aren't doing anything special tomorrow, or are actually doing less. Spire is promising a few special cocktails Wed. and Thu. ― orange ones (the Giants Cadillac margarita, $12; Giants cosmo, $10; and Giants melon ball, $10). American Grilled Cheese Kitchen is staying open two hours later, till 5 p.m. Wed. and Thur. (its Facebook page offers up excitement of a sort via a single “whoot!”). Nova Bar and Restaurant on Second Street: Nothing special. Nearby 21st Amendment: Nothing special ― unless, says Mike, today's manager, the chef feels like it. Pete's Tavern ― practically within peanut-shell spitting distance from the park, is actually closed to the public both Wed. and Thu. for private parties. No word about specials from sister establishments Pedro's Cantina and MoMo's.
