Opening Day in baseball is a great tradition in our country. In fact, it might be as close as our country gets to an unofficial national holiday. It’s not unusual for people to take the day off of work to watch the local team’s Opening Day game. The Angels begin the season in Seattle, but you can still take the day off work to watch the team’s first game. If you need a place to watch the first game of the season for the Angels, try these places.

The Salty Dawg

A great place to catch the game, at The Salty Dawg you’ll find a full menu with great burgers and much more. More importantly, you’ll find the coldest beers in town. Plenty of televisions adorn the walls, so no matter where you sit in the bar, you won’t miss a minute of the action. The Salty Dawg can get crowded – and it’s always a lively crowd – so if you plan to visit, make sure you get there early enough that you can get a seat.

Calivino Wine Pub
2410 E Katella Ave.
Anaheim, CA 92806
(714) 939-7735
www.calivinowinepub.com

Sports bars are great places to watch a game because of the abundance of televisions. However, if you’re looking for a more intimate place to catch the game, Calivino is a great choice. There is only one television on the wall, but when a game is happening, it will be on the television. Also, you’ll find a rotating selection of great craft beers and some amazing wines to enjoy while you watch the game.
