1) Our battlin’ Bucs take on the Colorado Rockies, in the first game of a three-game home stand. The Pirates have been “mudders,” in the start of the season, defying cold and rain, and even snow, to get off to a great beginning. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if this level of success continues all the way through September! First pitch tonight at 7:05 p.m. PNC Park, 115 Federal St., North Shore.
2) Blush Gentleman’s Club Downtown is known for their beautiful woman dancers and bartenders, but did you also know they have a fun sports bar on their third floor. The sports bar offers ten big screen HD TVs; top shelf Bourbon, whiskey, Scotch, and tequila; a nice selection of craft beers in bottles and on tap; and a kitchen that stays open until 1 a.m., it’s a great place for sports action and more. Menu offerings include small plates like coconut crusted shrimp, shrimp cocktail, wings, Tuscan flatbread, and chicken quessadilla. Main dishes include their Burghr’s, sandwiches including cheesesteak and grilled chicken, tacos, steaks, and salmon. There’s even a desert selection. Blush often runs food and drink specials and currently has some for Pen’s games, Taco Tuesdays, and Yuengs and Wings Mondays. No admission charge for the sports bar. 135 9th St.
