Get In A Routine

For some people the word “routine” means “rut” but it really shouldn’t. Especially when the “routine” in question involves things like seeing classic movies on the big screen or taking in live music with a Gulf view. That’s why we are encouraging you to get into a routine this summer—a routine centered around a few, select, regularly scheduled events that you might take for granted or forget about because they happen so often.

Here are our picks for the best routine worthy events worth planning your summer around.

—Saturday Flicks—

If you’re anything like us, by the time July rolls around you’re looking for a reprieve from the summer elements and some indoor activities to get excited about. Thankfully, the Saenger Theatre is offering just that again this summer.

—Game On—
Blue Wahoos games aren’t exactly on a set weekly schedule, but the daily promotions are. So all you have to do to make a summer routine for yourself is pick a favorite day and mark your calendar for the remaining home games that fall on it. Our vote is Saturday—because who doesn’t love fireworks?

Day By Day Promos
What’s better than a day at the ballpark? A day at the ballpark with free swag and discount snacks, of course—both of which you can get at Wahoos games, depending on the day of the week. Here’s a basic rundown of this season’s regular promotions:

•Give Back Monday—Help various non-profits raise funds by partaking in the 50/50 raffle on Monday nights.
•Fat Tuesday—Every Tuesday, tickets on the Winn-Dixie Party Deck will be sold to individuals as part of an “all you can eat” offer for $21. Restaurants will provide sample size food items for 200 people, while the Blue Wahoos will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, and popcorn during a 90-minute buffet. (Excludes the All-Star Game on Tuesday, June 20.)
•Wahoo Wednesday—Wednesdays are all about different special events and theme nights.
•Thirsty Thursday—Seville Quarter is hosting Thirsty Thursday this season, so you know it’s going to be fun. For starters, you can park for free at Seville, enjoy drink specials and $5 appetizers, and then ride the free Wahoo Choo Choo tram to the stadium. Once at the game, continue to enjoy the drink specials in the park.
•FANtastic Friday Giveaway—If you’re coming to a Friday night game, make sure you get there early because the first 2,000 fans will get special promotional items—like a Kazoo Bobblehead courtesy of Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union, which will be the giveaway item during the Friday, June 9 game.
•Saturday Fireworks—Win or lose, the Wahoos celebrate Saturday night home games with a fireworks display.
•McDonalds Family Sunday—Kids can run the bases and play catch on the field after the game on Sunday afternoons.

*All giveaways, promotions and event dates are subject to change
