Ferg’s-Across the Street From Tropicana Field
This joint serves buckets of beer and baskets of wings for short money. Outdoors with a dj playing and a ton of tv’s it’s a huge party before the game. You really don’t even need to go into the ballpark to get a feeling for Tampa Ray baseball nation. Just about everyone in here is sporting Rays jerseys and caps.
I was surprised that I didn’t see more Red Sox caps but I guess when the Sox have been playing like they have and the home team is in first place all those transplants from up north switch who they root for-sad.
Ferg’s is THE SPOT to hit before the game if you’re ever down here though. The place is jumping on game days.
We scalped tickets for $10 and culd basically sit anywhere we wanted to up and down the first and third base lines or the outfield
