Topps is hosting a pair of viewing parties for MLB Opening Day; one in New York and the other in Chicago, giving away free drinks and prizes for fans who sign up to watch games. Both will be held at Bill’s Bar & Burger restaurants.
The Topps Takeover at Bills will be held on Thursday, March 28 with the New York event slated to run from 1 to 3 PM and the Chicago party taking place from 4-6 PM.
Both big league teams in each city will be playing simultaneously on that day with the Yankees hosting the Orioles and the Mets playing the Nationals in Washington in the early afternoon. The Cubs will play the Rangers with the White Sox facing Kansas City later in the day.
Topps will be giving away 2019 baseball cards and holding contests with prizes that include Topps swag and tickets to upcoming games while the bars stream the Opening Day games. Free beer is among the incentives for fans and collectors.
The New York restaurant is in Rockefeller Center at 16 W. 51st St. In Chicago, the address is 30 E. Hubbard St.
