Yesterday, we shared 12 of the best Opening Day parties: the coolest spots to celebrate this spring rite of baseball.

In case that wasn’t enough Opening Day action for you, we’ve rounded up four more spots that you should be visiting today. Read on for our picks.

Have fun out there today, be safe, and #LetsGoTigers!

Punch Bowl Social

1331 Broadway

Believe it or not, there are some people who come downtown for Opening Day and aren’t even diehard Tigers fans. We can’t really blame them. Even if you don’t know your bullpen from your dugout, the atmosphere on Opening Day is pretty awesome. If you have a baseball novice in your crew, they would probably appreciate all the non-baseball activities and scrumptious gastropub fare of Punchbowl Social (PBS). In fact, everyone would probably enjoy a cornhole match or a round of Take Me Out to the Ballgame, karaoke style.

There will still be plenty of flatscreen TVs for the Tigers fans who don’t want to miss any of the action, as well as radio promotions and specials on food and bevs. Scarf down some truffle kettle chips and swig a Brooklyn Lager for just $6 each.

Old Shillelagh

349 Monroe St.

Old Shillelagh is an Opening Day tradition that’s been going strong for more than 40 years. It’s three floors of nonstop partying. They also have a massive heated tent in their parking lot. Even with all that space, this popular spot is likely to be jammed to the gills all day long. But that just makes things more festive.

House band Black Mist will be performing live on the second floor, rousing the crowd with Irish sing-a-longs, and the D3troit P3op1e Mov3rz will be jamming out in the lot. Their kitchen is open until 1:30 a.m. so you can fuel up with bar bites any time of day. Admission costs $10 at the door. They’ve been open since 7 a.m.

Dilla’s Delights

242 John R.

There won’t be beer or baseball viewing, but there will be sugary fried doughballs and hip hop music, and that’s enough to get us excited. The long-awaited Dilla’s Delights is opening for a special, Opening Day sneak preview today. They’ve been slinging donuts since 5 a.m. so hurry over for your sweet fix.

Nemo’s

1384 Michigan Ave.

It may not be walking distance from the stadium, but to us Nemo’s will always be synonymous with Detroit baseball. This spot has been hosting Opening Day fans for 50 years. Even if you’re not going to the game, this will be a crazy fun spot to spend the afternoon. Expect to see drink specials and live music by the Polish Muslims, beginning at 4:30 p.m. When you need to refuel, Nemo’s has some of the best burgers in town: a simple, un-fussed with meal of juicy beef patties cradled in between two soft buns. Ketchup, mustard, pickles, done.

Doors open at 8:30 a.m. Oh, they’ll have free shuttle service to and from the game, too. You can avoid the spiked parking rates downtown and enjoy door-to-door service inside a heated vehicle instead of braving the chilly April temps.
