At Patterson Park Bar in the HeightsAstros games are taken very seriously. The family-owned business opened in April 2022. 

"We’re trying to blend Halloween with the World Series here, so we’re going to have little trick or treat bags with some dark blue and orange Jello shots, some orange frozen drinks," said Brendan Murphy, one of the owners. "We’ve got our skeletons out there, and they'll be wearing some Phillies jerseys."

Murphy says the bar will be doubling staff to prepare for the expected record crowds on game days.

"We’re bringing everybody in, so it’s all hands on deck, fully staffed," Murphy said. "We’re going to have plenty of great food trucks, hot dog carts and plenty of parking."
