Throughout this week many people have mentioned or inquired about viewing parties, tailgates and the like, for ALDS games. I thought it would be helpful to summarize what we know, and help ANers who don't want to get drunk by themselves and/or watch the game alone on a tablet having to change the viewing angles manually.
PLEASE POST IN THE COMMENTS FOR GAME 5 - REQUESTS HAVE BEEN MADE FOR PARTIES IN SACRAMENTO, ORANGE COUNTY, PORTLAND, AND TAILGATE PARTIES

OAKLAND UPDATE FOR GAME 5:
New Parkway Theater
Cheer on the home team as they take on the Tigers in the ALDS and battle towards the World Series. We've got the biggest screens in town, and in this case, size does matter. $5 gets you a seat. Lots of great food and drink to enjoy, all at the New Parkway Theater. Go A's! www.thenewparkway.com
Bars in Oakland:
If you don't have tickets, local Oakland bars are getting into the OAKtober thing. Check out this site for a bunch of bars that will be showing the game and have special A's themed drinks/specials: http://visitoakland.org/uncategorized/oaklands-amped-fever. That link includes the following and others:
- Make Westing will be showing the game on the big screen: 1741 Telegraph Ave. Oakland CA, 94612
- TOAST on College Avenue will celebrate with the "Good Old Green & Gold" cocktail special, with yellow chartreuse, liquor 43, lemon and lime juice, agave nectar, dashes of orange bitters (tears of the Giants!) and a Cava float.
NYC UPDATE FOR GAME 5 (Foley's Manhattan, Pacific Standard Brooklyn):
Fans will be gathering at Foley's in Manhattan for this Game 5:
Brooklyn: Pacific Standard, The unofficial home of the A's in NYC will be rocking all the playoff games, and we implore you to come by and cheer with your fellow displaced A's fans. Pacific Standard is at 82 4th Avenue in Brooklyn, right by about 10 subway lines. They even have a signed Jack Cust photo...
Chicago: Zonis has kindly invited Athletics Nation to watch the games with him at his home in Wrigleyville. I'm sure if it's a big crowd you guys can head to one of the zillion sports bars around and bring the party with you. His email is in his profile which can be accessed here: http://www.sbnation.com/users/Zonis
