You made it, Twins fans—it’s finally opening day! This year’s opener on Monday, April 11 is against the Chicago White Sox, and leading up to the highly anticipated day is a culmination of events put on by the Twins and other venues in the 'Cities. Celebrate the beginning of baseball season all day long!

The day begins bright and early at 6 a.m. for a free breakfast next to the Twins Majestic Clubhouse Store. Dance to a DJ and listen to live music in the afternoon (refer to the official schedule for times and location.) Other special appearances and events will be happening throughout the game, with gates to Target Field opening at 1 p.m. (The first 30,000 fans to enter will receive a free hoodie sweatshirt!)

Want to park just once and visit nearby bars and restaurants? MnMo food critics Jason DeRusha and Joy Summers list their favorite places to go before and after Twins games for some of the best drinks & dishes in a walkable distance. (Don’t want to drive downtown? These Metro Transit bus, light-rail, and Northstar Commuter Rail routes will transport you to Target Field.)

If you’re looking to talk stats with other passionate Twins fans, Kieran’s, located across the street from Target Center, is the place to go to find a sea of people donning red and blue Twins apparel outside on the corner patio (unpredictable MN weather permitting, of course).

City Works Restaurant on Hennepin is offering 25 percent off local brews on opening day, and Uptown’s Herkimer is featuring a package deal that includes a ticket to the game, snacks, beer, and a bus ride to and from Target Field, all for just $38.

Don’t feel guilty leaving the little ones at home because you can bring them to Target Field later in the week for the first ever Kids Opening Day on Sunday, April 17. They can play in the Fun Zone, and the first 5,000 kids will receive a Brian Dozier Kids Glove.

Whether you're a diehard fan or a casual attendee, the home opener is always full of excitement. Root, root, root for the home team!
