R.I.P. Thirsty Thursdays … Hello, Tecate Thirstdays


The Fresno Grizzlies’ popular Thirsty Thursdays been nixed for this season. But fear not, fans of $1 beer. You can still swill hops on the cheap at The Chuk during Thursday night home games this season — you’re just going to have to change your vernacular.

The $1 beer night is now called Tecate Thirstdays. On the surface, it might appear that this is just a marketing change to satisfy beer vendor Tecate, but that’s not the case. 

In fact, Thirsty Thursdays is trademarked by another minor league baseball team, Asheville Tourists. Rather than dealing with a list of licensing requirements to use the name, the Grizzlies just came up with their own. 

So, in short: Name is changed, but the point is the same: “Fans can purchase $1 12-ounce Tecate and Tecate Light through the end of the 5th inning, as well as $1 soda all game long,” the Grizzlies said, in announcing this year’s weekday promo schedule.

If they do plan Taco Truck Throwdown this year, make sure they trademark it so the Asheville Tourists don’t STEAL it, by god.
