The Charleston RiverDogs have never shied away from the tough issues. With hard-hitting promotional nights like the 2016 Bobblection, Tonya Harding Mini Bat Giveaway, and Jorts Night, the RiverDogs have tackled some of the most controversial and poignant topics that have shaped the fabric of our nation. With that spirit of discourse in mind, the RiverDogs will host Legalize Marinara Night on Thursday, April 20 at 7:05pm at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park.

"Marinara is a perfectly safe substance with proven medical benefits backed by decades of research and huge potential gains for taxpayers if regulated," said RiverDogs director of promotions Nate Kurant. "We are open to hearing both sides of this issue as we open our gates at The Joe on what we expect to be a record night for our concessions.

Fans will be greeted by a mountain of marinara to welcome them at the main gate, and the first 500 fans will receive a bag of oregano upon entry to begin the evening's festivities.

In-game promotions will feature marinara trivia to educate fans on the saucy issue. Patrons will have the option to add a side of marinara to any concessions purchase with over 100 gallons of marinara being shipped to the ballpark for one night only.

It's also a Budweiser Thirsty Thursday presented by 95SX featuring dollar beers in the revamped and expanded Budweiser Ashley View Pub. DJ Natty Heavy will be on hand spinning the chiller stylings of Phish, Bob Marley, and the Grateful Dead.
