Price: free (donations recommended)

If he were alive, George Herman Ruth Jr. — Babe Ruth — would turn 118 years old today. Pat Walsh, owner of Walsh's Corner Cocktails (304 West 85th Street, 816-361-7099), in Waldo, celebrates the Bambino's birthday every year. He'll choose the Yanks over the Royals any day because he believes the team embodies the classiness of baseball. "Pinstripes on the uniforms and no names on the back. Players are clean-cut, no tattoos showing. Even Jason Giambi had to keep his hair cut," Walsh notes. At 5 p.m., Walsh lays out a free ballpark-style food buffet — hot dogs, brats, peanuts and popcorn — to honor his team. (Donations are accepted and forwarded to the Johnny Robinson Boys Home in Monroe, Louisiana). Drinks at the Corner are about the same price as they were when the Yankees lost the World Series in 1981. See cornercocktails.com for more information.
