Swizzler, the D.C. food truck serving environmentally conscious versions of American cookout classics, celebrates the first MLB season for its standalone location near Nationals Park with a days-long deal for burger and baseball fans. Any customer who swings by wearing Nats gear will get a free order of fries and a medium soda or tea with the purchase of any burger or veggie burger (a $3.85 value). The in-person promo is valid from Thursday, April 1, to Sunday, April 4, from 2 p.m. to close (1259 First Street SE). In other Natitude news, head to Patsy’s American and Randy’s Prime Seafood & Steaks in Tysons Corner to view new commemorate art representing the Nationals’ 2019 World Series title. Next door at Best Buns Bakery & Cafe, Nationals-themed sugar cookies are for sale. And TAP Sports Bar at MGM National Harbor hosts a watch party with specials and giveaways tonight from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The Nationals Opening Day game set for Thursday, April 1, has reportedly been postponed for COVID concerns after an undisclosed Nats player tested positive.
