Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2016 at 12:19 PM

If you've got the snowy day blues, we've got the antidote.

The St. Louis Cardinals have just unveiled their set of special theme days for 2016 — and so whether you suffer from a peanut allergy and are looking for seats that won't kill you, you've been holding your breath for a Jason Isringhausen bobblehead, or you just really, really want to celebrate Star Wars from a seat at Busch Stadium, you might want to hop on getting those tickets ASAP.

Among this year's highlights? A series of bobbleheads celebrating the 2006 championship team, a night celebrating the Beatles one-and-only concert at St. Louis, and a host of opportunities to tie one on — from Christmas in July to "Halfway to St. Patrick's Day." (Is this a fun town, or what?)
