Today at 1:05 p.m. sharp, the Phillies play there first home game at Citizens Bank Park, and based on how many places are opening early and/or rolling out home opener specials, we’re guessing the phanaticism caused by our Phightin’s is already reaching a phever pitch. And for the their first romp on home turf Pub & Kitchen is opening its doors early at 11 a.m., with the kitchen firing up at 12 noon. Throughout the game the P&K; crew will offer complimentary hot dogs, or for however long they last.

• Paesano’s is getting in on the action too. Both of Peter McAndrew’s temples of divine sandwiches are also opening early, and offering complimentary potatoes with every sandwich sold. [PaesPhillyStyle/Twitter]

• If you’re going to the game, go early and keep an eye out for Guapos Tacos. Iron Chef Garces’ taco truck will be parked at the third base gate, and serving up its tacos and more. [GuaposTacos/Twitter]

• Starr’s Frankford Hall opens early at 12 noon, and will have happy hour specials on throughout today’s game against the Marlins.

• In South Philly, the venerable Pub on Passyunk East is serving dollar dogs during the home opener (and every other daytime game this season), and pouring specially priced Root, Rhuby and Snap cocktails.
