even I'll still goto the stadium... for food and good company, obv. not for baseball :P

anyone on the medical team fired yet? no... it's still a joke, and the worst thing for them was winning against da jankees, and now getting some mometum vs. the phllies. surely no changes afoot.

I think it's funny that they'll be going to visit Randolph and Peterson this weekend, and the situation is NO DIFFERENT than it was 6 years ago. :funny1: it's like a parrellel to LOST.. 6 years, and I got nowhere. :lol: :lol:

we used to buy Mets tickets from the kiosk at King Kullen - saw game 162 back in 1999 that way - fan appreciation day turned into pandemonium as the Mets forced game 163 in Cincinatti. times have definitely changed, and i hate HATE HATE the tiered pricing they do.

agreed, hit Shake Shack early when the lines are short, then hit Mama's of Corona in the 4th or 5th inning. i'd probably tap the Frites joint while i was there, just to be sure, as well.

We haven't made it to the Shake Shack yet. The line's always several innings long by the time we get in. :sad:

yeah, i always leave work nice and early, both to avoid traffic on the way in and to get there at gates open to experience the place when it's empty. especially the eating portions of the new digs.

I am new to the forum, just dropping in to say hi. Love talking baseball. You picked a great game to attend tonight Silent..Mets blanked the Phils & twice in row :crying:

Seems like Jose Reyes is getting into a little groove. He's always done very well against the Phillies. Mets are one of best home teams in league, but hopefully Phils can avoid the series sweep tomorrow.

Close division race so far this season. Good game tonight all..well at least on Mets behalf. Good luck rest of season.

The guy I went with, a die-hard Phillies fan, confessed that their biggest fear is Optimal Reyes. We saw that last night. What we didn't see was our biggest fear, Jimmy Rollins. I enjoyed watching Ryan Howard look like a fool going after change-ups. Change, strike 2. Another change, strike 3. Twice! :lol:

It filled in as the game went on. Traffic sucked. I left Stamford at 5 and got to the stadium at 7. No Shake Shack.

I never made it to the center field food court. They now have Blue Smoke and Box Fritte on the Promenade behind home. My friend ignored my advice and attempted to go to Shake Shack in the 3rd inning. He missed a whole inning and ended up in the Promenade food court for his sandwich.
:hit:

There is no smoky bacon dipsaus this year. It's been replaced by bacon aioli.

Ambience: Some Mets fans are really obnoxious to Phillies fans. I know it's the beer talking, but it's a freakin' game. They really need to ditch the sound effects. It's as if they're just making noise because they fear a quiet crowd that's watching the game. If we want to make noise, we will. There's no need for a sound effect after every pitch.

yeah, you don't know life until you've done a Shake Shack burger and Box Frites while hanging over the great wall in left field chatting with the opposing team's relievers about how tasty the food you're eating is during BP. :lol:

glad to hear there's a Box Frites satellite upstairs now. but truth be told, if i'm in the Promenade, i'm getting a Mama's sub. for less than $10, it's easily the best thing around.

yeah, you had me at "misery". oh, and if they do move, what a disaster that'll be. Queens needs a hockey team about as badly as Brooklyn needs a basketball team. oh, wait... :bang:

Oh if you ever have the opportunity for the beer/food concierge service...don't do it. It took 20 minutes and I had to flag the guy down cuz he couldn't find my seat and it took me 3 times to assure him that was my beer and I ordered it!:sad:

There's another one behind home in the Promenade. Only thing is there's no view of the field and you'd have to watch the game on the screens.

the availability of different Brooklyns around the entire place has made the beer-buying experience a simple and enjoyable one. if i'm getting Box Frites, it's a Belgian Brooklyn. if i'm at Shake Shack, i'll get their brew. if i'm just buying a beer...i'll go to the vendors who all sell Brooklyn Lager in cans. perfect.

As the summer wears on, go for a Hoegarden (sp?). Fantastic weissbier & great on a hot day.

if they have the Hoegarden anyplace other than at the beer kiosk, i'll try it. two people serving a line of 40 people on a hot day? i'll hit Box Frites. :lol:

they should rent out the wiffle field for competitive wiffle games on non-game days at new Shea. that would be pretty much kickass. live pitching. aluminum bats. etc.

I think this is something new (not like behind homeplate waiter service)...my seats are good but not that good. It's not a regular thing for my seats (sec 110 1st base side between first and rt field)...perhaps they will get the hang of it as the season rolls on :dunno: but I think I'll just pick my lazy ass up and walk the 30 ft to the beers going forward...or just wait for the beer guy to come around!
