7/22 Tailgate Party

We're undefeated at tailgating. Get to the ballpark this Saturday 7/22 to hang before heading in for the game against the A's. 

If you're new to the group you're highly encouraged to hit the tailgate party. DIVE RIGHT IN. Introduce yourself and get the camaraderie started before we even get to the seats. 

We'll get there around 4pm. (GAME IS AT 7:10), so try to be early to make sure you get in to secure a spot. The lot can fill up quickly especially since it's Noah Syndergaard "Thor" bobblehead night.

We'll be set up at our normal spot just past the train station platform. The MTA "Southfield Lot" is located on Roosevelt Avenue just next to the steps to the 7 train. Great location with plenty of room. Check the below map if you're not in the know.

Our season ticket members will be rocking their 2017 jerseys. If you're joining us just for the day,  we ask that you wear orange. We know not everyone was willing or able to pick up the jersey separately, which is totally cool, just wear your favorite orange Mets gear. Some jerseys are still available at our kiosk behind the seats in center field.

Even if you're not sitting with us, you're welcome to come by. More the merrier, so tell your friends. You're encouraged to bring your own grills, drinks, snacks... but make sure you CLEAN UP after yourselves. Nobody likes a mooch, so please don't go rummaging through anyones coolers that don't belong to you. If you're feeling generous and you'd like to share, that's totally your call. Come prepared. 

Even if you're shy, try to say hi. We're all friendly. 

The game is at 7:10pm so prepare to head in around 6:30pm so we're settled in our seats in time for the and National Anthem. 

LET'S GO METS!

Here's our latest episode. Give it a watch and share with your friends. LGM! 

McFadden's pre-game on Friday!

We'll be pre-gaming at McFadden's this Friday before the outing. Since this game is on a weekday, we hit the bar instead of the parking lot. Too much planning, set up and clean up goes in to the tailgate's and a lot of us don't have time to pull that off after work.

Simply wear your '17 jersey or any of our gear that has a T7L logo on it. They'll hook you up with the special prices on any game day (Subway Series excluded).

If you're sitting with us WEAR ORANGE if you want to match with the crew. We'll get there around 4:30pm-ish and head in to the game at 6:30 to be settled in before the National Anthem. See ya there.

This is the first game of the second half. Let's bring the freakin noise and get started on the right foot. 

DRINK SPECIALS:

- $4 Bud or Bud Light 16oz aluminum bottles

- $4 for any draft beer on the lines

- $5 mixed well drinks

Best deals at the ballpark. CAN'T BEAT IT. 

Drink responsibly of course. 

STL Recap

Well, another trip in the books. Not a W in the scorecard, but a fun weekend nonetheless. 1,000 Mets fans from 34 states ventured to Missouri for the Saturday game and while we took the loss, a fun time was had. Songs were sang, beers were drank and new friends were made. 

Instead of writing a boring post recapping the trip, I'll just highlight some of the moments in no particular order. You should try to join us one day.

  1. A lot of us were in town early enough to hit the game on Friday, and that ended up being the only victory of the series. 
  2.  Nelly wasn't lying about the heat in STL. Pretty brutal but bearable.
  3. One of the fans sitting with us, Ben Shapiro, tossed out a ceremonial first pitch. Pretty awesome of the Cardinals to allow a fan of another team to take part in that. A first for their organization.
  4. Pre-game party at Paddy O's was as the kids say, lit. A lot of NY themed music and they even played "Meet The Mets" a couple times. Good drink specials and cheap food. Very hospitable.
  5. Jim Breuer was performing all weekend at a local comedy club. A lot of us caught a set before/after the games. Totally new material and a lot of baseball content. Super funny. He also joined us for the game on Saturday.
  6. The Ballpark Village was pretty awesome. HUGE tv set up, plenty of bars and seating, good prices, cold AC. 
  7. You can drink on the street. There were random beer tubs set up outside hotels and bars on the corners. Pretty cool.
  8. The Cardinals fans and staff were awesome. Super friendly and were happy to have us there. Fun cheering and chanting back and forth throughout the game.
  9. The Hilton was giving out Mets stuffed animals to kids staying at their hotel. SMART.
  10. The "march" to the ballpark, although short, really fun. The locals faces were priceless.

Overall a really fun weekend. Thanks again to everyone who came out to support the Mets and cheer with us. This season has been a let down so far, but as usual we're making the best of it. Our next away game is in just 2 short weeks out in Seattle (sold out). We'll then be in Houston this September. A few tickets left to that one if you'd like to join.

We shot some videos that'll be part of this Thursdays "Orange and Blue Thing" episode. Check that out live on Thursday night at 6pm on FB Live.

See ya soon. LGM!
