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 noon. (GAME IS AT 4:05), so try to be early to make sure you get in to secure a spot. The lot can fill up pretty quickly especially since this is a Saturday game against the Nationals.
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.
We'll be filming some content for the "Orange and Blue Thing" podcast, so look for Darren and Brian if you'd like to take part.
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.
Our first nighttime weekend game of the season! Let's go big for this one. Swing by to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down a couple cold ones.
