IMPORTANT UPDATE (9/7)!!! We are switching parking lots for this tailgate party! We're normally in the MARINA EAST LOT, but for this one we'll be in the MARINA WEST LOT.
Thank you to the Mets for helping us secure this new location! This area is smaller, but it will not be open to the tennis crowd, so we should be set with plenty of spots and space for our crew.
We recommend showing up by 2pm! The surrounding area will still be hectic due to the Subway Series capacity crowd, and US Open traffic.
Type 1 Marina Road Queens, NY or World’s Fair Marina Restaurant & Banquet in GPS or if you're taking an Uber or Lyft.
PLEASE SEE THE BELOW MAP TO GET FAMILIAR WITH WHERE TO GO! Instead of entering Citi Field through the Bullpen Gate after the tailgate, it's a shorter walk to the left field entrance.
The game is at 7:40pm, and there will be a special 9/11 pre-game ceremony. As usual the ballpark gates will open 2 hours before first pitch, and we should be in to our seats no later than 6:50. So plan to start cleaning up to head in from the tailgate around 6:00.
Also, our friends from PIT VIPER will be joining forces at the tailgate, and they'll be bringing a free pair of sunglasses for every fan sitting with us that night! No, if you miss the tailgate, we won't ship them to you. If you don't know about Pit Viper yet, click HERE and browse their site. Their "Sunglasses From The Future" are wild, and a perfect alignment for T7LA.
Not only are they giving out free pairs, they're giving back! Along with your free pair of sunglasses Pit Viper will be sharing a promo code. That code will get you 10% off their website, and 50% of that sale will be donated to another friend of ours, Tuesday's Children. They are a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a lifetime healing for families who have been forever changed by terrorism, military conflict or mass violence.
GET THERE EARLY FOR YOUR PAIR!
If you're new to the group you're highly encouraged to come by. DIVE RIGHT IN. Introduce yourself and get the camaraderie started before we get to the seats.
If you'd like to bring your own grills, drinks, and snacks, you're more than welcome to, but please respect the lot and make sure you CLEAN UP after yourselves.
Also, nobody likes a mooch, so please don't go rummaging through coolers that don't belong to you. If you're feeling generous and you'd like to share, that's totally your call, but come prepared.
Hit the tailgate on Saturday July 9th as we prepare to celebrate Keith Hernandez! If you aren't capable of growing your own luxurious mustache for the occasion, we'll have hundreds of them up for grabs. Come get one before you head inside.
Come out to our tailgate party on June 18th before the Mets take on the Marlins at Citi Field. The game starts at 4:10pm which is perfect for a pre-game meet up. Swing by to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down a couple cold ones.
