We're heading to Cincinnati on September 21st to cheer on our Mets, and pre-gaming at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport Kentucky. Yes, Kentucky. Pre-gaming in a different state than the game will be a first for us, but the border is right there, and their backyard biergarten is a perfect fit for our crew.
We have 800 tickets to the game, and we hope to see as many of you as possible at the pre-game! It's always a great way to link up with old friends, make some new ones, and get the good vibes going before we shoot over to the ballpark. TRY TO MAKE IT!
Hofbrauhaus beer has been around for over 400 years, and their first US location opened in Newport Kentucky back in 2003, modeled after the original in Munich. Oktoberfest is huge in the area, so this will be a great spot for our pre-game.
The game is at 4:05, and we plan to get there when Hofbrauhas opens up at 11am. They offered us the biergarten space out back with plenty of tables, giant jenga, cornhole, tv's, food, and of course plenty of beer. Check out their BIER and FOOD menus.
This isn't a private party. If you're hitting the game, and you're a Mets fan, come join us.
We should settle up and plan to leave for the march over to Great American Ballpark around 3:15. It's about a 20 minute walk on The Purple People Bridge over the Ohio River to the game, and we want to be sure not to miss the National Anthem or first pitch.
This latest Mets stretch is a bit deflating, but hopefully the boys get back on track here in the next couple weeks and go on another run. Either way, we're looking forward to a great day with close to 1,000 of you out in Cincinnati.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
