We'll be tailgating before each of these outings!
Gates should open around 4pm, so try to be early to make sure you get in to secure a spot. The Mets are expecting large crowds for each of these games, so the lot can fill up pretty quickly.
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.
Even if you're not sitting with us, you're welcome to come by. More the merrier, so tell your friends. Bring your own grills, food, drinks... 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.
We'll be getting to Billy's Sports Bar at around 5pm before each game. We've been meeting here the last few years as it's the largest bar in the area. We don't typically get special drink deals, but they do have reasonable prices. If we can work out a deal, we'll post an update here.
The bar is located on the corner of River Ave and 161st street (856 River Ave) under the train station. You can't miss it.
Let's wrap up around 6:30 and head in the seats as a group.
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.
