Citi Field: Feasting on a Dime Edition

Citi Field: Feasting on a Dime Edition

I have a backlog of baseball posts to get through, from my West Coast trip to all the visits to Citi Field I’ve made this year.  The food has been excellent, per usual, but you know… my team’s out of the running.  I’m broke from all this eating, the tickets, the whole being a student full time without a paying job thing… it’s getting to me.  And we ARE in a recession (I realize someone in power just announced that the recession is over, but y’know, tell it to those of us looking for a job).  So you want to know: [...]

Citi Field: Bologna Sandwich, Giant Pickle, Seafood

Citi Field: Bologna Sandwich, Giant Pickle, Seafood

Ahhh, my first official game of the season (April 11, 2010), and my first photo of David Wright’s first at bat!  Back to drooling over my man DW, back to normal!  (From October to April – especially after last season - baseball hardly existed to me; from April to October, we add another passion to the list and I obsess over baseball…)  I mentioned new food items for this season and my concerns so I had to check how those played out!  Since there’s now Box Frites behind my seats on the promenade level, I skipped my usual brief walk through [...]

Cheesesteak Chowdown (Philadelphia)

Cheesesteak Chowdown (Philadelphia)

I appear to have an intensely masochistic side, don’t I?  Unfortunately, as I am the bearer of the brunt of all the pain I create, I believe that makes me a bit of a sado-masochist.  As regular readers of this blog will know, I love the Mets.  I’m a baseball fan, but my allegiance lays firmly with the Mets.  (I did root for the Yankees in the last World Series, and don’t see this as a conflict; New York is my home, and my team didn’t make it.  Period.)  I have this intense desire to visit every MLB stadium there [...]

A Guide to Eating at Citi Field

A Guide to Eating at Citi Field

Opening Day 2010 is today; what’s more fitting than sharing all the tricks I picked up eating through CitiField last season?  Fortunately, as a plan ticket holder, I was invited to attend a pre-season workout on Sunday, with the Taste of the City concessions open for fan enjoyment.  Unfortunately, many of the tips/tricks that I wanted to share as a “What to Eat Around CitiField” have turned out to be somewhat obsolete now… BOO.   But first, my time at CitiField previewing: first up as you walk into the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, the new Hall of Fame museum!  It is directly [...]

Citi Field: Blue Smoke, Shake Shack & Fried Dough

Citi Field: Blue Smoke, Shake Shack & Fried Dough

(What, did you think because it’s my blog-birthday, I wouldn’t post?!  Silly people…) The season is over in a few days, though for many Mets fans, the season’s been over for quite a while now.  I wrote parts of this a while back, but hadn’t a chance to post it.  With one last homestand this weekend, maybe it will help you decide what to eat as you mourn the passing of yet another season.  Maybe not.  I won’t be at this weekend’s games, but I will be back next year.  See you around, Citi Field.  I will definitely be following [...]
