Get to the ballpark bright and early to tailgate with us this Opening Day! Hopes are high and we're ready to rumble. New season, clean slate, let's party.
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.
Gates should open around 9am (GAME IS AT 1:10), 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 the first game of the regular season.
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 fresh 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.
The game is at 1:10 so prepare to head in around NOON so we can get to our seats in time for the opening ceremony and National Anthem.
