Citi Field

 

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Sara, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Citi Field

 

St. Johns played Georgetown in baseball on Sunday at the Mets new home, Citi Field. It was a soft opening for the stadium, to work out some glitches before the two exhibition games against the Red Sox, before the real opening on April 13th. Sara had tickets and was in attendance. She recounted her experience with the guys when she got back.

It was awesome. I can’t wait to go back.”

 

Wow. That good?”

 

Better. Expensive, but better.”

 

Beer hit $10?”

 

No, actually it was ‘reasonable’. Slightly cheaper than last year. The Shake Shack stuff was only slightly marked up.”

I can get Shake Shack here in Manhattan anyway.”

 

They got beer in that new stadium?”

 

That’s a stupid question. But you’ll appreciate this, they’ve got some unique Brooklyn Brewery beverages.”

 

They brought over the Shackmeister Ale from Shake Shack? Blue Smoke had one too right?”

 

Yeah. Blue Smoke Blend or something. The Box Frites and the taco place each had their own too, which I think might be Citi Field exclusives.”

Now that’s cool. I hope the Yankees have world class beer.”

 

Everywhere should have awesome beer.”

 

Wasn’t it a crappy day yesterday? How’d your stadium hold up?”

 

Oh, it was cold. It’s more open, which seems like it means it’ll be colder. I didn’t care about the game though, so I left before it was over. I think Georgetown won.”

 

Sightlines good and all?”

 

A couple of spots have some issues, but nothing too major. A couple of overhangs, some outfield seats understandably have problems seeing some of the corners.”

 

Guess the biggest drawback is that the Mets play there then huh?”

 

Sara punches Frank in the shoulder.

 

Can it. You know the Mets will do better this year than your silly Yankees in their House That Ruth Didn’t Build.”

 

Is that a wager I smell?”

 

No, that’s Scott.”

 

I was on my way to the shower, but I wanted to hear Sara’s review.” Scott departs.

 

You’re on Frank. The Mets will do better than the Yankees. What’s the prize?”

 

I win, you buy us Yankees playoff tickets, and vice versa.”

 

What if neither make the playoffs?”

 

If neither make the playoffs, we take the money we would’ve spent, and buy enough beer to keep us drunk through the World Series.”

 

There isn’t enough beer in New York for that If the Mets blow it again.”

Shack Shack Snack


Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Shake Shack Snack

I arrived home yesterday in the afternoon to find all five of my roommates home and bustling about in the living room.

And there’s Ann. Now we have to go!”

Where are we going?”

Sara insisted since we all seemed to be around this evening, we should all get dinner together. You just clinch the deal. We’d decided on Shake Shack if that’s okay with you?”

Sounds excellent, let me just put my stuff down and check my mail.”

Now remember, behave yourselves on my train.” Billy says as we board the 6 train.

We take an uneventful train ride down to 23rd street and start walking over to Madison Square Park, where Shake Shack is. It’s a nice evening, and lots of people have the same idea. It’s a popular spot anyway, so no one is surprised when we get on line with what looks like at least a 30 minute wait before we can order food.

Burger, or hot dog? So many tough decisions today.”

Tough decisions? What else did you have to decide today?”

Well I had to decide whether I wanted to suffer through the View, or get up and find the remote.”

What’d you decide?”

I don’t remember. I feel asleep and when I woke up Frank was watching some poker game.”

Don’t you ever get enough poker?”

Would you believe me if I said I was studying for work?” Frank says, feigning innocence.

Where are you going Billy?” Ann asks as Billy suddenly starts walking away.

Going into the McDonalds to use the bathroom. I’ll be right back.”

Conversation dies down a bit as we continue to wait in line, contemplate what we’re going to order and watch and listen to the people and dogs around us. Many people bring their dogs to this park anyway, and with the weather finally becoming warmer, there are a ton of people taking advantage by walking their dogs.

Man in front of us: “So do you think they’re real?”

Woman with him: “I don’t know. I’m really curious, how do we find out?”

Man: “I know someone at work that could find out.”

Woman: “Okay. We’ll have to arrange something then.”

I have no idea what they were talking about, but just then Billy came back, carrying a large container of fries and I stopped listening.

Billy! You’re going to ruin your appetite!”

It’s just a couple of fries. Relax. You want some?”

OOo, I’ll take some.

Do I want custard with my dinner?”

Of course!”

Well what are you getting to eat?”

Definitely a Chicago dog, I love those things. And probably a double shack burger.”

That’s a lot of food. It depends on the flavor then.”

The flavor’s cinnamon toast, I checked before we left. I’d say go for it, it sounds tasty.”

Okay, but if it’s too much, I’m vomiting in your bathroom.”

We’re almost to the front of the line! Yah! Let Sara go first.”

Why me?”

Because you eat so slowly. You need the head start.”

Good idea.”

We ordered our food and found two tables, pushed them together and began eating out food.

This frozen custard tastes a little like Cinnamon Toast Crunch.”

Really? I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Let me try some!”

You can have it. I’m full.”

This was a good idea. Who decided we should go here?”

I think it was me. One of the customers this morning was talking about it. Put me in the mood.”

Wasn’t that me? You put way too much whipped cream on my frappachino and then I told you we should goto Shake Shack for dinner.”

Oh. That was you? I’m so in the zone when I’m baristaing that I don’t notice who I’m serving.”

Bullshit. I always see you noticing those two hot girls that come in around three on Fridays.”

I see you know exactly when they come in too.”

I never said that I didn’t notice them though.”

Yes Yes, girls are cute. It was Sara that suggested this place for dinner. Excellent choice. Let’s go home now.”
