Besides the usual catching up with friends and tailgates, there’s the new Mikkeller NYC brewery to check out. 60 taps and a cool space just outside the gates? That’s a must see.
Once inside I need to allow myself enough time to to a loop of the stadium, check out what’s new, what’s changed, what looks different, and any unreported new food items. With a sold out crowd that’s more in the hangout mode than a game-watching mode, that’s harder to do efficiently than usual. I’m particularly interested to see if there are any new Mikkeller options INSIDE the stadium, or any other new beers in general.
Then it’s just taking in the atmosphere, enjoying being back at a baseball game, and having a good time. Watching the Mets crush the Cardinals and get this season off to a roaring start will just be a bonus. I’m predicting a Todd Frazier home run.
Let’s Go Mets!
