My First Mets Game

My parents are Yankees fans, especially now since there's a Korean rookie on the team, but last night, we took advantage of some cheap tickets for the Mets vs. Dodgers game.

Our seats weren't that great (upper, upper deck in far right field), but for less than $20 each, that's a great deal for major league baseball in New York City. Since they were so affordable, we decided to bring my grandmother too.

We decided to take the 7 Train out to Citi Field so that we'd arrive just before the first pitch. Tip: Definitely wait for the Express 7 Train as it's a lot faster than the local 7.

We entered around 6:45PM, so we had some time to visit the Mets Museum and the Team Store where I posed for a few pictures with a Mr. Met statue.

We then went over to the food court area out by center field. We skipped the Shake Shack and Blue Smoke options and went instead for the Pat LeFrieda Meatball sandwich ($14).

Our seats were in the upper deck and facing the setting sun, so we decided to take our time enjoying Citi Field and its amenities before taking our seats. I was able to take a few swings at the Kids ballpark near the food court.

Then we found a hidden little snack that was pretty unique in all our travels. Bacon on a stick by Pig Guy NYC. Not the cheapest bacon out there, but absolutely delicious.  We went with the Salted Caramel ($8.50).

Finally, we took our seats in Section 502, Row 11. While the baseball game was nice to watch, spending time with your family on a beautiful summer night was the real experience.
