MAY 31 UPDATE IMPORTANT! PARKING
Please E-mail me for my cell or any other info. You need. My Phone e-mail is [masked]
This is a link to parking at the stadium! In the picture of parking you will see gate 8 and parking area C if you look at the back between gate 8 & 6 that is where we will meet. If you take the train you will see the train steps let you out between lot F & G. from there you walk down the steps & go towards lot C.
Now If anyone is coming by car it gets interesting. The Mets have a funny rule…. they have preferred parking in most of the lots around the stadium including Lot C and gate 8. It is up to the gate keeper to let in general parking people like us or not. It could be by the game & or gate keeper…..yes this is nuts. So far it is only me in a car so I will get there early & get in. (I hope).
It’s a long story but after I was told this is the spot it has now became a day to day thing with us being allowed to park in there. So I wrote the Mets & said how can anyone plan an event with these rules. I have an e-mail from them last night that said GET THERE EARLY & You should get in. I am printing this & showing it to anyone that might question me or try to stop me.
1) I will be glad to forward it to you along with my Cell so you can print it & show it to security guards, police or the ticket taker. Just send me a PM & ask for my e-mail & this link.
2) If you don’t need your car in this lot Park where you want & come on over to lot C.
If you talk to people this should not be a problem!
Again, this is only for anyone with a car…..the rest should have no problem just come on down.
UPDATE ON MAY 12
Sat JUNE 2nd Cards/Mets at Citi Field Game is at 4:10 gates open at 1:10 3 hours before game. I will be there at 12:30 just to save some spots.
I have a full tailgating grill. Parking is $20.00
Enter Gate 8 as soon as you pay go right to Lot C …….. So again it’s enter gate 8 –pay----go right------ until you get to the fence in lot C.
From the Trains this spot is near the LF fence Entrance...... If you come off the trains you would go down the steps take a left & enter the parking lot in front of you. Just keep walking towards the other end. Look up at the posts until you see lot C…..then look for the fence. Get there early to get a good parking space.
I have a RED (What other color?) Red Durango with CT plates R/W/B tents and a Grill attached to my bumper.
I have a Grill that can hold around 12 Burgers & 6 to 8 dogs at a time with a fast turnover rate. I have tables some folding chairs & a tent. I will bring a cooler and some other things. Depending on how many are going we may need another grill & coolers. How do you all want to do the food & drinks? I can bring extra Ketchup, mustard, plates, cups Napkins. Let’s try to make this work if you all want.
Rules at Citi field
Tailgating will be permitted only under the following conditions:
• No open flames of any type. NO CHARCOAL GRILLS just gas
• Only one parking stall may be used.
• Consumption of alcohol is prohibited. People put beer in cups
It is illegal to consume alcoholic beverages on the sidewalks or in the parking lots. Anyone doing so will be subject to arrest.
• Inappropriate or dangerous behavior will not be allowed.
• For security reasons no trash bins are located in Citi Field parking lots. Guests should bag trash for pick up.
There are bars at the stadium that you can go into.....but my feeling is you do that all winter in the city so let’s try outside. We can all pick a better spot for next year at that time.
IF IT RAINS HARD THERE IS A BAR/Restaurant ON THE OTHERSIDE OF THE STADIUM! I tailgate football all the time so a little rain does not bother me.
