We paid our first visit to Citi Field yesterday. We did not try to visit Danny Meyer’s restaurants, Shake Shack and Blue Smoke (see red arrow, above). That area was packed all game long, despite the rain and a crowd well short of a sell-out. I figure we would have missed at least a couple of innings just to get there and back.
Honestly, I don’t understand the point of paying $90 for a game ticket, only to stand in line for mediocre burgers and barbecue.
The game got started (above left) and was halted in the 8th inning due to rain (above right). It later resumed, only to see the Mets lose 3–1.
