Take me out to the ball game….lets head to a Yankees Game.
I’ve been trying to go see a Yankees Game for a year, but when Groupon had a deal for $22 tickets, I was in. Heading out to the Bronx and Yankee Stadium is pretty easy and accessible on the subway as it takes about 25 minutes from Grand Central Station. And once you roll up to the Stadium, you start to feel the buzz.
Heading up to the cheap seats, $22 will get you the second highest level behind first base – really not that bad. But what isn’t impressive is the whopping $11 for a beer ($15 if you buy the bottle from the vendor in the stands!). So a hotdog, fries and beer will set you back a mere $24. But while you’re at a Yankees Game, you’ve got to do it.
A perfect night for a game, we settled in for the night with our dogs, beer and what wouldn’t be the most action packed game. Even dirty dog Derek Jeter (Google Derek Jeter gift baskets) who’s retiring this year was a bit of a let down striking out. But with all the trivia games and the singing of “Take me out to the ball game” in the seventh inning, it was an entertaining night out.
