Now that we're well into 2010 it seems silly to keep doing this, but there's plenty of newbies on the site, and it's cool for some of this stuff to see the light of day.
From April 2009, as we got to know Citi Field, Dan got to meet the guy in charge of the beer.
Out beyond center field at Citi Field is Taste of the City- the concession area that everyone (from the Times to NY Magazine) is talking about. This is where you will find Danny Meyer's Shake Shack and Blue Smoke stands,as well as Box Frites and Nona's Deli.
But for me, the happiest moment on Sunday was when I met Will. Will is the man in charge of Big Apple Brews, a beer oasis that will make any beer aficionado smile. A 4-sided,12 door refrigerator stocks dozens of micro and imported beers - and the selection is constantly changing based on sales and consumer feedback.
I met Will while gazing at a bottle of Longboard Lager from Hawaii's Kona Brewing Company. According to Will it was a big seller over the weekend. Not so much the Kirin or Tiger (which only sold "maybe 4 bottles").
Go check out the selection and tell Will the MetsPolice sent you.
If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.

I asked fans for a list of Mets traditions, and we didn't come up with many. How is Banner Day any harder to have than a Mr. Met Dash? Either way it's people walking on dirt. Click the pic for the list.

A collection of anecdotes related to Mets tickets, and my suggestion the Mets return 7 game packs and make Promenade Left the place to be. Click the pic.
