Wow, my brain didn't register this nugget from Mets Blog earlier today when Matt posted:
This week’s MetsBlog poll, presented by McFadden’s, which will soon be opening a new bar in Citi Field, accessible from the street and from inside the ballpark...
That's awesome. We'll actually have somewhere to hang out before and after Mets games!!! Well, I assume, I mean the Mets couldn't screw up a bar, right?
Now hopefully McFadden's will treat Mets fans with respect and not sell us $15 bottles of beer. We all understand it won't be dollar drafts, but somewhere there's a respectful medium between ballpark prices and being honorable.
I bet this will be a big hit...maybe we have found a meeting place for the Blue Cap Army Opening Day Gathering, details TBD. Anyone up for meeting at the bar?
Wow I can't believe I said "meet at the bar" for a Mets game. Let's see what this McFadden's might look like...let's visit the Philly version.
This was the first image in the photo gallery. I will refrain from commenting because I'm hoping to sway McFadden's to welcome our Blue Cap Army for the opener.
It's hard to find a shot of the actual bar...or maybe I stink at searching...well, I guess we'll know Opening Day.
McFadden's is on 42nd St and 2nd or 3rd Abe. Very much reminds me of a college bar. Girls dancing on the bar packed with women. I will assume it will be a different atmosphere at the ballpark but it won't be high end like that first pic may suggest
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.
Ticket office anecdotes
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.
