Yesterday went out to NYC to meet up with some friends from my previous job. The main highlight was to go to a Yankee game, but we decided to meet up earlier to hang out. Headed into Penn and met up at the bar. Started off with a Jack and Coke while the rest of the guys had a couple already.
After finishing our drinks we headed over to Barcade to hang out before the game. Barcade is a bar that has old arcade games that you can play. I got a few dollars worth of tokens and played Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghouls N Ghosts, RBI baseball, Marvel v Capcom 2 and some Dayton Racing. Then I had some Tetris Tots.
We left there and headed up to Yankee Stadium. Since it was the weekend and the MTA is renovating until 2050 at this point, all the trains were running on different tracks. We had to take probably 3 different trains and walk to a few different stations because trains weren’t stopping at all of the stops. Luckily we left when we did because we got to the stadium just in time. I got food and drinks for the guys and we sat down right at first pitch.
We sat in the 200 section, which isn’t that bad. It was pretty humid in the stadium and the Yankees got beat pretty bad. We decided to leave in after the 7th to try and beat traffic. Getting back to Penn wasn’t too horrible with the train maintenance. Got a Jamba Juice smoothie for the ride home and caught my train home.
It was nice NYC adventure. My next adventure will be a Hamptons long weekend for a family friend wedding in June. Better rest up.
