    Is this just for certain groups eating in that area or is it a stand where anyone can pay for a wristband and eat all you want. How much does it cost? And I assume we're talking basic ballpark fare?

    Gary may even have pictures of the stand you needed to visit to eat...
    In 2012 it was in the Pepsi Porch, and in 2013 it was all the way in right field, on the Promenade Level. It may not have specifically/exclusively been section 402 but that's around the area where it was located. From 2013, here's the stand on the Promenade Level...

    I wonder what it’s like after death. Prob’ly it’s like it is b’fore birth. Is it nothing? Non-existence? That’s not hard t’understand, but it’s hard for people t’accept. It’s hard for them to imagine not existing because all of their memories are of their existence, not non-existence. An’ people ain’t too crazy about the idea of themselves not existing. - Harvey Pekar, “Short Weekend: A Story About the Cosmic and the Ordinary,” American Splendor #3, 1978.

    Game Day Seat Upgrades at Citi Field (via cellphone app)

    "All fans in attendance at Mets home games have the ability to upgrade their seats by using the MLB.com At the Ballpark phone application for iPhone and Android phones.

    Season Ticket Holders can upgrade beginning two hours before first pitch, Plan Holders can upgrade 50 minutes before first pitch and individual game ticket buyers can upgrade 20 minutes after first pitch."

    http://newyork.mets.mlb.com/nym/ticketing/upgrades.jsp

    Seems to be a free upgrade, and all season long?

    I guess they will check season / plan ticket qualification based on the barcode on your existing ticket? (Maybe you have to check in by scanning it?)

    I received a similar message.

    I don't think the seat upgrade is free. The app to do it might be free.. but not the seats..

    Someone will need to take this for a test drive this weekend. I am smart-phone-less (and proud of it).


    I do like the fact the app allows you to order food and beverages from your seat... Come to think of it, that could be bad...

    Cheers!

    Four teams offered this last season- AZ, ATL, MINN and OAK. The price varied from $5 to $55 for those teams. I guess more teams are rolling it out this year.
    I used the app last year to get into Citi Field but had my paper tickets as a backup in case it didn't go smoothly. The app just works at the ballpark so you can't check it at home.

    Ah, it's not a free seat upgrade but an in-park upsell. LOL. I wonder if STHs still get the STH pricing, etc.? Or if there is any discount (there should be)?

    I don't think the upgrade is free. Hit learn more. There is a price on the example. I also do not have a smart phone and am proud of it. I have a very low cost calling plan that is not offered anymore, but they keep letting me renew it with no increase. I do not even have texting. I don't want it or need it.

    Random question, I noticed the print at home tickets have the little smart phone scan square... but it specifically says you must print it out because you must show a hard copy at the gate. So does anyone know why the squares are on there to begin with?

    I never noticed that all you can eat stand. How much did they charge?
    I imagine it was difficult to prevent someone from buying one and sharing the food with their family.

    I was there tonight. All u can eat stand no longer there. Tried the LaFrieda meatball sliders. Very good, 12 bucks for three. The cheaper ones on garlic knots are still available at Two Boots. By the way, parking now $22, Big Apple brews/NY craft beers now $9.

    I will say this: the list of "Amazin' Perks" I've received for being a season ticket holder in these win-lean times has gotten pretty amazing. You may call it serving caviar on the Titanic, but it's still caviar

    On Thursday afternoon my account rep called and asked if I was going to be at Saturday's game with a kid. As it so happens, I was planning on going with my whole family. He told me I could nominate 1 or 2 kids to go out onto the field to greet a Mets position player as they took their defensive position for the start of the game. Since I have 3 kids, I decided it was better just to send the one kid most interested in baseball right now - my 10 year old son.

    We and the other participants met at the "42" in the Rotunda and they took him onto the field. I took pictures from our seats in section 112 (another STH perk, come to think of it - these were free Metro Box seats from redeeming a set of the STH ticket vouchers.)

    It turned out that my son went out to home plate to greet the catcher, Travis d'Arnaud. This had a bonus effect - he was there when both managers met there to exchange the lineups with the umpiring crew, all of who said hi and shook his hand. Then, when d'Arnaud did arrive on the scene, his first order of business (before greeting my son) was to receive the ceremonial first pitch to the plate - from Doc Gooden! (When he got back to our seats, my son said Gooden threw wide off the plate and "it was clearly a ball".)

    As a third and final bonus, I recorded the replay of the game on DVR when I got home and watched it this morning - my son actually made it on TV by standing, on the field, behind d'Arnaud as Gooden threw home (Gary Cohen also wryly noted that Gooden had "command issues").

    The game was very exciting, unfortunately (for a Mets fan) marred by a blown non-call against the Mets, several defensive miscues by Mets pitchers, a baserunning gaffe and a booming, sure-fire HR that died at the wall by Lucas Duda, a pile of more swinging Ks from Granderson and a loss in the end with the winning runs on base and our man d'Arnaud making the last out with the bases loaded after going 2-4 earlier in the game (on a slick play by the Braves SS). Oh well. Still unforgettable!

    Possible Stub Hub Reprint Error WRT Club Access

    Received a voice mail message from Stub Hub yesterday informing me that the Club Access promised in my listing didn't transfer to the ticket, and the buyer was questioning about it.

    I didn't get the message until today, but though I'd post here in case someone else had similar issues.

    My PH hard stock reads "Promenade Club"

    The tickets are in Prom Box, and should have access regardless of how they were purchased (in a plan or at the window)

    Stub Hub advised the buyer to phone back if they had issues, but apparently they didn't need to. I advised them (SH) that I consider the matter closed as the error was in their reprinting / reissuing of tickets. Ironically I only sold two of the four yesterday, so they were seating right next to me and mom and I had no idea.


    Cheers!

    Dunkin' Donuts has a buy one, get one free coupon deal for games in April and May. I saw it this morning getting some coffee.

    Yup, you don't even need the coupon to take advantage of the offer. Just go to mets.com/donuts and enter donuts as the promo code. Two field box tickets for today's game came to $60 with fees. Since I don't buy tickets with club access very often, I went to the Acela club today for the first time and enjoyed the $29 market table offering.

    They had a nice antipasto selection, mini pastries, omelette/Belgian waffle station, some assorted sandwiches, pizza/calzone, meatballs, hot dogs and some other stuff I was too full to sample. Since I can spend $20 bucks on regular concessions pretty easily, I found the Acela buffet to be a fairly good deal.

    Wow, that was great. Your son will have those great memories you created for him the rest of his life.

    I went to the game and it was a very tough loss. It would have been shown on Met classics if they pulled it out. I sat in prom gold row 1 and I can't believe how good those seats are. It seems better then Mezz box to me. It feels like you are very close to home plate. They say it is 8 feet higher then mezz box and 15 feet closer to the field behind home plate. I walked around the stadium before the game and I think the view from 538 is pretty good. Much better the the upper deck at Shea. I think the stadium got a bad rap in 2009. The ribbon boards were bad, but they fixed that.

    I was at Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals. I noticed that a lot of the concession stands were not open and that Mr. Softee now selling ice cream at Citi Field:
