Let's go Mets!!! What a wonderful day!!
Sunday, August 16, 2009
I realized as I shared my 3 things to be thankful for that this belongs here too (that by the way is a wonderful thread/exercise I encourage everyone to engage in).
We had 9th row seats to watch the Mets at beautiful new Citi Field. Michael had won them at a thank you luncheon for volunteering from his company. They gave us access to the Acela Club, so since we will never spend that much on tickets (barring any unforseen good fortune) and never have that opportunity again, we went. The stadium is fantastic and so was the view, the ambiance, the food at the Acela Club. My favorites included the wonderful wonderful clams and the marvelous aged nutty tasting gouda (better than parmigian reggianno!), and the mozzarella tomato salad, and the crab cakes, and the white fish, for me any way!
On the way home we split up as the train back from Manhattan was extrememly crowded. I chatted with a nice lady from Indiana. As I suggested favorite outings to her, all sorts of happy memories came to mind. What a lovely way to put the icing on a an already wonderful adventure!
Thank you G-d for a magnificent day!!
