the sky is big in pasadena, Ben Wideman's daily photoblog of the Crown City. I don't believe there was a day in three years that I was in town and failed to check it. But I never actually met Ben. Then he graduated from Fuller last year, got a job in Pennsylvania, and moved away.
Last month Ben sent me an email that he would be in New York City last night: it was his 30th birthday and he wanted to go see his beloved Blue Jays take on the Yankees. He asked if I wanted to go and I said sure. I had been to the old Yankee Stadium years ago, but had yet to visit the new one.
Before we get to the food, here are some photos I took from the game:
"Our four tickets cost forty bucks combined," he said. "And I just paid $35 for parking."
Now on to some pictures of the food options:
Now here's what I actually ate:
And the fries were cold.
The one positive here was the vinegar sauce, and it was delicious. But the plastic container was only filled about one-third of the way. So I took that small amount, as well as the three small pickle slices that were buried under the fries, and put it all on one of the sliders. It made it... well, it barely did anything, the pork was that bad. But I guess it made it slightly better.
It was fun seeing the new Yankee Stadium, though I liked the old one better. The new one certainly has a lot more food options, but I'm not sure if that's really a good thing. (Ben had regular sliders and he said they were pretty bad, too.) I don't know if I'll ever return but if I do I will be getting a couple of slices of pizza somewhere instead of eating at the stadium.
