Baseball and beer? From a plastic cup yet? Fuhgeddaboudit! This year, Citi Field’s creature comforts will include a members-only speakeasy that features wine and cocktails.
But you’d better act fast if you want to become a member of the Cadillac Club at Payson’s, as the new venture is called. As Front Office Sports notes, the club’s front-row seats have already sold out despite the $24,999 price tag. As of press time, seats in the third and fourth rows were still available at $19,000 each.
If you prefer to root, root, root for the Yankees, you’re doubtless aware that Yankee Stadium already features a high-end steakhouse, fittingly called NNY Steak, where you can sip and nibble your way through the game.
But this season, the stadium has a few new edible attractions, including the 99 Burger, named after Yankee slugger Aaron Judge. The sandwich is comprised of two 4-ounce American Wagyu beef patties procured from from Lobel’s of New York, two slices of New School American Cheese, caramelized onions, secret sauce, and pickles on a brioche bun. The cost of the burger? $19.99. Again a caveat: A maximum of 99 of the burgers will be sold per game.
