Citibank's "Our Promise to New York," is an effort by the bank to reinforce its commitment to the local communities in the area. "Our Promise to New York" is about re-connecting with our customers and supporting our local communities in every way that we can, " said Richard Schnetzer, Outer Boroughs Division Manager, Citibank.
We could not have had a better weather day to visit Citi Field. I must admit I have been dying to see the stadium since it opened. I had seen photos Citi Field and it just looked beautiful. As we walked through the stadium, it seemed eerie to be there without fans but it definitely met my expectations. The tour included a trip to the visiting team's locker room which was huge and included sofas and computers. Of course, no trip to a locker room is complete without a trip to the bathroom and showers, communal by the way and I have no comment on that set up.
As part of the tour, we went up to the Delta Sky box, nice is all I have to say and the view of the field is incredible. (Hey Delta, I have still have points and am a loyal customer.) And the piece de resistance was to be able to walk on the field where the Mets play. What an experience that was, to be that close to the field and stand where the players play and be able to see the stands from their vantage point. Seriously, what a thrill.
If that wasn't enough, we met Mr. Met. Woo, hoo!! I mean who doesn't want to meet a mascot with a big baseball on their head. Hey no matter the snark, Mr. Met has his own office.
Just a fun day on one of best weather days of the year. I look forward to getting out to Citi Field and actually seeing a game this year.
Finally, I want to give a shout out to the other mom bloggers at the event. I love seeing old friends and meeting new ones, makes the event truly a great time.
