Audi club

Our friends told us that on occasion they upgrade their tickets and splurge on seats in the Audi Club at Yankee Stadium. We join them there last night.

We sat in the 2nd row and had an amazing bird’s eye view from above left field.

The way these tickets work is that you get a seat and the buffet is available until 2 hours after the start of the game. The dessert table & various ballpark munchies are available the whole game.
I sampled beef tenderloin, breast of duck and several pieces of sushi. Veggies wound on my plate too. I also had a huge salad and while it was good (fresh blue cheese dressing?) I probably should skip it at an all you can eat buffet 🙂

The dessert bar was excellent. Individually packed mini cheescake, mini cannolis, delicious chocolate covered strawberries and the best pistachio ice cream I’ve ever had- all the nutty taste without nuts.

I was glad to see that stadium traditions were observed: standing for the national anthem, and the 7th inning stretch, cheering when Kuroda had a 2 strike count and the excitement of seeing Mariano come in for the save. What I didn’t like was hearing the television broadcast (with commercials) and not hearing the sounds of the stadium. What is Mo running in without hearing Metallica’s “Enter Sandmen”? I hope the stadium clubs can figure out a way to pipe the music in (hint, hint).

Overall I enjoyed my game in luxury surroundings. However I can not imagine spending all my games here but it is definitely a treat. I would come here before going back to NYY Steak.
