AMAZIN’ TUESDAY is pulling into a new location! It’s headed to one of New York’s most revered landmarks and one of my favorite places anywhere
On May 18 at 7:00 PM, we will reconvene the rookie sensation of 2009 (and Spring Training 2010) at Two Boots Grand Central, located in the lower dining concourse of the world’s most famous train station, Grand Central Terminal. The move was necessitated by the closing of Two Boots’ Lower East Side location (a moment of silence…), but owner Phil Hartman wanted, like we do, to keep our Mets reading ‘n’ rallying program on track.
What better place to do it than Grand Central, renowned icon of Beaux Arts architecture and the third stop on the 7 to Mets-Willets Point? Phil has his restaurant there, and the spirit as well as the reality of AMAZIN’ TUESDAY will live on adjacent to the 7:48 to Darien. Two Boots Grand Central includes a wall of Mets memorabilia, the Mets on the big screen taking on the Braves at Turner Field, Mets-themed culinary offerings and the popular exchange of one beer for one Mets baseball card per customer.
To do the location its just and inaugural due, Jon Springer of Mets By The Numbers and I are proud to bring you two very special guests: Taryn Cooper (a.k.a. Coop) of Metsopotamian favorite My Summer Family and Josh Wilker of Cardboard Gods, the beloved blog that is now a highly praised book. They, along with Jon, me and hopefully you will engage in some delectable baseball talk to go with Two Boots’ excellent pizza and such.
Feel free to admire Grand Central on the way in — and ignore those Yankees fans headed to Westchester.
Two Boots Grand Central is in the Lower Dining Concourse of Grand Central Terminal, 42nd Street and Park Avenue, accessible via Metro-North as well as the 4, 5, 6, Times Square Shuttle and, of course, the 7 trains. Phone: 212/557-7992.
