This coming Monday I will be attending my 15th straight Mets opening day with my good friend Col. Klink. We'll be following our usual plan - i.e. park on Union or Bowne at the edge of downtown Flushing and then take the 7 train one stop. This avoids the jammed Shea parking lot and makes transportation quick and painless.
The game should finish up at about 4:30PM and our ultimate destination is Spicy and Tasty on Roosevelt Avenue for some first rate szechuan.
We'd like to have a few celebratory beers before starting our dinner. A bar with a decent beer selection and pleasant atmosphere would be ideal. We'll have a car so suggestions don't have to be in the absolute immediate area, although I'd put a 10 minute limit on drive time.
Is there any place that would fit the bill?
