    Just so all of us here can have an idea of how many BigSoccer members will be going or not. Hope most, if not all of you, will be there. Also, be sure you bring someone else with you to the match. This would be a perfect time to bring someone who has never been to a Metros' or any other Soccer game! Thanx!

    I will be there, with a minimum of three in tow. And one is an EPL Purist who refuses to believe that a Metros V. Man City match would be worth the price of admission. So, Go Metros. Play the match you're capable of PLEASE.

    I'll be there. Of course, this has to be held on the same night as Mexico-Uruguay, but I'll tape that off Telemundo and watch it when I get home.

    I've grown an intense hatred for Chicago, emanating from Zach Thornton's attempted murder of Amado Guevara back in June. I hope the Metros mop the floor with the bastards.

    Now, let's turn the thread over to all the college kids, who are under the impression that something they may remember with joy for a lifetime should be superceded by some classroom BS they'll forget next month.

    I'd just like to let you know that we reciprocate your love for us.

    Now to a very important question... Where is a good place to eat and booze near the stadium?

    Thanks in Advance...

    Well, if you consider Manhattan to be near the stadium, go to Nathan Hale's, eat, drink and meet Tommy Smyth. For more info, see one of the threads on pre-match activities in this forum.

    Or, you could tailgate at Giants Stadium.

    I think there are some bars/restaurants near the stadium in Jersey, but someone else will have to give you the lowdown on those.

    NH should really be a METRO bar. F everyone else, there are plenty of other places this jerkoff can drink.

    Thanks Paul. We're coming from Newark Airport and won't have that much time to go to Manhattan.

    Just looking for something decent around the Meadowlands.

    How many of you are taking someone else with you?
    If you are taking others, Are they new to Metros' games or are they just regulars you take along all the time, such as family members, friends, etc....



    Que Viven los METROS!!!

    One newbie -- and my wife. She's not new.

    (sigh)

    But then, neither am I.


    To the guys coming to the match via Newark -- there is no place within walking distance of The Swamp to get food and drink. You'd have to buy stadium food -- which is okay if you are really hungry, but it's pricey -- or eat at the airport before the match.

    When we do this again two years from now, there will be pubs and restaurants in Harrison to choose among. But for now, without a lot of time on your hands, the options are few.

    Dumb question -- the PA buses will be running like a regular Metro game right?

    If you have a rental car there are plenty of places along Rt. 17 just north of the sports complex. If you really know your way around the area try Rut's Hut, the best bad food in the Northeast. It's just off of Rts. 3 & 21 in Clifton.

    If you have a rental car try this place, it's not too far from Giants Stadium.

    The Sheraton across the street..over route 3 has a sports bar, not the greatest food, but plenty of beer and it's about 500 yards away from the stadium..

    Hey man, same here. (cough) 1908. ;).

    As mentioned, the stadium is in the middle of nowhere really, and there isn't too much close by. Your best bet is to take the turnpike north to exit 16, take route 3 west (you'll pass the stadium), take 17 north about three miles and you'll hit a strip mall area with a Houlihan's, a Friday's and a couple of other theme restaurant type places (plus every white castle, mcdonalds, taco bell and subway you could want). It's a 5 minute drive from the stadium. That's your best bet for safe dining near the stadium. You can then take 17 back south to Patterson Plank Road (Rte 120 east) and you're right at the stadium. You don't really want to eat at the stadium, and you'd have to drive into an actual town (which Rutherford, east, west or otherwise is not) to find a real restaurant or bar.

    Red's is pretty good and probably the closest to the stadium
