Metro v DC Cup Semi/Court Tavern Info

    The Empire Supporters Club will gather at the Court Tavern in New Brunswick from 4:30pm on next Wednesday before our crucial Open Cup semifinal against D.C. Great beer, great jukebox and plenty of carry out eateries in the hood to get you warmed up for the match. Get there early if you need to keep MetroTard off of the Slade jag. Ride shares post needs or offers.

    Once inside Yurcak Field, the ESC will congregate all the way to the left side of the main stand, on the side behind the Metro team shelter.

    To get to the Court Tavern from the Turnpike, take exit 9 (NEW BRUNSWICK) and bear right on ramp
    Merge onto Rt 18 N
    Take Rt 27 S and get into left lane quickly
    Take left onto Neilson St
    Take right onto Church St
    Go through 1st light across George St, Court is at the end of next block on Church.
    It would be wise to try parking along street as soon as one turns onto Church. There are a couple of lots near the Court, as well.

    From the train station, go down platform stairs and turn left down Easton Ave and cross Albany St towards McDonalds and the Rutgers bookstore. Turn right onto Spring St and walk one block to Church. Court is on the corner.

    6:45 departure from the Court for the match (15 minutes away) is a good idea as most will want to get through the traffic and over to the match in advance of the kickoff. As is customary, first round's on Jamison...

    Come On, Metro!

    NYR, please don't fall for that one.

    I will be there around 3-ish, as I just got the day off. I'll try to bring a disposable camera on the DC trip and get the pictures processed by Wednesday.

    shouldn't be a problem. even if it were to sell out, one could get a pretty damn good view by just hanging out outside of the fence around the field.

    I'm taking the 3pm train from Penn Station to New Brunfus, so I should be in the hood around 4pm.

    Looking forward to some Husker Du on the jukebox.

    The court has arguably the best jukebox in NJ.

    True True True. They also have reasonably priced pitchers.

    Does The Court know we're showing?

    How far is the drive from The Court to the field?

    The court is about a 10 minute drive with traffic to the field. Beer is very reasonable priced at the court. Its 2.50 bud bottles and I think pitchers range from like 6 to 10 bucks depending on the beer. Yuengling is a good bargain at the Court.

    For those in the know... is it easier to get to the Court when comming from 287 if you get on the Turnpike or is there a better exit off of 287 ?

    Oh, I'm definitely in. One thing, though...first time out to Rutgers, how long do you suppose the wait time will be at the will call window?

    Are people expecting a sellout? I've never had to buy a ticket ahead of time for a Metros game before...

    For 287 directly to the field - Exit 9 (River Road / Rt. 622*) toward Rutgers / Highland Park, go through lights for Centennial Ave., Plainfield Ave., (go a little bit) Hoes Lane West / Johnson Drive, make the first major left, Sutphen Road (you'll see Rutgers sign on right). Make left on to the first major road, you'll pass stadium on way to parking.

    To get to the Court Tavern - best way is not to take 287 in the first place. Turnpike is much better if it's not completely out of the way.

    * Note, if you look at a map, River Road may be called Route 18 or 514, which used to be true but is now 622.
