What is everyone's plan for the Stadium Series next Sunday?  How you getting there?  What you doing before the game?

 

Honestly, I think driving is the most convenient/cheapest way to go for a group of 4, but seeing if someone had a better idea.

Probably going to end up taking the train/subway. In the end it'll probably end up being more expensive than driving, but less hectic/time consuming.

Driving if weather is good. Train if weather is not cooperating.

NJ transit trains take forever and hate operating on their schedule.

Driving to secaucus junction and then taking the train. Driving to yankee stadium is not worth the headache.

Why anyone would drive is beyond me. Anyone tailgating or hanging out anyplace before?

Never been to Yankee Stadium. Does someone want to pick a bar for NJDevs to meet at? And any bars to definitely avoid?

NJT into Penn, then walking over to the D train. Can't imagine voluntarily driving into what is assuredly going to be traffic hell. Sent via mobile

Forget about the bars across the street from the stadium...  they can't serve alcohol until 12:00 pm on Sundays...  also, Yankee Stadium will not serve alcohol until 12:00 pm on Sundays...  so plan accordingly.

 

And if you're drinking in the parking lot at Yankee Stadium, the police make their rounds AND will say something to you.  No tailgating allowed, so make sure you hide it well if you're drinking, as they will sneak up on you.  Same goes for subway, you cannot drink on them like you can drink on the NJ Transit trains.  I found that out the hard way with an open alcohol summons.

 

Parking next to the stadium is $35 -- but there's $20 lots/garages a couple blocks away (maybe even cheaper).  I think if you're going with a group (3 or more), driving makes sense, especially if you are 30+ minutes from a Path station (or Secaucus Junction).  If there's 2 of you, Path to Subway is probably the way to go.

You will encounter less traffic driving to Yankee Stadium on a Sunday morning than any other day.  I'll give you a tip, though.  Avoid the Major Deegan like you avoid Route 21 for Devils games...  but again, you really shouldn't encounter much traffic on a Sunday morning.  And its best to park in a lot that has easy access back to NJ -- and not far from the exit of a parking garage that has one exit.

 

My advice for the Wednesday night Rangers vs Islanders game would be a lot different.

I don't want to drive mainly because we all plan on drinking.

I don't think it's getting TO the stadium that'll be the issue driving. Getting out of it's another matter though...

Where do you pick up the D train? Where do you get off for the stadium?

Fights between Devils and Rangers fans will be a dime a dozen, with all this joint commuting. Plan accordingly, fellas
