Woo Hoo! Citi Field now has gluten free food stands. Among other options, we enjoyed gluten free sausage with peppers at the baseball game.
Go ahead, it’s gluten free!
One warm evening this past summer, my husband surprised our family with last minute tickets to a Mets baseball game. Don’t you just love surprises?
We all scrambled to get ready so that we could get there early and tour Citi Field (we hadn’t been to a Met game since they played at Shea stadium).
Gluten free goodies
Usually, I have to take time to plan for gluten free meals when we go out for the night. But the Mets have this under control. There is a separate gluten free food stand on the field level.
You can get burgers or hot dogs on gluten free buns or indulge in a gluten free Italian sausage with peppers sandwich at Citi Field.
Certainly, this is better than years ago when we had to settle for ordering from the main concession stand and forfeit the bun. These were Udi’s buns, just like the ones we eat at home. Yum.
Then for desert, treat yourself to Kozy Shack pudding, carvel ice cream, peanuts or chips. Gluten free beer is also available.
Gluten free concession stands are popping up at many stadiums across the country so be sure to inquire the next time you go to your favorite ballpark. I wrote about Yankee Stadium here.
Upon arrival at Citi Field, we were greeted with a floppy hat giveaway.
Then we entered an impressive rotunda highlighting the career of Jackie Robinson. Nine inspiring ideals of his are engraved on the floor: Excellence, Citizenship, Commitment, Determination, Persistence, Courage, Integrity, Teamwork and Justice.
Several flat screen televisions played highlights from his baseball career. Once upstairs, the feeling was a lot like an amusement park.
We were so excited when Travis d’Arnaud hit a home run. The famous big apple behind the centerfield fence that rises each time a Mets player hits a home run added to the thrill. Everybody clap your hands!
During the seventh inning stretch, Mr. Met entertained us while Citi Field workers used air guns to launch T-shirts to the fans.
Even though the Mets fell to the Rangers, it was a fun gluten free night.
