I got a note from Greg at Faith & Fear in Flushing. He's teaming up with Mets by the Numbers and a few other InterMet thought leaders for a series of soirees. Details below.

Unfortunately, I can't make this Tuesday but I will make the next outing. If you go, file a party report!

Absurdly high parking rates and people yammering behind you notwithstanding, hope the season in the new home of the Mets is treating you well. In spite of the team we love doing what it's doing to us, we're having a Mets shindig of sorts this week: the first of three Amazin' Tuesdays, July 21, 7:00 PM, at Two Boots Tavern on the Lower East Side. It's co-hosted by yours truly of Faith and Fear in Flushing and Jon Springer of Mets By The Numbers, and includes appearances by ESPN Uni Watch's Paul Lukas and Mets historian Matt Silverman (co-author of Keith Hernandez's current book).

We'll be reading from various works, watching the game, eating and drinking, and being Mets fans. The owner of Two Boots, Phil Hartman, is a huge Mets fan and his restaurant is practically a Met shrine. Details right here.

  Admission is free for all, as is the first drink if you bring a Mets baseball card (no kidding).

FYI, we'll be doing two more of these unless the Mets disintegrate before we have the chance, August 25 and September 15.
