Spring has officially sprung, and the weather supports the calendar. The plants are starting to bloom, the wardrobes are changing and the general mood around town seems to be happier and more optimistic as we continue to make our way out of the pandemic. It’s a great time to be in New York City!
Along with all of the good spirits and warmer weather, it’s a great time of the year for sports! March Madness is in full effect and while your bracket is likely busted, you can still enjoy the tournament and count down the days until Opening Day for your Mets and Yankees! 2021 will bring a full year of baseball and we cannot wait. We live in a baseball town and for the first time since 2019, we’ll be able to get back to the park. In fact, just over 8,000 of us can get in the stadium to enjoy some live baseball, delicious food, and a cold brew. Sounds like heaven.
As you can probably tell, our mind is on Spring and our focus is on baseball. However, the new rules do not only apply to Citi Field and Yankee Stadium. It’s good news for many venues and those looking to enjoy some live entertainment – sports and beyond. We know that we sure as heck missed it! Starting on April 1st, all professional sports in large outdoor stadiums that hold 10,000 people or more will be allowed to reopen at 20% capacity and smaller, regional sports or arts venues that hold 1,500 people indoors or 2,500 people outdoors can also reopen, though initial capacity will be limited to 10 percent indoors and 20 percent outdoors.
As we said, it’s starting to look and feel like the New York we know and that is always a great thing. We can’t wait to see you at the ballpark!
