Attention: Flushing-area alcoholics — stop by your local Modell’s Sporting Goods on the way out and pick up a gross of discounted Mets merch, because Foley’s NY Pub and Restaurant is offering free drinks in exchange for Jose Reyes jerseys. It’s sorta like what happened in Cleveland, but with a better attitude and fewer bonfires.
The ad campaign, by way of The Hall Of Very Good:
“New York baseball is feeling a swirl of emotions as Jose Reyes heads south this winter. We’re giving Mets fans a chance to drown their sorrows, or celebrate, and bid adios to Jose, one of the best and most popular Mets players ever,” said Shaun Clancy, owner of Foley’s. “By doing this, we can have a little fun and donate to clothing drives for people who are less fortunate.”
So it’s sorta like sending all those TEXAS RANGERS WORLD CHAMPIONS 2011 t-shirts to Africa, but the Africa you’re clothing is down the street.
Take the drinks, New York, you’re going to need them.
