When in New York ... go to a game. But if base­ball is your thing, don’t line up with the crowds or set­tle for a seat in the bleach­ers. The spa­cious Audi Yan­kees Club, on the Suite Level at Yan­kee Sta­dium in the Bronx, of­fers great value for New York Yan­kees games at an av­er­age of $US135 ($175.50) a per­son on week­days and $US20-$40 ex­tra on week­ends. There’s a sub­stan­tial and fre­quently re­plen­ished buf­fet, with gen­er­ous serves of seafood and sep­a­rate dessert spread, soft drinks in­cluded and al­co­hol for sale. High-def­i­ni­tion tele­vi­sion mon­i­tors screen the game and there are un­in­ter­rupted views of the field through pic­ture win­dows. As­signed seat­ing is at ta­bles or in­di­vid­ual win­dow-side perches; there’s also a bar and waiter ser­vice. The web­site in­for­ma­tion on pre­mium hos­pi­tal­ity is con­fus­ing, sug­gest­ing you need a min­i­mum group of 10, but click through to ticket sales and fol­low prompts for in­di­vid­ual tick­ets. Ar­rive well be­fore the game for un­in­ter­rupted din­ing and tip your “server” up­front for best at­ten­tion. It’s not quite the same as be­ing amid the roar of the fans, but is a heck of a lot more com­fort­able. More: newyork.yan­kees.mlb.com.
