Photos From The 2015 #MetLifeTakeover Pre-Party

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Okay we get it. The Dolphins aren’t good at football. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy the football season. We had a fantastic weekend here in NYC even if the last three hours of it were really terrible. Our weekend started off with a party at our bar Slattery’s Midtown Pub on Saturday. We invited our normal crew plus anyone who was in town for the game to a three hour meet and greet kinda thing and it was a ton of fun. We had people there from Indonesia, the UK, Canada and of course TON of people from Florida. It was a great turnout and we raised a lot of money.

We had DJ Tropic DJ and Solo D perform and of course we had a big raffle where we raised about $1000 for charity. On top of that we did a live auction to benefit the Dan Marino Foundation where we had a Marino signed ball go for $400 and a Cam Wake signed mini-helmet go for an insane $310. We decided to round up and we will be donating $1000 to the Dan Marino Foundation to help people with autism and other disabilities.

Lastly I just wanted to thank the Miami Dolphins, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Dolfans NYC member Rambo for donating items for the raffle and of course our volunteers for helping out! You guys rule.

Now check out some photos from the event! If you want to save an image you just have to double click it in the gallery and it will take you to the actual page on Flickr.

2015 #MetLifeTakeover Pre-Party

#MetLifeTakeover Pre-Party Announced!

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Just want to get this up quickly before the game and then I will come back and update with some more info. Just wanted everyone to know we are having a party next Saturday at Slattery’s Midtown Pub (8 East 36th St in Manhattan) from 4-7pm the night before the #MetLifeTakeover! We will have some really serious raffle prizes, tons of Dolfans NYC merch for sale and a live performance from Solo D. DJ Tropic will be DJing all evening as well and we should have some cool surprises in store.

It’s a great chance to meet fellow Dolfans before the game. Last year’s pre-party was a blast and Jay Fiedler showed up and signed some autographs. Don’t miss it!

Lastly, we are doing a toy drive so bring an unwrapped toy and we will give you two free drink tickets for the #MetLifeTakeover tailgate thanks to Pabst Blue Ribbon!

See you Saturday!

Last Chance To Get Tickets To The #MetLifeTakeover

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

This is it! We are coming down to the wire. We have over 700 tickets sold already and another 100 that have told us they are going to pay soon so get your money in now!

On the 23rd we are going to stop ticket sales for the #MetLifeTakeover. After that date Michelle is going to be dealing with family stuff for Thanksgiving and then traveling up to NYC and won’t have time to deal with distributing tickets, so if you want to join us you only have a few more days to get your money in.

It’s also time to get your money in for the tailgate. Same deadline as the tickets. $25 includes a hot dog, a burger, pasta salad, chips, two beers care of Pabst Blue Ribbon and bottled water care of AquaHydrate. Plus Sailor Jerry is providing rum for hot cider. We did it last year and that went over pretty well given how cold and rainy it was. Hopefully the weather will be better this year. Email dolfansnyc@gmail.com to get your tailgate ticket.

There is also still an option to take a bus to the game from our bar Slattery’s Midtown Pub but we need to get final numbers in by noon on the 23rd so that is the absolute deadline to get your money in for that.

Here is the sign up link for the tickets and bus: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4faea72dabf94-dolphins1 

But if you already have your ticket and you just need a tailgate ticket email dolfansnyc@gmail.com immediately!

 

Lastly, remember we are going to have a party the night before the game at Slattery’s so put that on your calendar, especially if you are coming from out of town. No details yet, but we should have them soon!

Hey guys! It’s not too late to sign up for the #MetLifeTakeover! I just wanted to post the info again so that people would see it right when they went to our site. We have over 600 people who have paid for tickets already! Should be an amazing time when the Dolphins come up to play the Jets!

We are also going to be doing a big tailgate and tickets for that will go on sale very soon. It will be $25 for food, water and a booze thanks to PBR, Sailor Jerry and Aqua Hydrate water. But more on that soon.

We are also going to be having a party the night before at our bar Slattery’s Midtown Pub, but more on that later as well. We are behind on everything because of Michelle’s move but don’t worry, we are on top of everything. See you guys soon.

Sign up here and get your money in as soon as Michelle emails you. Thanks & Phins up!

Early Morning Party At Slattery’s!

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

So the Dolphins play at 9:30am on Sunday and we are gonna have a party. Slattery’s Midtown Pub will be open at 8am and will have some breakfast food options, a lot of coffee and of course some appropriate drinks. Fortunately for us before Slattery’s was our bar it was a soccer bar and they are used to opening at weird times for games. Despite the unfortunate few weeks the team has had this is Jets week and I wanna see everyone out at the bar.

On top of just a big game and the weird timing, this is going to be Michelle’s last game as a New Yorker. As per her last post, she is moving to Miami and taking her husband and Dolfans NYC blogger Alex with her. Everything we do would be impossible without Michelle and we are all fortunate that she is still going to be working on the #MetLifeTakeover and helping out as much as possible from Miami, plus I know she’s gonna be coming up a few times a year to party with us.

So come out early and let’s get some anger out on these Jets and give Michelle a hug because you won’t see her in NYC again until the #MetLifeTakover. Let’s pack the bar and have some fun at a totally unreasonable hour.

Phins up!

Getting Ready For The Season!

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Okay Dolfans, you might have noticed that we didn’t update this site much during the off season but that doesn’t mean we aren’t working on a bunch of stuff in the mean time. There are enough Dolphins blogs out there that you don’t need our take on what’s going on, but as we get closer to week one I think it’s time for an update. We have a bunch of stuff going on this season so let’s go week by week.

2015 Dolphins Schedule

  • September 3rd – Preseason Game 4 against Tampa Bay:
    • Our bar Slattery’s Midtown Pub IS showing the game. It’s the only nationally televised game and Dolfans NYC will be in the building, BUT there are events booked upstairs so it’s going to be more of a low key thing. Will be a fun time hanging out but not a real Dolfans NYC event. Game 4 of the preseason is always awful anyway.
  • September 13th – Week 1 against Washington:
    • Dolfans NYC is supporting our Dolfan brothers to the south NOVA Dolfans who are throwing the “DC Shutdown” a similar event to our #MetLifeTakeover. They are doing a party the night before as well with our buddy Solo D performing. You can get tickets and find out more info here.
    • Because of our support for the DC Shutdown event we are not going to be throwing a huge party at Slattery’s like we normally do on week one. That’s not to say Slattery’s won’t be packed but we won’t be doing any raffles or anything like that. And don’t worry DJ Tropic will still be DJing.
  • September 20th – Week 2 against Jacksonville:
    • THIS is the big Slattery’s kick off party! We are going to be doing a bunch of raffles all game and will have brand new Dolfans NYC merch for sale and maybe a few surprises. You should be at Slattery’s every week, but Week 2 is going to be a big one!
  • October 4th – Week 4 against the Jets in London:
    • This game starts at 9:30am! Slattery’s will be open at 8am and we will be doing breakfast. We will have bagels and coffee and I am sure some drink specials like Bloody Mary’s. Should be a really fun event.
  • October 25th – Week 7 against Houston:
    • This is the second annual Fan Club Weekend in Miami. A huge crew of Dolfans NYC members are traveling to Miami for the game to meet up with fan clubs across the country (and world)! You can still get tickets to sit with us if you guys want to go. Just email dolfansnyc@gmail.com with the subject “Fan Club Weekend” for details!
  • November 29th – 2015 #MetLifeTakeover
    • This is the big one! Our infamous #MetLifeTakeover! Last year we had 1200 Dolfans sitting together and I would love to see us beat that this year. We are doing a big catered tailgate with entertainment and food and it should be an amazing time. We are really blowing it up this year! Plus there will be a party at Slattery’s the night before. So get ready for a hell of a weekend!
    • SIGN UP FOR THE TAKEOVER HERE!!

Sign Up For The 2015 #MetLifeTakeover

Monday, May 11th, 2015

I admit I have done a terrible job updating this website. We had a draft party at Slattery’s and I promoted it via Facebook and Twitter but I totally forgot to do an update on the website. The party was a great success and it seems like our draft could be something pretty special as well. Just getting Mike Hull as an UDFA seems like a huge steal not to mention Jay Ajayi in the fifth round and having Parker on the board in the first without having to trade up to get him. All good things.

It might be years before we figure out how this draft really looks, but we don’t have to wait long to get tickets for the next #MetLifeTakeover!

The game is November 29th which happens to be Thanksgiving weekend for the third year in a row. That’s obviously a pain for some people traveling for the holiday but at least it’s a day game this year!

We have created a sign up page to RSVP for tickets. We are essentially using this sign up as a way to explain the process and create a mailing list so as soon as we have tickets in our hands we can start selling them to you guys.

This year we are going to be giving out the best seats first so the sooner you get your money in the better your seats. Usually Michelle agonizes on the seating charts but this year it’s just first come first serve so sign up and then as soon as you get an email from us get us money!

This year the seats are slightly more expensive because the game is a Sunday. Apparently Monday Night Football is a little less attractive since people have jobs and stuff. So tickets are $65. Sunday game also means we are going to do a proper tailgate but that info will come later. You’ll be able to spend like $10-20 and not have to worry about anything. We just need to figure out the logistics and that probably won’t happen until the season actually starts.

There is also an option to get a seat on our charter bus that will leave from Slattery’s before the game and come back after. That’s always a fun experience if you have done it with us in the past. Nothing like sitting on a bus packed with Phins fans after a win. The seat on the bus is $25 which is only about $10 than the buses from Penn Station and you don’t have to wait in a line with Jets fans.

So anyway, sign up now and as soon as we buy the tickets we will send you an email. Phins up!

Dolfans NYC Yard Sale & More

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

The season is coming to an end and Dolfans NYC has a bunch of merch and raffle prizes still left over. We decided we want to get rid of a bunch of stuff so that we don’t have store it during the off season. We figured a perfect solution would be the first annual Dolfans NYC yard sale!

This is a perfect chance to get some last minute Christmas gifts for friends, family or yourself. We have a ton of old logo Dolphins stuff, random small items and some rare stuff like a Dolphins drink set that was given to VIPs by the Dolphins for Christmas a few years ago. We also will be selling our standard Dolfans NYC gear but you will save $5 per $40’s you spend. So come to Slattery’s for the Vikings game and bring cash!

We will be making donations to Toys 4 Tots, Ride DCC and several other charities this holiday season so help us make one final fundraising push!

Speaking of fundraising, we donated $1000 to the Go Fund Me for Jamie Quadrozzi the Dolphins manager of promotions and brand impact. She helped throw the Dolphins fan club weekend and has been a long supporter of Dolfans NYC. She was injured badly in a car accident and if you can find it in you to donate some money this holiday season you should! Get better Jamie!

Lastly, our #MetLifeTakeover wrap up video is behind schedule but should be here soon! Be on the look out and in the mean time check out Solo D’s new video which features footage from our takeover pre-party. Anyway, I will see you guys Sunday at Slattery’s. Phins up!

The New Dolfans NYC Anthem!

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

My life has been completely taken over by the #MetLifeTakeover and the pre party we are doing Sunday November 30th. My living room is filled with a half dozen boxes filled with everything from inflatable palm trees to t-shirts to some of the best raffle prizes we have ever had. It’s insane. I will get to all that stuff in a minute but before I do, I wanted to let you guys that the one and only Solo D has re-recorded the Dolfans NYC theme song!

Solo D wrote a song for us years ago and ever since DJ Tropic started DJing our Sunday watch parties at Slattery’s people have been asking about that track. Tropic spins it at least once a week and people keep bugging him about where they can get a copy. The problem was that the song was way out of date. It mentioned our old bar Third & Long and our hatred for Rex Ryan who will very likely be out of a job in a couple months. We asked him to rerecord it and he was happy to do it since back then he was just recording shit at his place and he wanted to update it with some real studio sound!

So here it is the 2014 version of the Dolfans NYC Anthem! Get it, memorize it and sing it with us every Sunday!

[mp3j track=”http://www.dolfansnyc.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/01-Dolfans-NYC-Anthem.mp3″ volslider=”y” style=”outline”] Download the MP3

Now for some other stuff! Speaking of Solo D, he will be playing at our November 30th pre-party! The party starts at noon at Slattery’s Midtown Pub and will go to about four. At 1pm we have a surprise Dolphins alumni visiting and at 2pm Solo D will be performing. DJ Tropic will be DJing and we are raffling off TWO full sized autographed Dolphins helmets! One is signed by Ryan Tannehill and the other by Mike Wallace. We also have a game used signed Brian Hartline cleat and a TON of other prizes. On top of that the first 150 people in the door get a free t-shirt. It’s going to be insane.

Lastly, I just wanted to hook you guys up with a story written by Dolfans NYC member Pascal Mencini. He went to London for the Raiders game and ended up hanging out with a bunch of the Dolphins rookies. It’s a pretty cool story and worth checking out.

Phins up!

#MetLifeTakeover Party & Tailgate!

Monday, November 17th, 2014

It finally happened. Today we sold our 1,000th ticket to the Dolphins game in NJ on Monday Night Football. It’s a huge milestone for us because we thought we would have a hard time selling tickets since it was on a work night and Thanksgiving weekend but we have sold over 250 more than our record breaking 752 tickets last year!

We now own the two highest group ticket purchases in MetLife Stadium history. We have taken the #MetLifeTakeover to another level and thank you guys so much for joining us!

If you still need tickets we are completely sold out, but it’s time to announce the sections so any last minute ticket holders can pick them up on StubHub.

We have nearly the entire sections of 345 and 346 so good luck getting tickets in those sections… but we also have 8 full rows in 344 and several rows in 347 as well. I recommend buying tickets in rows 17-20 in 347 and the top rows (24-26) in 344. Also there are a few seats in the “prime” section of 346 so you can get some pretty great seats cheap with a ton of Dolphins fans sitting right behind you. Let’s keep going!

Now the fun stuff! Tailgate info and the big pre party!

Because it’s on Monday night our busses aren’t leaving our bar, Slattery’s Midtown Pub, until 5:45pm so that means the 216 people who signed up for the buses won’t be getting to MetLife until around 7pm. Because of this we are NOT doing an official tailgate. BUT we are going to be organizing a BYO tailgate in Lot L (you need a YELLOW parking pass). A few of us will be getting there right when the gates open and we will post our location to Twitter and Facebook. If everyone meets us there we can still party while we wait for all the busses to show up. Bring your own beer and food and if you have a grill or tents or whatever BRING EVERYTHING! We can still do a pretty fun tailgate even if it’s not catered or anything like last year. Plus we will have a few surprises in store…

Speaking of surprises, we are throwing a big party at Slattery’s on Sunday the 30th! 

On Sunday at noon we are having a big party since we aren’t doing a proper tailgate. The big news is that members of the Miami Dolphins organization will be there! They haven’t told us who yet, but they are bringing a Dolphins alumni member and a ton of SERIOUS raffle prizes. This will be BY FAR our biggest raffle ever. Plus the first 150 people through the door will receive aqua Miami Dolphins t-shirts! We will be showing the 2013 #MetLifeTakeover game as well as some of the 1pm games plus we will have a performance from the one and only Solo D! There will be the same food/drink specials we have every game day at Slattery’s and there will be even more surprises.

We will also be selling our new merch designed specifically for the #MetLifeTakeover we have new warm weather Dolfans NYC beanies and Dolfans NYC clear bags. If you haven’t been to a game recently the NFL now requires everyone to have clear bags if you want to bring anything into the stadium. So now you can rep our crew in style. If you can’t make the party they are now available in our web store too!

Lastly we will be giving out rally towels for people going to the game with us. You must have purchased tickets from us to get one. We only have 600 so this is the only way you are guaranteed to get one. We will also be giving out wristbands for the bus and even a few inflatable palm trees! It’s going to be a party!

So, let’s get excited for the best #MetLifeTakeover ever!
