For the past few years, the New York Jets have sponsored Jets House, an off-season event that garners a lot of attention and fans. There's not much to do the weekend before SuperBowl here in the cold tri-state area and this a novel answer to that boredom for New York Jets fans.
The Jets House is being held at SPIN New York, a trendy club in the Flat Iron district, located at 48 E 23rd Street.
There are four sessions this weekend (January 28 and 29); Saturday Day session, Saturday Night session, Sunday Brunch and Sunday evening. Tickets are still available for the Sunday Evening session, which begins at 4 p.m.
A ticket will provide you with 3 hours of all-inclusive food and beverage service. You have the chance to meet and get memorabilia autographed by current and past Jets players. The Flight Crew cheerleaders are everywhere. There's always music, trivia, interviews and this year at SPIN, there are table games as well.
Saturday DAY session offered the fans the chance to meet and greet Muhammad Wilkerson, Marcus Williams, Anthony Becht, Wayne Chrebet, Wesley Walker and Freeman McNeil.
The Saturday Evening session, which was adults only from 7 to 11 p.m., will have meet and greet with Nick Folk, Marcus Williams, Anthony Becht, Tony Richardson and Chad Pennington.
The Sunday Brunch session, which will be from 10-2, offers more fun on day 2. I will be attending this exciting line-up with current and past Jets player. Meet and greet will be Robby Anderson, Marcus Williams, Quincy Enunwa, Muhammad Wilkerson, Mo Lewis, Chad Pennington and LaDainian Tomlinson. I have all my memorabilia ready.
Sunday Night session still has tickets available, and the schedule for this event includes a meet and greet plus an exciting ping-pong tournament. One lucky Jets fan has the chance to win two lower level season tickets for the 2017 regular season if they are victorious in the competition.
Meet and greet at the Sunday Evening session will be Dexter McDougle, Buster Skine, Muhammad Wilkerson, Mo Lewis, Chad Pennington, Bart Scott, Al Toon and Marty Lyons.
I've attended the events in the past two years, and I've come away with tons of photos, autographs and Jets giveaways from the Jets House sponsors.
It's not too late to get tickets for tomorrow night's session. Look online for Tickets for Sale for 2017 Jets House, and experience what it's like to be up close and personal with your favorite team, the New York Jets.
Look for my follow-up story this week, which will include some of my photographs from the Sunday Morning session. It's going to be a fun time once again for this Jet fan, for sure.
