Episode 23: Shaun Clancy, Owner Of Foley’s NY!

Any podcast that is taped in your favorite bar, interviewing the guy who owns the bar, while you’re drinking a pint from Bronx Brewery… is a good podcast!

Our string of fantastic guests continues this week with Shaun Clancy. He’s originally from Ireland, and opened Foley’s (18 West 33rd Street, between 5th/6th) 15 years ago. It’s billed as “An Irish Bar with a Baseball Attitude.” Named for sportswriter Red Foley, the establishment boasts one of baseball’s largest memorabilia collections outside of Cooperstown. There are 3900 signed balls in the bar, including one Clancy claims is his “holy grail” (listen to the podcast to find out the signature).

Fun fact: It’s also home to the “Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame.” Clancy explains on the episode how that came to be.

Foley’s is a great place to watch any game, especially when the Yankees are on. It’s a great establishment, and you’ll learn why as you hear Shaun talk about his vision for the business, why he recognizes the unsung heroes of baseball and his inspiration behind all of the charity work done at the bar.

Foley’s is open 11a-2a daily and the kitchen stays open relatively late most nights. Find them on social media @FoleyNY and if you pop in, find Shaun and say hello.

Episode 20: Mark Lobel On The Lobel’s USDA Prime Steak Sandwich

Can you believe New Yankee Stadium opened 10 years ago? We’ll be looking back on the new Stadium throughout the course of this season. For starters, the ballpark ushered in a new era of Stadium food (#YankeeStadiYUM). And when you talk about the food offerings in the venue, you simply have to begin and end with the iconic Lobel’s USDA Prime Steak Sandwich.

In this episode, we speak with Mark Lobel, co-owner of Lobel’s, about the family business, the partnership with both the Yankees and Legends Hospitality, future menu offerings and much, much more.

Episode 09: OBJ Update, Best Drinks In The Stadium And Sit In A Suite!

Covering a lot in this episode-and-a-half of the Pinstripe Lanes Podcast – thanks for waiting a little over a week. Guest-host Mike Isserlis is back and we update you on the Odell Beckham Jr. / Yankees jersey and relationship story – one which we really had the lead on last week. Then, we talk about the best deal for cocktails in the Stadium. Finally, have you always wanted to sit in a luxury suite at the ballpark? The charitable opportunity we stumbled across may be your best bet.

Episode 06: How To Buy Merch At A Discount, July 4th Gear, Citi Field Tips And More

We cover quite a bit in the latest episode of the podcast. Anthony Restaino, my best friend and fellow life-long Yankees fan, joins me from Western New York to co-host.

We kick things off by talking about the new “Stars and Stripes” collection that MLB will wear on-field for the Fourth of July. The Yankees’ apparel, specifically the hat, is particularly strong in the batch currently on sale. We then also compare tips on how to buy your favorite Yankees gear below retail and/or Stadium shop prices. Then, we look ahead to this weekend, talking about Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. The Yanks visit the Mets this weekend; Anthony and I will be at Saturday night’s game so I offer a few recommendations as far as tickets and food options at the ballpark.

As always, thank you for listening – and be sure to rate, review and subscribe on your favorite podcast service. Also, have a question or need help with something Yankees-related? Reach out on social media – we’re @PinstripeLanes everywhere!

Episode 01: Talking Taqo Cups, Thick-Cut Bacon And Visiting Angel Stadium

The Pinstripe Lanes Podcast is centered around conversations and topics Yankees fans are interested in yet don’t normally see covered by other outlets. You’ll definitely hear that in our first episode; I chat with Mike Isserlis about the podcast’s name, visiting Angel Stadium where the Yankees just swept a series against Anaheim and Mike’s go-to food at the Stadium. Then we keep with the Yankee StadiYUM chat by talking with another classmate of mine from Syracuse University, Brad Holtzman. Brad is a part of the team that have brought the Taqo Cup, or taquito, to the Stadium’s food court behind section 127. We talk about everything from how the food was created, how it ended up in the Bronx and how the price for it is set.
