My family and I have been a little baseball crazy lately, as we’ve been attending a lot of baseball games this season (disclosure: I am a #MetsMom). So, when I heard that Duane Reade (which is our go-to drugstore) was holding a MLB FanFest Trivia Event during last week, I was excited to check it out (such a cool opportunity, right?). I wore my Mets cap to show my team colors! When I got there, the line was around the block. Seriously.
When I got inside, there was a table where you could play trivia using iPads to win baseball tickets. They also were serving Delish Chocolate Sandwich Cookies and Delish Probiotic Greek Yogurt Covered Pretzel Bites (which were off the hook). When I was there, some people won tickets for Mets games at Citi Field over the weekend. One woman screamed so loud in excitement when she won her tickets!
While I didn’t end doing the trivia (while my husband would have held his own, I would have bombed it), I still had fun (and that’s what it’s about, right?). I really appreciated that Duane Reade hosted this!
While I was at this Duane Reade (it was on Broadway at 52nd), I was able to pick up diapers (hey, we were out!) and then I checked out the myriad of cool treats Duane Reade had to offer.
I surveyed the offerings: An ICEE Machine, a DIY Yogurt machine with toppings, a freezer with frozen treats, a smoothie and juice counter, and a an array of soft drinks and cut up fresh fruit.
I grabbed a cherry pomegranate and cherry ICEE (the yogurt looked great, but I’m dairy free right now) and sauntered back out into the summer heat.
