Yes, evoo does smoke at high heat and things can go south fast. The difference here is in how quickly I am heating the oil and how quickly the process lasts. The reason I use evoo, frankly is because of a chef that I think runs the best italian restaurants in the city, Frank Prizinsano, I got this technique from his instagram. The key here is that you put up a stainless pan -- do not use non stick!! -- and get it screaming hot, then dump the oil in and right after that the already cracked egg goes in. The egg white will form a kind of custardy souffle while keeping the yolk runny and give a crisp burntish bottom that is a whole different flavor and texture than the standard fried egg. This egg goes great on top of things like salads.
As a club psl holder, I had access to a vip area, which was in the Jets Green Room lounge. I have to admit that they did a great job with that. It was a pretty decent free food and liquor spread. Also, I am guessing the NBA has something going on with their rookie class in NYC as pretty much every first round draft pick was in there, and man can those tall skinny kids eat.
As far as the jets cash not working, I didn't use it or really have need to as everything was free where I was, but I do have to at least give the Jets some credit for knowing it was probably going to be rocky from the jump and being upfront about it. From the email they sent all of us the other day, the one I am assuming anyone that signed up for it had read.....
"As you may have heard, this season we are launching Jets Cash, a feature that allows Jets Rewards members to use their Card(s) to make purchases at MetLife Stadium. If you are heading to tomorrow night’s Green & White practice at MetLife Stadium with your Jets Rewards Card(s) you are invited to participate in our Jets Cash “beta test” and will receive a financial incentive for testing it!
The Green & White practice tomorrow night is the first stadium event since the launch of Jets Cash, and we are inviting Season Ticket Holders to be part of a group to test the technology and user experience. We have worked hard to get Jets Cash ready, but because this is a real test you may nevertheless encounter some small bugs or details that need improvement. In fact, finding those things now, before the season starts, is the whole point of the test.
As a thank you for your involvement, we’ll give each account (not seat) that makes a transaction at Green & White an additional $20 in Bonus Bucks, which you can use at any Jets home game this season. This bonus is on top of the up to $40 in Bonus Bucks that you can get just by signing up.
To learn more on how to sign up, click here. Signing up is easy, just follow the instructions in the link for what to email.
Hope to see you at Green & White!"
So they were upfront about it being a test, and for your time and effort submitting yourself to being test dummies for it they were giving an extra $20, which it seems will be good to use all season. I don't know that it would be something I would take the time to get on the phone and complain about, but to each his own.
