Saturday Is "Trash Your Ex" Night
This Saturday Brooklyn's minor team baseball team will host "Trash Your Ex Night." Fans are encouraged to bring romantic memorabilia which will be compacted in a garbage truck at the stadium.
We will focus upon cutting ties with former relationships and ridding yourself of heartbreak resulting from an ex-girlfriend or boyfriend, or ex-husband or wife. “Trash Your Ex” is about moving on, and feeling good about it! Fans are encouraged to bring old memories of their ex to trash outside MCU Park into a DSNY garbage truck. Old gifts such as teddy bears or sweat shirts, love letters, picture frames, and much more are just some of the items we anticipate receiving that day.The Brooklyn Cyclones are a farm team of the New York Mets.
RELATED: Gothamist notes that the Cyclones' plan echoes the now infamous Disco Demolition held in 1979 at Chicago's Comiskey Park, a racism and homophobia-tinged event in which fans near-rioted in joy after thousands of disco records were exploded in center field. Disco Demolition is often cited by music historians as marking the end of the disco era in popular culture.
