This pre-Yankees game pit stop boasts an eardrum-popping P.A. system, and it’s not afraid to use it. Massive speakers blast whatever your heart desires on the Internet jukebox, so you might have to yell very, very loudly (and it might be bueno to utilize a little Spanish) to order your Budweiser so you don’t get Coors Light instead. But once seated at the long bar counter or at one of the restaurant-style tables, you can kick back and take in the scenery: Vega Alta’s got all the trappings of a proper, mid-size, generic sports bar. The walls are flooded with pictures and posters of the Yankees from Ruth to Rodriguez—and even a single Mets poster, if you’re into that sort of thing. Expansive flat-screen TVs broadcast whatever game’s playing, rerunning, or being overanalyzed on Sports Center. Beneath it all, a weathered (well-mopped) tile floor looks like it has shouldered many a spillage during its time on earth.
