The Red Sox home opener is right around the corner! If you don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a ticket, head to one of these awesome game-day bars to watch:
"Literally tucked beneath Fenway’s center-field seats, Bleacher Bar offers something no other venue can: a direct view of the legendary diamond through two giant garage door-sized windows. On game day (which, as you might imagine, gets pretty crowded, all the more reason to start early!), treat yourself (and maybe your friends) to a bucket of ice-cold ponys ($20), brisket and horseradish sandwiches on rye, pastrami & swiss flatbreads, and fried pickles"
The Lower Depths
"For a changeup, you’ll find this craft beer mecca (17 rotating drafts, 150 bottles) on the fringe of Kenmore… and in the opposite direction of the slow-moving crowds. The menu is lights-out (for your arteries) with tater tot platters (try The Kenmore with melted cheese, applewood smoked bacon, chipotle aioli, scallions) and loaded foot-long dogs (Boston Strangler with sautéed onions and "mackin’ cheese", White Trash with beer cheese dip and potato chips). NOTE: LD is cash only, Mr. Moneyball."
"With 90 HD TVs, a booming sound system, and up/down bars to help you before, during, and after a Sox outing, Game On! earns that exclamation point with heaping platters of nachos, loaded steak fries, and Asian BBQ pork riblets. During the 7th inning stretch, sneak in a game of ping pong at the newly minted Blazing Paddles, or step into the batting cage to thoroughly disprove your "I could hit better than this guy" claims."
"You can work the count at Cornwall’s with their extensive beer list (25 drafts, 35 bottles), hard-to-find-in-this-town pitchers ($18), and a dozen different burgers on the menu (try the Beast Burger with spicy chili & melted mozzarella). They also have 24 starters of all shapes and sizes (and names), such as Potato Cups, Angels (and Devils) on Horseback, and Fried Fish Bits -- plus standards like nachos, wings, potstickers, and sliders. When the game gets slow(er), take a look at their wall of board games or shoot some pool during the seventh pitching change of the inning."
The home opener is on Monday April 13th at 3:05pm.
