Hey all,

I'm going to spend the next week (Fly out Sunday, June 9, 2019; Fly back Saturday morning, June 15, 2019) in Boston, MA. Never been there. I've been told to do the tour of Fenway, and we'll most likely attend a game on Monday or Tuesday. We'll probably also do the Freedom Trail on Sunday. Any suggestions? Particularly with bars or restaurants? Thanks!

    There are bars all around Fenway. Some around the basketball arena also. Faneuil Hall is a fun area to walk and eat around. The “real” Cheers is across the street from the Gardens. I spent a lot of time downtown waiting for my son to get off work or meet him for lunch.

    Union Oyster House. It's on the Freedom Trail.

    Now that the days are long, spending an evening in the North End (Boston's traditional Italian neighborhood) would be really pleasant.  You could work in dinner at one of the classic local spots like Trattoria Il Panino, a stroll through the neighborhood past the Old North Church and along the waterfront, and then a late dessert at Mike's Pastry or Caffe Vittoria.

    Been a while, but agree with DevilGrad.  We just wandered that neighborhood and went into a place for dinner because it smelled great.   Whole in the wall, mom n pop joint.  Actually only saw mama.  Great wine selection - red or white.  Served out of the jug into regular water glasses.  Dinner was fabulous, and reasonably priced..  Trust your nose and enjoy.

    If you can, find a candlepin bowling alley and have frustrating fun for a couple of hours!

    I recall doing the freedom trail on a Sunday and regretting it because most of the sites along the trail were closed.

    Just saw your post. Don't know if you'll see this 'cause you're already in Boston. If you get to Faneuil Hall, take a walk over to the Marriott Custom House ( it's a timeshare property on the street adjacent) and see when they allow visitors to go up on the catwalk at the top of the property ( about 20 stories)...great  360 view of downtown, the harbor, north end, seaport district etc. There is a charge ($10 bucks or so) that goes to charity.

    Or, buy a timeshare and go up for free.!

    Here's hoping. Get the picture of Kuraly ready to hang in Goggin. :)

    I was talking with another Miami hockey fan on Sunday and our discussion was do you want Kuraly to win more than you want Boston to lose.  We both are pulling for the Blues.

    Kuraly has a whole career ahead of him, hopefully a long and successful one. Us Blues fans have waited over 50 years for a Stanley Cup. He can wait, especially when the alternative is Boston winning again.

    Everything else being equal, I root for the team with the Miamian.

    I certainly agree with that, but we did not feel all things were equal, very tired of Boston winning.

    Second year in a row, the Stanley Cup winner play by play announcer is a Miami alum.  


    Coincidence????

    No coincidence, he'll be inducted into the Broadcast Hall of Fame next week.

    Technically, the play-by-play for 18 NHL finals have been announced by a Miami grad.

    For NBC. The teams broadcaster is a Miami grad though, same as the Caps last year. Hopefully he brings the cup to Oxford as well.
