Sox Season for Every Fan
Maybe you just moved to Boston. Maybe you don’t like baseball (blasphemy, but we’ll forgive you).
Maybe you’ve been watching the sport your entire life. Maybe you’re a fan of a different team. Just kidding, those people don’t exist. Maybe you just saw Sandlot and decided you need to start watching baseball IRL.
It doesn’t matter to us. No matter what kind of ‘fan’ you are, we have a game plan for you. Pun intended.
THE CASUAL FAN
You like the Sox because you live in Boston and you know what’s good for you. But you probably don’t wear the same shirt every day during October because ‘it’s lucky’. That said, you do like the sport and you’ll want to catch a live game during the season.
Grab a pair of tickets through ACE and sit in the bleachers. You won’t go broke with those seats, but you’ll get to experience the vibe of Fenway Park just the same. And before you head inside the sacred walls of America’s oldest ballpark, stop by Eventide for a pre-game lobster roll. It’s all very Boston.
THE ANTI FAN
All teasing aside, there really are people who don’t like baseball. If that’s you, then you probably also don’t want to spend your hard-earned cash on tickets. Not a problem. There is still plenty of fun to be had on game day, even if baseball is not your thing. While crowds are flocking to Fenway Park, head the other way.
Have a manicure at MiniLuxe or a shave at Bostonian Barber, do a little shopping at Room 68, and then stock up on beer at Craft Beer Cellar before heading home where you can hang out and watch anything except baseball.
THE NEW FAN
You’re new to Boston. One of the first things you’ve probably learned is how much we love the Sox. If you want to be a part of it all (and why wouldn’t you?), then you’ve got to dive in full force.
Head straight to the ballpark. Get some swag at the Official Red Sox store. Grab a beer or two at the Bleacher Bar. Have a sausage on Lansdowne before heading in and catching your first ever game. After that, you’ll be hooked for life.
You probably already know exactly where you will watch all 81 Red Sox home games this year. It’s before and after where you might have some flexibility. But, one way or another, you want to be surrounded by like-minded die-hards.
We recommend heading to Tony C’s. Not only can you hang out on the roof top with views of the park but you can also catch pre-game coverage. Not to mention, throw back a few beers. Then head over to the game and root, root, root for the home team!
