Default Going to boston on tuesday and would like some help from the locals.

A friend of mine and I are driving over Tuesday morning and gunna hang out for a few hours and then catch a game at fenway.

I've got a few parking tips from others but was wondering if any of you fine folk can give me some input

Also where is a good place for lunch? I'm leaning towards checking out cheers...

What can I expect to pay for food at fenway? I realize its not gunna be cheap. But I have to try a fenway frank

One more thing, is there anything else that is a must see while i'm in town?

Appreciate any help/input you can give me...

I'd bring $30 for food at fenway(more if you're gonna be drinking). Last year it was $3.50 for a hotdog I can only imagine it went up... A 20oz soda was $4.50. I don't drink but I think beer was $7(someone want to help me on that one?). I'd eat outside before the game and then just buy a hotdog and a drink inside to minimize cost.

As far as other things to check out, the prudential as was mentioned is cool, the museum of science usually has some cool exibits, faniel hall is always a good place to hang out and grab some food, and the aquarium is 2min from there if you want to check out the fishies or a seal show.

Cheers isn't really worth it IMO. I really like Charlie's Saloon on Newbury St. If it's nice outside you can eat outside and watch some of the cheesiest into themselves fashion freak people walking around. Newbury St. is close to Fenway and offers some of the City's most expensive shopping (I don't like the shopping but rather the people watching and the food @ Charlie's which is great). For parking - I wouldn't cheap out. Just park in a lot behind Fenway. The key word is BEHIND. You don't want to park on Landsdowne St - takes forever to leave. The Cask & Flagon is a good bar (Top of Landsdowne ST - Red Sox Central) with a lot of really cool baseball pictures. If it's nice outside def. take a Duck Tour - they're fun and interesting.

I would make Fenway the homebase for parking. That way when your long ass day is done you just have to jump in the Subie and go!

Hope that helps - Go Sox!!

I'm going to the game too on Tuesday - I would suggest Boston Brewery for food - they've got good fried pickles and it's close to Fenway.

Cheers is a tourist trap. A study in lame food. Check out Newbury and Boylston streets for good food and great people watching. Anything around Fenway is pretty packed B4 game. Park wherever you can.

When I go to a game at Fenway, I eat at the D'Angelos (Large Number 9!) near the park. There is also a liquor store right next door to D'Angelos.

lessee.. charlies and boston brewery?

sounds good.. I think I will take that advice about trying to save money inside the park.

We are going on the tour also

Parking close by sounds decent, I got a bunch of tips that I should park further away and take the T in. but being within walking distance of the car would be nice too.

not bringing the subie, I dont even want to park it in albany all day haha, let alone a city as big as boston

thanks very much for the suggestions, they are a very big help...

If you use your AAA card you can even save $1 on that large sub

And put it toward the $6 beers.

Definitely Boston Beer Works (right across Brookline St.) Get there early - it's a mob scene before a game, but excellent beer that's much cheaper than in the park. Have a bunch of beer, bunch of food, then get into the park and have a single dog and a beer. Or two.

If you've got to get on the Turnpike anyway, I'd think about parking in the Prudential Center garage. The whole-day rate must be under $30. Just walk back there from the park or take the T after the game. Leave the garage and jump right on the turnpike. No muss, no fuss.

thanks a bunch for the tips! speaking of AAA i need to stop there on the way to work and pick up a map. I almost went to borders and plunked $10 on one. AAA can sure come in handy with their free maps sometimes

anyway, thanks again, I'll be online tonite before I leave in the morning to check this thread again.
