Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill
1265 Boylston St.
Boston, MA 02215
The Sox and Pats are both away Sunday afternoon, so why not watch both games simultaneously on one of the many TVs at Jerry Remy’s, just steps from Fenway Park near Kenmore Square? Both locations will be bumping since the food, drinks and numerous flat screens draw crowds any day of the week. If the sun is shining, guests can even enjoy the beer selection and watch the Patriots and other local teams from the spacious roof deck.
Stadium Sports Bar and Grill
232 Old Colony Ave.
South Boston, MA 02127
South Boston bar Stadium is a great place to watch the Patriots play on one of the 20 HD TVs. Play some pool pre or post game, sip hand-crafted beers and keep up on the scores of more than just the Pats since Stadium has the NFL Sunday Ticket. Affordable food options include pizza for around $10 or appetizers perfect for sharing like calamari or quesadillas for under $8.
Sports Grille Boston
132 Canal St.
Boston, MA 02114
Also featuring NFL Sunday Ticket, visitors won’t have trouble viewing football games on one of the over 100 plasma televisions. Located just steps from the TD Garden in the West End area, it’s a low-key sports bar that even has patio seating. American pub grub fills the menu and there are over 25 beers on tap. Because of its location, it is great for pre and post Bruins or Celtics games, but it’s just as fun for watching a Patriots game when they are away or you can’t make it down to Gillette for a home game.
