Play The CBS Boston Bracket Challenge
82 Lansdowne Street
Why: Over 90 HDTV’s and a state of the art sound system. Some of the best comfort food in Boston and, of all things Beantown, a great raw bar. Grab some oyster shooters and watch some 3 point shooters in action. Join their All Star club and get special privileges, including the ability to cut the line and never miss a shot.
1592 Tremont Ave
Why?: Great Mission Hill location + who’s going to complain about 25 cent wings and bucket specials of cold beers?
The Greatest Bar
262 Friend Street
Why?: 20 HDTV’s and the home of a 14′ HDTV. Hungry? Two words: Pretzel Sticks (w/ cheese sauce). Trust me.
Brighton Beer Garden
386 Market Street
Why?: For all the beer drinkers out there, you have 10 draughts, 44 domestic bottles, and 34 imported bottles to choose from. Switch it up every game!
166 Canal Street
Why: Sports Illustrated named them the Best Sports Bar in America a few years ago, enough said. Make sure you last for the late games though, as pizza is 1/2 off after 10:00pm.
Jerry Remy’s NEW Seaport Location
@ Liberty Wharf
250 Northern Ave
Why?: It’s impossible to miss a play at the new Jerry Remy’s due to the 40′ wall of 32 LED TV screens. Also, TV’s in the bathrooms, mirrors, stalls, booths (w/ your own remote), behind the bar, on the ceiling. You name it, you’ll see it. Grab a menu and order Mini-Chimi Cheeseburgers, if you like your hoops spicy.
@ The Boston Marriot Copley Place
Why?: Upscale sports bar with one of the greatest collections of local craft beers. Catch the game on a large projection screen or on a semi circle of TV’s that wraps around the space. Bring a group and grab a few Allagash “Triple Reserves” and Harpoon “100 Barrel Series.” Don’t forget the “Champions Sampler” platter with two dozen wings, 8 beef & cheddar sliders, fully loaded waffle fries and stack of onion rings.
