    what do you consider cheap? Don't forget, you'll be in boston, don't expect any $2-3 beers, if you find that, let me know where that dive is

    My guess would be Sullivan's Tap for the cheapest in the area. Best? I don't think it qualifies.

    I think Clarke's may have like $2 miller lites, but I haven't been there in quite awhile.

    Go to the Wishlist Foundation Party-they always have drink specials and tons of PJ stuff for sale.
    I'm hoping that it is at the Harp. Backstreet Lover played there two years ago and they are an amazing PJ cover band. Hope they are there again!

  • Great place for a cheap beer is the Penalty Box, right across the street (few doors down from Harp). I might set up shop there before I head over to see BSL

    --I second this suggestion. My experience with the Harp is to get their early if you want a seat at all. A fun but packed place.

    Sully's Tap is great! Kind of a hidden treasure around the Garden. The other bars will packed with possible lines, but Sully's is always easy to get in. Usually can get cheep beers (that aren't microbrews, sam adams, etc). I partied there before Muse in March and had a great time.

  • Big Fan of Porters bar and grill right on POrtland street steps away.
  • Sullivan's Tap has the longest bar in Boston and they have Brubaker beer which is wicked cheap!

  • Bukowski Tavern on Dalton (near Boylston). I go there when I stay in Boston, and they advertise 99 bottles of beer on the wall - and when you walk in and see them all you will be in heaven :D Great beer selection, plus named after the late, incorrigible author. Good burgers too.

    Sissy K's in Fanueil Hall has $1 drafts of Bud, Bud Light and Bud Select. It's about a mile away from the Garden but might be less crowded.

    How much will it cost to see BS at the Harp?
  • YourDirtisMyfoodYourDirtisMyfood BostonPosts: 3,569
    so is the pre-game meetup officially at the Harp? Thanks for the tip on BSL. By the way, McGanns on Portland St. isn't too shabby either.


    BTW, Peral Jam??? :lol:

    I noticed that! but I totally do the same thing every time I try to type Pearl Jam.

    and I have no idea what it will cost to see BSL at the Harp, good question. But whatever it is it will be worth it!

  • Saw BSL in Manchester a few years ago and I agree they are quite good, better than what I expected. They can play pretty much any PJ tune, except Dirty Frank which I obnoxiously requested for most of the night.

    has this been deemed the Boston Wishlist party location..?

    If not, why not?

    Backseat is an amazing PJ cover band..
