  • So freaking pumped - just booked The Verb hotel (stayed there in '16 / was a blast and right now a little cheaper than Commonwealth).  Anyone book hotels on the rumors / before shows were officially announced?  Just curious how much cheaper prices were (and want to know how much to beat myself up for not doing it..!).
    i looked up hotels when the rumors popped up. saw a bunch of hotels for around $500-600 for like 6 nights (so like around $100 a night) and now they're crazy expensive. and now booking.com is showing me like 4 hotels as opposed to like 25 hotels. wish i woulda booked when i had the chance but once it dies down i'll look again i guess

    Try the Inn at Longwood. Cheapest we could find in the area. 10 min walk to Fenway.

    Don't wait.  As I noted above in this thread, that's move-in week for BU, and likely several other colleges. The longer you wait, the more rooms will be at a premium b/c you 'll be dealing not only with the PJ shows but with families dropping kids off at college.

    My buddy and I are considering staying in the South End area but aren't familiar w/ Boston. Is this a good place to stay? Any recommendations are appreciated!

    Looks like The Buck is sold out.  I booked at The Boxer last week.  Never been there but it will be nice to be downtown during the day(s).  I'm sure the T after the show will be packed but I can deal with that.

    What part of the South End?  Most of the South End is great... some of the best food in the city (and some parts walkable to Fenway).  But there are a few specific areas I wouldn't recommend to tourists.  Nothing all that terrible, but not where you probably want to spend your vacation.

    Thanks for the reply @SP218311 :smiley:  It's located on Fremont. Looks like it's near Dartmouth St.

    Southie’s fine. Have friends that live there and I’ve been going out there for years, can’t say I’ve ever had a problem. Parking sucks beyond belief but you could say that about any part of Boston. The whole gentrification thing kinda blows but many of the lifers are still hanging on. As long as you don’t mind dodging drunk Irish bros with your car, not a bad place to stay.

    Tremont & Dartmouth is good!  You can walk to Fenway too (prob 15 minutes).  Tons of good food over there too... try Picco, Blackbird Donuts, The Gallows, and Coppa!  Let me know if you need other tips ( I work in the area and live not too far away).

    Southie and the South End are 2 very different parts of the city.

    I work on Dartmouth (between Columbus and Stuart).

    The Beehive is nice, too. Addis Red Sea for dinner.

    Pretty sure I already know the answer to this question but here goes.

    As far as the lotto goes, would you think Fenway night 1 is gonna be tougher then Fenway night 2?

    My guess would be yes.

    I think with Fenway-1 being on a Sunday is the reason. I know if i only make one show, Fenway-1 is the one i want to attend.

    There are some nice apartments on airbnb for under $300/night right near Fenway.  I just found a 1BR for $190/night.  And some other bigger ones (one I was looking at was $360, but it had 4 beds).  3 blocks from Fenway. Hotels aren't the only option

    Yes. Sunday night of Labor Day Weekend vs Tuesday night with kids going back to school. I think Night 1 is going to be a very tough ticket.

    Pretty sure I already know the answer to this question but here goes.

    As far as the lotto goes, would you think Fenway night 1 is gonna be tougher then Fenway night 2?
    Yes. Sunday night of Labor Day Weekend vs Tuesday night with kids going back to school. I think Night 1 is going to be a very tough ticket.
    Night 2 on the other hand, for those who can make it...  =)

  • On the fence about this. Cheap flight. But crazy expensive lodging. I'd be going solo. But have a good member #, so tickets would be decent seats. And i told myself no pj until there's new music. Decisions decisions
