Boston Marathon 2021

Boston Marathon Weekend

The time has finally come! Boston Marathon weekend. The day that people decide to run 26.2 miles on a day off. If you are kicking back and enjoying the races or want to carbo-load before the races, here are a few options where you should visit before and after the big race!


Shake Shack:

Shake Shack is showing it’s appreciation for the Marathon coming back with partnering with the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge with it’s limited time Marathon Mocha Shake! All Boston-area locations, enjoy a frozen coffee treat with frozen custard and whipped cream, great for watching or having post-race! And if you’re at the Newbury location, we highly recommend stopping by for DJ tunes and marathon-themed swag! The shake is available now until Monday, October 11th.



Pasta is a staple to carbo-load before the big day, and don’t free feel to restrain yourself with just one serving! Bambara is having an all-you-can-eat dinner the evening before Marathon Monday. This goes on at 5 pm until 9 pm. Make sure to snag a ticket!



Speaking of carbo-load, Baramor, located just a few blocks from the infamous Heartbreak Hill portion of the Marathon course, is offering a special carbo-loading menu. All day on Sunday, October 10th, 2021, guests can choose from a selection of four pre-race pasta dishes off the Baramor Carbo-Loading Menu!


Beehive and Cosmica:

On Marathon Monday, Beehive and Cósmica will be hosting their 7th annual fundraiser in support of Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation. Both restaurants are in the South end and 100% of profits will be donated to the organization for the purpose to contribute to research and programs in trauma healing and preparedness. This event will start at 3 pm and go on until midnight! Make sure to make a reservation so you don’t miss out on this opportunity!


Grand Tour:

Need a good place to watch the last lick of the race? Grand Tour is having a Marathon 3-course extravaganza. So, enjoy a few drinks, great eats while watching historic racing for a while, because it is a Marathon, not a sprint 😉.
