Time to tie on your running (or walking) shoes! It’s time for the Boston Marathon (again!) Not only we get to experience one of Boston’s most unique days, but we get to experience in less than a full year! If you’re training and looking to carbo-load before the big day, or figuring out where to watch, keep reading!
Where to watch:
Experience Fenway when it is the liveliest! Right next to Fenway Park, not only you will be around the fans getting ready to watch the game, but you can also watch the race as they project it on a 30+ foot screen!
If you want to make a bar crawl out of Fenway, all the bars are opening early around 8 am (which gives you ambles of time to find your seat before the first race at 9:02 am)! Either you’re prepping to watch the Red Sox game or enjoying the races, the weather will sure be beautiful to spend some time outside on its porch as well!
Chef Michael Sherpa’s French bistro, located just steps from the finish line on Newbury Street, will be offering a special Bibs, Burgers, and Bubbles menu to celebrate bib-wearing runners with Marathon Monday! With the restaurant opening early, the special menu will feature a selection of burgers, including Grand Tour’s popular lamb burger, alongside a thoughtfully curated menu of French and domestic bubbles, and, of course, frites.
Steps away from the action, beloved Newbury St. eatery Sonsie will be offering a modified menu featuring specialty brunch items. Seating will be first come first serve.
Watch the race in prime location and try a new place! Previously McGreevy’s, this spot still has the old Irish charm that its former restaurant had. Try a pint and enjoy the views from the newest Boylston staple.
Come celebrate early and continue the celebration throughout Monday at Dillons! Only steps away from the finish line Dillons is extending its hours and you can grab a seat right in time for the first race!
Join this seafood restaurant with live entertainment, culinary stations, and front row seats of their patio to get the best view to cheer on the runners! Grab your tickets today.
