Am going to be in Boston for 9 or 10 days to coincide with the World Series ( I hope !) and so am looking for recs for
1. Cool areas ( aside from immediately around Fenway) to eat and watch the game/grab a beer
2. Cool neigbourhoods for 'off' nights ( or post game ) with plenty of bars ( for two 30 something straight guys ) , good beers or cocktails and a buzzy bar or restauarant hopping atmosphere
In terms of preferred food, most things are fine - though authentic Italian and Spanish are good and one of us is a veggie. In terms of bars , anywhere that serves a good selection of micro/local beers is good , or spot on cocktails if we are suffering from jet lag and need max alcohol for minimum volume !
Thanks for any help you can give. We were in town in 04 so hopefully history will repeat itself !
