Urgent - best place to catch Bruins SC game 1 - with great chow of course !

willowan | May 28, 2011 12:22 AM

Morning everyone !

I fly into town from the UK tomorrow , hence the urgency

You will see from my previous posts that I am going to see the Sox Wed. afternoon , but now feel I must also catch the Bruins game 1 on TV so as to have a complete Boston sporting day as my last day in town.

This does not, of course , mean that I am prepared to forego great Chow ! So, where should I head to catch the game ?

Previous idea was to see Sox, then head to MFA and then , crazy as it seems, head back downtwon to our hotel and hop over to Cambridge for a few beers in Craigie, Miracle of Science, Cambridge Brewing, Lord Hobo, Plough & Stars, People's republik, Cantab lounge perhaps grabbing a good/great burger in one of these places.

Is this still a plan or should we abandon it and either stay near MFA or Fenway for beers and Chow, head back downtown and do similar, or something else ?

I wondered perhaps if booking Eastern Standard would give us both a good end to our stay ( have never been ) and also allow us to stay near Fenway MFA and see the Bruins agme ?

So looking for that perfect combo of chow, beers and the Bruins game and need your recs urgently. Hope you can help !
