You remember the Rat? Kudos. That was a hell of a place to see a band. Lots of big new wave bands debuted there. Blondie, Elvis Costello, the list is huge, and goes on and on. The Ramones were awesome in that dingy short roofed hole. Is the Paradise still hosting bands? Yikes, the B52s and Devo came alive in there.rufus said:clubbin'. grab a copy of the Boston Phoenix and see who's in town playing while you're there. there's bound to be a decent band playing somewhere in one of the hundreds of small clubs in town. too bad the Rat is now a parking garage.
and yeah, go to Fenway, just so you can say you did. most beautiful ballpark in the world.
Yes! And the lobster roll!thinkcooper said:Kelly's Roast Beef in Revere Beach after a night of drinking for fried clams and fries,
Newbury Street?jptaylorsg said:I third Fenway. Cheers will be a disappointment. The food there sux big time.
There are a lot of Great restaurants along a street that dead-sneds into the Commons (I don't remember the name of the street (sorry), but it's very popular and has a significant number of stores, bars, etc. Ask someone). As far as bars go, tough to go wrong, but in the past a lot of the athletes hugn out at Daisy Buchanons. Might still.
Also, the art museum is really nice. It's south of the Fens right next to Northeastern Univ.
Enjoy! I LOVE Boston
never went there. too dumbass metal head for my tastes. only made it to the Rat a couple of times, but saw a great show there by the Fleshtones. and still miss the Channel.firstrax said:Bunratty's? I still have the scars I got there. Think it was the Cryptic Slaughter concert.
