While the Fenway Frank may not have won over my taste buds, the city of Boston, their sports and their people stole a piece of my heart! I have so much love for the city of Boston and look forward to visiting again soon!
Being a devoted sports girl, there were several items on my summer bucket list related to visiting stadiums and watching sporting events from basketball to baseball. I was able to check one off my list while in Boston with a visit to Fenway Park.
We started the Fenway experience at the Bleacher Bar. Given its name because it is literally below the Fenway Park Bleachers.
If you’re ambitious (like 8 hours pre-game ambitious) you can even get a seat in the bar and watch the entire game with free front row seats.
Yes, this shot was actually taken inside of the bar. My other favorite part of Bleacher Bar. They have windows in the bathroom that face in this direction so you never have to miss a minute of action.
Yes, Boston people definitely take their sports seriously (one of my favorite things about them!)
Pictured above is the awesome gentleman that made my Fenway Park experience happen, my friend Greg. Thanks Mr Pickle! Inside joke, has something to do with one awesome pickle shirt!
Post Bleacher Bar we headed over to Island Creek Oyster Bar.
Yes, most people eat hot dogs pre-game. This crew eats oysters!
They were talking up these oysters for a week on Martha’s Vineyard, like constantly obsessing over Island Creek Oysters.
Now, I would not consider myself an oyster connoisseur by any means, but I have had my fair share of oysters from coast-to-coast and I’m not going to lie, these are the best I’ve ever had.
Following a dozen oysters and couple apps, we headed over to the game. Luckily it was a night game because Boston was getting pretty hot and sticky during the days! This also made for the most amazing sunset over the park.
Unfortunately the Sox aren’t looking so great this year and they lost to the Yankees, but we still had a great time!
I really don’t understand why people hate Boston fans, they’re awesome, just a little passionate with a side of incredible blunt-ness!
