Valentine Gras Registration Info

Posted on Updated on

We can’t wait to see you on Saturday for Valentine Gras

We have a few points of order to help make the day as smooth as possible:

Registration opens at 12:00 sharp and ends at 3:00.

You will need to bring either a printed Eventbrite ticket or show the app on your phone. If you don’t have a paper ticket or the phone app, you can use your ID to pick up your ticket. Please be ready when you get to the top of the line. We’ll be checking in hundreds of crawlers and nobody wants to be stuck behind the person who doesn’t have any of their stuff ready. Only the ticket buyer needs to be present. If multiple tickets were bought, you’ll get all your goodies at once and you can pass on the extras to your friends.

12:00 – 12:50 – Paddy O’s – 33 Union Street

1:00 – 1:50 – Hennessy’s – 25 Union Street

2:00 – 3:00 – The Blackstone Grill – 15 Union Street

We will have around 20 tickets available for day of sales for $25. These are on a first come, first serve basis. EXACT CHANGE ONLY. They can be purchased at any of the above scheduled registration bars

Bar schedule:

You will receive the entire schedule when you register. We have 8 bars total. All the bars will be in the Faneuil Hall and Financial District areas. We are not releasing the schedule prior to the crawl, as we want to keep this event as exclusive as possible for your own comfort. Please note, the bars have the right to refuse entry to anyone due to bar capacity or personal incapacity. Also, you will need to show a valid license or ID to gain entry to each of the bars (this is the bars’ policy).

CASH IS KING

I know that bringing your card might be easy. But when tons of people are trying to order drinks, it takes a lot more time to open and close a tab than to pay with cash. Plus you’d be surprised about how many people forget to close their tabs at the end of the night and leave for home without their credit cards. There are multiple ATMs around Faneuil Hall…check one out. Also, remember to tip your bartenders!

Remember to drink responsibly and use public transportation.  Don’t drink and drive!

MMHO: Boston Brewery/Distillery tour

Posted on

the tour

To combat the winter blues, we recently rented a limo bus to drive us to local breweries/distilleries.  We had 12 people in a limo bus rented from JB Livery.  It was $45 per person (including tip) for a full day.  I’d definitely recommend JB Livery if you’re in the market for a limo/bus/town car.  They’re very nice to work with, and our driver James was amazing!

We started off at Boston Winery.  We paid $10 for three tastings.  It was okay, but the staff member pouring wasn’t really offering any information about the wine.  He was spending a lot of time with other patrons, so maybe it was because we were a big group, he didn’t think we wanted to hear about the wines?  It was a little strange, and we left pretty quickly.  After this we headed across the parking lot to Boston Harbor Distillery.  What a gorgeous space!  Lots of wood and brick with a super high ceiling, this space was amazingly beautiful.  We paid another $10 per person for a tour and tasting.  We sampled their malt and rye whiskeys, which were very delicious.  We then had their roasted coffee liqueur, and their Boston cream liqueur (think Bailey’s only much tastier!).  Many of our crew purchased these.  If you’re looking for brunch cocktails, these would make a good one! The staff at Boston Harbor Distillery were very nice and fun, and this was a great stop.  I’d definitely recommend checking them out.

After Boston Harbor Distillery, we headed to Everett to Short Path Distillery.  This is a fairly new spot, in another very gorgeous space.  We couldn’t do a tour that day, so we just had some cocktails at the bar.  These were very tasty.  The tasting room was fun, with games (some of our crew played possibly the quickest game of Connect Four ever), and most importantly a very fun dog!  Short Path was a good time with good drinks and atmosphere.

Next we headed to Woburn to Lord Hobo Distillery.  This is a very sprawling brewery with a large tasting room.  They have very hoppy beers, such as their Boom Sauce.  They don’t pour a big variety, so be cautious if you go and you’re hot a fan of a very hoppy beer.

From there (after a brief stop for beer at Kappy’s) we went to Slumbrew’s Taproom in Boyton yards in Somerville.  If you haven’t been here, but it on your list.  It’s a nice space with lots of taps and friendly staff.  (Their beer garden in Assembly Row is also a great time, look for our guide to Assembly Row in a future MMHO).  Our time with the limo bus was winding down, so we headed back to town and ended the night at Blackstone on Union Street.  Boston has so many fun distilleries and breweries, you can tour a lot without travelling far.  By renting a limo, you can visit a few in one day, and keep the party going between stops.  This would be fun for a birthday, a bachelor/ette party, or just to celebrate a Saturday!  You don’t need a reason to get fancy.  Give it a shot!

Harry Potter Trivia Night is Coming Back

IMG_1707

We have our first champs. We had a very good time at our very first Harry Potter Trivia Night. Things went so well that we’re trying it again on March 2nd. Last night we had 25 teams compete and it was a full house for sure. This time we’re going to limit to 20 teams so people will have more breathing room. I know a few teams had to stand for awhile. We also have a baseline on what type of questions we should be asking so we are very excited. Get your tickets here.

It’s Harry Potter Trivia Night

Posted on

SOLDOUT.png

We’re very much looking forward to seeing you tonight. We never thought we’d get this much attention for hosting a trivia night. It’s going to be a blast.

We have a few points of order to make sure the night goes smoothly

1. If you are driving, the bar will validate parking at the Parcel 7 Garage
Located above the Haymarket T station. It’s $3.00 for 3 hours.

2. We’re going to have a packed house. We had to put a limit on how many teams could join as we were nearing capacity. That said, I know a few teams mentioned that they were having friends come by just to spectate. So I’m not sure what that number will be. But the bar will be closed to the public for our private Harry Trivia Event.

3. We’ve had a ton of interest about doing this again. Currently we’re planning on having another Harry Potter Trivia Night on March 2nd. Tickets should be available the next couple of days with the exact details.

See you tonight

CHEERS & BUTTERBEERS!

MMHO: Epcot drinking around the World

Posted on Updated on

We’re introducing a new feature on the website. We’ll use the Monday Morning epcotHangover to review places we’ve gone to or things we’ve done when we’re NOT crawling. Restaurants, bars, tastings, event, we’ll cover them here.

Last week was vacation time for Crawl in Boston.  We headed south to go on the most Magical Bar Crawl on Earth! We’ve gone to Epcot’s World Showcase a few times now, and it’s always a blast.  We normally go in September when the kids go back to school and it’s less crowded, but scheduling conflicts pushed our trip back to January.  Read on for our overview and tips and tricks.

We started in China.  We went to a stand which has several different slushy drinks.  chinaWe went with the Tipsy Ducks in Love, which was a mix of coffee, black tea, milk, and bourbon.  Caffeine seemed like a good way to start the day, and bourbon never hurts either. This was reminiscent of a Starbucks frap, pretty solid.  We were able to sit and take in the scenery since this is not a beverage you can drink quickly.

After China, we hopped over to Germany.  Here you can get such fare as sausages, pretzels and other German delicacies.  You can also get shots of Jager, which we passed on.  They have several beers, and we went with the Oktoberfest, which is always a safe bet.

From there, we headed to Italy, which is one of my personal favorites.  It seems like italythere’s always a fun show going on there, and the square is fun to sit in and watch. We always get a wine sampler.  I assume they have other things somewhere in Italy, but we always get the wine flight.

After Italy is the good old USA.  This always seemed like kind of a cheat to me, since EVERYTHING ELSE is America, but it’s there in all its star spangled glory.  We went for a classic Sam Adams and listened to an a capella group sing some Disney hits (which was better than it sounds, but we were already several drinks in).

After the USA, we headed over to Japan.  This is a good place for sake.  Normally we get a plain sake, but we decided to try something different and get a green tea sake slushy.  It was very sweet, and I think next time we’ll go back to regular sake.  We did get to watch a delightful drum show though.

moroccoNext stop was Morocco.  Here we got a red sangria that was tasty, if not super traditional.  Morocco is a fun area to explore, with neat little stores, and if you look around, you can find a building that looks like a….member of male anatomy.  Just find it.  It makes a great picture.

From Morocco, we headed to France.  Here they have some spectacular drinks, such as the Grey Goose Citron frozen lemonade.  It’s delicious, and they serve it in a (plastic) martini glass, so you feel extra classy.

From there we hit merry old England, which is where things got aggressive. Once we englandhit England, we were greeted with $15 Johnnie Walker flights, and a Imperial Beer tasting for $11, which included 5 generous samples (Bass, Harp, Guinness, Strongbow, and Boddington’s).  These are served in a friendly little faux pub that is pretty delightful and fun.  On our first trip around the (Epcot) world, we made the mistake of starting with England, and it set a strong tone for the day, so now we start at the other end.  On this particular trip, Mexico and Norway had really long lines, leading us to start in China.

From England, you go to Canada.  Here you can get something called a “Torontopolitan”, which is basically a vodka and cranberry, and they have all the normal Canadian beers as well.  mexico

We headed back to Mexico.  There’s a really fun little margarita bar in the big restaurant building here which we were trying to get into.  It still had a line on our second try, so we settled for a margarita from a stand.  They had Patron, though, so it wasn’t too bad at all.  We normally get to the park earlier, and I recommend you try to do the same and get into the bar.

Finally, we hit up Norway.  There you can get shots of aquavit, but luckily we had norwayenough bearings at this point to know that would be a terrible idea.  We split a Carlsburg, (which I am not positive is actually Norwegian).

After our excursion came to a close, we decided to forgo the light show and hop a cab back to our hotel.  There’s a back entrance to Epcot which leads out to the Disney Boardwalk where we were able get a cab (please don’t drink and drive at Disney, or anywhere!).  We highly recommend giving the Epcot crawl a try if you find yourself in Orlando.

sunset epcot

Pro tip:  If you go, and don’t stay at a Disney hotel, be careful if you take an Uber to the park.  We thought most Uber drivers would know how to get to the theme parks, but ours didn’t and followed his GPS, which takes you to the administration offices for Epcot.  Tell you Uber driver to follow the purple signs, not the GPS. There are actually signs for and Uber drop off area.

Design1 copyCalling all Muggles!  Hogwarts is coming to Boston. Crawl in Boston has teamed up with The Blackstone to host an epic Harry Potter trivia night based on the books and movies.  Grab a team of 2 – 4 and prepare to drop some HP knowledge like your name is Hermione.  There will be prizes, giveaways, and of course, a little bit of magic.
