We’ve found 25+ local Kentucky Derby parties that might interest you (in no particular order).
Be sure to visit over the next few days.
Next up on the agenda is the Pirate Crawl / Party Cruise on June 8th. Get your tickets now. We have a limited amount of spots as the boat as a real capacity. Don’t be left out of this awesome event! Pictures from yesterday are now online here. Cheers!
We have a few quick points of order:
Registration opens at 12:00 sharp and ends at 3:00 at Paddy O’s located at 33 Union Street. Registration will be by LAST name on your EventBrite ticket. If you didn’t get your electronic ticket, check your spam folder or sign into your EventBrite account to find it there.
You will need to show a photo ID matching the name on the ticket. If you purchased tickets for your friends, and the tickets are under your name, you will need to pick up their wristbands and paraphernalia. You will need to bring either a printed Eventbrite ticket, or show the app on your phone.
Once you register you will get a special wristband. You’ll need this wristband for access to bars on the crawl. You will get the full schedule at which bars to be at during our scheduled times. During these time slots, the bars will only accept people with the wristbands. Some bars will be letting people in without wristbands but will be charging an additional cover to enter and drink specials won’t apply.
We will have about 50 total tickets available for day of sales for wristbands only for $30 which will get you access to all of the bars and drink specials. These are on a first come, first serve basis. EXACT CHANGE ONLY. They can be purchased at Paddy O’s from 12:00 – 3:00. We will not be selling wristbands prior to 12:00, no exceptions, even though there will be bar crawl staff setting up.
You will receive the entire schedule when you register. We have 8 total bars participating. All the bars will be in the Faneuil Hall and Financial District areas. We are not releasing the schedule prior to the crawl to avoid crawl crashers (we’ve already seen the Facebook and Twitter posts). 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.
Portion of the proceeds for Saturday’s Crawl will go towards The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013. All proceeds from the photo booth will be going towards the charity.
We were able to get some last minute rally towels printed (hoping they arrive by tomorrow morning). We have a very limited amount however. They will be on sale tomorrow for $10 each. 100% of the proceeds will also go to The One Fund.
Remember to drink responsibly.
Have a great time tomorrow! COWABUNGA!
Originally we we planned to have our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Crawl today but with all the uncertainty yesterday, I had to postpone to next Saturday it with safety being the #1 priority. Late last night we caught him! So now I have a whole afternoon open. So I’m borrowing an idea from “Wear Boston Day” and doing an impromptu “Wear Boston Bar Crawl”
So lets all break out our Bruins, Sox, Celts, Pats, Revs, Cannons, Breakers, Lobsters, Tea Men, Boston based colleges… Whatever it is as long as it says “BOSTON” on it and wear it this Friday to show support and pass this onto your friends lists as well because “WE ARE ALL BOSTON!
I know many of you can’t make it to the ninja turtle crawl next week so if you want to wear your outfit today, feel free to do so.
I’m doing this on the fly so I do have a makeshift schedule but it’s in no way 100% accurate. I’ll have some koozies and name tags available. I’m going to ask for a $5 donation for that stuff in which 100% of the proceeds will go to The One Fund for the Marathon victims.

Last week I came across this article about the 12 best scorpion bowls in Boston via Boston Eater.
I thought it would be a nice challenge for 2013, perhaps one bowl per month. So per how most of how these drinking things go, I shared with a few people and it went from doing it over a year to doing it in one day. We had to change to schedule a bit to make sure we could hit 12 places but we’re planning on doing it to not only finish off 2012 but also to celebrates Cons birthday.
The best bowls had places all over. So I modified so we could do it all via MBTA.
So we did it. And it was an adventure for sure. Cons decided that a ranking system should be put in place so we did. Do I remember being at each place? YES. Do I remember how I got to each place? NO
