Crawl In Worcester

Posted on

IMG_20190608_122349Recently we took a trip to Newburyport thanks to the $10 Commuter Rail pass. This time we decided to head out west to Worcester.

IMG_20190608_123636IMG_20190608_133857_291

First stop was Volturno Pizza which was a short walk from Union Station. It was recommended by a friend as a close lunch option.  This was a big, open space and the pizza we had was very tasty, as were our cocktails.

IMG_20190608_134027_627We then headed up the street to Valentinos which is known for their bar snacks and cocktails. We were still stuffed from lunch but couldn’t pass up the Big Mac meatballs. Service was a bit slow but they were worth every bite.  We were there at an off time, though, so the chef might have been on a break.  We would definitely go back.

Next up was Lock 50 where we enjoyed our drinks on their art strewn patio. They had fun drinks and the patio was a fun place to hang.

IMG_20190608_151957LRM_EXPORT_14459001411876_20190608_170540161Next door was the new Maddi’s.  This place has a great beer list and fun cocktails.  We particularly liked the options of boozy iced coffees.  If you go, say hi to Alex, a good friend of Crawl in Boston!

IMG_20190608_172951Across the street we ventured to Whiskey On Water, featuring over 300 whiskeys.  The service was basically nonexistent here, sadly.  We’ve heard there are great servers here, but badly we didn’t get to see it.

IMG_20190608_170755_024We had time for one more spot and was recommended a bar about 10 minutes away. On our route, we passed a haunted house.

IMG_20190608_162244_844IMG_20190608_162244_841IMG_20190608_154638The Hangover Pub featured many bacon dishes and drinks.  We had the candied bacon and bacon fat fries and both were delicious!  We would love to go back and try more on the menu.

Crawl In Newburyport

Posted on Updated on

IMG_20190518_124407_600

We decided to take advantage of the MBTA $10 weekend pass as Saturday was just beautiful. We hadn’t been to Newburyport in years so decided on that destination. The trip from North Station took just over an hour. Once we arrived at the station, we were surprised to find no taxi stands and a requested Uber was 17 minutes away. The walk would have been around 25 minutes according to Google Maps.

IMG_20190518_124633_372Luckily there’s a Mexican bar, Metzy’s Cantina, right outside the station. So a quick margarita did the trick as we waited for the Uber to arrive.

IMG_20190518_131549_234IMG_20190518_134126_017IMG_20190518_140410_779We got dropped off a Brick & Ash for a quick snack and drink. Unfortunately service left a bit to be desired. The food was good, but despite there being very few other patrons, it took almost an hour to receive our order.

IMG_20190518_141442_676Now a little behind schedule, we headed across the street for some cocktails at The Poynt. Once more, we were surprised by the service, but the drinks were good.

IMG_20190518_144206_555IMG_20190518_145735_214IMG_20190518_150524It was time for a snack. So we headed over to Brine for a selection of caviar and oysters. The service was, again, a little slow, but at this point we realized that perhaps Newburyport is just a little slower going than Boston.  But the oysters were great, and we enjoyed sampling the caviar flight, which was a good deal.

IMG_20190518_151505IMG_20190518_153013_173Next we headed next door to The Paddle Inn. They had a fun selection of tiki inspired drinks.  We met a very delightful bartender with whom we swapped stories about visiting Mexico.

IMG_20190518_155157We were starting to get low on time. We rushed across the street for margaritas at the very lively Agave. Mr. Mobray recommends the Pink Cadillac margarita.

IMG_20190518_164425_258Next was Port Tavern.  A nice space with a local tavern vibe, this place was fondly recommended and we can see why this would be a local favorite.  They had good cocktails and and nice beer selection. IMG_20190518_170922_985We still had some time left before our train was leaving back to Boston. So we ran over to the famous Michael’s Harborside. Unfortunately they were having a private party upstairs and downstairs was packed so we didn’t get anything here. They do have an awesome patio which usually has a bar, but apparently we were a little too early in the season and it wasn’t set up. IMG_20190518_173547_224So we grabbed an Uber (10 minute wait this time) and headed back to Metzy’s next to the train station to have our last drinks of the day. Overall, this is a great day trip from Boston with lots of great options.  The service may be a little slower than usual, but it’s a beautiful town with great places to go.

The Pirate Bar Crawl / Boston Harbor Cruise

Posted on Updated on

pirate-cover_edited-2

What happens when you mix a Bar Crawl, a Party Cruise and Pirates?

You get the Crawl In Boston Pirate Crawl…YEAR 10!!!!!!!

napsterWe never thought we’d make it this far. On Saturday June 16, we’ll be bringing you the 10th edition of the finest themed bar crawls that Boston has to offer. It’s time to kick off the summer with the return of the Pirate Crawl. We are so excited.

One of the stops will take us onto a boat for a scenic trip of the Boston Harbor.

Same as last year, our boat will not be out of the Seaport but instead closer to the Faneuil Hall bars. That said…it’s a smaller boat.

So tickets will be VERY, VERY limited. We will have 50% less than usual.

After the party cruise, we’ll be navigating around Boston to the best bars the city has to offer.

Still not sure? A picture tells a thousand words and we’ve got hundreds of those.
