What happens when you mix a Bar Crawl, a Party Cruise and Pirates?
You get the Crawl In Boston Pirate Crawl…YEAR 10!!!!!!!
We 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.
Or if you can’t think of an outfit, we have shirts available on Threadless
Limited Tickets Available between $25.00 – $30.00. The price will increase as the event gets closer and tickets get low.
The registration bar will be e-mailed to ticketed customers the week of the event. The full schedule is released at time of registration. 5 – 7 bars will be included on the event. We don’t release the bar schedule ahead of time as people used to post our schedule online and we got lots of party crashers which made the bars way over capacity.

When we’re not organizing bar crawls, we still find ourselves visiting bars and fun spots around the city.
The Fenway area is well known for the raucous pregame bars that line Landsdowne Street, but the area is also home to some great dining and amazing cocktail bars. We recently made a day of it to try out one of the newest additions to the area, as well as hitting up our favorite joints.
We started the outing at Sweet Cheeks Q. Ran by former Top Chef, and current and always badass Tiffani Faison, this popular spot has been open for about five years and is well known for its delicious take on southern BBQ. We had dinner plans later on, but we couldn’t help but order the bucket o’biscuits. These are monstrous and delicious, with an amazing honey butter on the side. Flaky and tender, these are a carb lover’s dream. An order comes with four, but that is plenty due to their size.
We meant to head next to Faison’s adjacent venture Tiger Mama, but it wasn’t open yet. But we can report form previous visits that this Asian fusion spot also has great food and well-made Tiki based cocktails. We continued down Boylston St. to Citizen Oyster Bar. This place is as well known for its whiskey selection as the bivalves in the name. This isn’t a stuffy or fancy place as many oyster bars in Boston tend to be, this place is almost more of a dive bar feel (in a good way). They have a whiskey focused cocktail menu, but will just as happily serve you a shot and a beer.
Next up was the main event of the evening, dinner at Eventide Fenway. A causal concept from the more formal Eventide Oyster Co in Portland Maine, this new counter style restaurant opened recently and we couldn’t wait to try it. True to the fast-casual style dining room set up, there are no reservations and mostly counter-style seating, so it may be tough to go with a group. We managed to snag part of a table and began perusing the menu. We sampled much of it, and it was quite a feast. We started with oysters, of course, and they were well shucked and served with the usual accoutrement. The highlight of the meal was the brown-butter lobster roll. Instead of the traditional New-England style split hot dog roll, this is served on something reminiscent of a steamed bao. Fluffy and light, this is a great an unobtrusive vehicle for the tender, buttery lobster meat. We also sampled the tuna crude, which was crisp and refreshing; the clam chowder (a rich yet thin broth, not too thick), the chicken katsu sandwich (crunchy yet juicy) and roasted cauliflower. Everything here was good, but the portions were small and the price tag was large. That is not unexpected for what is clearly fresh, well sourced seafood, but it’s a little jarring to rack up such a hefty bill in such a casual setting.
For dessert, we headed to one of our top spots in the city, Hojoko. We reviewed Hojoko when it opened in 2015, and it remains one of our favorite spots today. A perfect post dinner drink is their frozen pina colada, served with a roasted marshmallow. They usually have one or two other frozen drinks, and also a large selection of cocktails that seem Tiki inspired with interesting Japanese influence. This place always has good music, the bartenders are fun and knowledgeable, and it’s some of the most interesting food and drink in the city. This is our go-to spot for a reason, so if you haven’t been yet, make a point to head there, preferably before the crowd head back to Fenway in April.
Our friends at S3 Boston are organizing a St. Patrick’s themed bar crawl.

Hello 12 Bars Participants,
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.
Check In takes place at the following:
12:00 – 1:20 – Vanderbilt – 105 Water Street
1:30 – 3:00 – Vintage Lounge – 72 Broad Street
If you don’t have tickets yet
We have 12 bars in the Faneuil Hall/Financial District area planned. There is another big crawl from another group that day and we’re planning to visit places not associated with their schedule.
You will receive the entire schedule when you check in on Saturday. 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!
