Happy Opening Day to all the Sox fans out there! We can officially celebrate spring knowing that America's favorite pastime is back in action. Certainly you've heard about all the updates to Fenway Park to get ready for the season; including new menu items and a stronger Pesky Pole. But if you didn't get a chance to buy tickets to the 'home open-ah', we've got other ways for you to join in on the fun. Back again this week, City Tap House Boston and Cask 'n Flagon are bringing you their finest franks and bodacious beers to cheers to the Red Sox Opening Day!
City Tap House Boston
City Tap House is about to experience what baseball season in Boston is all about, and they are eagerly on deck. Today, April 3, Fort Point’s new beer paradise will celebrate their first Opening Day as Bostonians by embracing a time-honored tradition at America’s favorite ballpark, the infamous Fenway Frank! Paired with a Narragansett Tall Boy, City Tap’s spin on the old-fashioned treat takes a Kayem Fenway Frank and loads it up with chili and cheese inside a New England-style split-top hot dog roll, served with housemade chips and pickles. The beer-hot dog duo will be available all day for only $8.
It is said that during the 2013 World Series, Red Sox Nation ate 15,000 hot dogs per game so City Tap urges baseball and frank aficionados that when in Boston, do as the Bostonians! The 117th Opening Day game will be on in all its glory on City Tap’s 11 HDTVs, including three mammoth screens that line the bar’s 60 tap lines. We can ensure you won't miss a single pitch waiting for your new favorite frank!
Cask 'n Flagon
Since 1969, Cask ‘n Flagon has been baseball fans go-to spot for Sox revelry being just steps from Fenway Park. Literally, you couldn't be any closer unless you had an actual ticket into the game! With its walls lined in black and white prints of the most legendary players throughout the decades, it is a haven for Boston’s most loyal sports fans. To mark the start of the 2017 season, The Cask will open its doors early at 8am and shake up a duo of themed cocktails while WEEI’s Glenn Ordway, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria broadcast live from 10am-1pm. You won't want to miss these festivities!
Created by Cask’s resident cocktail man Eric Hecht, the Beamed with a Ball sees an oversized ice ball made with orange juice and grenadine that is drenched in Jim Beam and topped with Cointreau at $11 while the Green Monstah is a bright concoction of Cruzan citrus rum, fresh lemon juice, Midori and peach liqueur at $9.95. We appreciate the creativity of the Beamed with a Ball cocktail but as someone who has been struck with a foul ball at a minor league game before, we also feel the pain associated with it! Haha! The Cask also will screen the game in all its Opening Day glory on over 60 HDTVs. Get there early, the line is usually around the block!
Join us today in celebrating Opening Day and devour the details of a perfect start to the Red Sox 2017 season. Let's play ball!
