Shipping Up to Boston, MA

Someone recently asked me about Boston, MA. What is there to do there? Is it a good city to visit? When visiting Boston two years ago, I discovered that it houses neighborhoods with distinct character, historic shipyards, top educational institutes, the beloved Red Sox, and big-city entertainment. With history and culture around every bend, skyscrapers nestled next to historic hotels, and modern marketplaces lining antique cobblestone streets, Boston is a vibrant, thriving city with adventures for all ages. Unfortunately, I can’t address many of those beautiful sights or locations around Boston because I found McGreevy’s Pub, home of the Dropkick Murphys and all that quaint historic, cultural stuff was replaced by an excessively drunken day and night in the heart of Boston. At only 1200 steps from Fenway Park and the Boston House of Blues, McGreevy’s 3rd Base Saloon is a traditional Irish Pub dedicated to Boston sports, Boston history, and great Boston music. It’s known as America’s first sports bar, winner of Boston’s best sport bar many times over, home of the Dropkick Murphys, and the best bar in Boston to kick back and enjoy a pint.

In 1894,”Nuf Ced” McGreevy opened his 3rd Base Saloon in Boston and it became the place to be for ballplayers, politicians, gamblers, and die-hard fans known as the “Royal Rooters”. “Nuf Ced” was “King of the Rooters” and 3rd Base was the center of the sporting world. It was America’s first baseball museum, with every inch of wall space decorated with historic pictures and memorabilia. The light fixtures were made from bats used by Red Sox stars and the painted portrait of McGreevy that hung above the bar looked down upon customers. “Nuf Ced” and his Rooters cheered on the Red Sox singing the fight song “Tessie” for their first World Series win in 1903 and continuing the tradition to date. There’s no doubt “McGreevy’s” was the birthplace of “Red Sox Nation”.

Today, history repeats itself in a new golden age for Red Sox fans. In 2004, the Dropkick Murphys revived the ghost of McGreevy by singing his name in their revival of the Sox fight song “Tessie”. Performing inside Fenway and bringing good luck with dramatic wins every time they played, the Dropkicks carried on the “Royal Rooter” tradition as they cheered on the Sox to their first world title since 1918.

In 2008, Dropkick Murphy leader Ken Casey joined forces with film producer and baseball historian Peter Nash to officially re-establish and re-open McGreevy’s 3rd Base Saloon adding the finishing touches of baseball bat light fixtures, historic pictures and memorabilia, and McGreevy’s picture above the bar.

When I visited in 2009, McGreevy’s was a place where players and fans could go to eat, drink, and blow off some steam after a big win or loss. It’s a place where every picture on the wall tells a story about Boston’s baseball legacy and the characters who defined an era.

The Dropkicks played in the background while I took a swing at finishing McGreevy’s Big-Mouth Beckett Burger. 25 ounces of 100% beef along with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and cheddar cheese make a total burger weighing 1 pound, 9 ounces. The challenge is to finish this home-plate sized burger and receive a shirt announcing that you beat this monster of a meal. In fact, even if the burger beats you, you’ll still receive a T-shirt announcing your defeat. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Josh Beckett Foundation and I love a good do or die situation so I started swinging for the fences at my chance to prove my massive appetite. The problem with eating such a large meal is that you need large drinks to wash it down. Sitting in an Irish pub and drinking soda would be completely unacceptable; the only appropriate drunk, and my chosen poison, was Guinness. Four glasses later and several trips to the bathroom, I’d completed my first journey at McGreevy’s. An empty plate never looked so good!

The bartender, along with a growing number of bystanders, stood in awe of my accomplishment and my $30 meal turned into a full night of non-stop, free drinks from around the pub. Whispers of a 120 pound woman finishing McGreevy’s Big-Mouth Beckett Burger spread like wildfire and even people in the street came into the pub to buy me a pint.

Although I have the appetite of a sumo wrestler and I’m a proud Cape Bretoner, even I have a limit when it comes to taken’ ’em down, but I was going out in style.

I stood up to finally walk out of the pub when Kiss Me I’m Sh*tfaced filled the air louder than the previous songs. I took it as a sign and began my performance!

Standing in a filled McGreevy’s with patrons that now knew my name and shared a drink with me, I started singing along with the lyrics:

I play in a band, we’re the best in the land
We’re big in both Chelsea and France… (I emphasized France as if I were an opera singer and grabbed the attention of the few drinkers that didn’t hear me begin)
I play one mean guitar and then score at the bar
There’s a line of chicks waiting for their chance
So come on now honey, I’ll make you feel pretty (while gliding my hands, not so gracefully, along my side and holding back my laugh)
These other gals mean nothing to me
Let’s finish these drinks and be gone for the night (I grabbed my drink with only the foam left and took a head shaking swig)
‘Cause I’m more than a handful, you’ll see

(And then the true singer come out in me and I yelled as loud as I could)

So kiss me, I’m s…faced (I slammed my hand down on the bar)
I’m soaked, I’m soiled and brown
in the trousers, she kissed me (I pointed to unacceptable areas) 
And I only bought her one round

What I think were cheers of encouragement, but they very well could have been cheers of what appeared to be a finish, the entire pub joined me in finishing the song.

…But just give me a chance, ’cause deep down inside
I swear I got a big heart of gold
I’m a monogamous man, no more one night stands
Come on, honey, let me take you home…

The end of the song was a moment I’ll never forget. No one could knock me down at that “pint”. Men and woman smiled and shook my hand, while offering to buy me more rounds, but I’d had enough, I’d filled my boots, and it was time to take my leave.

As I was homeward bound, I didn’t feel a hint of shame or embarrassment at my freedom of expression. I had experienced the heart of Boston and I was a hero from the past, even if it was only in my eyes.

Needless to say, the next day was not fun and I never left my hotel room. I called for room service and booked an additional night. I felt like I had been buried alive on a far away coast but I loved my night in the streets of Boston! If you’re looking to pass time in the city just head on in to McGreevy’s; I’m sure they will show you what Boston has to offer.

I am really enjoying reading your blog as it is giving me lots of ideas for where I would go and what I might do. Have you ever visited New Zealand?

        Some of my fav. things to do (so far):
        -Check out a game in Fenway park (if there’s a game; otherwise, take a tour).
        -Museum of Modern Art.
        I-nstitute of Contemporary Art (ICA) by the water front & catch a drink or meal at Sam’s (http://samsatlouis.com/menu/afternoon), over looking the waterfront.
        -walk along Freedom Trail, and duck into any Irish bar along the way for a pint & chowder.
        -take Duck Boat tour. It looks cheesy but surprisingly entertaining.
        -Public Garden
        -Faneul Hall and surrounding area (must-do for first timer).

    Highlights were watermelon beer at Boston Beer Works on Yawkey across from Fenway, and chasing batting practice homers at the parking lot behind the Green Monster.
    And drinking ourselves silly, with a side trip to Harvard.
    Big fun!

They loved observing animals in Costa Rica (though waiting for the sloth to move got a bit tiresome) and especially loved riding in a hot air balloon in Cappadocia, Turkey. Your daughter will share your sense of curiosity and adventuresome spirit and your travels will be all the richer because of it.

    • Working and traveling have never been an issue for me as a teacher but it’s been a new challenge since I met my husband; his career doesn’t offer the same vacation time opportunities. We always make the best of it though and even zip off for quick weekend adventures to new locations. A few months ago, we hopped on a plane for Alaska and made a short trip out of a long weekend. In November, Vegas and the Grand Canyon are in our sights and God only knows what Christmas will hold. 🙂

      I love your “header” picture with the pint of beer and the anchor tattoo! My brother would be inspired. Is it you?

    • Cindy,

      I know I’m over emotional because I’m pregnant but your kindness has brought me to tears.

      I have a large appetite for food as well as travel and adventure. McGreevy’s gave me all of that in one little package. I hope that others can find a place where they feel so free that they are liberated enough to let their spirit show.

      Becoming a mother has already been my greatest accomplishment and has brought me more happiness than I ever imagined possible. Seeing my precious daughter for the first time on ultrasound was the most beautiful image I’ve experienced, and feeling the flutters in my stomach each time she moves or kicks brings on a smile that lasts all day. Creating her room with my husband has, yet again, confirmed my deep love and respect that I have for him. He has given everything he has into creating something beautiful for her and there are no words to express how blessed I am to have him in my life. I am living in my “happily ever after”.

      Your site, http://www.cindydeluz.com, Cindy DeLuz Mixed Media Artist, is reflective of my greatest feelings and emotions. The “Getaways” section is like you’ve read my mind and put it to paper. You have a “LOVE IN LAGUNA BEACH” piece that is a perfect fit for my husband and I and our journey in Laguna Hills. We consciously thought about if we could live anywhere in the world, where would it be. We choose Laguna Hills as our dream location and it was here that our love created our precious baby girl that is four months shy of being born. Countless evenings and weekends are spend strolling along Laguna beach
      dreaming of our future together. Your FISHERMAN’S WHARF piece is reminiscent of my childhood days growing up with a fisherman grandfather and living in a fishing community. If any one person has changed my life for the better, it would be my grandfather. He is strong, supportive, loving, giving, and more understanding than Jesus himself. He’d give everything, and often has, to make us happy and bring joy into our lives. Anyway that has ever been graced with his presence sees his beautiful spirit and is a better person for knowing him. Your SUNDAY ON THE BAY piece shows my husband and I before we moved to California. He taught me how to sail and showed me the ocean from a different perspective. It was while sailing that I learned of his patience and relaxed demeanor and realized that I was falling in love with the man of my dreams. Your YOUNG AT HEART pieces are the personification of my mother. She has taught us how to remain young and enjoy the simple things in life. I will forever be grateful to her for instilling that in me. Your HOLIDAYS pieces are a step back into my past in eastern Canada filled with snow, family-made snowmen, decorating, and Santa Clause. But it is your ROYAL WINGS – LIVE YOUR DREAMS that combines everything that has shaped my life. If your offer stands for a gift print, I choose that one! I keep returning for another look and a reminder of the amazing times that are to come with my daughter and my husband. We’re creating a family that will always live our dreams.

      P.S. I’ve reached over 850 followers and the number is rising thanks to wonderful believers like yourself.

      Thanks for the encouragement and a link to one of the most beautiful sites I’ve ever seen.

      May your days be filled with happiness and laughter.

There’s so many different things to see + do in Boston in addition to McGreevy’s – though none might be as much fun 😉 There are great museums (Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Institute of Contemporary Art [fantastic new building on the waterfront], Children’s Museum, Science Museum, etc.; beautiful beaches both north (Cape Ann) and south (Cape Cod) of the city; wonderful architecture (Back Bay, Beacon Hill); historical sites (Fanueil Hall, Freedom Trail); Boston Garden (swan boats) and Boston Common; shopping (Newbury Street, Harvard Square, Charles Street); parks (Arnold Arboretum, Charles River esplanade); art galleries, theatre and live music and of course sports (Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins). Just a few suggestions.

      Although my husband was not-so-secretly hoping for a son, he has risen to the occasion of having a daughter and she is not even born yet. He spends countless hours painting and decorating her room and preparing for her arrival. It’s easy to see the joy on his face when he walks into her nursery.

        It’s funny how most of us have our secret and not-so-secret gender preferences prior to the great gender reveal, but once the baby arrives, you can’t imagine your family any other way. My wife and I originally hoped for a daughter but quickly grew enthusiastic about our baby boy when we found out he was a he.
