Hotels: $200+ a night. If you don't want to spend that kind of money, you have to stay outside the city.

Good Food: Boston Beer Works.

Amen. It's the best sports bar I've ever been to hands down. I believe it was rated the top sports bar in America by Sports Illustrated or some magazine. Everytime I go to the game thats where I go. If your caustrophobic I might not recommend it, however, because it gets extremely crowded.

I'm coming down in January (20th) for the Sens-Bruins game. There are 4 of who will be proudly wearing our Sens jerseys in row 5, Loge 20. Everybody try to contain their excitement!!

I do have a few questions that I hope people could help me (us) out with:

1) We are leaving on the Friday (19). It's about a 6-7 hour drive from Ottawa. With Friday night traffic, what time should we try to get into Boston for to avoid the nasty rush hour? We are staying at the Marriot right downtown

2) We're all 26, so the age limit is not a problem. We'll want to hit up some bars/clubs, but I suspect we won't want to go to a bar that has a nasty line-up or is overpacked because we'll have no hook-ups. Anything in Harvard we could check out or in the downtown area that anyone could recommend??

3) I saw a few people recommend places to eat near the stadium. Are they friendly bars, or will we hear the riot act when we come in with our jerseys on?? I assure you we will be wearing them, so honesty would be great for us. We don't start crap like fights or anything like that, but we will get into debates about the teams (all in good taste/fun), so we want to go to a place that will 'embrace' us.

Hey Fellas,

Coming up to Boston from Jan. 4 - Jan. 8 for the Flyers v. B's game and the Wives' Carnival.

I have a question about my tickets. A friend of mine, who works for a company in Boston, gave me some free tickets. However, I can't find the section we're seated in on the 3D viewer.

The tickets read: Level V, Section Board Room, Premium Club Seats.

Anyone have an idea where these are located?

Wearing a visiting team jersey at the Sports Grille on Canal St. won't get you any kind of riot acts. Of course it depends on what type of people are there, but I've been there with people wearing Toronto and Buffalo jerseys and people don't bother them.

Hampton Inn

I've only been to Boston once but we stayed here:

http://hamptoninn.hilton.com/en/hp/h...tyhocn=BOSLAHX

It's not to far from the airport and they have a free shuttle to and from the airport and to the train station. We took the shuttle to the train station and it probably took less than 30 minutes from the station to the Fleet Center / TD Bank North Garden.

It's a nice, clean, simple, modern hotel with reasonable prices. We found 5 different prices for the exact same room at the exact same time (Expedia, Travelocity, Hotels.com... )

Yeah I just realised talking about underage drinking (21 and younger) might be unappropriate...but now, where can I buy ammunition? I hear it's legal if your older than 18.../sarcasm

Oh well...thanks for the replies, I know what to expect on Saturday.

Stay outside the city in the south of Boston, The North shore is no place for tourists, Unless you're way up there. Metro west is just as expensive as Boston itself. As far as lodging goes.

Travel by train, Esspecially if the weather is bad. Boston streets are just paved horse trails from the 18th and 19th century. The Highways from the North and South can be a nightmare, Esspecially in the late afternoon.

Boston has alot of expensive resturants, Do yourself a favor and ignore them, Kelly's Roast beef in Revere or Saugus is a much better alternative and New York Pizza near the in the theater district next to the Subway sandwich shop is another suggestion. No need to waste money, Because in Boston, your gonna need it. Cheap food, is a good thing plus it's alot better than the expensive stuff. As for the sights, Well, all you really need to do is walk around for a few hours and see all of them.

The visiting team's game-day skate is at 11:30. I guess they would arrive an hour before and then leave sometime after 12-12:30 or something. I can ask somebody who's very knowledgable about visiting teams if you want.
