As soon as David Ortiz hit that grand slam Sunday, we knew it would be an intense week for Red Sox Nation.
The Sox are set to play the Tigers again Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and you may want to watch the game out in public with a live crowd one (or all) of those nights. Here are a few suggestions, as well as some New England-themed foods they offer to keep you in the Boston spirit.
On the Bone Steakhouse: Have a big appetite when watching baseball? Head over to On the Bone and watch the game while you devour some New England Crab Cakes or Maine Crab and Avocado Cocktail. Those of you who recall the "Cowboy Up" slogan from that historic 2004 World Series season may want to try their Cowboy Steak -- a 24-ounce ribeye. Not quite that much of an appetite? Then try the Baked Boston Scrod.
Grassfields: Can't go wrong with a classic. Not only can you watch the game at the bar, you can also enjoy their Native Sea Scallops dinner or their Lobster Pie.
Palmers: Down the street in the center of downtown, you can hop into Palmers and watch the game on their TVs in the tavern while you enjoy some of their New England Clam Chowder and a Lobster BLT.
Dylan's: Also downtown is a place you may have watched a few games already, Dylan's. Enjoy the Sox game in their relaxed sports pub atmosphere with some Rhode Island Calamari, some Black Angus Meatloaf or a Steak Tips/Lobster Pie Combo Dinner.
Park Street Pub: And speaking of local sports pubs, we can't forget Park Street Pub. Their menu is small, but they do offer Baked Mac and Cheese, which is perfect for a cool autumn night in New England.
Wherever you watch the Sox this week, have fun and be safe.
