We won't be making it to Vibes due to the fact that we are saving for our wedding in October but had already planned this trip before setting the date. Just wondered if I would get to meet anyboardie/ I'm sure some of you are from Boston and would have good restaurant reccomendations. Probably staying in Quincy to make use of my marriott discount and taking the (T train?) downtown so we can have some drinks on the boat.

After party spots?
Also, couldn't find out what time the train or buses stop running back to Quincy. Don't want to get stuck with a $50 cab ride at 2AM

Get some sketties on the north end! You really won't find a bad restuarant over there. Overpriced maybe, but I've never had bad food. I like the Frutti di Mare at Maurizios. Clamgasm!

Last trips on the Red Line (and most of the T) are between 12-1am usually. So I'd expect to take a cab if you're back that late.

So, I managed to get a great deal at the Renasaince property a block away from the pier but it's only available Friday night. Hoping that once we are checking in I can extend my stay through the next night. Would be soooooo clutch.

Across from the main stop in Quincy is a Home Depot that has a Duckin Donuts. Quincy and going to Boston and enjoying nightlife on the cheap is like dipping pizza in melted ice cream in my opinion. Between cabs and dealing with red line (train) routes it's just a mess to save a few (debatable) pennies. If your plans are still open look at hotels next to the Fleet Center. I stayed at a real shithole for small money and it was within crawling distance of everything important=downtown bars, the North End..... If you have to stay in Quincy at least sneak over the line on 203/Gallivan Blvd and check out the Irish bar featured on the Anthony Bourdain show, it and every place on that corner serve excellent food for small money.

I was wondering the same thing though my discount through marriott is substantial. The room I am paying $69 plus parking for on Friday is $349 Saturday plus extra for parking. Especially given that we might be out late on Saturday it might be worth paying a little extra to stay close by. Really hoping they can push us through at the same place but not relying on it.

When I saw the size of the boat on the website I was a little worried myself. I'm an out of towner so we'll probably hang out on the railing if possible and enjoy the sights along with the sounds.

Not Eire...rather EPIC! The place rocks...plus the pizza sub shop close to it has incredible lunch deals if you pay in cash.

Thumbs up for knowing a good neighborhood...

Boston and would have good restaurant reccomendations.


In Boston, the Black Rose, I have yet to take any family or friends to Boston without dining there. Excellent food, above par service and all the fresh off the boat Irish folks talk in that cool accent. If you like clam chowder, it offers one of my top 2 in the country for the best. Also, it's cheap at located right next to all the nightlife on State st.....also check out the Couch and couple blocks away for groovy nightlife....and do the epic pub crawl.

After 7 in a row at work I get to do some disc golfing then see Rusted Root again for only $2 on Thursday then hit the road for Boston Friday morning. Going to be a busy week but getting really pumped for it. :bliss:

I've tipped more than a couple in there (grew up in Dot) One of my buddies was a regular there for years. For our Thurs. golf routine we'd hit Gerard's (just around the corner) for breakfast before and then the Erie afterward for the corned beef sandwich.


FYI the Irish bakery across the street is killer
