The table is set for our largest outing to date! We're storming Boston on September 15th, and the pre-game location has now been locked up.
Finding a spot in Boston was no easy task. There are no shortage of awesome bars and restaurants just outside the park, but most of them are already packed out with Sox fans, or were just too small.
We have 1,600 tickets to the game, and while they can't fit everyone, Kings on Dalton Street has signed on to be our home for the pre-game. They have space for about 600.
Kings is located just .6 miles from Fenway. We'll plan to get there around noon, then parade to the ballpark around 3. The game that day is at 4:05.
Yes, we know that a capacity of 600 isn't close to the number of tickets sold, but we've learned over the years that not everyone hits the pre-game party. Especially those who will be taking the bus, or are commuting from their homes in New England the day of the game. Show up early, and you should be good good. We'll work on an overflow spot if we hit capacity at Kings.

Little did we know, but happy hour is banned in Boston, so there is little they can do about exclusive drink specials. Supposedly you need to run a special for a full month in order for a deal to be legal, so while we typically work out a game day special for just our crew, that won't be possible this time. They did promise to put some food specials on the menu for the day, and their drink prices overall are reasonable either way.
Try your best to make it over for the pre-game. It's always a fun way to get the day started with hundreds of like minded Mets fans. This is the largest outing yet, and we hope the parade to Fenway tops San Diego. Arizona and Toronto were close, but nothing has tipped the scales yet like SD.
It's been a rough season for Mets fans, but we're looking forward to cheering with you in the intimate confines of Fenway Park. One thing will be unanimous in the building, we all hate the Yankees.
Come out to our tailgate party on June 18th before the Mets take on the Marlins at Citi Field. The game starts at 4:10pm which is perfect for a pre-game meet up. Swing by to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down a couple cold ones.
