If you must leave the comfort of your CHR apartment to watch the Patriots, here's a handy list of places to sidle up and catch the big game on Sunday. Where's your favorite sports haunt?
Brighton, Brookline, and Cambridge:
Cityside: 1960 Beacon St, Brighton, MA
TVs as far as the eye can see. A lively place to watch a game.
Parlor Sports: 1 Beacon St, Somerville, MA
Right over the Somerville line and close to Inman Square, Parlor Sports has you completely covered. Completely. There are TVs in the bathroom.
Coolidge Corner Clubhouse: 307A-309 Harvard St, Brookline, MA
Great food and great atmosphere. Get there early! It's a favorite for locals.
Jake and Joe's: 475 Boston Providence Highway (Rte 1 South), Norwood, MA
TVs are literally on every available wall space and a great alternative to the parking wars at Legacy Place Mall in Dedham. Chicken wings are a must here!
Canton Junction: 399 Neponset St, Canton, MA
Great neighborhood restaurant and a stone's throw from Rte 95 makes it easy to get home again. The air hockey table is a bonus.
Waxy O'Connors: 121 Main St, Foxboro, MA
To avoid crowds at Patriot Place Mall during a home game, head to Waxy's as a great substitute. Located right in Foxboro center, you'll feel like you're at the game.
John Harvard's: One Worcester Rd, Framingham, MA
Named after one of our founding fathers, it almost seems wrong to watch the Patriot's anywhere else.
The Chicken Bone: 358 Waverly St, Framingham, MA
Chicken wings and football go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Having TV's at every vantage point helps too.
Union Station: 36 Exchange Terrace, Providence, RI
Owned by the same company as John Harvard's, you can't go wrong with either the atmosphere or the food.
Shula's 347 Grill: 21 Atwells Ave, Providence, RI
Named after the illustrious Don Shula, this place knows everything there is to know about football. Being a Dolphin's fan is definitely NOT required.
Providence's Coal Fired Pizza: 385 Westminster St, Providence, RI
You haven't tasted pizza until it's been coal fired. Four huge screens broadcasting the game are the pepperoni on top of the pie.
