There are few better drinking days in Boston than Marathon Monday, which falls on April 15 in 2019. Lots of people citywide take the day off from work to day-drink along the race route and cheer on the thousands of people who’ve endured months of intense training to prepare their bodies for the 26.2-mile grind.
Some people are lucky enough to have a friend who lives along the race route. Great: Drink in the backyard, grill various meats, and enjoy. For those who aren’t so lucky, there are a number of excellent watering holes lining the route. Sink some pints, venture to the route, cheer like hell, repeat.
Here are some of the best and most convenient places to drink on Marathon Monday. (Note: Pick a side of the street and stick to it; crossing back and forth over the race route is a pain — but not impossible.)
