On the website for Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary, the following is said: “The essence of Fenway is its intimacy, a coziness that encourages, even demands, intensity. Fans become family; nicknames flourish.” This could not be more spot on. The vibe in Fenway (even during a Sox Yankees game like we were at) is home-y. The view is incredible no matter where you sit, and on a late summer night there truly is no better place to be
Valerie & Eric’s Drink of Convenience: Coors Light
Ingredients: Mostly water along with a few other things
Cost: $8.00 each
Review: Valerie thought she would be a good wife and grab a couple beers on the way back from her trip to the ladies room. After standing in line for a few minutes, she was finally near the front when she realized the only beer they had in that particular section was Coors Light. And so Coors Light it was. While not the most delicious beer by any measure, the ambiance more than made up for it. Don’t worry…the next round we had Sam Summers!
Wine Prices: Red and white available for $8 or $9 a glass (we weren’t the best researchers here).
Beer Prices: Bud and Coors are $8 each. Sam Summer, New Castle and Guinness also available for $8.75. Really, it depends on where you’re sitting what’s around you.
Other: Rumor has it there’s some place in Fenway where you can get mixed drinks. We’ve never seen it and can’t imagine what kind of prices they would charge for it.
