American Craft Beer Fest May 30-31

Boston is hosting it’s 7th annual American Craft Beer Fest May 30 and 31. With over 140 breweries and more than 640 beers, there will be something for everyone’s taste. People from all over the world, an expected 15,000, will flock to the Seaport World Trade Center to get in on the action. You can purchase a ticket for around $50 for one of the three sessions, May 30 6pm - 9:30pm, May 31 1pm - 4pm, or May 31 6pm - 9pm. While your ticket provides admission, a cup, and all the beer you can drink, you do have to purchase food from the many vendors set up at the festival. If you don’t want to wait in line at the vendors, you can follow in the footsteps of beer festival attendees from around the world and create a pretzel necklace. Not only are the pretzel necklaces a wardrobe staple for Beer Fest, they are an excellent way to make sure you are able to try all of the beer options! Maybe not all, but munching between 2oz servings will definitely help your beer consumption stamina. You can purchase tickets through Eventbright, keep in mind that all ticket sales are final. After you purchase you experience all that American Craft Beers have to offer, head back to Clarendon Square to relax, recoup, and get ready to see even more of Boston!

Where can I go to see live comedy in Boston?

If you are in the mood to laugh tonight, Boston has a great selection of comedy clubs and shows for you to choose from. Each club is well located, and is a great way to relax after a long day walking around and enjoying the city. The best way to experience a comedy show is with a cold glass of beer in hand, and luckily all of our features have bars on site.

Near the North End the infamous Improv Asylum will have you in stitches. Their main stage show is a little bit sketch comedy, and a little bit improv that includes suggestions from the audience. They also have specialty shows that change frequently. One that is currently playing Friday nights at midnight is a take on the popular game Cards Against Humanity.

If you are interested in being part of the show, you can also check out the improv murder mystery Shear Madness, in the Theater District. Perfect for a fun filled night after a day of walking the Freedom Trail, the folks at Shear Madness incorporate the audience into the show. No two shows are ever the same!

If you would rather sit back and enjoy the ride, make sure to stop by Dicks Doherty’s Beantown Comedy Den, located on the waterfront about ten minutes walking from the Aquarium. Beantown caters to some of the local talent, as well as many of the up and coming comics from around the country.

You can find more information, including show times, and ticket prices on each of their websites.
