"Occupy Fenway" Coming to Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grill on Boylston Street
A restaurant owned by a former Red Sox player (and present-day TV announcer) is going to be hosting an event loosely based on the team's 2011 collapse as well as an ongoing series of demonstrations in Boston.
According to their Facebook page, Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grill on Boylston Street in the Fenway neighborhood of the city is planning to have an "Occupy Fenway" event at the restaurant tomorrow night (Wednesday, October 19), complete with fans voicing their anger at an open mic, $5 burgers and fries, and Twitter posts from followers being displayed on one of the dining spot's "Screen Monsters." The Facebook page also mentions that no chicken will be allowed--a dig on the controversy over Red Sox players allegedly eating fried chicken and drinking beer in the clubhouse during games. The name of the event comes from Occupy Boston, which is a continuing demonstration in Dewey Square (near South Station) against inequality and corporate greed.
The address for Jerry Remy's in the Fenway neighborhood is: Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grill, 1265 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02215. The phone number is (617) 236-7369. The Facebook page can be found at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jerry-Remys-Sports-Bar-Grill/246447931841
