This weekend pop music heavyweights Justin Timberlake and Jay Z bring their Legends of the Summer tour to Fenway Park for two nights. Tickets for this star-powered tour range from $64.50 to $255 and there are still a handful of seats left (mostly at the upper pricing tier much to the frustration of cash-strapped fans). The artists recently collaborated this year with Jay Z featured on Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” and JT lending his voice to Hov’s single “Holy Grail” from his latest album. Of course, the real Legends of the Summer this year are the Red Sox, who currently lead the AL East by two games, despite last night’s upset in Kansas City. Whether you’re coming to Fenway for a concert or a ballgame, our Brookline hotel is located just a 10-15 minute walk from the park. We have limited rooms available for Justin and Jay Z this weekend and all the remaining Red Sox home games, so book your room today to be steps from the action in a historic Boston bed and breakfast!
September 1 is just a month away which means scores of college students will be coming back to Boston, many of whom will be making the big step of moving into their first apartments as they move off-campus for the first time. It’s a big day in Boston, with moving vans lining the streets of popular student neighborhoods such as Allston and Brighton, and many parents will be in town to help their kids make the move.
If you’re one of the proud parents helping your kids set up their new digs, you’ll probably want a place to sleep for the night after a long day of moving. Our two Boston bed and breakfast locations are conveniently located near several local area colleges and a short drive, walk, or T ride away from many popular student neighborhoods throughout Boston and Brookline. Book your room today!
Boston Comic Con 2013 is coming to the World Seaport Trade Center this weekend on August 3 and 4. In the world of comic fandom, this is A BIG DEAL. Used to be (at least, in the 1980’s—as far back as this Beacon Inn host can recall), if you spent your free time reading comics, you probably also spent school time avoiding getting stuffed into a locker. These days, comic characters are a big part of pop culture.
Beginning in the late 1980s with the release of Tim Burton’s Batman, and snowballing in the early aughts with Hellboy, X-Men, Spiderman, and a number of other Marvel and DC Comics-adapted films, comics went mainstream. Today, if you haven’t seen the Batman movies, you risk being an outcast, but without superpowers.
Boston Comic Con brings hope to Brookline and Boston residents of learning the ins-and-outs of comic cool. If you saw a Batman movie but don’t know what a Hellboy is, this convention is for you, as Hellboy creator Mike Mignola will be there to discuss his work, including work on The Hobbit. Surely, you’ve heard of The Hobbit?
Book a room to stay with us at the Beacon Inn in Brookline for Comic Con 2013, and our front desk hosts will throw in directions to all of the best comic shops in Boston for free. Don’t be the last kid (or adult) on your block to find out what it means to be retconned!
The final game of this week’s Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays series was rained out yesterday giving the Sox a chance to regroup before Monday’s scheduled makeup game. Although the Sox currently lead the standings in the AL East, the Rays are only one game behind. After two losses to the Rays’ excellent pitching staff this week, the Red Sox Nation is hoping for a comeback next week. The Rays plan on pitching either Roberto Hernandez or David Price in the makeup game. Price, who recently returned from 47 days on the disability list, pitched Wednesday’s game that resulted in a 5-1 win for the Rays. If you missed last night’s game due to the rain delay, come out on Monday and stay in one of our Brookline hotels for a chance to see the Sox face the Rays for the rescheduled final game of the series.
