L Street Tavern
When it comes to watching sports, Boston fans can be pretty particular with tradition (and enthusiastic for that matter). Some people have to wear their favorite jersey, even if it’s covered in filth. Others have to get in every word of the pre-game report while sipping on their favorite beer. If you’re one of those Boston sports buffs who likes to hear the crowds cheer, and the sound of the ball hitting the bat when Big Papi makes that homerun, L Street Tavern turns off the music and turns the TVs up anytime there’s a game on. Home of the famous Boston flick, Good Will Hunting, L Street is full of Southie history and some of the biggest sports fans in the area. Head on down for a “Sunday Funday” for your favorite game, and enjoy cheap drinks, good friends and good times! 195 L Street, 617-268-4335.
