THUR 4/19: Fenway Park All-Day Open House

There is cheapness through Thursday on the calendar.

It's one of those nights where Union Square is hopping with The Upper Crust rocking at one club and a rock-paper-scissors tournament at another.

While it's $12, the Rock 'n' Roll Rumble Finals ar at TT's tonight. May the best band win!


THUR 4/19

9am to 7pm
100th Anniversary Open House
All gates at Fenway Park, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston

How many times does one walk and gawk around Fenway without worrying about getting back before the next inning begins?

For the ballpark's 100th anniversary, it's nice to see the Red Sox organization to do something for fans that might not get a chance to buy a ticket to the game.

A hundred plaques and historical markers have been placed in relevant locations for this initiative to call it a "Living Museum". Even if we think changes in the last few years may be corny, consider them as part of the bargain that saved Fenway Park from demolition.

The cool thing is that you should be able to go into places that you wouldn't normally go -- maybe not even on the usual tour.

There will be special displays and presentations throughout the day, and some former Sox players will be signing autographs. (Not sure of the time, but I saw that Oil Can Boyd will be there.)

I think it would be cool to get a good look inside the scoreboard area...

Hey, why wouldn't you go?
