Ultimate Boston College Bar Tournament: (5) The Avenue Vs. (12) Harry's Bar and Grille

First round competition continues today with the 5 vs.12 matchup between The Avenue and Harry's Bar and Grille. Voting is still open in the carnage that has become the Cityside vs Great Scott Fiasco. The rest of the tournament bracket is here.

#5 The Avenue

A hidden gem on Comm. Ave., The Avenue is a great place for cheap eats and drinks. Located on the B line, it's very easily accessible for those of us who don't have a car or can't drive home at the end of the night. Once a sister bar of Roggie's, The Avenue has a great variety of dollar drafts, make excellent car bombs and have great food specials. Finding cheap beers is always a key in crowning a great college bar, and dollar drafts are nearly unheard of nowadays. Many of my favorite sports memories happened at The Avenue, including the 2007 ALCS when they actually let my friends stay and watch the end of the game even though last call had happened. One of the negatives has to be the lack of seating, which on busy nights is very hard to come by. Be prepared to stand in a very packed bar. On really busy days expect to wait outside to get in, which on a cold January night can be brutal.  While researching the bar I was horrified to find out that The Avenue closed in May, but fear not they will be reopening soon under new ownership.

#12 Harry's Bar and Grille

This is a bar that may not be well known for many BC students, because on the outside it just looks like a generic townie bar on the B Line in Allston. But once you step inside you notice that Harry's is a fantastic place to watch a game and get a bite to eat. The best part of Harry's is that it's not a well known bar. For some of us that hate waiting for a beer and can't stand pushy crowds, Harry's Bar & Grille is the place to go. During BC's last big run in the NCAA Tournament, I went with about 20 friends and actually got a table to watch the game on one of their big screen TVs. I doubt you would be able to find seating at a place like Cityside or Roggies on important BC nights like that. Another positive is won't find noisy DJs, karaoke nights or college promotions to attract the typical BC student. However, what you will find is a great neighborhood bar that can be enjoyed by an Eagle of any age.

Alright guys, time to vote. Play nice this time.
