In addition, for those not attending the game but who will be in the Chicago area, you can meet up at the alumni watch party at the Tobacco Road Tap Room.
For those in New York
The BC Alumni Association of New York has two "BC bars" in Manhattan, where each week fans and alumni will gather to watch the Eagles. Joshua Tree, the long-standing home of BC Alumni in New York, continues to host with special BC menus, BC decorations all over the bar, playing the fight song for every TD, and the staff all wear BC shirts. Dewey's Pub has also opened their doors to BC fans and are really rolling out the red carpet. Most importantly, there will be free 30 minutes of Bud Light open bar prior to every kickoff. They will also be serving the Lower Dining Hall Steak and Cheese AND the New England Classic, as well as putting out the "ALS Wing Bucket Challenge" (a bucket of wings and Bud Light with $5 going to ALS charity). There will be BC themed cocktails, BC shirts for staff, and BC music (because “For Boston” is the most beautiful song in the world and needs to be shared). So get out to Dewey’s and Joshua Tree, meet some new friends, support a good cause, and you CSOM grads may even be able to expand your LinkedIn networks.
