    Best Places to Watch the World Series

    If you don’t have a ticket to the World Series, there are plenty of places to watch the games in the city and the suburbs to capture all the excitement.

    “I would love to be at the game but I hear the tickets are like mega bucks,” said Connie Cascio of Burlington.

    The NBC10 Boston web team has put together the best places to watch the game if you’re not one of the lucky ones to score a game ticket.

    For example, if you want to be near all the action at Fenway, slide on over to Baseball Tavern on Boylston Street, Cask ‘n’Flagon on Brookline Avenue or Game On on Landsdowne Street.

    All are just steps away from the ballpark, and a crowded bar or restaurant is what some fans live for.

    “You play off the energy of other people,” said Meredith Schwenk of Waltham. “You have the camaraderie with the people around you.”

    If you don’t want to fight the traffic and the crowds in Boston, there are plenty of hotspots in the suburbs.

    From Home Plate Bay Street Grill in Taunton, to the Scoreboard in Woburn, to Jake n JOES in Waltham where there are some forty televisions.

    “I think it’s going to be very electric here,” said Brandon Finnen, manager of Jake n JOES.

    In Newton, at Buff’s Pub, the staff says the 8 televisions--and the neighborhood feel--make it the perfect place to catch all the action.

    “It’s a lot of locals,” said Dave Morrissey, the bar manager. “It’s a small bar, it’s got a nice little vibe to it, everyone kind of knows each other, it’s got that kind of Cheers feel to it.”

    For many fans, though, the best place to watch will be right at home.

    “I will probably watch it on my couch in my pj’s,” said Stephanie Ackerman of Shewsbury.
