The South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade
Ah. Need a breather to take in some fresh(ish), salty air? It’s nothing compared to the cliffs of Mohr, but if you continue along East Broadway and across the William J. Day Boulevard, you will find yourself on the shores of the glorious Pleasure Bay. Drink it in, lads; it always goes down smooth(ish).
Chuck & Ann’s
Still hungry and want a big ol’ dirt-cheap sub in an old-fashioned mom n’ pop, cash-only joint? Chuck & Ann’s, with its huge, over-stuffed subs and old-school, shiny cash register is sure to win over your heart and stomach alike. 284 Dorchester Ave (617-269-6462)
L. St Tavern
Yah ked, that bah where they filmed Good Will Hunting. It’s a little off the beaten path, but it’s good solid Boston through and through. It’s sure to be packed, but also sure to be worth it. At the very least you can say you breathed the same air as the dynamic Daffleck duo. 658A East 8th St (617-268-4335)
