Home / The Lit Drop /


As their candidates sweat it out under the WBZ studio lights on Wednesday night, mayoral campaign supporters will be hitting bars in the Allston/Brighton and Dorchester areas.

Here’s where the debate watch parties are going to be, according to the campaigns:

Mayor Thomas Menino’s camp will be at the Green Briar Restaurant and Pub at 304 Washington St. Here’s the Yelp profile.

City Councillor At-Large Sam Yoon’s people will be at the Boyne at 458 Western Ave., about a mile away. No happy hours or coat check, though, according to Yelp. Rough.

The main debate watch party for City Councillor At-Large Michael Flaherty's campaign will be at the Stockyard, at 135 Market St. Some of Flaherty’s folks, including his brother John, will also be the Blarney Stone on 1509 Dorchester Ave. (Yelp profile here.)

We've got an email into Kevin McCrea's campaign where they'll be hanging out and will post it here when we receive an answer.

Also, we hope the various campaign workers and volunteers will refrain from crashing one another’s parties and starting food fights. At least not until the Lit Drop is given a head's up and can show up with a video camera.

The debate starts at 7 p.m. It will be rebroadcast on WBZ's sister station, TV38, on Thursday night.

EDIT: Updated to add second Flaherty location.
