Fight or Beer Flight? How bout both!

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

Don’t Fight for a Table-Reserve One with Boston’s.

That money belt tho. Check it out HERE.

Join Boston’s Arena District on Saturday, August 26 for the event everyone will be talking about, the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight! Boston’s is pre-selling bar tables for $100 and bar seats for $25. They are only selling tickets in the bar for the number of seats that they have, so space is limited. By reserving now, you can avoid fighting for a table or fighting the crowds as Boston’s will be closed to the general public at 8pm and reopening at 8:30 for only those who have reserved their table/bar stools.

Beer Flight Me!

New eatery in the Arena District will feature burgers and brews

Half Pint Columbus is coming to 415 Front St. on the ground floor of one of the Arena Crossing apartment buildings next to R Bar.

I haven’t yet been able to talk to its owner/operators, but hiring has begun and work is underway on the space.

A Craigslist advertisement links it to the Pint Room, which opened in the Shoppes at River Ridge in Dublin five years ago.

The company since has expanded to Littleton, Colorado, as the Pint Room and added a restaurant in Marysville under the Half Pint name.

The Arena District spot will have a chef-driven menu of gourmet burgers and 60 taps for craft beer, according to the posting. While that’s a lot of beer, it’s still well short of the 101 on tap at the original Pint Room.

Maybe that’s why it’s called the Half Pint?
