A Red Sox street party on Yawkey Way
Before each home game, food, music, and more.
So, Youk is history. Tito’s bitter. The Red Sox limped through spring. And still: Fenway Park retains its summer magic, drawing generations of New England families for nine innings of baseball, food, drink, and revelry, and not always in that order. The experience of visiting Fenway, now in its 100th year, has improved as the team has doubled down on its historic, if cramped, stadium. (It’s also become more expensive, of course.) Since the Sox began closing Yawkey Way before each home game, it’s become a street party, with music, steaming sausages, souvenirs, and more.
