Yup...a buddy and I already booked our flight and reserved a room at the Renaissance Hotel for that Monday night....it's practically in the Gillette Stadium parking lot, but is about $500 for a room on game night. And we are still in "sticker shock" at the prices on StubHub, so we haven't yet purchased our tickets.....we'll hopefully do that this weekend.

I'm sure there will be a gathering of Texans fans on Saturday or Sunday before the game.. We'll be staying in downtown Boston Sat/Sun night, but will be hanging around Patriot Place near Gillette Stadium on game day. Hopefully we'll meet other Texans fans in downtown Boston on Saturday night.

.I'm going to watch this forum to see...sure there will be more people planning trips to Boston in the coming weeks.

EFF the Patriots!!! I had no problem with them until the played the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII here in Houston. Their fans actually turned out to be extreme asshats!!! So much so that I found myself pulling for the Carolina Panthers!!!

EFF a bunch of Patriots!!!!

So we need to find things to do Saturday and Sunday. Would you recommend a particular hotel downtown? We would like to go pub crawling Sat and Sun night, so is downtown the best place to stay? Or is there a better place for that sort of activity? Keep in mind that we'll be on foot and hailing cabs the whole trip!

Downtown is a great area. Cabs and subways are the way to go out here, so thats a great idea. Subways stop at 1am and getting a cab at 2am can be a pain, so just keep that in mind haha.

There are a lot of great hotels on the harbor that are really nice and convenient to a lot of spots. There are also some nice hotels (Parker house for instance) on the freedom trail, which will give you access to more of the "historic" type boston bars. Then theres places like The Liberty Hotel which is an awesome hotel and also has an awesome bar right inside.

I just purchased my flight to Boston. Can't wait!!! Well, I can wait since it will be freaking cold in December.

I will be there from Saturday until Tuesday morning. I am opening to some TexansTalk pub crawls on Saturday and Sunday.

GTexan- What are some good seafood restaurants? Is there a certain area that the young hip professionals hang? I would like to check out the "dressed up" bar scene on Saturday night.

I've got a friend who is a seafood buyer for a lot of the restaurants downtown. I'll ask him who he recommends and get back to you on it.

As for the dressed up bar scene, the historic parts of downtown and around the financial areas are probably a good bet. There are some really nice bars over there.

Ive heard this place is nice: http://drinkfortpoint.com/

Liberty is also awesome. http://www.libertyhotel.com/food_and_drink/liberty_bar.html

Also the prudential/newbury area is really nice (lots of upscale spits around Newbury st) and the beacon hill area

4 of us will be going as well. None have ever been to Boston so we're soaking all this in. Looks like everyone will be all over the place but if we could settle on a place before the game that would be cool. Do they tailgate there or is it more like an entertainment/ complex area people go to (similar to New Orleans) before the game? I'm going post something on the Pats' message board, you usually get good feedback that way. GO TEXANS!

Two of us are going and we're Boston virgins as well. My understanding is that they do tailgate, but there are several bars in Patriot Place that we could all meet up at if preferred. Please do post on here any information you find on tailgating, etc. I don't know if they do or not or how welcoming they are of away fans tailgating.....need to do more research! Really looking forward to being in Gillette on Monday night (minus the cold weather, of course)

I too am a virgin visiting Boston for the first time, and will be attending the game. I would like if all of us would meet in one spot. Take over a bar or something, and show out Texans our support! Anyone know if any of the players will be hanging out somewhere or where they will be staying? Maybe we can pay them a visit! I'm just SUPER excited about this game......can't wait!

There are 4 of us going to Boston for MNF!! Just booked a inexpensive hotel within walking distance to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market. The hotel is Harborside Inn. The queen room we got is very small, but....your not hardly in your room when traveling, so this one worked out for us. Would love to meet up with some Texan fans and do a pub crawl Sat and Sun nights!! We could all possibly meet up at Faneuil Hall Sat night or Sunday or both?? Many pubs around the area within walking distance. Have read about meeting up at 'CBS Scene' at Gillette Monday, so we will plan on going as well to hook up with Texan fans. Only issue is transportation to Gillette. I know that there is a train that runs on gameday, roundtrip for 15 bucks. It gets there at 7:40pm and returns 30 minutes after the game is over. We wanted to arrive a little earlier to Gillette and have a few drinks before heading to game. Any suggestions on transportation to Gillette??? I am part of "Blue 242" Tailgaters in the Blue lot!!!

My wife and I are traveling up to the game as well. We are actually flying into Providence as it is much closer to Gillette Stadium than Boston is. Its only a 20 min drive to the stadium. We are flying on Southwest, fares are pretty cheap. We just booked a hotel in Providence for like 60 bucks a night. Finally got tickets to the game, we are in section 236 Row 2... From what I read on the Texans website, they will be wearing their white jerseys with the deep steel blue pants.. Anyone tailgating?? We flew up for Jets/Texans game earlier this season and tailgating the Texans fans put on was amazing compared to the Jets fans...

We are staying close to PVD airport because we arrive so late on Sunday Night and leave early early on Tuesday morning.

We got our tix from a ticket broker in Boston, they had a better selection than stubhub for about the same prices.

Everyone without a room booked or a room booked outside of downtown Boston, omni hotels are having a deal this weekend only. You can book a room right smack in the middle of downtown at the omni Parker house hotel for only $99 a night using corporate code "CYBER". There are two subway stations nearby and very close to all the historic bars and right across the street from the state house. Also, this is the birth place of Boston cream pie

Thank you, just booked a room for Friday-Tuesday. Got my game tickets ordered too.

How many other people are doing the Bowl Bus thing? I'd like to know how many other Texans fans will be on the ride before I order... I didn't like riding the blue line in Chicago since I was one of 2 Texans fans on the train for about an hour.

From the facebook group and other sources it seems there's quite a few ppl goin on it. I'm still debating taking it or just driving my vehicle to the stadium. I've researched and have counted out the train that runs directly to Gillette. Yes its only 15 bucks but it only gets you there right before the game and gotta leave right after. Also who has any ideas for what we should do. I was thinking about one of the many brewery tours, maybe a picture with the Paul revere statue with a sign saying "the Texans are coming".

Well I called Bowl Bus to ask them a question and during our conversation the rep mentioned having to get an extra bus b/c of bookings by Texans fans...guessing it's quite a few. It gets you there 3.5 hours before kickoff, has music, bring alcohol aboard and bathrooms??!!! Can't beat that!

Fun fact: It was just announced that Boston's SantaCon will be Saturday, December 8th....so there will be a lot of drunk people in Santa and elf costumes crawling the pubs on that night in downtown Boston.

I went to the Texans/Bengals (regular season) game last year and it happened to be the weekend of Cincinatti's SantaCon. Was a lot of fun, actually.

Please note. The blog post has been updated with changes to the brewery tour plans + adding Saturday SantaCon activities. If you are going to SantaCon, you are supposed to be wearing something head to toe festive. They have Santa suits at Walgreens for about $15.00 and then you can Texan it up. Texans Claus!

Hey Darlin', I've not been keeping up with things I've should've been but I did see where you tweeted for Pats fans to not be a-holes towards to visiting Texans fans.......

That's not necessarily gonna hapen though... Many of the Patriots fans that visited our fair city for Super Bowl XXXVIII - (Caraolina v. Patriots) were rude, aggressive and very disparaging of the city of Houston.... May they go **** themselves and I will never hold a mutual respect for the pieces of ****!!!!


Thank you Super Bowl XXXIII for exposing these POS people, errr supposed fans!!

Yes, earlier in this thread I implied that the SantaCon festivities would be in downtown Boston. MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE THE CASE! Be sure to read TexanChick's blog posting on SantaCon activities and click on the links she provided.

I am driving down from New Hampshire today to see the Texans take on the Pats. I have two extra tickets and am at a point where I am almost willing to give them a way....but, you have to be a Texans Fan. My wife and son decided that sitting in a stadium where the temp is around 35 degrees is more than they can bear. Let me know. My e-mail address is njmatt@ymail.com. or text me at 281-733-9423.

It was great meeting a lot of you folks at the CBS Scene on Monday Night.
The Pats fans were great at the bar but the ones where we were sitting started out as nice folks but turned into total Jerkwads by the end of the night.
I'm hoping for some revenge in January!!!

I knew Patriots fans were asshats in general (other than those who had posted here talking honest football talk) when they were here for the Super Bowl v. the Carolina Panthers.... Panthers fans were way cooler!! Patriots fans were ignorant, obtuse and generally rude.... Then again, living up there (AND YES, I have been there) I can understand why they are so miserable..

Ironically, that same season the Texans played the Super Bowl Champs to overtime and had beat their opponent (the Panthers that season)!!!

As an aside.... I really need to get a life in the sense that I remember all that!! FML!!!

Yes, CBS was amazing. Even the bar staff were commenting that they had never seen that many opposing fans in the bar before. Met a lot of great people.

One big observation is that it seems the average age of a Pats ticket holder at Gillette is 10-15 years younger than Texans ticket holders at Reliant. Lots of young, drunk "frat-type" Pats fans yelling racist chants to some of Texans fans sitting in the next section over from me and that made for a miserable time. But the Texans fans kept it classy and ignored them....though it didn't shut them up.

Curiosity begs this question - what kind of racist chants? I make yankee jokes but I can't think of a racist joke for New England. Well other than Texan_Bill.

It was young drunk Pats fans yelling at a group of Hispanic Texans fans in the next section....I don't even want to repeat some of the things they said. I thought New England was supposed to be a "progressive, enlightened" area of the country, but their hillbillies showed up at Gillette last night.

Enough said. Wouldn't want you to repeat them. That is sad and I am sure/would hope not indicative in general.

I have spent a lot of time in Boston and folks grown and raised there do have some funny ideas about southerners. Racism wasn't one.

Goodmorning BOP. Lets go home with a smile on our face, yes it's a tough loss. Still had a great time representing our TEXANS in Boston. Lets please don't show any disrespect and arrogance like we were treated at the game. Been to most of the away games and I must say these were by far the most disrespectful fans to us women. I know our fans at home have more CLASS!!!! C u Sunday. Woohoo. Love my TEXANS!!!

Got this off of facebook and it is absolutely a reason not to spend our money there.

Had fun in Boston but damn the fans are brutal... All i can say is that the staff at the stadium was no help at all. I was sitting alone and there were 4 of them messing with me... it took a whole lot not to act like an A** but i just had to move from my seat....

Arrogance is Ignorant !!!

I'm surprised anybody gave you trouble and that the staff wouldn't help. The Patriots are very strict about this sort of thing and have a no tolerance policy. If you get in trouble you will be banned from going to games and if you're a season ticket holder that means you lose your rights to those tickets.

As far as racial slurs there's no excuse for it so I won't make any. They should have been bounced no questions asked.

A couple of the local radio hosts were talking yesterday afternoon how a lot of the Houston fans acted like yahoo's at CBS Scene in particular. I kind of rolled my eyes when they said it because your fans have been so cool here and on the Pats boards. Maybe just a case on both side of 5% of the people giving everybody a bad name.

Disappointed to hear about the negative experiences. Boston fans are arrogant -- I guess they have a reason to be. Winning so many titles makes you pretty confident. At the same time, there's a big difference between arrogance and ass hattery.

I've been to a few red sox games and have never witnessed any aggressive fans. I've even been to the Red Sox/Yankees game twice. Then again, the Sox have been awful both times so it may just have been a case of humbled silence

I enjoy trash talking, joking around, etc. Serious insults, racist comments, threats are too much. I have zero respect for anyone who takes a game so seriously. I don't get the mentality. You aren't a player. You aren't a coach. You being there has almost zero impact on anything. Why take it so personally?
Anyone who crosses the line from entertainment or makes another fan feel legitimately scared/nervous should be kicked out.

Good for you!! That's awesome that you had an overall good experience with Pats fans!!

I pretty much gave up on Pats (save / sans a few) after the Super Bowl here in Houston... They were asshats!!! I promise! I have no respect for Patriots fans other than those (all 2) that I know and love!

1. He's a Texan fan over his beloved Pattsies, and

2. His cousin Stacy that I love very much!



The rest of the Pats fans?? SUCK IT!!!!


How long did your team suck and was considered futile???? Ummm nearly 30 maybe 40 years before y'all made it to the SB and prompltly got your asses kicked against the Bears, costing me $ 150.00 because someone gave me 17 points?

Sorry emmeffers couldn't even cover the 17..

Eff YOU, You arrogant ****s!!!

This. I have learned to get to your seats early in away games and greet the people around you and tell them you are just hoping for a good close game. I have even bouth beers for ppl around me when I been to away games.

When they were here for that superbowl I ran into some of the MOST obnoxious Pats fans. These guys when walking down the street will shove someone out of their way if they don't think you're moving fast enough. I almost got into it with some guy in a pimpsuit.
