Boston Writers Meet-up: June 14 at Fenway Park’s Bleacher Bar
Fresh off a terrific Writers Meet-up in Philadelphia, the Bleacher Report Writer Program road show heads to Boston for the next meet-up on June 14 at Fenway Park.
You read that right. Our Boston event will be at the Bleacher Bar, which is in Fenway Park, where the visiting team’s batting cage used to be. There’s a window that looks out onto center field.
Can you think of a more appropriately named place for a Bleacher Report meet-up? There will be the usual terrific food and drink and Bleacher Report gear. We ask that you RSVP via email or in the comments below so we’ll know how much food to order.
The Red Sox won’t be in town that night, but you will be treated to Red Sox fan and Bleacher Report Deputy Editor Adam Hirshfield, who will be your host for the evening. Adam is in charge of coverage for MLB, college basketball, NHL, NASCAR, boxing, wrestling, golf and tennis. It’s safe to say he knows what’s up at B/R.
Hirshfield will be joined by World Football Editor and Lead Writer Will Tidey.
Bleacher Bar’s address is 82A Lansdowne Street. The meet-up is Thursday, June 14, from 6 to 9 p.m.
Not sure you want to come? Here are some emails from B/R writers who attended the meet-up in Philadelphia last week, quoted with their permission.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the rest of the Bleacher Report crew for coming out to Philly last week.
As one of you mentioned, it was hard to fully appreciate the size and the scale of the B/R operation until I was able to meet some of those whose work I’ve enjoyed reading on the site. And while it was great to get a peek behind the B/R curtain (the editing process, etc.), the opportunity to interact with some of my fellow writers proved to be invaluable.
More than anything, it was great to hear others refer to Bleacher Report by using the words “we”, “us” and “our.” As writers, editors and staff members of the fourth-largest sports site in the U.S., it’s nice to know that many of us take the opportunity to be champions of the brand whenever possible.
After last week’s meet-up, I’m more excited than ever to be a member of the Bleacher Report family, and I look forward to playing a role in the continued success of the site.
Ron Pasceri is a Philadelphia Eagles Featured Columnist who has worked on B/R’s March Madness, Kentucky Derby and Preakness coverage teams this spring:
I wasn’t among the people who saw Bleacher Report as a faceless company and I’ve had contact with a few people from the San Fran offices but it definitely opened my eyes a little more to meet you guys.
It was a fun time, as advertised, but I found it quite substantive as well. Hearing your real-time feedback and answers was really helpful and enlightening. I was happy you took some time out to stop and talk to individuals.
Patrick Hansen is a high school senior who’s a Seattle Mariners Featured Columnist, and he came to the meet-up in Philadelphia, which only makes sense, since he lives near … Washington, D.C.:
I had a lot of fun at the Fox and Hound yesterday–you guys did a great job organizing it. It was cool finally meeting some other writers in person.
Boston next. Once again: RSVP here or in the comments.
