2. The Hawthorne at Hotel Commonwealth
We love the Sox as much as the next guy, but even diehards need the occasional escape route from the Fenway bros-and-beers sports bar scene. All roads lead to The Hawthorne in Kenmore Square, where you can swap Fenway Franks for mini Reuben toasts, Bud Light for a Bull Fighter (Zucca, Barenjager, and lemon), and fans for females.
500A Commonwealth Ave., Kenmore Square (617-532-9150).
