Step one to a good show experience is getting your tickets. Step two is finding a spot to stay. If you’re from out of town, or if you just plan to rock out too hard to make it home afterward. And step three is planning your pre-show drinking spot.
All the steps matter, but step three is more important than you might think. It sets the scene for the entire night. And just a little bit of planning can make for a pretty incredible evening.
It doesn’t matter where you’re jamming out – House of Blues, Fenway Park, The Verb – all of our recommendations will make for a great pre, during and post-show experience.

Ever wonder how all those runners participating in the Annual Boston Marathon make it through? Sure, the hours of preparation, mental toughness, and a good pair of running shoes are all important. But what about music? A huge part of a workout routine is the music that accompanies it. Music can motivate and push us to our limits, especially during that 10 mile run. Whether you’ve already started training for next year’s Marathon, or just trying to get through your daily workout, having a good playlist will lead to those extra bursts of energy.
Are you curious about what people listened to while working out in the ‘60s? Grab your sweatbands, dumbbells, and radio, because we’re running back in time to prep for our next workout!

If you’re having trouble finding something to satisfy your music craving, or maybe just looking for some awesome shops to give you a taste of Boston’s music culture, then be sure to hit up these record stores. What could make a better souvenir? Make sure to visit these shops on Saturday to find special deals and meet other music lovers!

Here at the Verb, we're all about supporting the creative world. From musicians to artists, many have passed through and left their mark. This past weekend, Mery Racauchi, an internationally recognized fashion designer, stayed at the Verb. Born and raised in Argentina, Mery founded her own apparel, footwear, and accessories brand in 2010. She recently moved to New York to take the US fashion scene by storm. We had the opportunity to ask Mery a few questions about herself and the brand, Mery, she has so successfully brought to life.
