What happens when you mix a Bar Crawl, a Party Cruise and Pirates?
You get the Crawl In Boston Pirate Crawl...YEAR 6!!!!
On Saturday June 14th, we’ll be bringing you the 6th edition of the finest themed bar crawls that Boston has to offer. It’s time to kick off the summer with the return of the Pirate Crawl.
One of the stops will take us onto a boat for a scenic trip of the Boston Harbor.
The past few years, our boat has been in the Seaport area. This year we got a boat close to the Aquarium. It will be a much shorter walk for you. That said, our boat is smaller so tickets will be very limited. We have room for 250 - 300 instead of 500+ in years past.
Before and after the party cruise, we’ll be navigating around Boston to the best bars the city has to offer.
Still not sure? A picture tells a thousand words and we've got hundreds of those.

As of the September 9th board meeting, the Shea's YBA board members have voted to hold a $50 commitment deposit that will be returned at the end of the season. This summer and last winter we had problems with kids signing up to play, filling the spot, and then not showing up. Even worse, some kids quit after they got the uniform and we were then short a player and $20 for the uniform. Since players were allowed to sign up without a deposit, they were not as likely to show up or follow through with their commitment which is not fair to the volunteers that work tirelessly to provide this program, and also not fair to the teammates counting on them to be there. The refund will be issued upon completion of the program, as long as the guidelines listed below are met:
1.) In order to be refunded the $50 deposit, players will not be allowed to miss more than 4 practices and/or games for the entire season. If a player does miss more than 4 practice/games, they will still be allowed to play but not to receive the $50 refund. We feel that it is important to add this stipulation to avoid players skipping practices and not being there for their teammates during games.
2.) If a player quits mid-season, they will forfeit their deposit. When you become a part of a team, you are expected to be there for your teammates and they're expected to be there for you. We feel it would set a bad example to allow participants to commit to something, only to back out on their teammates and their commitment later on.
3.) If a player is asked to leave the program for conduct issues (3 strikes and you're out policy, they will forfeit their deposit. There was only one player last year that was asked to leave the program out of 72 players.

Purveyors of a Genre and a Way of Life, Max Creek Celebrates Their FortiethThey Made It Through the Seventies, and They're Still Going.Max Creek is a living, breathing historical study in a hugely significant yet too-oft overlooked American subculture: the jam band. Later this month, Max Creek celebrates their fortieth anniversary with a small East Coast tour, hitting intimate venues in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York City.Creek guesses they've performed nearly 3,000 times over their forty years together. They have set lists for 1,851 shows covering the 80s and 90s but there are more shows, both known and unknown, than set lists still exist for. As with most jam bands and their fans, the majority of the 70s are gone. (What does this mean?)Their first concert as a band was in May 1971 at the Maple View Ballroom (later Woody's) in Washington, MA, a venue at that time owned by Arlo Guthrie. The next three decades were characterized by endless bouts of touring, especially the late 70s and 80s. At their peak in 1982, Creek played 241 live shows. A true jam band, Max Creek and its fans know that the truest experience is the live show. During their long history, they've played some out of this world shows in some out of this world venues, including the Elmcrest Psychiatric Institute in Portland, CT in 1978.In the early years, Creek toured almost exclusively in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New York. Their first ventures into northern New England (New Hampshire and Maine) took place in 1981, and in 1983 they hit the road and took to Philadelphia then back up north to Vermont. Throughout the 80s, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine became regular tour stops along with the old mid-Atlantic standbys.In 1989, they tapped the Mason Dixon line, venturing south to Virginia, North Carolina, Washington, D.C., Maryland, and back to Pennsylvania, adding the Keystone State to their regular tour stops. In 1991 they took a lengthy "ski" trip, playing in mountain towns across Colorado, including Steamboat Springs, Aspen, and Telluride. Later during the 90's they went several times to "the Promised Land" - California, where they played at classic venues such as the Great American Music Hall and Maritime Hall. Perhaps as a result of many year of traveling, they stuck around the East Coast for the rest of the 90s, had families, and played shows pockmarked by occasional westward excursions including to Ohio, and back to Colorado and California.After this many years, they might have showed some signs of slowing down, but not by much. Earlier in 2011, they produced and participated in January's Jungle Jam in Costa Rica with the Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzmann.Seemingly unknown outside their home circuit of Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York, with smaller followings throughout New England (though their annual Camp Creek summer festival is a big crowd-pleaser), Max Creek has fans that have, over the years, spread out and settled in far-flung regions of the country. They have brought tapes, CD's and other recordings to spread the gospel of the band that had become so large a part of their lives. Also, the band has been pivotally influential on an entire generation of jam bands, and their sound has defined much of the genre as we know it today. Interestingly, Phish did a live cover of the Max Creek song: Back Porch Boogie.About Phish's cover, Max Creek's Scott Murawski says, "Mike Gordon wanted to do the song which is an instrumental bluegrass song but he knew Trey wouldn't want to cover a Max Creek song so he told the band he wrote it and they performed it." Whether or not Phish will admit the relationship, when you listen to Phish, you can definitely hear the Max Creek influence.In real life, the band members are a church musical director (Mark Mercier keyboards), video and event company employee (John Rider bass), a TV and audio technician (Scott Allshouse drums), an ADP account manager (Greg Vasso drums), and a computer programmer (Scott Murawski guitar). But as playing together for forty years proves, at heart, they are all musicians, and an integral part of a thriving, if under-the-radar, subculture. More than a band, Max Creek has become a major part of the lives of many of its followers over the years, and, like some in the jam band scene, a social phenomenon as much as a musical entity. Many members of its long-time audience liken coming to Max Creek concerts after an absence to "coming back home for Thanksgiving". In the eyes of both the band and their fans, the existence of the band runs much deeper than the music.Max Creek has never played without a rubber duck somewhere on stage, usually on the bass amp.Glide Magazine writer Shane Handler got it right when he issued high praise for Max Creek saying "Bands like Phish, moe., Blues Traveler, the Disco Biscuits and others are the trees in Max Creek's seeds of a thriving Northeast music scene that encourages live risk taking on stage and playing according to the feel of the present moment."
