FREE Pub Party by Free And Cheap Things in Boston (­)

Free And Cheap Things in Boston ( is having its First FREE Pub Party! (This is from Gary Bloom)

REGISTER: Get your FREE admission ticket at (sends you to[masked]).

How can this happen?

First off, The Wild Rover ROCKS as a venue!!!

Located right next to the Hong Kong at Faneuil Hall, it's easy to find.

Secondly, GOFOBO ROCKS for free movie screening passes!!!

'Nuff said...

How does this all work?  I'll tell ya...

REGISTER: Get your FREE admission ticket at (sends you to[masked]).

ARRIVE: Doors open at 6:30 pm. Free admission all night. Walk in, turn right, and go up the stairs to the second floor. Come early!

FOOD: Free appetizers (chicken quesadillas, pizza, chicken fingers, and a pasta dish, or something along these lines) will be out from 6:30 pm till 9:30 pm. Come hungry!

DRINK: Everyone gets one free drink coupon on entry, good till 8 pm sharp, so don't come late! Come thirsty! And the cash bar will be available all night.

FUN: Bring your friends! Make new ones! Eat good food! Drink! Socialize! Dance!

SWEETS: There will be cookies (and maybe candy) put out around 9 pm. Bring your sweet tooth! And your sweetie! Don't have a sweetie? Maybe you'll meet one here!

TRIVIA RAFFLE: What can I win in the raffle? Movie screening passes! Okay, they're already FREE, but I'll help you set up a FREE Gofobo account and help you get a pair of passes to the screening of your choice. Three people will win passes: 1st place gets three sets of passes, 2nd place gets two sets of passes, and 3rd place gets (yes, you guessed it!) one set of passes.
To qualify for the raffle, you must score a minimum number of points on the Trivia Questions. Download the Trivia Questions page HERE and pass it in before 9:30 pm on the night of the party. If you want, you can email it in beforehand to [masked]. Trivia answers will be announced at the party, and winners will be notified within 48 hours of the deadline. So bring your game and your sleuthing skills!

TALKING: There will be low background music till at least 9:30 pm, maybe as late as 10 pm, so talk! Mix! Mingle! Chat! Gab! Heck, gossip if you want!

DANCING: The lights will go down and the music will go up no later than 10 pm, so bring your dancing shoes!

KARAOKE: There is karaoke on the ground floor. Sing like Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Mariah Carey, or Adele? Bring your pipes and let 'em rip!

LEAVE: The party officially ends at 10:30 pm, but feel free to stay till the 2 am closing time. Party on!

HELP: So, what can YOU do to make this party successful? That's easy... Eat! Drink! Be merry!  And BRING ALL YOUR FRIENDS! The more people who show up, the more money the venue makes, and the happier they will be to have us back over and over again! Heck, if you don't have any friends, bring some strangers! After all, a stranger is just a friend that you haven't met yet, right?

Parking in the Faneuil Hall area can be tricky, so I recommend taking the T, if possible. The Wild Rover is close to the Aquarium, State, Gov. Center, and Haymarket stops.

If you must drive in and can't find a meter, the cheapest parking is $7 at the International Place Garage at 1 International Place, with entrance at 55 Purchase St, with THIS COUPON. The coupon is good nights after 5PM and on weekends, for up to 12 hours, valid through July. The site says the coupon is not good during "POSTED EVENTS," but it doesn't say when those events are, so be aware.

The next cheapest is $10 at the Pi Alley Garage at 275 Washington St, with THIS COUPON. The coupon is good nights and weekends after 5PM, till 3AM during the week and 5AM on weekends, valid through July.

Both garages are about 0.3 mi from The Wild Rover.

    i can only get there later and was just wondering- is there a regular cover charge? if so, how much and what time does it start?

      There's no cover charge this night. Usually there is only a cover charge if a band is playing, and that would usually start at 9 pm.
