    Every night, right before last call, the bartenders will go in the back and bring out the JJ's mascot. A miniature pig for everyone to pet and love. Her name is Juniper.

    Ask for Sir. Savage and ask him to recall the tale of the 'trial of the Frenchman'. Learn some history, have a laugh, and have a pint! N' tell him truck driver John says hello. Cheers!

    Make sure to play Tim Wilson's "Booty Man" on the jukebox. The bar staff will love you.

    James Savage is the man. He's the bald cartoon man near the draft beer list.

    When it comes to the history of drinking in Boston in the last 100 or so years, you can't really overlook the Foley name. Read more

    Foley’s also serves as a great night cap. There’s a jukebox, the ubiquitous Big Buck Hunter, and free darts. And they take their darts very seriously – Foley’s is home to the Boston Area Darts Associa Read more

    This is the bar I've always referred to as the "real cheers" of Boston". Great Regulars & Staff w/Foley family still running it fabulously. Bartender Jim Savage will make you laugh at yourself.

    Visiting Englishmen, Aussies and Kiwis who miss talking about rugby league and making fun of bald people with big ears should seek out bar tender Jim Savage! Read more

    Grab a PBR and exclaim 'Whitney Baxter is a Vagina!' to get a pint for $2.

    Drink a Sunset Wheat but only if they have oranges. And grab a bowl of clam chowder and a grilled cheese for 8 bucks when you're there watching the game.
