April showers bring May flowers," but for us here at Corinthian, May showers us with events. And when it rains, it pours! The first days of May were a whirlwind for our team as calendars were filled with client events from the North Shore to Cape Cod and everywhere in between. Our team designed, planned, and executed 15 events in 12 days! We tallied up over 750,000 onsite steps by our team – that is the equivalent of walking from Boston to Baltimore!
Over 3,000 guests were entertained in sprawling (heated) tents and treated to beautifully served gourmet dinners, as well as rustic farmhouse feasts on the Wharf and tours through historical grounds in Salem. There were award galas, networking events, and parties galore with awesome confetti cannons, clay pigeon target shooting and other fun and games. They enjoyed all that this incredible city has to offer, and we plan to keep on rolling right through the rest of this month and into the summer!
As we sit on the eve of the 123rd running the Boston Marathon, we welcome hundreds of thousands of runners, relatives, friends, and spectators to our great city and Spring is here to welcome them. While you're enjoying our historic city at a particularly historic time, here are some things to do before the race starts (or after the finish line!).
The Boston Red Sox will play their annual home game on Marathon Monday, but get there early, first pitch takes place at 11:05 am! It's the only game each year that starts before noon! Or if you prefer the winter sports, the Boston Bruins continue their push to the Stanley Cup on Saturday night at 8:00pm at TD Garden, while the Boston Celtics hit the parquet floor to tip-off their playoff run at 1:00pm on Sunday afternoon.
If you'd prefer a more serene experience, the famous Swan Boats return to the water at the Boston Public Garden for the season on Sunday, with a special ceremony to open the season at 11:00 am with Mayor Walsh. And of course, the Freedom Trail and Faneuil Hall are always great options any time you're in Boston!
Maybe you need to carb load at a local restaurant, like Lucca in the North End or SRV in the South End, where there are plenty of pasta options to fuel you up! On race day if you need to grab a snack or a coffee while waiting for your friends and family to cross the line be sure to check out the Newsfeed Cafe, Spa Cafe or The Wired Puppy, all within walking distance to the famed Boylston Street finish line. After the race, be sure to celebrate the 26.2-mile trek with a craft beer at one of the many breweries in and around Boston. Beyond the well-known staples, there are plenty of local operations, like Trillium of South Boston, Night Shift of Everett, or Dorchester Brewing Co.
We Corinthians wish all the racers the best of luck on Marathon Monday and hope you all enjoy your time in our great city!
