Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill soft-opens this weekend and, with only 25 days until Opening Day, it’s a safe bet that it will get real crowded real quick. Don’t want to brave the inevitable lines? The restaurant offers $500 season passes, entitling the bearers to a guaranteed game time table, a $25 food credit, a free beer, and a signed photo of Remy himself, reports the Globe. 170 members of the Red Sox Nation have already signed up for the passes, and the restaurant hopes to sell 130 more.
In other Jerry Remy’s news, UrbanDaddy has the menu and, given the crazy good chef pedigree, it’s a little underwhelming. Most of the menu is standard bar fare: think burgers, fish and chips, and cheese fries. When the kitchen gets exciting, though, the kitchen gets exciting. Aside from the aforementioned burger served on fried dough, there’s another burger topped with pastrami, and a plate of grilled skirt steak comes with bacon-wrapped macaroni and cheese.
