MySpace: It’s Not Just For Teenagers Anymore

Way back in October, we looked at Facebook groups devoted to Boston restaurants. Today, it’s time to look at the Hub restaurant scene on MySpace. As MySpace users know, the site can be…special. Someones, we’ll click on a friend’s picture and then all the sudden we’re assaulted with a flashing background and loud music and we suddenly feel approximately ninety years old. Nonetheless, MySpace is a pretty great way to reach consumers, and we’re excited to see so many Boston restaurants using it. Below, six of the top (or at least easiest to find) Boston restaurant MySpace pages.
