Dear Marathoners and Brunchers
“NEW in 2015 – we’re going back to our original roots and bringing the Porter Airlines Team Canada Brunch to Dick’s Last Resort in Faneuil Hall (Quincy Market). The first four years Dick’s helped us get off the ground, not sure if they still have Live Gospel Music but we’ll definitely ask. There is a stage so maybe we add Karoake? Faneuil Hall area is a must-see part of Boston just 5 minutes from downtown and the finish line area. We send a HUGE Thank You to Cynthia and Aldo from Vlora who were our hosts for the past five years, sadly they decided to pack up and sell to a Sushi restaurant so if anyone is in Vancouver track down their new coffee shop opening soon.
Registration is here and we’re ready for action when you are, same FUN times, same FUN memories, the Porter Predict Your Time Contest, Free Marathon Race Entry giveaways from across the country, greetings from the Canadian Consulate in Boston…..and who knows what else will take place in between servings of toast.
What is the Brunch?
The Porter Airlines Boston Tea Party Brunch is in its twelfth year and is a brunch held in Boston the day before the Boston Marathon and is aimed at Canadians who are either running the marathon or are supporting family or friends. We actually have three sittings: 8:30am, 9:30am and 10:30am, so we cater for the early birds and also those that may wish an extra long lie in the day before the big race!
It is a great way to relax and socialize with fellow Canadians and share stories of how you qualified, how your training has went, what time you are aiming for, etc.
