Season Tickets . . . to a sports bar?

Darren Rovell reports on something new:

Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill is opening near Fenway Park next week with a twist.

It’s selling season tickets.

For
a one-time $500 fee, patrons will get a guaranteed table during Red Sox
games. A same “ticket” for Patriots games costs $350 and $250 for
Celtics games.

Rovell notes that it’s not really a bad deal, financially speaking, because Remy’s gives out $25 food and drink coupons for each game, meaning that you can make your money back after 20 games. Well, the money for the ticket anyway. I’m sure your gross beer tab will skyrocket if you get one of these things. And there’s the cost of the angioplasty, liver transplant, etc.

And of course, you still have to explain to your wife why you’re spending three hours a night, several nights a week at a sports bar.  But hey, if she can’t understand your dedication then maybe she doesn’t truly love you. Ever think of that?
