The Cask ’n Flagon calls itself the most legendary sports bar in America. We can’t confirm whether that’s true, but it is true that if Carlton Fisk’s home run didn’t hit the pole, it probably would have broken one of the Cask’s windows - that’s how close this 50-year-old bar is to the ballpark. Before and after games it gets extremely crowded in here, but sometimes that’s the best part of a day at the ballpark.
