BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It's becoming an annual rite of spring—"The Patios," a beer garden located on the corner of Boston's City Hall, is open.
It's the result of a joint venture between the city, Berkshire Bank, and the Boston Garden Development Corporation.
Mayor Marty Walsh said the beer garden changes the complexion of the building, and makes the place more inviting.
"There's a lot of opportunity here to come and enjoy yourself, express yourself in different ways," Walsh said. "Having a building in the middle of Boston that has so much acreage around it, so much open space, you don't really have that."
He says that, in the years to come, residents will see more activity and development on the plaza to make the people's house more inviting.
As the mayor cut the ribbon on the beer garden Monday, he was holding a puppy—showcasing "Wag Wednesdays," when a dog rescue out of Dedham will bring puppies to play with visitors from noon to 2 p.m. every Wednesday.
