Jerry Remy's isn't just expanding with more pubs. The chainlet is expanding upward, too. The Fenway branch is adding a roof deck, slated for completion in three weeks. There's just one last hurdle: They need a name.
Remy's put out the call on Twitter that they're looking for suggestions. Jason Santos cast a similar plea when opening his new restaurant and ended up with Blue Inc., a write-in from a devoted fan (and so named, of course, because of Santos's signature blue mane). The buzz undoubtedly helped.
Remy's doesn't need the publicity, but that won't stop us from grasping at a few suggestions of our own. So, what kind of name really says "Fenway rooftop bar masterminded by local sports legend"? Batter Up? (They could serve a special menu of deep-fried items.) Home Plate? (Maybe they could offer a wholesome smattering of Remy's family favorites.) Hmm ... clearly, we're striking out. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't offer up your ideas! Any thoughts? [JerryRemysGrill/Twitter]
