Baseballs Greatest Concert Venue

This week marks a legendary occasion in the marriage of Boston music and sports.  On Tuesday, August 15 and Wednesday, August 16 Fenway Park is playing host to the minister of rock and roll, the infamous Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.  I’d swim across the Boston harbor to get a pair of tickets to see this show.  I don’t even think I’d have to like Springsteen and I’d still want to go.  There’s something magical about pairing a rock legend with a historic sports venue like Fenway.  The two were meant for each other.  So this got me thinking.  What other awesome concerts have there been in the basilica of baseball?  And who’s made the most appearances?

Well after a quick search I uncovered Fenway’s concert history and as expected there’s been some pretty big names to headline what is probably the most epic concert venue in the world…or at least in Major League Baseball.  Check it out!

5 Reasons to Hire a Party Bus for Your Night Out

Posted by Michael Foilb on Sun, Mar 05, 2017 @ 09:30 AM

Party Buses have skyrocketed in popularity. For Proms, Bachelor/ette Parties, Concerts, Sporting Events, Sweet Sixteen, Night on the Town, more and more people are getting together with friends to rent party buses.

 

landyachtinside.jpg

Real Party Buses are Loaded with Fun amenities 

  • Leather Seating
  • Surround Sound Stereo
  • iPod hookup
  • Light/Laser Show
  • Bar with Glassware, Napkins, Mints, Ice Chest, etc.

 

Reason 1: It's Affordable!

That's right, it's affordable. When you chip in with all your friends you may each end up paying less than $10/hour. This varies by vehicle. We have Sprinters, Cabin Cruisers, Land Yacht, Luxury Liner, Shuttle, Trolley and more. Passenger space varies with capacity.

Reason 2: Great Deals

Having a group of people in a party bus get driven to a business is a win/win. Company's love to get the customers that come in the bus. They like party buses so much that they regularly offer deals to our clientele. Casinos offer packages that may include free food vouchers, gaming credit and a free gift. Promotions vary and change for different venues. 

Night clubs also offer us special deals. We can regularly get our customers in with No Cover Charge (or reduced). They can get access to VIP tables and ultimately get treated like a celebrity.

Reason 3: Get the Party Started

You don't have to wait to get to your destination for your party to start. Start when you get on the bus. Hook up you iPod, chill some beverages over ice and get your pre-game on during the ride. Adding the travel time to the party time makes for an epic night out.

Reason 4: Chill

A party bus alleviates all the angst and anxiety of a night out. Who's car, who's the driver, where can we park, where can we pre-game, etc. In a party bus you only have one responsibility, that's having as much fun as possible.

Reason 5: Safety

It may sound boring, but a party bus means a professionally-trained driver is keeping you safe. No worries about DUI or assigning some friend to be the designated driver. On a party bus everyone gets to party and they can party hearty.

Things to keep in mind:
  • There's a difference between a party bus and a party on a bus. Make sure you know what you're paying for or you could end up with a painted school bus with a disco ball.
  • Think about the price per person. While there's no free rides, spreading the costs makes costs manageable. Of course, if you're loaded, just splurge.
  • Look for an experienced company running well=maintained vehicles. Gamble when you get to the casino, not when you hire your party bus.
  • Sometimes we hear from people that they don't have enough friends for a party bus. Well you'd be amazed how many new friends and friends of friends jump on board the party bus with you.


PARTY BUS FLEET:

 

Le Limo has an extensive fleet of party buses from 12 to 28 passengers. Check out the fleet online here. Come to our Open House this Saturday from noon to 3 or call us for a quote 508-842-4790.

Other great options in central Massachusetts include the DCU Center and Hanover Theatre:

The Hanover Theatre is gorgeous and hosts every type of show which includes concerts, comedy shows, plays, etc.  I personally have attended a concert at each of these venues and they all are great and provide a diverse schedule of events and concerts.

There are great options for nights out at Mohegan Sun Arena and the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods. And of course, there are entertainment options beyond the concert scene, sporting events, night out, bachelor/ette parties, sweet 16 parties and more.

Enjoy New England this summer.

A Party Bus versus a Party on a Bus

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 @ 09:28 PM

Party buses are all the rage these days. People hire them for nights out, bachelor/bachelorette parties, sweet 16, proms, rehearsal dinners, sporting events, theater nights, scavenger hunts, graduation, casino packages, holiday parties and more. It’s a great way to get a large group together for a fun time while splitting the cost among a gang of friends.

Interior of our Land Yacht, the ultimate party bus

We get calls every day about our party buses and our trolley. Le Limo’s fleet has a wide variety of options based on the number of passengers you’re inviting and how you want the bus to look and feel. We have our 28-passenger Luxury Liner, our 26 passenger Land Yacht (the staff favorite), our 18 passenger Cabin Cruisers and the Mercedes Sprinters. But they all have a different atmosphere. The Land Yacht is the ultimate party bus. It’s like a night club on wheels. Two bars, surround sound stereo, fiber optic color changing lights, slate floor, wrap around perimeter seating, DVD/CD combos, an intercom systems, 40” LCD TVs, touch screen control panels and a privacy divider. It’s hard not to have fun on the Land Yacht.

But there is a difference between a party bus and a party on a bus. While guests even have a blast on our shuttle bus, we’ve seen some pretty sorry excuses for a party bus. School buses painted bright colors do not make a party bus. Forward facing seats isn’t really a party bus. The key to any great time is to spend it with great people, but spending that time on a great ride is icing on the cake.

A party bus has the amenities you crave for a great time. Don’t settle for just a bus, oh you’ll save money, but you want to make sure your friends are still talking to you when they get on board. While you can get a decent sense of what a party bus looks like online, we strongly suggest you go check out the bus in-person. Minimally, ask lots of questions, make sure that what you see is what you get. Le Limo has an Open House every Saturday from noon to 3 PM. However, we do urge you to call if you're considering a specific bus, it might be rented when you come by.

We’ve heard stories of buses not being cleaned, smelling of alcohol and cigarettes, ripped leather, no glasses, no ice…just a bare bones bus. Then there are some things you may think are great features on a party bus that just don’t quite pan out as planned.

People sometimes ask for a bathroom, while we’ve had party buses in the past that have had a bathroom, we got more complaints than anything else. Did you ever try to share a bathroom with 28 of your closest friends after a night of drinking? Enough said.Le Limo also stopped offering buses with a stripper pole. Again this sounds like a good idea until someone who’s had too much to drink is hanging upside down 5 feet in the air and suddenly loses their grip. Liability issues arise for the event organizer, the night club, the limo company and it can be ugly.

Please be aware that our bigger vehicles are one-of-a-kind party buses, they regulary sell out during peak periods like, proms, weddings and Patriots games. We pride ourselves on being high-end luxury providers that offer a sense of class and elegance. We don’t just offer a bus for a party, we offer top-tier party buses. Check out our selection, call us, visit us and ask questions. Make sure you hire the party bus that is right for you.

Blackout Wednesday - Consider the Livery Option

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Nov 05, 2014 @ 03:27 PM

Blackout Wednesday

You know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday but are you familiar with Blackout Wednesday? It’s the night before the Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving eve has become associated with binge drinking because very few people have work on Thanksgiving. Plus college students all over the country come home to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with their families. They get together with old high school friends in their hometowns and over indulge in alcohol consumption.

The day gets its name because folks are "blacking out", which is memory loss due to excessive alcohol intoxication. In many parts of the country Blackout Wednesday is the most popular bar night of the year, ahead of both New Year’s Eve and St. Patrick’s Day. Which leads to this night being one of the top drunk driving night of the year in some cities. Authorities report the day has become one of the deadliest nights of the year for young adults.

So whether you’re a participant or a parent of a college student home to party with friends please be extra safe. Even if you’re not drinking, the guy in the other car may be drunk. If you don’t have a designated driver please give us a call to set up transportation for a safe night out.

We can provide Party Buses, Limos, Mercedes Sprinters and more.

What's the Big Deal about a Dishwasher?

Posted by Michael Foilb on Fri, Sep 12, 2014 @ 04:32 PM

At Le Limo, we have our own dishwasher!!

Dishwasher

Why does that matter? Because we use it to clean our glassware the day before every vehicle goes out for a job.

Isn't that obvious? Well you'd think so but with so many small livery companies in the area, they just don't have space, time or budget to run their stemware through a dishwasher. Many don't even use glassware. They simply take it out of the vehicle figuring if you needed it you would have asked for it.

Some just skip the dishwasher stage. Well we've actually heard of stories where companies clean the glasses with glass cleaner and paper towel. Maybe some people like that fresh Windex flavor?

Then again, several companies just use plastic cups. We think that when you're paying for a night out draped in elegance, you deserve real glass.

At Le Limo, our sedans, limos, party buses, shuttle bus, SUVs, trolley, Sprinters, etc. all have real glasses, cleaned in a the dishwasher shown above. Many of our vehicles have two bars with a combination of highball and champagne glasses. There's a lot to keep clean.

How does this make us a great limousine company? Well, it's one of the many little things that we do to sweat the details. For us, it's all about exceeding your expectations. Every trip with Le Limo is a little bit more elegant than our competitors. It's our attention to the minutiae that earns us accolades from our customers, Angie's List, WGBH's Boston A-list, The Knot, Wedding Wire, etc. While we make sure to get the big stuff right, part of the what seperates us from other livery companies is our ability to get the small stuff right.

Our mantra is to do more and to help you Return to an Era of Unparalleled Luxury!
