Boston Convention & Exhibition Center Celebrates 1 Millionth Cab Ride

BOSTON – The Boston Convention & Exhibition Center today celebrated its 1 millionth cab ride during the first day of the PAX East video gaming convention.

Now, a clarification: This is NOT EXACTLY the 1 millionth cab trip to or from the BCEC. The MCCA expects that specific cab to drive to the BCEC sometime on April 12. But with PAX East opening up and the buzz of activity around the building, the MCCA and Executive Director James E. Rooney ceremoniously honored the 1 millionth cab ride today.

“This is a stunning achievement for such a young building,” said Rooney. “Without the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, these cab rides would not have happened, or they would have taken place in another state. But they did happen, in rain and shine, and Boston and the MCCA is better because of it.”

Which Boston Restaurant is a Top 10 Outdoor Dining Destination?

Here in Boston, we love to eat outside – even in a heat wave. Because after being locked inside all winter long, nothing can keep us from the outdoors this summer. And when it comes to wining and dining, you can bet we’ll be on a Boston patio every chance we get.


And trust us – Boston has plenty of outdoor dining options. One of which recently landed on GAYOT.com's list of the Top 10 Outdoor Dining Restaurants in U.S., reports the Huffington Post. Our own Legal Harborside was listed as one of the best restaurants with outdoor dining – and for good reason.
