A pub crawl along Brookline Boulevard this Saturday is all about the local businesses.
A pub crawl in Brookline this Saturday will celebrate and support local businesses along Brookline Boulevard. Hosted by the Brookline Chamber of Commerce, the pub crawl is being held to bring awareness to the "Because You're Mine, I Shop the Line" program, which started over the summer as a way to support local businesses. The Chamber has hosted pub crawls before, but this one is a little different. There's no initial cost to participate in the crawl—you'll just have to pay for drinks at the pubs—and the Chamber does not benefit monetarily from the event.

“As sure as night is dark and day is light I keep you on my mind both day and night And happiness I've known proves that it's right …” Because You’re Mine, I Shop the Line. In the vein of Johnny Cash’s famous tune, Brookline’s new "shop local" program is designed to keep minds on something the community holds dear: its business district. The “Because You’re Mine, I Shop the Line” program is a shopper reward program that awards a cash-equal benefit for shopping at Brookline businesses.
