Where to watch the Sox in Westboro/Shrewsbury?

Anyone have a suggestion of a good place where 2 gals can watch the game Friday night? Westboro is best, since it is halfway between our two homes. Good eats and great drinks.....I can't come up with anything better than Chili's in Shrewsbury......
Years ago we used to go to JP's in the Westmeadow Plaza (used to be known as The German Tap)....had a pretty decent bar
How could I have forgotten? The Picadilly Pub is just off Route 9 near 495 in Westboro. Decent bar, and decent food.
Post Office Pub has great atmosphere for a bar, is nice and spacious, and has plenty of TVs such that you can sit most anywhere in the bar area and have a decent view of the game. The Bartenders are very nice too.
Thursdays and Fridays they have Karaoke too. The DJ (Roberta) is very nice too. Food is decent pub fare -- lots of selections.
I liked it because it was a walk across the street from my GFs place :)
It's a shot down 140 from Rt 9 - at the intersections of 30 and 140 (just a bit further south than 140 & 20)
Thanks for all the recs...
In our desire not to go to a typical sports bar, we ended up at the Canyon Cafe in Westboro. We got their early and snagged seats at the bar, right in front of their 2 large flat screens. Nice crowd..good energy.
Had the house top self margaritas......large shaker-full yielded 2-3 good sized delicious ones!
A nice variety basket of fresh chips showed up immediately, containing corn, flour and sweet potatoe (!) chips. Served with the house salsa that bursts w/chipotle. We shared the tableside guac, prepared by Woody, our awesome bartender. Excellent, but maybe a little too much garlic (I should have asked him not to put so much in!). I had a veggie burrito which came with their margarita slaw...very yummy and so huge I had to take 1/2 home. Coated with a nice mole...not too much cheese, which is a major flaw of most Mex-style places, IMHO. I can't remember what my DC ate, but it looked great and she loved it.
We had a great time!
