Following the introduction class, the group will enjoy a gourmet picnic-style lunch from the much anticipated second restaurant of Chef Paul Turano, “Cook,” located in Newton, MA. Whether an experienced indoor climber or someone just looking for a fun, this all-inclusive outdoor excursion is only $65 per person and has something for everyone!

OPENING EARLY ON BLACK FRIDAY

We’ll be opening at 10 AM on Black Friday, November 25, 2011. Here are the top five reasons why you should join us…

1. Shake off that sleepy turkey coma. It happens every year: right after you’ve finished your holiday feast, your eyelids start to feel heavy and the next thing you know, you’re dozing on the couch. Snap out of your tryptophane coma with an invigorating day at the BRG.

2. Cross someone off your holiday gift list. BRG gift cards make the perfect present for anyone!

3. Relieve stress. We all love our families, but a full day with the in law’s? No need to say more. Come to the BRG to get out your frustration…

4. Avoid long lines. Why freeze in a long line, out in the cold at the big-box stores? We’ve got plenty of space at the BRG…

5. Make it a family affair! Do you have family visiting from out-of-state? Looking for something exciting to get them out of the house? Bring everyone down for a fun day of climbing!
