Traditional Pre-Thanksgiving Game Luncheon at John Brewer’s

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Mayor Gary Christenson joined Medford Mayor Stephanie Muccini Burke for the 10th Annual Malden-Medford Thanksgiving Football game luncheon hosted by John Brewer’s Tavern. Owner Bill Honeycutt has been hosting this traditional pre-game feast for the players, coaches and cheerleaders of Malden Golden Tornadoes and the Medford Mustangs every year since 2008. The rivalry between the two cities is the second longest continuous Thanksgiving Day competition in the history of our country with the longest being the competition between Boston Latin and Boston English for 132 years. 

The 130th Malden and Medford High School Football game will be played in Medford this year. GO MALDEN!
