History

A hotbed of activity during the Revolutionary War, Worchester regards itself as the real seat of the Revolution due to the "Worcester Revolution." Over half a year before the first shots were fired at Lexington, thousands of militiamen from Worcester and dozens of surrounding towns gathered at Worcester and ousted all British magistrates and appointed officials, effectively declaring Worcester independent of the British Crown. Worcester continued to play a pivotal role as the war raged on, and the Worchester Town Hall hosted the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence.

Burncoat and greater Worcester take their culture seriously. View a musical or ballet at the Hanover Theater, attend an opening at the Worcester Art Museum, or mix education and pleasure at the EcoTarium -- an indoor-outdoor museum that introduces visitors to the science of the great outdoors. The annual Taste of Shrewsburg Street in the summer brings the offerings of Worcester's Restaurant Row to the public in an indoor-outdoor sampling experience -- inside for a taste of Greek tapas and outdoors to lift a bottle of Budweiser while you listen to local bands perform live, all up and down Shrewsbury Street from Washington Square to Route 9.

As an introduction to the holiday season, Worcester celebrates a local Festival of Lights on the Worcester Common. Come help light the holiday tree and then celebrate the joy of the season while listening to chorale performances and watching ice skating exhibitions.

Within easy access to Burncoat lies Worcester's unofficial restaurant row on Shrewsbury Street, which boasts an array of high-quality traditional American, Italian, and Asian culinary options.

Try family-owned and run Pomir Grill, an Afghani restaurant for those who want to expand their palates. The friendly wait staff happily answers any questions and guides you through the menu, and the pan-style bread that starts your meal comes with three unique dipping sauces to jump-start your adventure. The vegetarian sampler changes according to the season, allowing you to experiment with a wide array of dishes. After your entree, round out your meal with the the house-made baklava for a perfect finish.

Nightlife options in Burncoat prove broad and varied. Catch a movie at the nearby Showcase Cinema, or grab a pint of beer at Bennie's Cafe Pub & Deli, a cozy hole in the wall that boasts great burgers and cheap drinks.

For the more adventurous, the Palladium Nightclub hosts regular heavy metal shows, but watch out — the lines to get in often prove a bit long. Journeying farther into Worcester takes you to a more upscale destination, the Still and Stir Cocktail Bar on Commercial Street. The wide variety of cocktails and skill of the bartenders bring you new regard for mixology as a highly underrated art form.
