It's called Samuel Sewall Inn, my buddy Nick (he's actually on here as mkone, but he rarely posts) gave me the pro tip on it. Pretty solid price (comparatively), seems really comfy and quaint, and pretty close to the venue.
Let's just go ahead and say it's official. I've decided for you. That's one less night in a hotel and free transport from Port Chester to Boston (without me, it'll be a pretty difficult trek). Plus the wonderful company, I think it's a win/win situation ;D I won't rape your nipples this time... unless you want me to, that is...
if anyone is still looking for a place to stay for NYE in Boston, I found this place that is really nice and relatively cheap. It's also 1 block away from where the others are staying tinyurl.com/cdvkryl
I'm not sure about the lunch meats part, but Sunset Grill-Tap will get you drunk. There are 112 beer taps plus another 350-400 in bottles. The beer menu is eight pages long, front and back, folded into a pamphlet.
The place is about 3/4 of a mile walk from Agganis Arena. The sister Sunset Cantina (known for margaritas, but has decent beer selection) is right across the street from the arena, but I imagine that will be packed with others trying to go to the show. There aren't many bars right nearby since Boston University surrounds the area, and a residential neighborhood of Brookline.
It is a popular spot, I just hope we get there at a time where we can actually get a table for a decent sized group. There have been times I gone to Grill-Tap (and the Cantina) where there's a lengthy wait to get a seat/table.
Are you going to try to go to that?? It might be pushing it for me. January 1 is a holiday for me and I begged off January 2nd, but I HAVE to be at work on the 3rd. And Karosko's flight is early morning on the 3rd. It's about 3 hours away from my apartment.

This. I will be within short distance or a MMJ set, unless the prices are completely insane I can't not be there. Plus I think there would be a serious chance for a Bruce appearance and Bruce and MMJ together would be epic
