Slang term used in reference to Boston, Massachusetts. Ironic as you will rarely see people eating beans in Boston. Individuals with intense elitist attitudes may reside here. Also home of the Red Sox, expensive rent, numerous colleges, and crippling traffic.
I went to Beantown today to hang out with people that don't pronounce their R's, are hyper-educated, and/or working class heroes. Good thing they don't actually eat beans here or it would smell terrible.

Complete slander. No one from Boston ever calls it Beantown.
"I love bean town!"
"You fuckin' retahded tourist. It's Boston. Not Beantown."

Another name for a barrio. A neighborhood with a large cluster of Hispanic immigrants. Where Beaners live and shop. Where you go to find cheap day labor, eat fish tacos, and buy weed.
I have to finish this deck by this afternoon and I only have $80 and need 10 guys to do the job. I better head down to Beantown.

Horribly outdated nickname for Boston, Massachusetts that no self-respecting Bostonian or New Englander uses. Typically used only by tourists, sportswriters, or television reporters that are new to the area. Name stems from the New England food staple of beans slow-baked in molasses.
Every college kid calls this place Beantown until someone decks them for it.

It's suppose to be a nickname for Boston, MA.
A Major Fail.

Of course many teenagers who live in Boston use it because they think its cool, for some odd reason.
When in reality it make them sound retahded (for the many of you people here who think we all actually talk like that) and makes me question how well our education system really is.
beantown is a stupid name.
