Saloon in Davis Sq.

I have not gone back since I got served a shaken Negroni. That is cocktail bar 101, if you get that wrong, you have no business serving craft cocktails.

Stoddards bartenders always seem to be weeded no mater the amount of people at the bar.

Lemon Hart 151 still avail anywhere?

We got a bottle of the original at Astor Spirits in NYC in the Spring.

Also, wade cinnamon syrup last weekend! Was thinking of heading to Haymarket to buy some old (juicy!) fruit today.

I would have loved some of that the two times I went to the Arlington location. Whatever.

Bourdain - Boston show -- discuss

I'm not sure how Bourdain found The Unband. They were big in Western Mass, but that's about it. I was sad to see Mike all cleaned up and polished as he was far from that in Northampton in the 90's.

Today's Groupon- $15 for $30 at Redbones BBQ

This is the only place I've heard of people having trouble using a groupon. Some friends had trouble using this last time if the food to booze ratio was not correct.

Just for fun - most overpriced drinks in Boston?

Not sure if $1-$2 more than most bars for a terribly poured pint is down the middle.

What's the deal with the new Clover space in Harvard Sq.? Anyone tried it yet?

Of all the Clover food I have had, I've had the best here. I find the food at the trucks to be very inconsistent and this is not the case the few times I've been to the Harvard Square location.

The only negative was the pour over coffee, it's right by the door way, which makes for cold coffee, and it's poured too fast which makes for weak coffee.

Why aren't more bartenders up on their game?

1) Old Fashioned with fruit - In your opinion, is this ok to shake?

2) w/o fruit - I don't mind the small shake as it gets rid of the sugar sludge on the bottom of the glass.
