Happy St. Patty's Day!

There are always lots of activities taking place in Boston for St. Patrick's Day. The main activity is usually hoisting a few pints at the local bar and attending the St. Patty's Day parade in Southie.  If you want to keep the celebration going then check out the 12th Annual Irish Film Festival Boston taking place from March 24th-27th.  The festival honors and celebrates Ireland with the premiere of many films, short films and documentaries. The tradition of wonderful Irish storytelling is guaranteed at the festival.  Films will be screened at the Stuart Street Playhouse in Boston and the Somerville Theater in Davis Square Somerville.

Drink it In

Drink is located below Sportello at 348 Congress St.

If ever you tire of the same old bar and feel a need to class up a bit then head over to Drink located on Congress Street in the Fort Point neighborhood.  Drink is tucked away beneath the restaurant Sportello and being below street level gives a feeling of exclusivity.  Set against brick walls, the U-shaped bar is very welcoming making it easy to engage with other patrons.

         You don't go to Drink for a Bud Light. Oh no, Drink means business. The bartenders are truly masters of their craft here.  They can create, mix and shake any kind of cocktail to your liking. A drink list is not necessary. Just tell them what kind of mood you're in and what flavor you like and let them work their magic. My cocktail had a mix of ginger beer and rum, kind of like a Dark'n'Stormy but better.  You can tell the bartenders take pride in their work and you can taste it in their creations. You won't get a cocktail for under ten dollars at Drink so go crazy and splurge a little. Cozy up to the bar, savor your specialized drink and enjoy the experience.
