Holiday Cheer

Boston is a great place year round but come holiday season, when the lights go up all over the city, it adds an element of cheer that is hard to describe!

Here are some great things going on around us during the winter season:

1. The Boston Frog Pond: https://bostonfrogpond.com/

2. Boston Winter in City Hall: http://cityhallplazaboston.com/

3. SoWa Holiday Market: http://www.sowaholidaymarket.net/

Now we just need a little snow, just enough to make the city look like a snow globe!

Meet Me At The Raw Bar

Imagine this, it's a stressful week in the office (most of you don't have to imagine this part, though), between meetings that go on for far longer than necessary to the boss man not being impressed with the presentation you spent hours prepping for and to top it off the T is absurdly slow during rush hour and packed to the brim with strangers...only to be going back to your house that needs to be cleaned and dinner that needs to be cooked. What if we had the perfect solution for you, where you can sit back, relax with a cocktail and all your favorite seafood within arms reach. Well it's no longer something you have to imagine, it's happening and it's happening right at the front of our bar! 

Why not spend an hour or two after work distressing and by the time you've done so the T will be running on schedule and you might even get a seat for you ride home!

Carrie Who?

Whether you are from Boston, traveling for work or exploring the city from out of town, the common question we hear is "Who is Carrie Nation..." We get it, you walk into our restaurant and see a woman, with a rather mean mug and a hatchet, not exactly inviting! We promise there is good reason for this!

A woman with absolute determination, guts and often even called a crusader of her time inspired us! Her wrap sheet for disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace was pretty impressive too. Carrie Nation was on a mission. The mission, to destroy any and all "speakeasy's" that went against her belief that alcoholic beverages were sinful. Her idea of implementing these beliefs was a bit ironic, using force such as her hatchet, bricks, and rocks to destroy other peoples property. With great effort her mission was not as successful as she had hoped and after her death in 1911 "Faithful to the Cause of Prohibition, She Hath Done What She Could" was etched into her grave.

We credit Carrie Nation's efforts and commemorate her with a speakeasy, although she is most likely rolling in her grave, we have to thank her for the inspiration!

"I felt invincible. My strength was that of a giant. God certainly standing by me, I smashed five saloons with rocks before I ever took a hatchet."
