Hurricane Irene came and went and although it was pretty messy outside and killed the weekend, I think her bark was worse than her bite. Once people realized that Boston was spared from Irene's fury the bars that decided to open for business did quite well.
I started my afternoon with a couple of drinks with Sergio and a friend who came over then we headed over to my friend Ben's house. Ben was hosting a hurricane party. I have to admit his specialty apricot martinis were so good I found myself heading back to the bar again and again. All told about 20 of us ended up descending upon Ben's home. Thank you Ben!
Sorry the pictures aren't a bit better, but phone cameras leave a lot to be desired.
