Where to Drink: Boston


Where You Should Be Drinking: Juliet We mentioned yesterday that we recently celebrated a birthday dinner at Red Hen. Well, that was just birthday dinner one of two. Our birthdays are less than a week apart; so we could, if we wanted, just do one combined birthday dinner. But we don’t want to.

And we’ll say it again: if you live in Boston, it’s well worth the trip out to Woburn to taste what Baldwin & Sons is mixing; we’d even go so far as to say that if you’re visiting town,...

Where We’ve Been Drinking: Russell House Tavern in Harvard Square There were two distinct things we did this summer: go to France and go to Boston (a lot). Getting married in the Boston area was a popular activity among our friend group, and thus we happily trekked multiple times to our home away from home during the most beautiful season of the year.
