What are the best day drinking spots around?
+1 for good beer and spirits
+1 for on the cheap
+1 for great olde tyme conversation
+1 for non "Irish" bar
I'm not interested in a Bloody Mary on a rooftop patio by a pool on the weekend. I'm talking about unexpectedly getting out of work at lunch time and hunkering down at the bar until you're happily hammered.
I used to love the Abbey Lounge during the day with its ice cold beer and band of retired mischiefs. Whitney's was a daytime staple for me 10 years ago but Harvard Square is especially void of personality in the daytime. I imagine the Behan is a great time when the sun is up and the crowd is elsewhere.
