I've got some friends in from out of town on Friday who are heading to the Celtics game and then staying at the Omni Parker House. I need a place to grab drinks and possibly a bite to eat around 9:30/10, anywhere in the vicinity of the Garden to Omni Parker. We're 30-somethings, so we're not quite looking for the Faneuil Hall scene.
I was thinking about Clink or Alibia, or perhaps even Woodward (having never been to the later) but I've heard that these places can be crowded on weekend nights; I'm not really looking to wait behind the rope :-) Any thoughts? Someplace with the vibe of Eastern Standard would be great, but nothing seems to come to mind that I know wouldn't be overly crowded and we'd be able to hold a coversation...
