i have just relocated to new haven from providence, and while i am enjoying new haven's unique food charms (hooray for pizza and hamburgers!), i am getting a little homesick for providence. the thing i'm really missing is a comfortable bar where i can settle in, drink good beer, and watch a red sox game. i've been to rudy's, which i loved, but it seems like it really becomes quite a scene as the night progresses (which is all well and good, but sometimes you just want to be a barfly). i'm looking for somewhere where the hip yale students are sort of kept to a minimum, but still a good bar. if anyone else is a providence transplant, i am looking for something like ivy tavern or trinity brewhouse.
