    For serious, I haven't kicked around Downtown, Beacon Hill, North End, or South End too much.

    Back Bay:
    Towne - Not bad usually an older crowd (I mean older than 25), it has a divorcee vibe to me. Food and drinks aren't bad.
    Sonsei - One of the be seen and be heard places, sort of an institution for cocktails.

    Kenmore Square:
    Eastern Standard, Hathorne, and Island Creek Oyster House are all right next to each other. They are all interchangeable with slight variations. I prefer Hawthorne, a little less busy and has less douches. Eastern Standard has a fucking awesome spirits list. If you are into spirits neat this is a great place.

    Fuck seaport.

    Depending on what you are looking for, and where you are staying, I can be more helpful.

    You can rent the whole boat. For an extra $100, you can wear the captain's hat.

    From what I understand, Big A could amuse himself for hours at the Children's Museum.

    Never in my life would I have imagined that Towne would be mentioned several times in one thread.

    Yeah, Sonsie is a real Dominique Strauss-Kahn-kinda place. It's good to poke in your head midday Monday to get a good sense of who to avoid the rest of the week.

    I'm not crazy about Towne, but you can find women there on a Friday night.

    I thought I would try and add some mildly helpful advice to your thread. All you want to do is tear me down, Bill. :(

    The best thing about Strega is watching the owner eat everthing off your plate that you did not finish, which will be pretty much everthing. It's traditional to rap his knuckes with a spoon if he reaches too early.

    You can find the exact same women in Revere and Methuen on Sunday to Thursday nights.

    Saturday mornings, you can find them at the Kenmore Sq. T station.

    In Big A's case, this gets you half a scraggly beard.
