In the spirit of the holiday season, Seth MacFarlane released his younger sister from the locked basement this weekend and allowed her a little extra blow money, by giving her some much needed voice over work.
For one of the first times since season 1, Haley Smith was given the chance to shine. Overall it was a pretty good episode, but the depleted role of both Stan and Roger was noticeable. Next time I’m sure things will be back to normal, but we’ll always remember December 8, 2013 as the day the younger Macfarlane sibling soared high above on eagle’s wing.
Located in the Downtown vicinity, this is one of those spots where the beautiful people come to mingle around Happy Hour and on weekends. Think aspiring business suits, hot girls looking for free drinks, and overpriced Bud bottles for the rest of us schmucks. Not really this Johnny’s element, but I digress…
Upstairs is a pretty nice area that fills up and offers a bar, tables, and DJ/dance floor setup where you can bump hips with chicks way out of your league on a Thursday night. Downstairs is more of a ‘club’ setting (loose interpretation – I’m pretty sure they were playing “Hit Me Baby One More Time” and other weird-ass tracks when I was there). Wherever you end up, don your nicest pea coat and button-down or brace yourself for the wrath of judgement from the bartenders and patrons. (Needless to say, my West End namesake does not appreciate Hawaiian shirts… bastards.)
Tuesday-Saturday open 5 P.M. to Last Call. Closed Sunday-Monday, except for Garden events. Expect a cover.
There’s also a reggae brunch on Saturdays (11 A.M. – 4 P.M.) I’ve heard good things about (never attended myself).
Summary: Your typical nice-shoes establishment. In my book, not worth the price of nightly admission unless you’re looking to have a brush with the beautiful people. Reggae brunch on Saturdays is a different story – check that out to stir things up. A classy joint.
If you have been watching college basketball all weekend long, you have seen Allie LaForce. She is another one of those smiking hot, ex miss something, sideline reporters that networks like CBS have been trotting out. She is maybe the best thing to happen to college basketball since free tattoos for the players.
Yep the little gem of a bar that is not too far from Quincy Market. Coogan’s is still selling Bud and Bud Light dollar drafts. Now we have talked about Coogans many times before but really as far as value and fun goes, you cannot beat this place to get drunk.
Did I mention the fact that the back room is just a grind factory at night as well! Yep just ladies looking to get their dance on. Not bad for a buck.
