regale, propinquity, acrid, colloquy, asinine

I had a blast last night. A number of us from the lab regaled with sundry alcoholic beverages as a sendoff to Masha as she goes to married life and grad school.

First stop was the Grille and Bar at the Longwood Galleria. The service was horrendous and the prices were exorbitant, but it seemed a natural first choice due to its propinquity to our lab. I ordered calamari, tiny but toothsome, and a girly drink: something iced, minty and fruity. Twas ok in the beginning but soon it started to taste like cough syrup. A drink called Kamikaze was then consumed by everyone, but it didn't really pack any punch.

Fed up with the lack of service and excess of cost, eight of us moved on to The Squealing Pig where we indulged in better, cheaper alcohol but conversely bad food. We had curry fries. That's right, fries topped with curry sauce, which was interesting if not soggy. Mike's hard lemonade and a couple of Amstel lights got me close to tipsyness.

Determined to find really good beer and food the remaining 6 of us we took the 39 bus to the Hynes Convention Center area and found ourselves in Bukowski's Tavern. Which is basically a small hole in a wall right next to what was formerly the Leows Cheri, now a bowling alley. The beer was excellent -- and that's saying a lot since I don't really like beer due to the its acrid aftertaste. I had two bottles of Paulaner Hefeweizen. It was smooth, kind of fruity, with no bitter aftertaste and packs a huge wallop. It was interesting trying to navigate the small hallway to the bathroom, which I had to do several times during the course of our stay. The Buffalo chicken we had was likewise good with just the right touch of spiceness. The major downside to the bar was the incredibly loud music. We all had to scream at each other or speak in each other's ear in order to have some sort of colloquy.

We called it quits at around 1:30 am where 5 of us shared a cab home. I maintain that drinking alcohol should not be about getting wasted or seeing who can drink the most, or who can perform the most asinine act. Rather, it is about enjoying the company of people.
