First off, the location and ambiance of this place is great. It’s in a gutted house that is very industrial looking on the inside. There is a cozy, netted al fresco dining area that seemed great at nighttime. We got a table in the middle room right in front of the kitchen, which gave us a view of the upstairs room and the bar activity.
Drinking Made Easy
Bacon Night was once again a fantastic experience for the palate. The crowded bar that some shrill Scarlett Look-at-me-in-my-big-hat O’Hara kvetched about was merely a good sign of the desirability of the food and drink at Bad Decisions. The workers were constantly mixing fresh drinks from scratch - so yes it take a while to get your order, but you could see the staff was busy and not loafing around. It was hard for the waitress to deliver an order when she had to squeeze between people…
In September a group of girl friends and I went to Miami for a bachelorette party. I being the planner, looked into many restaurants to find a fun and tasty place to take the group. I found a ton of positive reviews for this place and decided to make a reservation.
Downtown on a summer’s evening with nothing to do? Head here for a fun night of philosophical quandaries- it’s always the beer talking, right?
Absolutely fantastic renovated hotel right off the Beach in Montauk. From the trendy decor in the brand new hotel rooms surrounding the modern pools to the numerous open bars gorgeously set on the property, the Montauk Beach House is the perfect location for a weekend in the Hamptons.
According to Yelp I’m 21 miles from Montauk Brewery but It’s not that close because it’s across the Long Island Sound from me. On a recent vacation to the Hamptons I had to make the trip to visit their taproom & was not disappointed.
I was completely blown away by the sunset I witnessed here last night. I’ve
seen some great sunsets in my time, but this was perfection - complete with
beautiful sailboats in the distance on the calmness of the bay.
Cole’s is known for their french dip sandwiches (which are pretty tasty) but tonight I had their mac n’ cheese and was impressed. Thick macaroni with tons of cheese (two different types) and toasted bread crumbs on top!
I’ve had but 3 different wines here and they are all delicious. Seriously, The Riesling is the best I’ve ever had (the 2008 I believe) and I’ve been up North to wine country so that’s saying something. The Syrah Port is GREATNESS, nice dessert wine after your meal. The other wine was Remy Martin, seriously it’s a wine, and you can NEVER go wrong with the cognac.
Some friends wanted to check out this place so I came along (they mentioned there was a burlesque show which sounded interesting). We went on a Saturday night.
I stopped in Thursday after work around 6:00 while waiting for a movie to start at the Siskel Film Center at 8:15. This is one of the few unpretentious places near downtown where I can hang out with friends and kick back to relax for a bit before heading home or catching a movie/show/whatnot.
As for the bar itself: this place is tiny, but that suits me just fine. Dark wood everywhere, dim lighting and a jazz trio playing in the corner: it’s definitely rocking that speakeasy vibe. And the host had a handlebar mustache.
They turn out their signature drink, the BBC, like water for a reason! The bloody Mary’s are pretty damn good too!
This is by far the best place for after work drinks. My boyfriend and I are regulars there, at first we started going for the drink specials - $2 pints on Thursdays and $4 Cosmos on Fridays.
The Magic Hat Brewing Company has developed a delicious spell with which to welcome in and prepare for the approaching days of fall.
One caveat: There are only 2 tours a week, Saturday at 1pm and 2pm, and you need to call ahead. But don’t worry, I don’t think the tours usually fill up.
Great local bar. Good deals on beer, cool bartenders, and free popcorn. If you’re not sitting at the bar, the seating can be a bit weird as the pool table dominates the small space. Nevertheless, this is a great place to grab a beer and meet some nice folks or watch the game.
During my week in Alaska, I fell in love with this brewery. I can’t explain it; I just love everything about them. I love the font in their logo, I love the artwork on their labels, I love their merchandise, their attitude, their story, and of course best of all I love their beer. In my book, these guys are on par with other dominant regional breweries such as Brooklyn in the Northeast, Bell’s in the upper Midwest, and North Coast in northern California. They put out a suite of…
Head past to Red Dog Saloon and venture into this place. The bar has some serious old-school charm. The bartender was super friendly. There are tons of different local brews on tap, and the day we were there they had a folk band playing.
Came here on my last day of vacation. I had the strongest G&T ever. So strong it was actually warm going down. If you are looking for the stiffest of the stiff in drinks look no further.
