Boston DUers: Suggest some places for a Tuesday Evening Happy Hour
After putting off the decision for too long, we've decided that we're going to try to host a DU happy hour on Tuesday evening, July 27, in Boston.

We're looking for a place where Boston DUers, and DUers in town for the convention can get together and hang out.

We can't afford to buy drinks for everyone, but we could pay a little to rent a room somewhere, and maybe some finger food. We're hoping for a casual bar type place: Beers, Margaritas, maybe a big-screen TV if people want to watch the convention.

We're thinking it would start around 6PM-ish, and last as late as people want to stick around. We're also hoping that some folks in town for the convention would want to stop by for a bit before going to the Fleet Center for the evening.

Any suggestions for possible places?

2. I'm partial to the bar at the Tremont Hotel.
Right sized for the DUer's get together I think and reasonably close to the Convention Center.

Sadly, I doubt I can attend, but you never know....

3. The Rattlesnake on Boylston Street has a roof deck for smokers
and pretty good margaritas. The food is typical bar food (nachos and fried stuff). There are TVs and a pool table. It is right near the Green Line Arlington T stop.


J.J. Foleys is right in Downtown Crossing (Kingston St, behind Macy's) and accessible to all subway lines. It is a great neighborhood bar, with pretty good food.


Closer to the Fleet Center and Fanueil Hall, there's The Point. It used to be a dive, but is no longer. http://boston.citysearch.com/profile/11439131?cslink=se...

Silvertone is also downtown and has great inexpensive bar food and drinks. They have a BIG back room which you can rent or just take over, I believe. The phone number is (617) 338-7887

Paddy Burke's is right near the Fleet Center and Kerry HQ, but I doubt we'd be able to fit in there with all the Irish Dems in Boston!
