Booze in Boston

Bar to Bar Through Beantown

Our Mission

So one day, Eric decided that he and Valerie should start a blog. Part of this came from their passion for Yelp!-ing, while the other part came from Eric’s desire to make sure he didn’t drive Valerie insane once there was no more wedding planning to do. What do we have in common? We both love food and drink, as well as each other, so we came up with a plan…

Our mission is simple: foster our love of fine beverages by visiting as many bars as we can within Boston (and then expand to areas within Greater Boston as well as featuring some special posts).
Here are our rules:

  1. Order drinks that are unique to each bar’s menu/repertoire
  2. Spend no more than $25 on the two drinks (if we drink more than two, so be it…we may also sample some delicious food as we see fit).
  3. Try new things: we both have our favorites, but we’re hoping to find new favorites along the way!

How it shakes out:
We’ve developed a rating scale based on the following factors:

  • Flavor
  • Ambiance
  • Service (Bartending)
  • Price
  • Presentation/Photoability/Does it look pretty?

We will rate each experience with “Cheers!”, on a 1-5 Cheers! scale which will be represented with martini glasses, like this:

One Cheer!  allll the way up to Five Cheers!:

Each experience will be broken down to let you know what we felt about each aspect of the rating. We also welcome feedback in the comments section, to make sure we didn’t go in on a lousy day. We hope that through this, we’ll find some new favorites that we can share with you!
