The Restaurant I Ate at Last Night VIII
Hub Pub
Actually, Jen and I didn't eat last night, and that was a bit of a problem. But after running into each other on the way to the T -- and freaking out because the train was so packed -- we got off at Park Street and decided to grab a pint somewhere. Just steps away from the Littlest Bar, Hub Pub claims to be the friendliest pub in the Hub. The Littlest Bar was hella crowded, so we decided to put Hub Pub to the test. And it was pretty friendly! A stranger sitting next to us kept talking to us about his 12-year-old son and how he was worried about his lack of motivation -- and told me that Jen was a "keeper" and that I was going to be successful because I was "focused." And the bartender helped us out when we couldn't figure out how to feed money into the cigarette machine. Hub Pub was surprisingly not crowded -- and seemed to attract a pretty decent, normal crowd for a bar so close to downtown. Not a lot of suits.
