Bukowski, Back Bay, Boston

My wife and I were in Boston, staying at the Sheraton near the Pru. (Business trip for her, little vacation for me.) We were hanging out in Bukowski Tavern on Thursday night and I was looking around at all the people. I said, "This place is filled with cyclists." I don't know how I knew. I just did. My wife didn't believe me until we'd had enough to drink and left. There were all kinds of bikes locked up to the fence next to the bar. I said, "See! I told you!"

Pretty much the same thing on Friday afternoon and evening when we went back. Good beer selection.

None of them had helmets. They were all very trim and fit looking. I think it was more how they were dressed, and a couple had messenger bags, which was what you might call "a clue." One young woman was drinking from a beer mug festooned with anti SUV stickers.

BDG, where do you live? I thought you were in NH. I did think about you when we were there.
