We’re introducing a new feature on the website. We’ll use the Monday Morning Hangover to review places we’ve gone or things we’ve done when we’re NOT crawling. Restaurants, bars, tastings, events, we’ll cover them here.
Corner Tavern is Sunday morning favorite for Team Crawl in Boston. Small and unassuming in the basement of a Back Bay brownstone, Corner Tavern offers a relaxed atmosphere and good food, and is perfect for the morning after a crazy night out. The staff are laid back friendly, always up for trading weekend stories or comparing fantasy football teams. They make a mean Bloody Mary, and they have a small selection of interesting taps. Food wise, they offer a small but good selection. For brunch you can get a variety of egg based dishes. The Eggs Benedict are served classically and always perfectly cooked, served with roasted potatoes. The Duck Confit hash is hearty and delicious. They also offer a waffle sandwich and a breakfast sandwich. You can also get regular sandwiches for lunch like the Rosalita (turkey, gouda, slaw, and chipotle mayo, pressed into gooey goodness), a pulled pork sandwich, and a Buffalo chicken wrap (sandwiches are served with choice of roasted potatoes, pasta salad, or mixed greens). The star of the sandwich selection, however, is the meatloaf burger. Huge and decadent, this is definitely a hangover helper. A tasty slice of meatloaf served on a sturdy brioche bun, with chipotle ketchup, bacon, and cheese, this is an epic sandwich experience that has to be tried at least once. They have the Sunday Ticket during football season, albeit they show the games on very small screens throughout the bar. So it’s good if you want to catch a game, but also hang out with your friends with football not dominating the whole experience. They also lunch and dinner menus, including $2 Taco Tuesdays and weekly shot specials. Prices are decent, especially for Back Bay. Corner Tavern is a hotspot on weekend nights, usually full and boisterous. It’s a good for a quiet drink during the week, especially before a Sox Game if you want to avoid the crowds on Landsdowne.
The Halloween Crawl tickets are going strong. Ticket includes Drink specials at each bar, Beverage Mitt, Selfie Stick, Koozie, Drawstring Backpack, Photo booth, Candy and no covers at scheduled bars.
There are other Halloween themed bar crawls. Make sure you get your tickets via Eventbrite from Crawl In Boston. You won’t get the same goodies with the other events.
Some local places to pick up a costume include Dorothy’s Boutique, New Millennium Costumes, Party City and The Garment District. Just don’t wait until the last minute. You’ll probably be waiting in line.
Have a great week -C.I.B.
