Tonight! You're Invited! Boston Awl Readers to Drink, Possibly Mate

Drinks are on you tonight in Boston, the town where the drinks are always on you! The Boston Bawl v.2.0—a casual holiday party thrown by Awl readers for Awl readers—is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. tonight, at the Green Street Grill (in their downstairs bar), which is located, unsurprisingly, at 280 Green Street, Cambridge, Mass. Questions? Talk to your cohosts, Garge and BoyOfDestiny.

YMMV, but that promise of mating went WOEFULLY unfulfilled at last week's NYC gathering. Though it's much colder in Boston, so who knows?

jolie (#16)

Not from what Choire and I heard…

@jolie: "heard"?

jolie (#16)

@Clarence: "read"

Matt Langer (#2,467)

RUB IT IN.

@jolie: "SHARE!"

jolie (#16)

Yay! Choire Alexandah babies for everyone!!

garge (#736)

The funny thing is, I am actually ovulating today.

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

Possibly, he goes.

Kevin (#2,559)

I will be there for reals.

garge (#736)

Excellent! If you flake, I know what your cat looks like!!

Kevin (#2,559)

Pica the wonder-cat, while a stunner looks-wise, will cut you!

garge, pick a town and STICK WITH IT!

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

Don't try to steal her from us!

garge (#736)

Come one, come all! You can recognize me by my Michelle Obama sweater, and I will probably be making that face as well.

City_Dater (#2,500)

Now THAT makes me wish I could go, and I haven't set foot in Cambridge since I was young enough to spend the day on a bench, wearing ripped fishnets and 10-hole boots, waiting for my loser nonboyfriend to stop looking through boxes of used records already.

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

Incidentally, you can recognize me by my ripped fishnets and 10-hole boots.

Oh, thank god you told me what to look for. I had visions of wandering up to various strangers and saying "are you AWL here for the BAWL?" or something equally horrible.

MParcells (#375)

I'll be the one with my nose in the exhaustive alphabetical cocktail menu.

garge (#736)

MParcells is right, ask for the extended cocktail list, if I am not at your side to impose it upon you!

roboloki (#1,724)

boston liquor party on the anniversary of the boston tea party.

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

How about that? We ought to instigate some kind of revolution in commemoration.

The place of employ will be left early to get a leg up on the vodka drinking. There has been much anticiaption for this event (only slightly exceeded by that for the vodka drinking.)

cherrispryte (#444)

I can personally testify to the awesomeness of both of your hosts, so to all you Bostoners (Bostonites?) I say thee GO GO GO!

jolie (#16)

Bostonians. Or more properly, 'fahckin' ahsholes'.

cherrispryte (#444)

Ah right. What can you tell me about the ice of Boston, then?

Matt (#26)

It's muddy, it reflects no light, and I slip on it every time.

scroll_lock (#4,122)

Ok, don't just throw that tagline out there- full details on the budding NY romances.

Multiphasic (#411)

Poisonville sexed the entire room with just his eyes. Just his eyes.

Bittersweet (#765)

I'm already mated, but will be there to help the sorting process for the rest of y'awl.

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

In all seriousness, I'm very vulnerable, and very available.

Bittersweet (#765)

Think of me as your cheerleader and your shoulder to cry on. I'm awesome at multi-tasking.

Kevin (#2,559)

I will assist you. Also, if ya'll aren't interesting the bf won't be show.

deepomega (#1,720)

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

deepomega is the Rembrandt of the emoticon. Or maybe the Picasso, I'm not sure.

jfruh (#713)

ARE THERE ANYWHERE ENOUGH BALTIMORONS HERE TO DO A "BAWLTIMORE" GET TOGETHER

ANSWER YES OR NO

I WILL NOT GO TO DC YOU BASTARDS

Matt (#26)

Hey.

cherrispryte (#444)

We could hold one in Greenbelt or some shit and have it be inconvenient for everyone?

Matt (#26)

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY OR GTFO

deepomega (#1,720)

Do it in Columbia, btwn the 25th and the 31st, and I'd be there. Obviously.

Smitros (#5,315)

Hey, I'm only half-bastard!

But it can be a hike between the two cities.

cherrispryte (#444)

Yes, but as someone who has been repeatedly stuck in Baltimore in the middle of the night, it is way easier to get out of DC in the small hours than it is to get out of B'more.

@cherri While car theft is a definite possibility in both DC and Baltimore, it has only happened to me in Baltimore!

Annie K. (#3,563)

(quiet whisper) I'm in Baltimore,Josh, and I didn't know that going to DC from here was even possible.

Matt (#26)

The "DC" Awl Bawl, coming to you live from the Hard Times in Woodbridge. First one to get a knife wound wins a trip to England!

Cool, sounds like we will have a good crowd tonight! I will be there, hopefully in a better mood than I am in now, because work sucks ass today.

I'm very excited to see y'all (y'awl?) tonight! I'm taking the commuter rail in so everyone has to be nice to me.

Bittersweet (#765)

Where from, Josh? I'm driving to Alewife myself…the Fitchburg line doesn't run often enough for my taste.

From Lowell. I get to ride the whole line!

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

Oof. And I thought taking the whole B line twice a day was rough.

garge (#736)

Such a commute certainly warrants a drink on someone else's tab, Yes We Can!

Bittersweet (#765)

Lowell? Neighbors! I live 15 min. down 495 from you. See you soon!

garge (#736)

Thanks to everyone who braved the new New England cold, it was a genuine DELIGHT to see rebawlers and meet neubawlers alike! Please allow me to heartily recommend poached eggs for breakfast–

riggssm (#760)

Sorry I didn't make it, got last min tix to the C's game … next year!? Or a late spring event?

Seconded on seeing rebawlers and meeting neubawlers (my two favorite words of the day!) And thanks to you, Garge, for the bourbon bawl(ers).

Bittersweet (#765)

@garge – thanks for setting it up, and for introducing me to Phipp's fizzes.

@riggssm – missed you! Go C's!
