So, I got lucky! While finally doing a proper unpack and going through random receipts and papers that were crumpled in my bag, I found GOLD! If you missed my last post about Eastern Standard in Boston , I didn’t have the mental capacity to remember what our last two drinks were, and therefore included nothing but a picture of the drinks in that post.

At Eastern Standard things started getting a bit blurry, but I will do my best here. First thing is first. I am stating right now that Nicole (Last name unknown) was awesome and should be high fived by everyone that visits the Bar.

Clio is the restaurant within the Eliot hotel in Boston. The brains behind the bar at Clio is bartender Todd Maul.

I have had to split our second night out in Boston into multiple posts here, just because we ate at Lolita and it was such a beautifully decorated room, it required some extra photo credits! (See pics of chandeliers and toilet below) We also powered through the rest of the night at B&G Oyster, Clio and Eastern Standard which you will find in very-near-future posts.
As soon as we were seated at our black table with red roses and red glowing chandeliers, Lolita presented us with a Grapefruit-mint Granita, served atop of smoking dry ice, which some may think to be a gimmick, but I can only say that it worked wonderfully and it was perfect to perk us up from the heat outside. (Did I mention we decided to make this an all-walking night!) Read more
