Stop number two on the great Boston 4th of July SoCal excursion..
After a full night of hanging with several Boston/Cambridge BA's at the CBC (Hola everyone.. thanks again), I took advantage of the lovely summer weather and walked the 2 miles back to my hotel, right down the street from the venerable Bukowski's. Wandering in around 1am, the bar was half empty and the music was nice and loud.
Looking around this thing is a basic A train type of bar with a long row of black leatherette stools, a line of ice bins filled with bottles and a line of taps filled with the usual assortment of stella, boddington's and a line of things like the Mojo IPA, Harpoon IPA and Harpoon Summer, etc.
Service was actually cheerful given this place's reputation as a gruffy place.
Kitchen was closed by the time I got there, but several folks around me looked happy. Definately a little bit of a dive, but one with decent brew. That's always a good combination.

Great neighborhood spot! Love the bartenders and wonderful beer selection. I love the menu, as well. It gets hard to breath in there during sporting events, but any other night of the week you can get a delicious burger with tater tots and a stellar local beer for not too much money.
