    I'm assuming they'll be very eager to get up and running again. Your best bet is to call ahead and see if you can schedule one.

    Ignoring your snark, many in the city don't call for cabs. They go outside and hail them. Calling ahead for one was a tip as they'll be in high demand. In fact, I'd be calling now.

    sadly - we actually had not thought of it ... in austin we do actually have to call most of the time, i guess my travels have ruined it for me.

    we're calling ... we're calling. cabin fever has sunk in strong. vodka and beer supplies are low. the ballast point bloody mary mix is no joke though!

    see ... i can't stop talking. cabin fever.

    Anything else to do tonight? A few of us Staten Islanders are looking to get out of the hotel room!! Any word on some bars opening soon? Desperate.

    We're 20 minutes from downtown, looking to get to Hobo or CBC this afternoon. Planning to hit Sunset tonite too. Any updates on parking in the Cambridge area?
  11. Wish I had a snowboard and a snowmobile to tow me! It's cool seeing cross-country skiers out. Sounds like Cambridge is going to be bumpin'
  12. Just got word that Bukowski's is open! For out of towners on Tremont, it's not TOO bad of a hike for you.

    I'm at Hobo as well. Back right corner facing the bar, brown pullover. Sitting across from the gf. Come say hey.

    Unfortunately that list seems pretty off. There are Shorts beers on, but nothing nearly as exciting as that list looked.

    Patrick Initiate (0) Massachusetts Aug 13, 2007

    I'd ask about it. Maybe not all of it goes on at the same time or maybe some of the kegs didn't get there in time.

    Just returned from LH and there were 7 Shorts beers on tap earlier, all (I think) at $5 per 12 oz. A good time there for sure. Tons of other great stuff on tap as well including HF Edward.

    will the shorts still be available at lord hobo tomorrow? we tried to get over there today and then worried about getting stranded in cambridge with the limited cab situation.

    what it boils down to ... shorts? tomorrow?
  23. My understanding is that Lord Hobo couldn't put all the Short's beer on at once, so even if what they have on kicks they should be replacing it with something new. Between the gf and I we had the porter and pale ale, which were great, and the pumpkin, black ale, and saison, which were fine. Not that they'll be there tonight, but I also had the chance to talk to the Short's crew a bit and they seemed like cool guys. Hopefully they'll make it down again if/when EBF gets rescheduled!
