Although I am generally quite lazy and a creature of habit, I went to two new (to me) bars this week. The first was Intermission Tavern, in the theater district. It was a cute place, and the food was tasty and reasonably priced, but the service was s....l....o.......w. So slow, that people at my table as well as the table next to us (yes, I was eavesdropping) cancelled drink orders because they took so long. In a location where most people are on their way to a show on a concert, Intermission Tavern had better learn to quicken its pace.
I had a much better experience at Delux, a funky little place in the Back Bay. It's definitely a hipster bar, but not annoyingly pretentious. Good drinks and good food, but small portions (for the food, at least). I will definitely go back. I have seen the future, and all I can say is "Go back."
Last night, I watched Trainspotting for the first time in ages. Ewan McGregor looks so young. I had forgotten how hot Sick Boy was. Curious, I looked him up online to see if he'd been in any other movies lately. Turns out his name is Jonny Lee Miller and he was married to Angelina Jolie for four years. Who knew? Lucky Angelina.
