When I'm up there, we usually end up at either the Cask or Kitty O'sheas cause we have friends that work there (even though I don't really like Kittys). I went to this place called the Middle East a few weeks back, it was a real hipster scene but still a good time.

In this post I determine that spend too much time at bars:

Favorite bars kinda change though. I mostly hang out in Allston/Brighton which is a huge hipster scene. I tend to frequent Our House. Great Scott is a cool hipster bar that has tons of live music come through there. The BU student bars are near there too (973, White Horse). Sunset Grill is right next door to that and they have a stupidly large number of beers on tap and in bottles. Next time you go to Boston you HAVE to try that.

I've been trying to venture out more by going down to Boylston St. where there's a bunch of good bars pretty much all along it, like Pour House, and I was at...Cactus Club (I think is the name) this weekend. Fantastic margaritas and I fell in love with the bartender. If you find your way to The Alley (by the movie theatre) theres a few bars tucked away that are...interesting. The Liquor Store (one of the bars) has a mechanical bull, so if you're feelin pervy you can watch girls ride it, but the drinks will cost you your first born child. At most of these bars its a good female/male ratio, but the dudes tend to get a bit aggressive. There's another called Seawater cafe (I think? it's right across the alley) which is a little bit more normal, and usually have some live music downstairs.

I went to a bar called The Prohibited on sat, which is sposed to resemble a speakeasy, including the moving bookshelf of a door you need to use to get in. That was pretty cool but there was no crowd that night.

Then there's downtown, like the Kitty O'Shea's, but that's kinda similar to The Liquor Store, loud music, crowded bar, have to wear shoes (no sandals). Places like that aren't really my scene. Ned Divine's is a good time down there. They break it up so once half is a live band and the other is loud club music. Other than that I don't frequent down there cause when you get out of the bar at 2 AM you're gonna fight tooth and nail for a cab, and could be stranded for hoooours.

I saw a show at Middle East a few years ago. It was pretty cool, I've been meaning to try to make it back, but I don't recognize most of teh bands over there and Cambridge can be a pain to get to from my apt.

There's more on like Tremont St. that I haven't really been to, but I'm gonna try to soon.


I've been to the White Horse, a buddy of mine used to live right down the street from there. And you're right, Cactus Club has great margaritas. I will definitely try to check out the Sunset Grill, I love trying new beers. I've been to the Beer Works a few times, but it's usually too crowded.


Although I live in North NJ now, I grew up in Boston and go out downtown whenever I'm back as I can crash at my parents since they live like 1/2 mile from Fanueil Hall. Personally, I think the Fanueil hall bars are all meh, but if you go to Broad St., The Place is good for bar/club scene and The Times and the Littlest Bar are good for that Boston Irish bar type place. Also the Barking Crab is fun for tourists.

I sure like the direction this thread is going and I hope you guys all get in to Fordham! Fwiw I like both the Gin Mill and Jake's Dilemma which are pretty close to Fordham Law.

Edited to say: My Uncle is a co-owner of Beer Works and used to be on at Sunset and I love both of those places. Definitely worth checking out!

I haven't been following. Why do we think people will hear today? Because this is when OS heard last year? And do we expect WLs to hear or people who haven't heard anything yet to hear? And has nygrrrl heard yet? when does PT start? in less than a month, doesn't it?

No -- PT starts in the fall. PT at Cordoza starts in May (which may be the cause of confusion).

Cardozo was indeed the cause for the confusion. Sorry! didn't mean to freak anyone out.

Why do we think people will hear today?
Because the admissions office has told multiple folks that they should hear something today, yesterday, or soon.

And do we expect WLs to hear or people who haven't heard anything yet to hear?
Not sure. Maybe. The admissions office has told other folks that they would start evaluating the waitlist after April 15. It is after April 15, but who knows. Some folks still haven't heard their initial decisions.

And has nygrrrl heard yet?
Don't think so.

when does PT start? in less than a month, doesn't it?
August. See above posts.

How do you find out you're off the waitlist? Hell, the only way I found out I was ON the waitlist was the status checker....
