Have you tried a Scorpion Bowl yet, Sarah? Hey have you been to Hong Kong yet for a Scorpion Bowl? Hey Sarah you need to go try a Scorpion Bowl!! etc, etc, etc.... I think that since moving to boston, besides people telling me that I am going to freeze, this would be the second most mentioned thing to me, so I guess Scorpion Bowls are up there with the Red Sox in this city!!! At least according to how often I've heard about it! This venue is supposedly not as cool as the one in Boston, but for being closer to my house, I'm down. The upstairs is the bar, downstairs is the restaurant, and my one pet peeve, is they do not have vents on their AC vents, and we were all FREEEEEZZZZZING!! If our Scorpion Bowls had any less alcohol in them, they probably would have frozen over! And you ask what a Scorpion Bowl is? Well it is a giant bowl full of about 7-8 shots of premixed alcohol and fruity juice, served with a couple REALLY LONG straws and plastic animals like a giraffe, elephant, monkey and a mermaid were thrown on top. Random right? I would think little plastic scorpions would have been thrown in, but I guess that would probably gross customers out. BUT it is pretty tasty and definitely packs a punch! We got a pu pu platter too, but honestly? it was just fried and greasy....not so great....the spring roll tasted way way over fried, and the won tons just leaked oil....so next time we'll pass on that and focus on the scorpion bowl

say it isn't so................I was leaving sway the other night and could have sworn there is a new building built on top of the ear......just soo wierd to have this institution built in 1817 with a brand new condo residence on top of it?!? You can feel the history at this bar. Belly up for a beer - (don't even think about ordering a swanky cocktail here). Brunch is surprisingly good - get the irish breakfast.
