Sunday night was my first date in more than a month: that in and of itself was noteworthy.
But when my date suggested a Southie dive bar and we ended up at Croke Park/Whitey's, I learned there is a place in my neighborhood where you can buy 2 pints of beer, together, for 5 bucks.
Yes. This perfectly-poured Guinness cost 3 dollars.
(My date is drinking a pint of Rolling Rock. Which, as you guessed, was $2 a pint.)
The second, poured by a second bartender, was equally masterful. For this round, we bought a handful of mixed nuts out of a vending machine for 50 cents. There were no napkins nearby, so we improvised.
Maybe it is THIS place I should stop into on my way to work every morning, instead of Dunkin' Donuts. It's certainly less expensive.
