    I choose you, !Bulbasaur!!

    also, can we start at the pour house? that place is fantastic.



    ALSO also, once you have the actual schedule down, please MAKE SURE that someone calls the bars and lets them know, especially if the groups get bigger than 25 apiece.

    i was a part of santacon in boston before christmas and about a hundred santa clauses showed up at the 21st amendment and there was one bartender and one server. the entire time we were there they looked like someone shot their puppy.

    We know what we're doing here. AtlusParker has always been on top of getting notification to the bars as to what's happening. You know you're in good hands when one of the bars had Polyjuice Potion and Butterbeer available for us.

    Okay, take two on the pub crawl. Seeing as it is the farthest behind on membership, I shall enlist my liver into the service of team !Pikachu.

    Use it wisely.

    First time poster, first time PAX goer. So I choose you !Pikachu.

    Coincidently three of my friends who don't have forum accounts also choose !Pikachu, so I guess throw me down for a +3 if you could.

    Hey, can someone inform me as to the alcohol level in beer over there? people keep telling me i'll drink you under the table, but i assumed that alcohol levels would be as diverse as over here.
    and anywhere in boston that serves absinthe?

    Excellent, I feel quite welcome. As for the beer alcohol levels I'm curious about that myself. Even though I work at a Liquor Store up here in Canadia, most of the American brands are brewed by the local giants to local tastes.

    Also, apparently one of my friends DID sign up for the forum without telling me. So you can change one of my +1s to Salpedro. I feel my stat bonuses shrinking.

    Atlus hasn't revised the teams since your +3 post so you can still edit it to +2.

    Like anywhere else in the world, it all depends on the beer you drink. You'll find the standard variety of ales, stoughts, pilsners, etc, although you'll probably find a larger selection of "light" beers on tap here.
    I'm pretty sure that none of the local bars have absinthe.

    that kinda sucks. just bought myself a bottle of the 70% stuff and am slowly drinking my way through it. was hoping to throw some orders for absinthe cocktails at barstaff and see what's what.

    thanks for the word on the beers. i can't imagine it being far off the 4-5% stuff i'm used to anyway.

    You can try for absinthe, it's not illegal stateside anymore. Though not guaranteed, some of the trendier / hippier joints may have it.

    Depending on where we go, expect anywhere between 4 - 12 %, with the standard being ~4.5.

    Of course, being in Boston, I'd recommend checking out http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/35/ to see what you might like to try. Also I've heard good things about the Beer Works, though I have no first hand knowledge.

    A few of the local bars have absinthe, but the area around hynes isn't exactly what you'd consider high end bars ... They mostly cater to the college crowds. Deep Ellum in Allston, Eastern Standard in Kenmore, and Drink in Fort Point all have had Absinthe on the menu ... :)

    As for beer ... if you're willing to make a trip to Allston you can visit Sunset Grill - home of 112 beers on tap. It's a pretty happy place for a beer geek. The food is pretty decent too.

    Drinking isn't a mandatory if you're in a group. Last year we had "muggles", which is where your "if I so much as even smell alcohol I start wearing lampshades" and "I'll only have one beer but I'm really just here to hang out with people" were. They're also useful as group organizers, what with that whole sobriety thing (of course Ravenclaw made it to each bar just fine with me leading them, and that was after starting round one with a double shot of blueberry schnapps/Goldschlager, a bourbon and coke and a Cherry Potter...I'm amazed we didn't wind up in Bellevue).

    That being said, if you're certainly free to hop around bars showing off your duds to the groups. Free country and all that.

    Is it PAX <insert nearest future PAX here> yet?

    thanks for the info guys. if it means a trek to go find these bars, and they aren't part of the crawl (guessing they might not be? depends how far they are and how far we go i suppose) does anyone feel like joining me for a wander? i'm probably not signing up to the mystery tour so i'll have not much to do thursday daytime, and i don't fly out until tuesday so monday's clear too.

    Not sure seems squirtle is tough to find stuff in adult sizes. I am trying to design some squirtle attire (hat, shirt, etc) that fit someone like me. Though i am photoshop challenged. SO will see what happens with it as time is running out.
