B is for sitting outside

J: So we are definately better at going to bars than writing about them. So I am going to try to catch us up. For B we went to a place called Boka. Crazy, crazy place. The interior was awesome with color changing lights on the walls and some very modern architecture. I also think there was some pretty modern furniture that made it seem as though two interior designers had tried to collaborate, but just kinda pushed their own stuff around, and somehow made it work. Why this hazy recollection on the inside you ask? Well that's because we ate outside. In the cold of November? I think it was November, more likely October though. Anyways there were no seats inside, but there were outside, and as it wasn't a particularly cold night, we braved the great outsoors and huddled under heat lamps. It would be a great place to sit outside at in the summer, or at least a time when you didn't need layers, although I am a weather whimp, so it really wasn't that bad. I drank a white peach cosmo ($9), which was quite tasty and we had the best crab cakes I have ever had. They were fantastic, really, really fantastic. I really want one now. So good, I highly suggest them. We also had our second foray into the world of truffle fries. Which were also good. They cost 5 and 3 dollars respectively. The waitresses were nice, although a little slow, granted they probably didn't want to go outside. Overall cheap food, exspensive drinks, or at least not half off or discounted, but for the food, definately worth it.

Happy hour from: Mon 3 pm-midnight and Tues-Fri 3-6 pm, 10 pm-midnight (drink specials and half off bar menu)
