Location: 15 West Street Boston http://www.maxanddylans.com/ Running errands one day in Boston, it was inevitable that our hunger pangs would set in. We were able to scope out a couple of places finally deciding upon Max & Dylan’s. It may have had something to do with the quaint bookstore beside it, The Brattle Book Shop, … Continue reading

Overdraught Irish Pub


Location: 156 Front St W., Toronto Overdraught is what I like to consider a hidden gem of an Irish pub, situated underground right between Joe Badali’s and Canyon Creek Chophouse.

They don’t serve food at the pub, but bags … Continue reading
