    There also a new bar in Somerville called Mipe Ants.  Y'all should try that too.

    And Smash, does it have a friendly barkeep by the name of Heywood Jabuzzoff?

    I know an awesome place. You go half a block down the street and you'll see a Torino with no wheels on it. Inside that Torino is my cousin, Jackie. Tell him that you're my boy, and that you're lost. He'll make sure you get where you're going. You don't want to know from me. I'm not from this neighborhood. I'm from the west side of Chicago, here on vacation.

    I love Cambridge Brewing Co.  They allow dogs on their patio, too...  I used to work next door to this place and a co-worker brought his two Rotties.  It was chaos, but they didn't care...   And the food is pretty good there, too!

    As am I!  Now that I'm even FURTHER north of Boston than I was at the end of last week.  :-)

    Possible North Shore meeting places:

    The Tap in Haverhill -- brewpub, so fresh beer on the premises.  Also a deck overlooking the Merrimack River.  Bound to be crowded on a weekend, though it is often not too bad if you're there in the early evening.  (They have music later in the evening, so there's less of a crowd early.)  Other advantage --it would take absolutely NO convincing to get my DH to go -- he loves beer.  :)

    The Sea Glass in Salisbury -- about as northy and you can get on the north shore, but the setting is so gorgeous -- the restaurant is right on the beach, and they have spot lights on the surf, so even after dark the view of the crashing waves is mesmerizing.

    Bradford Tavern in Rowley.  I've heard mixed reviews of the food there (I haven't been there myself), but it's a tavern, which sounds about right for a boisterous LL group.

    There are loads of good places in North Andover, but I can't think of many with large bar areas.  Joe Fish is nice, though it would be too crowded on a weekend.  Palmer's in Andover is nice too, and the bar is large, but it also might be too crowded on a weekend -- either place on a Thursday might work.

    There's also Hardcover in Danvers -- haven't been there either, but I have heard the #1 advantage of that place is that the service is slow, which is good if you want to have time to talk and not get hustled out.  

    Okay, I can't be the only person with ideas -- I don't even get out of the house much, and I came up with a bunch.  C'mon people!  Thinking/Drinking Caps on!!

    EES, Palmers gets crowded on Thursdays at times.  They also have live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, so once that starts up (around 8:30pm) it's nigh on impossible to hear anyone.

    I've been dying to go to the Seaglass Restaurant - keep promising Mom to take her there; haven't gotten around to it.  Heard it's very good food and drink!

    In Newburyport, there's The Grog and David's Tavern.  The Grog could fit a relatively large group in the side restaurant area (if we were eating; otherwise, it's the bar area, and that *does* get crowded).  Not sure how David's could accomodate; their bar is fair-sized, but it does get a lot of regulars as well and we could overwhelm.

    The Tap is a great idea - especially since it's close to my workplace.  :-)

    LWhitt:

    I went to SeaGlass for my birthday and I loved it.  Food was great, and you can't beat the view.  They also have a Sunday brunch that I'm going to take my kids to soon.

    Newburyport has lots of great places, though they do tend to fill up -- especially in the summer months.  Last time I was at the Grog, the food was not too good, but for drinks and simple appetizers, it would be great.

    I'm waiting for JBar to chime in -- as another north-shorer, she ought to have some suggestions, too.

    The Essex River Cruises company offers little party festivals on the beach.
