Back From the (Mostly) Dead

Anyone who was familiar with the Cambridge bar scene couldn’t help shedding a few tears last summer when the Plough and Stars, the venerable (1969) pub beloved for its old-fashioned charm and soccer riots, announced it would be closing. Well, for everybody sick of pricey “American tapas” and appletinis, the time has come to dry those eyes (Irish or otherwise), because the Plough is back! Ok, ok, it’ll be back in March sometime, but it’s heartening to know that gentrification and skyrocketing Boston rents can’t keep everybody down. Somewhere out there, the people still want to drink Guinness, listen to great local music, and get whiskey poured on them when Ireland blocks a corner kick. With St. Patty’s Day around the corner, what more could you ask for?

It's Back, Baby!

    Lunch at the Plough is one of life’s great pleasures.

    A Boston post! Outstanding. Can we get more than one a week?

    This is why I read metblogs, but this blog doesn’t get a lot of posts…

    Agreed. As a Bostonian currently living in San Francisco, it’d be cool to get more ‘on the ground’ info postings. Like this one. That said, what a crime if the Plough were to disappear and be replaced by some swanky faux-hip meatmarket scene.
