"Mad Men" Nights at Noir

I have been an avid fan of “Mad Men” for a while. I really fell in love over the summer when I was house sitting in Brookline at a place that had On Demand. I watched the entire first season in two days. It’s smart, methodical, and unapologetic. I didn’t think I could love it more until I experienced it the way I did last Sunday night. My friend came in from NYC for the weekend, so she and I headed to Noir, the lounge at the Charles Hotel to attend “Mad Men Sundays. The cherries on top were the fabulous vintage dresses we picked up at Poor Little Rich Girl in Davis Square.

The lounge itself is very retro: very dark and with deep red accents. They serve lots of drinks in martini glasses. However, they do have a very modern HD projector and cable. At 10pm, the projector screen came down and everyone there turned their attention to the show. I have never enjoyed an episode more: in a vintage 60s dress sipping a gimlet sitting the bar.

So if you love “Mad Men” or have never seen it, experience it at this bar. I have to work tomorrow, so I’ll have to miss it, but you should definitely check it out and let me know what you think.

    Hello Lauren
    Davis is one of my favorite walkaround spots in the Hub. I’m glad you found what you were looking for at Poor Little Rich Girl but I was disappointed when I was there. Perhaps next time you can hold your nose and check the racks at Goodwill up the street. If you dig, (like I do) you can sometimes find pretty good stuff. Cheep. Though lately the finds aren’t as good. The place has had a staff change. The clerk wouldn’t give me details but the entire (mostly female) staff was let go. Oh my. I smell a scandal but like I said, I couldn’t get details.

    Another favorite is McKinnon’s Market in Davis. I love the black olives. The owner cures them with his own concoction of olive oil, oregano and garlic. Yummmy! Also try the seafood salad. Again I say Cheep. If you get a chance, check out my blog. barbie
