After leaving my second locale on my birthday bar crawl, I headed down Mass Ave and over the bridge into Cambridge. Once in the heart of Central Square, I considered my options. I was not sure if my birthday celebration state was proper for Rendezvous or Craigie on Main once the last of Clio's libations had entered my blood stream. I was tempted to visit Derric at Green Street and order a Peanut Malt Flip in order to get a laugh, but I figured that a small breather would be best. Therefore, I continued my walk from Commonwealth Ave all the way to Inman Square on the way home to Winter Hill. When I was passing by Trina's Starlite Lounge, I peeked in the window to the parlor and spotted Emma Hollander at the stick and a few open seats at the bar. At that point, I knew that I had found my third destination for my crawl, and I gave Andrea a call to invite her to join me (she had been working at the Boston Shaker all day).
