Two Tuesdays ago was my birthday, and I decided to treat myself to a birthday bar crawl like I did in 2010. I started my adventure by getting off the subway at Park Street and walking over to J.M. Curley. There, bar manager Kevin Mabry seemed pretty excited about his abstraction of an new-fashioned Old Fashioned that just appeared on the menu called the In Fashion. Keeping the whiskey, orange slice, and sugar cube intact, Kevin replaced the bitters with Averna and the muddled cherry with a cherry-flavored beer.
