Two Mondays ago, we had dinner at Eastern Standard after I my DJ set. The drink that Andrea had was one that I had read about in Josh Childs' Boston.com column a few weeks ago. Josh described how the hot drink was created by Eastern's Bobby McCoy as a riff on the Tom & Jerry. Instead of taking a Christmas carol angle, Bobby went punk rock with a tribute to Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen. Andrea's that night was made by bartender Seth Freidus.
