Two Thursdays ago, I made my way down Mass Ave after my shift at Russell House Tavern. That night, Nic Mansur and Matt Schrage were tending the bar. I requested from Nic the Black Arrow from the menu which described how "proceeds go to equipment for Drapers & Eagle Strikers Soccer Teams." Matt filled me in on the details of how Gary and Avery of Central Kitchen and Brick & Mortar were traveling in Jamaica and decided to give back to the people, and they asked Matt to created this drink in tribute. For a name, he dubbed it the Black Arrow after Gil Heron's nickname. Gil was born in Jamaica and he became the first black player for the Scottish Celtic team; he was also father to musician Gil Scott-Heron.
