the dividend

The Last Hurrah. The hotel bar inside Boston's Omni-Parker was a political hangout in the 70s. It is steps from the state house so not hard to imagine.

Bit of an underhanded compliment coming here but the place is sort of hotel-carpet-uncool, but that makes it all the better. Never very busy, so makes a good bolthole.

With your drinks you receive an endless supply of warmed almonds, pistachios, cashews etc, i.e. dinner. If you order a martini you are left with the shaker and any remnants inside; as a southern friend calls it, the dividend. #vocab

A fine establishment. My wife and I stopped there on our 2nd date and have returned many times since.
