The prices are steep, but honestly, you just can't get this stuff anywhere else in the civilized world. Rattlesnake, alligator, llama, kagaroo, ostrich. I think I saw bugs bunny in there somewhere. I haven't actually eaten anything there yet, but I had a blast walking around and checking the selection. The owner is really helpful, provided lots of information, but wasn't at all aggressive about selling me.
Decent sized liquor store, good location and good selection. Pretty much everything you need in a liqour store. The service is pretty friendly. They have some high brow items stocked and locked off to the side. Kind of cool to check out bottles of wine near a grand. If you need liquor and you're in Revere, this is pretty much the place to go.
I don't buy the top of the line stuff, so most stores have what I want. This place has excellent service and a great atmosphere to shop around and find what you like. The guys are all straight out the Godfather, look and talkwise, but their extremely nice and helpful (and knowledgeable). Plus there's a nice comfortable area to sit back and relax with your purchase if you like.
Seriously, this was the store I had planned to go to when I got into Harvard or MIT, except I didn't. Probably better off, I went down there randomly and there ain't much to right home about. It's in a relatively bad part of town, but nothing scary per say. Just a lot of low class wanderers. They have a good selection of cigarretts, but not much on the cigar front.
Please, stop patronizing those souless chains, like B&N and Borders. Elliott bay has an awesome selection of new and used books, good prices, great hours and a decent location if you're near the city. Plus it has something the chains lack CLASS. I think browsing for books is enhanced by a nice homey aesthetic like EBC. Go check it out.
So you wanna be a hipster? Here's the first stop on your way to the trendy top. Second hand stuff rules here, with a definite indie bent. If you ever wondered where those clicky, scenesters get their gear, wonder no more. They really do have some cool stuff at a relatively decent price. I got my current jacket there after my last one got stolen, and it was a good replacement.
It's no Vegas, but Muckleshoot at least attracts some younger folks on the weekends, so it can be an OK time. I'm not really a fan of Casino's outside of Vegas, they just don't have that festive atmosphere. The poker room is OK, but the wait tends to be long and the games are pretty tight. Worth a trip, but I wouldn't go too far out of my way for it.
The place used to be downright horrible when they first opened. It took a while before they actually figured out how to make the damn games move. Other than that, it's a pretty standard Indian Casino. Lots of old folks running around passing their social security checks over to the tribesmen. Their poker room has the worst dealers ever.
By far! If you come at the right time, people play like absolute maniacs. All the dealers from the other casinos play here. The dealers know what they're doing and the floormen know how to keep things working right. The place gets pretty smokey, but other than that, the atmosphere is quite open and bright for a card room. The food's OK, too.
This place definitely wasn't designed for beginners. It's ALL transition and tons of vert. There's a giant bowl in the middle with two sections and a giant clam shell. There's some 5-7 foot tranny all around the park and there's an extremely deep pool style bowl in the back. There are some true shredders at this place. It's only a buck to get in, but you have to wear full pads.
