East Infection

The proprietors of Olive Branch Mediterranean Restaurant figured that good Middle Eastern eats, a hookah lounge, a full bar, and belly dancers weren’t enough to create an authentic and worldly experience, so they added other global flavors to their entertainment palette, including knock-your-socks-off DJs spinning world sounds of Africa, India, and the Caribbean and dance-oriented nights featuring live salsa bands. Ooh la la. Hit up the quaint spot for dinner and stay a while, as the night promises to be the most culturally enriching thing on Mill Avenue. Sorry, guys and gals, but the puke-stained floors at The Library and the stank at some of the other frat-tastic bars isn’t exactly our idea of “culturally enriching.”
