Kind of Blue

It’s summer, obviously, and barely anything sounds good to drink. Not chilled wine, totally false on beer, and definitely negatory on the whiskey flask that’s hibernating in a sports-coat pocket. The only thing that sounds appetizing is a chilled martini, but that’s serious damage to the bank account. Except on Thursday nights at Blue Martini Lounge. The spot offers retro-priced martinis of the Barcadi and Grey Goose varieties until close of business during Rewind Thursdays. The drinks are even more tip-back-able when Rock Lobster takes the stage at 7:30, followed at 11 with DJ Mendez’s vintage tracks.
Thursdays, 7 p.m.-2 a.m., 2010
