Where Neptune never sleeps!

Hi there, I’m Aron. And I would be super thrilled if you would let me join the FOoM!

I’m very active in the Boston cocktail scene (though not as active as I used to be, having moved further away from the city), and I’m sure (I hope?) folks might maybe recognize me.

Happy to go through any Trials and Tribulations of the Tourist in order to earn my fez ;)

I have a great friend in Marshfield.

Privateer is 100% my jam. Queen’s Share is easily amongst the best rum I’ve ever tried. And the barrel-proof white rum has more flavor than it has any right to possess.

I’ve also got a bottle of fifteen year Caroni that is one of my prize possessions.

As far as cocktails go, they may come and they may go, but the daiquiri will always rule my heart. It is my alpha and omega.

Aloha! I heard that y’all have a new tiki bar up there. Well, at least a bar serving tiki drinks.

A couple actually. Highland Fried over in Cambridge has fired up with fried chicken, biscuits, barbecue, and..... tiki cocktails. Go figure.

Meanwhile over in the Boston financial district Tiki Rock is now open with "Polynesian inspired food and cocktails" ... the cocktail menu looks pretty good actually.

Highland Fried is EXCELLENT. I am very sad about what happened to the Volcano Room (the volcano no longer lights up when it erupts), but the food is uniformly excellent, as are the Tiki drinks.

Haven't been to Tiki Rock. But I need to change that!

We enjoyed Tiki Rock. A bit of a meat market vibe later in the evening on a weekend but they started serving lunch recently so I would hope that's better. If you like people watching it can be entertaining.

Food menu is limited but good. The coconut fried rice was awesome. Cocktails were well done, I thought they were better than Highland Fried and it was a direct comparison because we went directly from Highland Fried to Tiki Rock on the same evening.

Alrighty, I’ve gotta go pour beer for Lowell Winterfest’s Craft Beer Showcase, but I’ll be back later to answer all of the questions I missed.
