Book from Luke O'Neil: "Boston's Best Dive Bars: Drinking and Diving in Beantown"

A Boston-area journalist has written a book on some of the most interesting bars in Beantown.

Luke O'Neil, a writer whose resume includes writing for the Boston Globe, the Weekly Dig, the Boston Metro, the Boston Phoenix, Stuff Magazine, and other publications, has a forthcoming book called Boston's Best Dive Bars: Drinking and Diving in Beantown, which highlights 100 drinking establishments in the city. The book will focus on down-and-dirty places that are frequented more by locals than visitors to Boston.

The final release date is not quite set yet, but it is possible that Boston's Best Dive Bars: Drinking and Diving in Beantown could be out by late April (we will post updates here as we get them).

[May 4 update: According to the Amazon site, the book has been released and is in stock.]

[May 10 update: A book release party for Boston's Best Dive Bars: Drinking and Diving in Beantown is being held on May 24 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at T.C.'s Lounge on Haviland Street along the western edge of Boston's Back Bay. It is a public event, so if you would like to go, information on the party can be found at this Facebook link: Book Release Party -- Boston's Best Dive Bars: Drinking and Diving in Beantown]

Looking forward to this... we're always searching for a good dive bar in Boston, especially during the heavy tourist times, like around the Boston Marathon or graduation.

Cheers,
