I found a list of 10 beer bars, so I'm going to narrow it down based on tater tot availability.

The Sunset Bar & Grill in Allston has an aggressive beer list (pdf). I would guess there are 300+ beers, many of them weird. Don't know about the tot sitch.

Sounds good to me, but would people actually go to Allston? I totally would, but would other people?

Oh shit they have curly fries. Tater tots are dead to me now

I'm probably down because my family is ditching me for the week starting that morning. I checked 'maybe' because I'm the fickle sort who might get caught up in something or suddenly decide "I don't feel like dragging my ass to Allston."

I am significantly less enthusiastic about Allston - I'm not sure if it's any better, but there's also Sunset Cantina on Comm Ave by BU which I've found to sometimes be less of a madhouse - but I'm most likely in, what with all the closed beaches and all.

Me either. Straight shot down Mass Ave. I'm no longer a maybe. I might even take the 77 bus because that's how I roll.

I'm going to Vermont on the 16th, drinking weird beers up thar. I think llamas may be involved. As llamas trump tatertots, and since I checked and Vermont is staying open on Saturday, I will not attend this. However, if this turns out to be a great success and will be continued, I would attend a future Cambridge Saturday Afternoon Weird Beer and Tater MeFi extravaganza.

Especially as I won't have to swim in the Charles.

Yeah, I didn't think people would come in to Boston. And maryr's right, the Sunset seriously is a mad-house and too damn loud, esp. on weekends. I mentioned it because it does have the most insanely complete beer list I've ever seen. If you ever manage to be in Allston at 2:00 PM on a weekly (yeah, I know, unlikely), then you should definitely check it out. The bar staff I've had were knowledgeable and very willing to pour tastes.

I'll see if the Ferry across the Charles is running that Saturday.

(In re: CurlyFries. Yeah, Sunset has plain, cajun, sour cream and chive, and sweet potato. They're not the most amazing fries I've every had, but they do their job.)
