Sloooow service at Gin Mill
I'm going to start a running feature in the nightlife column where I measure the time between when my rear hits that barstool and when I have a beer in front of me.
Now I'm just trying to figure out a name for it.
The beer-o-meter? Hmmm ....
I thought up this idea while waiting for a Peroni at the recently refurbished Gin Mill on Boston Street last week.
I had a lot of time to think about stuff like that ...
because it took a good 10 minutes for me to get a drink.
This was on a Wednesday. There were a couple dozen people in the place, which looks fantastic, by the way. There are tons of beers on tap and the new decor is swankier but still tasteful.
But all of that means little if the service isn't good. And there were three -- three -- people behind the bar. Sigh.
