Mark and Dave test Murphy's Law in South Boston...

Inspired greatly by Anthony Bourdain's recent "No Reservations" special about Boston and outlying areas my son in law David and I went deep into South Boston to check out a couple of legendary neighborhood bars on a recent sunny Friday afternoon.  One was the justifiably famous Murphy's Law on Summer Street.  Interestingly enough, we were the only people in the bar even though it was well into the afternoon on a Friday in Boston.  This kind of thing makes it hard to take the tempature of a place but we were glad to have a couple of shots of Irish whiskey and we walked around the surprisingly stylish South Boston neighborhoods to clear our heads and soak in some of the rare sunny weather during May in the northeast.  A nice bit of trivia is that key parts of the film Gone Baby Gone were shot here and a framed poster is prominent as you enter the space.
