Do your best to get to O'Malley's very soon, since it'll be closing by the end of January, 2003. Say hi to Red, and ask to see the George Harrison biography that mentions him.
Many people shy away from this true dive, but it's honestly the most unpretentious, real Allston experience to be found. The only true cross-section of the community of any local bar, not overwhelmed by youngsters until very late on weekends (and not really on weeknights at all). I don't know where these guys will go when this place closes. Even the Silhouette is a hipster bar by comparison.
