On Friday of last week, I had the joy of visiting the Boston Shaker in Somerville, Mass., a semi-new store-within-a-store that specializes in bar- and glassware, cocktail makings (everything but the booze, that is), and other fun stuff. I had a fun visit with proprietor Adam Lantheaume, and enjoyed a cameo appearance by Fred Yarm, of Cocktail Virgin Slut. Here’s a bit of a photo tour, for those who’ve never see the place. Forgive the blurriness of some of these photos. Also, if you’re a regular viewer of my Flickr stream, forgive the fact that you’ve already seen all these damn pics.
Proud, happy proprietor Adam. Say, “Hi Adam!”
Lovely pewter julep cups, made by a company in Connecticut. Support almost-local business! I’m hoping to add a couple of these to my home bar fairly soon.
Sterling-silver cocktail picks. At nearly a Benjy a pair, these ain’t coming home with me anytime soon.
Books ‘n’ more.
Bitters, and a lot of them.
Paraphernalia, muddlers, syrups, etc.
