About the Author
Luke O'Neil has been covering arts and nightlife in Boston for ten years, working for pretty much every publication in the city at one point or another. For years he wrote a popular column called Barcode in the Boston Globe, where he still writes about cocktails and the restaurant and bar scene. He currently pens a bar column called Thursty in the Boston Metro, and the Liquid column in Stuff magazine and has written about bars for Boston Magazine and Black Book. He's also a music critic, writing for Alternative Press and the Boston Phoenix, and was the music editor at the Weekly Dig for years. His days as a rock musician made him particularly well acquainted with the seedier delights of the dive bar. He's also extraordinarily handsome.
