But when you get to the end of this, you’re going to say something embarrassing.
Something you would only say after taking your first look at Pier 6, the lobster-filled, nautical-tinged successor of Charlestown Navy Yard legend Tavern on the Water, hoping to soft-open this weekend.
Picture the old Tavern on the Water and its unobstructed views of the harbor. Impressive. Now picture looking at that same view from a much more handsome place. A place with new wooden decks (upstairs and down), antique fishing-boat spotlights and a custom mahogany bar with poles wrapped in old rope.
Your move: catching the sunset at the outdoor granite bar downstairs. Start with a dozen Island Creek oysters from the raw bar. Make a glass of something white happen. Maybe test out a new ascot. Maybe not. Point is: do your thing. Everything’s going to be okay now.
Bringing a group and passing some lobster Rockefeller around would also be an acceptable play. Take your pints over to a table in the white-walled private dining room with just-shy-of-360-degree views and let the fluke ceviche fall where it may.
Yes, saying “amazeballs” counts as embarrassing.
