Drinks while waiting for Neptune
The "plan" is to get to Neptune Oyster Bar pretty much at 5pm this Thursday. If we fail and get there later and the wait is an hour or so, where do people go to wait and grab a drink? And...once you get "the call" how long do they give you to get there? I mean if you've just ordered a drink, do you have to chug it and go?

Me and my date grabbed drinks at Rabia's right down the street. The place was empty and had a decent bar. I also missed the call from Neptune, and walked down there about 15 minutes later. They put me at the next available table
I usually head to Goody Glovers which is on the corner of Salem.As long as you keep it simple(beer,wine,highball)it's a decent Irish style bar.Neptune generally calls in half their estimated wait time in my experience.

The choices really close by are kind of sucky. The least bad of the bunch is Bacco. When I want a real cocktail in the North End, I head to the bar at Lucca or Prezza.

I go to Assaggio on Prince street, it's only about 2 blocks away and they serve massive martinis that hold me over until dinner. I'd say its respectful to return for your table 5-10 minutes after they call you. So CHUG!
