Time Out for Alex!

backbar is back open! After a few day vacation to enjoy the incredibly successful Thirst Boston, backbar is back and supporting our good friend and former bartender: Alex Homans! Unfortunately about a month ago Alex was hit by a careless car while on his bicycle. He is fine, and recovering, but it will be at least a couple months before he will be able to work again at his new restaurant Fairstead Kitchen in Brookline. In an industry that doesn’t have a lot of insurance options or ways to get paid while not actually working behind a bar, sometimes you need friends to help you out. This week backbar is donating all of our proceeds from our drink of the week, a blue daiquiri with Bacardi rum to Alex in hopes of a speedy and care free recovery!
