tapped (out)

Two sisters on a budget in Boston, one new bar every week.

Tapped in Boston started in the few weeks before Brittany was scheduled to move back to Boston - we lived together last summer but haven't really lived together since Alicia went to college. June 2, 2012 marks the first day of our grown-up lives together, although we refuse to be called grown up.

On a whim, we decided to start a blog. If we're going to go out, why not write about it? Being in Boston means countless bars and restaurants to explore. We've already seen a good share for young twenty-somethings, but this blog gives us even more reason to try new places and new drinks. And with our student and non-profit incomes, we're exploring Boston on a budget.

But what to name our blog? There was so much we wanted to convey: drinking beer or whatever we're in the mood for, trying new places in Boston, meeting new people and enjoying good company, and doing it all on a budget. We rejected too many names to list here, some okay and some terrible, including "Bright Lights, Beer City," "Broke in Boston: Beer on a Budget," and "Girls Like Beer Too." 
After a couple weeks of brainstorming, a friend suggested "tapped" - it can mean broke and obviously is what you do with a keg. "Tapped in Boston" had a nice ring to it, and with our tag line, we pretty much covered all the bases.

We're not experts on beer, wine, or any kind of alcohol, really. And we're not experts on Boston. But we're figuring out this city and we're gonna have a good time doing it.
