last night for my birthday, charlie and i met some friends at the commonwealth skybar.  the new restaurant and skybar opened in september as has been super busy since day 1.  the hostesses were super cute and friendly when we walked in and directed us to the back of the restaurant and up the stairs to the skybar.  the rooftop bar was warm and open.  i really liked the set up and feel of the bar area.  the skybar offers a varied selection of wines and bubblies.  they only offered about 6 or 7 different beers.  sadly, none of the beer offerings were in the lager category.  they also serve cocktails but don’t have a printed cocktail menu.  one of my friends had a pineapple upside-down cake martini and another had a lemon tarragon martini.  they had to ask the bartender for options and recommendations.  the bar also offers an assortment of appetizers and small bites – truffle fries=yum!  fingers crossed the bar will add more beer types and we will become frequent visitors.  i can’t wait to try the restaurant as well.  word is they have lobster macaroni and cheese…
