We have more Irish pubs in this town than in all of Ireland [ed. note: probably not true], so any one of them in particular really has to do something special to get noticed. Atwood’s in East Cambridge does three special things: it frequently has live music, it has a great selection of craft beer, and it’s got a patio out back that probably looks much better than your backyard (no offense). The food is pretty standard bar stuff, but you’ll never regret grabbing a beer by the potted plants out back.
