Drink, Craigie On Main, and Eastern Standard are among the bars included in BlackBook’s list of Boston’s “Top 10 Bars for Expertly Mixology” (sic). While any list that singles out Franklin Cafe’s Ward Eight is to be commended, it’s hard not to wonder why Hungry Mother didn’t make the list below. And for that matter, what’s Sonsie doing on a list in 2009? Best people-watching, sure, but expert mixology? What do you think? Did BlackBook get it right?

• Eastern Standard
• Craigie on Main
