On a little side trip to Boston, I decided to have a bit of fun in a game that I didn’t have much experience in. Of course, I had no clue what I should try, but then I came across Biddy Early’s.
This dive bar offered Keno, and that quickly became the game of the night. Keno isn’t unlike other games of chance. In fact, it’s got a few similarities to roulette. As I sat there and watched the random ball fly across the screen to land on whatever number the television felt was a good choice.
I felt a little lonely not having other players to go up against. Of course, two dollar beers can go a long way and eventually I was chatting it up with the locals. I won’t lie, I kind of adore the Bostonian accent.
I felt like I was talking to Mark Wahlberg the whole time. For a basic hole in the wall, the place provided company who, even though they did better in Keno than I, were well worth the trip.
