Store: Leavitt and Peirce. Mass. Ave across from the Yard. Ancient (for America, at least), old school, and one of a kind. You'll see what I mean when you enter. Trivia note: Crew and, back in the day, rugby practice schedules posted in the left window.

Restaurant: Muqueca in Inman Square. Brazilian. Good food. No BS.

Cafe: Cafe Pamplona on Bow Street. Cheap trip to old-school Europe.

Bar: For decades, Harvard Square has pretended to have some legit bars, but the actual, and not a little bit embarrassing, truth is that HS hasn't ever in modern times had what I regard as a REAL bar. Just sad for a place that's so blessed with legendary collegiate origins. If you're having a brewski emergency, maybe try the Plough and Stars in Central Square. Otherwise, leave the Square and hit Jacob Wirth or Doyle's in Boston.

Back in my day, we had the Grille (Crimson Sports Grille), notorious for letting in any child with a doctored Harvard student ID doctored on a laser printer. The bouncer Paulie was referenced in Good Will Hunting when Damon enters a bar and says hi to "Paulie". Rumor was that Paulie was related to somebody in the Cambridge PD which was why the place never got raided. In any case, it's been closed for years.

I think Shay's across the street on the east side of JFK is still there.

My favorite was Grafton Street on Mass Ave. Great place. Alas, no longer there either. I think it moved down the street to near where the Bow and Arrow was. Query whether that place is still there.

I'm sure there's plenty of places that have jumped up to meet the demand from thirsty students and faculty.
