  1. I wrote a nice note to the author in feedback asking to remove Beacon Hill from the “stay away” neighborhoods.

  2. Oh fer cryin’ out loud! Admittedly, there’s nothing to do in Beacon Hill but whenever I have out-of-town friends visiting they want to be taken on a Columbia City or Georgetown pub crawl. And it’s always a blast! It kills me that Angie’s landed on a “dive bar” list, like it’s scary or something. When my friend Mike was here from SF, we had a CC night and the best part of it was Angie’s where Mike bought a 5-pound bag of smoked salmon for $10. Everyone in the bar was walking around smiling that night, holding a bag of salmon.

  3. I don’t think Beacon Hill needs to be “avoided” at night, but what is there really to do or go? Beacon Pub? Saigon Nice? That’s about it. Georgetown and Columbia City have much more to offer at night and that’s were I take my out-of-town guests.

  4. I don’t think anyone thinks Beacon Hill is a big time tourist destination, but the context of the article was that Beacon Hill should be avoided for reasons of safety, not for reasons of, well, boredom. :)
