Where to Find Cougars in Boston

5/23/2008 11:13:00 AM
This is courtesy of Boston Magazine. They have an article this month (May Issue) entitled: "On the Prowl with the Cougar Hunters." I had never heard the term 'cougar' before until the episode of How I Met Your Mother where Barney hooks up with Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman....

Apparently, it's a burgeoning um .. pasttime/occupation. Here are some of the most notable quotes from the article:

"The women here are looking for one of two types: old and rich or young and handsome," he says, taking an order for a cosmo. "And if it's just a one-night thing, they'll take young and handsome every time."

Rosa does paralegal work and plays a lot of high-stakes poker—both of which he makes sound like side ventures. His real gig, he tells me, is "banging older chicks who pay for my stuff." I laugh. He clears his throat. He's not kidding.

So where does the article tell you to look for cougars in Boston? Here's the list:

Wednesdays - Warren Tavern in Charlestown
Thursdays - Abe & Louie's
Fridays - Grill 23
Saturdays - Jurys

A couple other places mentioned in the article were: Azure and City Bar at the Lenox Hotel and the Bristol at the Four Seasons.

    The famous Jon Chino recommends Clink at the Liberty Hotel.

    They call him the Lion King there.

    A co-worker of mine was talking about City Bar at the Lenox Hotel in Copley.


    The Rumba bar at The Intercontinental has their fare share of them as well.

    Someone doesn't get out much in the pop cultural world - cougars are old news. Sadly, I'm neither old and rich or young and good looking. Dammit!

  5. Dan Dan Said,

    Now, I'm wondering if this article will become a self-fulfilling prophesy. Will cougars and the men chasing them start going to these places more often because of the article? I think so...
