The Scrawl on the Wall

6 months ago, and fine

If you can survive crossing a few dangerous streets on your way out of the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, Trinity Brewhouse is a decent place to both eat food and get rid of it before or after a game or concert.

You can’t get a Heineken, Blue Moon draft or Miller Lite at Trinity, but if you like specialty brews, this is the place. They’ve got a pretty wide variety of suds they brew themselves, which they off-load to various liquor outlets throughout the state. Never really got into the brewpub scene, but Trinity and a few others in the city seem to have a loyal following.

The problem with Trinity isn’t so much the beer as the food, which is pretty much standard bar fare. Commenters on Yelp and other sites all seem to have the same issue with Trinity – the restaurant offers wings at great prices, then has the nasty habit of running out a few hours before closing. Not sure if this is true all the time, but often enough to get singed on social media.

In warm weather you can sit outside, as long as you’re not bothered by an occasional panhandler, and when the manager is in a good mood he or she will ease overcrowding near the bar and open the downstairs area. But don’t hold your breath on that.

If you need to let loose and don’t plan to sit down and eat/drink, you will have to run a gauntlet. Walk in the front door and immediately go right. You might need to talk your way past a host or hostess, but you can do that by saying you want to sit at the bar. Keep going right, then when the bar ends, hook a left and the head is behind a false wall.

The men’s room ambience is not great – there are rolls of paper towels on top of the dispenser and on my visit the sink needed a little Formula 409. But the nuts and bolts were fine – the urinal was clean and the toilet had no issues. And the good thing is you can lock yourself in and grunt and grind to your heart’s content.

Not the Taj Mahals of men’s room, but more than adequate.
