The Drink, the first of the three spots that Paul Piciocchi, owner of Tryst, is putting into the former home of Alto at 1320 15th Street, will hold its grand opening tonight, with free Coors Light from 6 to 7 p.m., and other deals through the weekend, including a free shot toast at midnight both tonight and tomorrow, and free Sam Adams Light from 6-7 p.m. tomorrow.

Look for Rock & Rye, the gastropub, to open December 4, with the Mix, a music lounge, coming a week after that.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
