ABOUT THE BOOK: Anyone who has spent time at Harvard or in Cambridge will instantly recognize the many familiar names of eating and drinking establishments in this book. But few know the myriad of truly fascinating (and often little-known) stories behind them. For example, Emile Durzi, who owns Algiers, has lived in a number of exotic places — but has never visited Algiers. The owners of Grendel's Den went (with Laurence Tribe) all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to obtain a liquor license. That iconic German restaurant, The Wursthaus, was owned by an Italian immigrant. This light-hearted account not only rekindles warm memories of college days, but also serves up delicious historical tidbits about Harvard's favorite hangouts. Written by Harvard alumnus and historian Sean O'Rourke '49, this is a co-publication of Harvardwood Books and Unlimited Publishing LLC.
