It might seem silly for city dwellers to seek out nightlife in the suburbs, especially when it's taking place in a 250-year-old Colonial house, but you really can't judge a scene by its surroundings. The new Scarlet Oak Tavern is apparently the place to be in Hingham this summer, and when we arrived last Thursday night around 8, the bar area, which seats about 100, was mobbed with 40- and 50-somethings. There were polo shirts as far as the eye could see, and even a pair of salmon-colored shorts -- on a man -- but there was no denying it was a happening spot. The drinks were flowing, the pizzas and burgers were flying out of the kitchen, and the bar was packed all night. Who says the suburbs don't have it going on?
