baseball fans must visit: fenway park. i saw the green monster. i had awesome seats in the the field box and almost got hit by a foul ball.
AWESOME! thanks new pal jeff who hooked us up with the tickets. also sang "sweet caroline" in the eighth inning. SO GOOOD! SOOOO GOOOOD!
feat of the day: freedom trail. it's a 2.5 mile red brick route to the historical spots of boston. i saw where the boston tea party started - old south meeting hall, paul revere's house and grave, mother goose's grave, the uss constitution and the final stop at the bunker hill monument. we sealed the freedom trail with 294 steps. that's right - i climbed the bunker hill monument. this is joe and i after the 2.5 mile trek.
we took a bunch of detours from the freedom trail - one being the fleet center.
star sighting of the day: dick vitale on newberry street. matt had the keen eyes. we weren't fully certain it was him UNTIL we saw him on tv with his grandson at the sox game that night.
best canoli hands down: mike's pastry. man, a bunch of bostonians told me about this hot spot for sweets. i was hoping that it was not the magnolia of new york - tourist trap and unsatisfying sweets. these canoli were sooo delicious. the perfect shell and the creme was not too sweet. they also keep fairly well overnight. i had one the next day and the shell was still crisp.
must pub to meet your future indie rock irish boyfriend: the field. there is a field in san diego that i never went to and the field in sf's north beach that closed shop. i miss that pub, so when we were headed for one in cambridge i was game. ladies of the boston area, i was literally surrounded by irishmen whipping out mgmt and we are scientists references. go there and thank me later.
