Okay so let’s get into this Boston recap! If you remember from this post, I grew up right outside the city about 20 minutes east. I don’t have my accent anymore but I do love hearing it when I go back. We were celebrating Marks belated birthday and he wanted to go to the Sox/Yanks series. We got in on Thursday and let me just tell you I discovered this after the fact but there is a now a subway/bus system that takes you to Logan and it is super convenient! I don’t remember the “silver line” growing up but it takes you right into Logan. I highly recommend it for anyone traveling to Boston. That way you avoid the cab situation we had on Thursday. No joke our cab driver was driving 30 mph. So slow that minivans were passing us through the tunnel. The minute we got to the backbay I told her (oh yes it was a woman) to stop so we could get out. She then called me “a very rude person” and we walked the rest of the way. So next time take my advice and use the silver line into the city.
We stayed at the Loews Hotel
in the Back Bay. Amazing location! We walked or hopped on the T/subway for everything. Got the hotel from a priceline deal. The front desk girl sent us to Parish Cafe
for lunch….it was just okay. I think they had a racket going on because they sent our other friends who were meeting us there and another couple that we met from Florida as well who were dining outside. The couple was so sweet and were telling us all about their honeymoon in Sandals which was great but ended up being like a cruise because you run into the same people everywhere……wouldn’t you know we ran into them everywhere. Like even in Fenway but they were really cool so it was totally fine ;-)
Thursday night we met B
and her husband and Christina
at the rooftop bar at Rattlesnake
for some drinks. Really cool spot on Boylston street. Both girls are just as gorgeous and sweet in real life as in blogging land. So like when are we organizing a blogger vacation? Florida? Bahamas? Where do you think? The boys are so well trained. They both asked us on multiple occasions if we needed pictures. Why yes we do!
From there we went to Giacomo’s
in the South End where they actually take reservations vs the North End where they don’t. Even though they took them it was still some time before we sat down but it was worth it……look at this monster. Insider tip just like a lot of places in Boston. Cash only.
Saturday we headed out to the Seaport area to the Harpoon Brewery
. Such a great area they are really building up!
After the very long wait we headed over to Legal Harbourside
. The most gorgeous 4 story building overlooking the water. I could have sat there all day!
Then we headed over to James Hook and Co
for the ultimate lobstah roll (cash only again
I got to hang with this buddy.
Then we headed over to Fenway to watch the Sox/Yanks. Terrible seats right? ;-)
Saturday we woke up it was a little rainy. I was suppose to head to a Barre class but……. let’s just say the 7 am didn’t happen. I did a little bit of shopping.
Absolutely loving this new Alex and Ani stack
. It doesn’t have any charms. It is just a stack of delicate gold bands. Pretty much obsessed with this and my new delicate gold bracelet
from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.
We eat some cupcakes….because that’s what we do.
Then headed to the game. This round was in the EMC box with all you can eat and drink….which we took advantage of.
Somehow after the game we ended up at a little dive bar on Newbury and got to see B again!
Sunday was a quick day because our flight was early……originally. After we sat on the runway for an extra two hours. Home was very much welcomed. There were so many more photos but I definitely photo bombed y’all enough for today!
Now go and vote
so I can leave y’all alone. How was your weekend? Have you been to Boston before? What was your favorite part? xoxoxo
