    One Sweet Show
    Well, I survived ... barely. It was quite the weekend in Boston, here's the illustrated story:

    The Welshman and I arrived in Boston around noon, dropped our stuff off with a friend of his we were staying with, and headed out on the town. Our first stop? 21st Amendment on Beacon Hill.



    And it was there that our first two beers were had while watching the beginning of the Sox game in Chicago. Perhaps it was a bad idea for me to start drinking at 1:30, knowing that I was going to continue on through the night. But at the time, that didn't really occur to me.

    Soon after the bar we headed to Boston's famous North End. While I was in college I was OBSESSED with Bovas Bakery, which, no matter how hard you argue, I will always think makes better pastry than Mike's.



    And let's just say I was really effing excited to be at my old college haunt:



    So after that brief respite from the alcohol consumption, clearly we needed to get back to the bar.



    So off we went to The Pour House, another college tradition of mine, where shots of SoCo and Lime and a few rather large beers were had. At this point, it's around 4:30, there's still a lot of night ahead of us ...

    More to come later since Blogger is having a problem with photos at the moment ...

      Sure, visit Boston and don't even call me. That's it, you're off the christmas card list.

      :p

      wow, better than mike's? that IS nearly heresy! :) however, i've never had bova's, so i refrain from judgement.

      I lived on Boylston Street a summer after college and LOVED the Pour House! One of my fav. Boston bars!
