Let's go to BOSTON!

Sorry I've been a bit MIA lately. Besides having some huge life changes (new job!) I also went home for a week to visit family in New York and then took a bus up to Boston to hang out with some of my favorite people from college. I don't think I've been back to Boston since 2008 and part of me really missed the city, almost to the point of craving it. When I found out that A) Steve had never been to Boston and B) Belle and Sebastian were playing there July 9th (with Yo La Tengo opening, no less!), it was a no-brainer. Here are some of our favorite phone photos from the trip!
The Miracle of Science bar was one of my favorite places to grab a drink after work. The menu is written like the periodic table and I love how tiny and triangular this place is!
We visited the deCordova museum and sculpture park. This is one of the most magical places I've ever been and I used to go about once a year back when I lived in Boston. Some pieces have changed, but some of my favorites stayed the same!
 Shot of a bell looking toward Boston from the Brandeis campus!
Not every college has a beautiful castle that serves as a dormitory. The outside looks great, but inside is a poorly designed mess with tiny walkways and rooms that make no sense. It honestly looked a tad bit abandoned... I hope they keep it in good shape!
 Matt is secretly a monkey!
 Just good old George Washington wearing a Bruin's jersey. Too bad they lost!
 Boston Harbor!
Steve had his first cannoli from Mike's Pastry in the North End. Mike's is hands down the best Italian bakery I have ever been to. Poor Steve, every cannoli he eats from now on will pale in comparison.
 The Public Garden is beautiful with all their elegant willow trees!
Boston is a really pretty city, but Boston City Hall might be the ugliest building of all time. Here is me frowning because it makes me so upset. Brutalist architecture at its finest.
 The Boston Massacre happened right here. 
 44 pound lobster!
Belle and Sebastian!


  1. I haven't been to Boston since a teenage family vacation there, I want to go back and see some of this stuff, esp. the sculptural park! Also, Belle and Sebastian with Yo La Tengo opening? DREAM. BILL. Lucky duck!

  2. I think the last time I went to Boston I was a weeeee kid. I need to make a trip up soon. The architecture is something I love from old cities. That bar sounds so neat and I'm glad you got to see Belle and Sebastian! Sounds like fun time.

  3. I have never been to boston, but have always wanted to (mostly because a childhood obsession with New Kids on the Block has given me a soft spot for a hefty Boston accent). Now I know to definitely go get a shit ton of canolis and stear clear of ugly architecture!

  4. Such nice pictures! And you look so good! I've never been to Boston, but I would like to go there.

  6. I'm completely enamored with the 44 pound lobster and am going to Google him RIGHT NOW.

    (Mostly to distract myself from jealousy concerning the show. I'd KILL to see that lineup, wow! How was the show?)

  7. These are such great photos! What a fun trip and now I realllly want a cannoli :)

  8. You guys are too cute! That sounds like an amazing trip. Seeing Belle and Sebastian with Yo La Tengo together would be so cool!
