Bean Town

July 28, 2011

A friend laughed at me when I told her I was nervous about my trip to Boston last year.  I has said that big cities make me nervous.  She said they made her “feel alive, especially New York” but that Boston was far different than New York.
I flew, with my friend Xanax, on Virgin America from LAX to Boston.  It was a surprisingly great flight.  It might have been because it was five hours of “me time” to read trashy magazines and to watch an age appropriate movie.

Modern Pastry
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, the right stuff.  I was in the city that birthed the New Kids on the Block!  I finally met up with my hubs at the baggage claim — he was flying in from Toronto.  Our first stop, besides the haunted hotel that we immediately checked out of, was Modern Pastry in the North End.  The place is itty-bitty and people lined the street waiting for a cannoli.  It was well worth the wait!  The best custard filled chocolate dipped cannoli we’ve ever had.  They had delicious candies and nougat too.  Oh-Em-Gee…I still dream about this place.

We did so much sightseeing and shopping.  Boston is truly a beautiful city – and completely walkable – it was beyond anything I had imagined it would be.  I fell absolutely in love with the historic neighborhood of Beacon Hill.  Town homes and adorable little stores.  I could seriously see us living there.
Crazy beautiful patina on the Longfellow Bridge.

We were fortunate enough to catch a Red Sox game too.  It was freezing cold and kind of magical to be in such a historic ballpark.  Now, my hubs is an Angels fan through and through so he wasn’t as impressed.  And don’t even ask him how he feels about Celtics!

I found a store that screamed “WENDY!”  It’s called Black Ink.  There are two locations and I saw it first in Cambridge while touring Harvard but it was too crowded to peruse the bins and shelves.  So I passed.  But then I stumbled across their second store near Beacon Hill.  See why I love that neighborhood?  Kooky little odds and ends, books, aprons, bags, and the coveted Bla Bla (I bought two!).

Black Ink

I just loved my visit to Boston and really hope to go back later this year again! Have you been?  What did you love about it?


Modern Pastry, Bla Bla Kids, and Black Ink don’t know me from any other consumer.  I just wanted to share the love.
