Another great visit to Boston is underway!!
Of course Matt had some say in the sightseeing since he missed last year’s trip, so first stop: Harpoon!
The format of this tour was “all you can drink’” in two 15 minute intervals. We drank all we could!!
Well, actually I didn’t I handed off a lot of my pours after a sip or two so I could try another one. We did a lot of sharing too. My favorites were the UFO White (orangy!) and the Blonde Bock (a special)
I probably had the equiv. of a pint or a pint and a half at the very most?
After our tour we were surprisingly not too tipsy We went home to change before meeting Lauren, Tina + Mal for a light dinner before the blog meet-up.
We decided on b.good, with a motto of Real Food fast!
Since we had appetizers at our blog event, I ordered a salad for dinner – the Southwestern with corn, avocado, beans, chicken, tomatoes and BBQ sauce.
Kanz got a veggie burger!
And Matt ordered sweet potato fries for the table, which were baked and sooooo good!!!! I had about 5
Awesome Tina organized a group event at Vinalia Restaurant + Lounge downtown. We had a group of 22, and had a fantastic time!
I ordered a glass of white wine (I was thirsty more than anything!). I finished it pretty quickly but was fine with water for the night – and a sip of Elina’s fabulous red!
Then the food started to appear!!!!
Pizzas, calamari, nachos and mussels!
I did a good bit of nibbling tonight, mostly because the food just screamed “eat me!!” coming out complimentary! I had probably 2 slivers of pizza, some crust, ~5 mussels and a few bites of nachos. I never felt full, but I also feel like I did eat too much overall since it was pretty rich. The food was great though, and tasted good!
We ended with a group photo, of course! Thanks to all of you ladies who came tonight! It was wonderful to meet you all, and I wish we’d had more time to talk one on one. Hope to see you all Summit Weekend too!
My feet HURT!! I don’t mine walking around cities at all, but I do not do well in heels – large or small. We’ve got a few sprinkles outside now, but we’re hoping it clears up before the morning.
I’ve almost been up for 24 hours – nite!!!!
