After dinner we said goodbye for now to the Schuhs and headed to the Wilbur Theater for the 85 South live comedy podcast - Evan's request. While Chris and I were definitely not in the target demographic for the show, it was fun to experience something different and hear Evan say afterwards that his face hurt from laughing so much.
One of the things on our list of ideas that we hadn't gotten to was buying canoli in Little Italy. I found a 24 hour bakery (Bova's, established in 1932) and we stopped in on the way home. The lively atmosphere of that neighborhood on a summer Saturday night was worth the detour all by itself; the canoli were absolutely delicious but I think I enjoyed the 2 block walk to the bakery from the car even more.Read more
Casey had been out of town for work all week, so this was the first chance we had to see him. We met up at the library after a too-brief self guided tour that was interrupted by the shouts of, "Library's closing!" of a couple of town-crier-like employees who were obviously the designated building clearers.
We walked along Newberry street until we ran out of time, then stopped at a place called Whiskeys for a pub dinner with Kathryn, Dave, Casey, & JordanRead more
We had grand plans to spend a couple of hours at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum, but alas, when I plugged in the address to Google Maos, I found that it was randomly closed on this beautiful summer Saturday. Such a disappointment, Ben and Evan had been looking forward to this all week. They showed such resilience, almost immediately recovering with a genuine "We'll have a great day in Boston no matter what we do" attitude and absolutely making it so. What wonderful travel companions they have both grown up to be!
We decided to explore Cambridge. While walking across Harvard Yard, I noticed the Harvard Natural History museum on my phone map and remembered that Evan had asked if Boston had a Natural History museum. Everyone agreed that would be a fun stop and we all enjoyed the 2 hours we spent there before it was time to head downtown to meet Kathryn and family at the library.Read more
