“One if by land, Two if by Sea”

 by guest blogger and sister, Christina

Thank goodness for being a teacher! I have the luxury of a Spring Break. Most adults aren’t as fortunate as I am to be able to take a week off from work in the middle of April. Instead of lolly-gagging around, I took full advantage of my break and flew off to the East Coast. Marvelous! Me and my beau lived it up in Boston for four days, and it was Ah-Ma-ZING! So much culture, grandiose architecture, nice-as-can-be locals, incredible nightlife, splendid eateries, fabulous style, and a sick a$$ ballpark!

We started off our trip at the ever so popular Samuel Adams Brewery for a tour. Nothing says “Welcome to Boston” like gaining knowledge about the brewing process and free beer! You wouldn’t believe how much Bostonians love their Sam Adams! It was everywhere.

Oh and we spotted the guy who brews the beer, and is featured in the commercials! Sweet!

Later that night, Erik and I rallied up for the Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees ballgame. Let me tell you--Boston loves baseball. Diehard fans! The game was a mash up of a Giants game and Disneyland--outlandish costumes, fanatical hotdog vendors, face painters, big jazz bands! It was too much fun!

The following day was spent in the 90 degree weather, walking the Freedom Trail.

Who doesn’t love seeing the State House, Memorial Cemeteries, Robert Shaw’s battles, and the home where Paul Revere lived?

Oh, and nothing is better on a hot day than stopping for a pint of Sam Adams Seasonal Summer Ale at the local Irish Tavern. Check us out, at the “Bell in Hand Tavern”
The following day was spent at the surprisingly Berkeley-esqe Harvard University. Totally urban vibe, people singing into microphones, playing guitars, working us tourists for some pocket change. We had the opportunity to dine and drink at Upstairs on the Square (where Michelle Obama recently ate!) Check out the cutesy pink and zebra décor. Fierce!

Our last and final destination was the uber posh bar at the Liberty Hotel. Name: Clink. Past life: Prison.
Can you imagine? It was all too much--the fabulous crowd, the DJ, the lights, the stiff drinks, the unbelievable history. I was in over my head! Then, to top it all off, I spotted some runway models strutting their stuff. I inquired to some nearby photogs, as to what this was all about. “Fashion Thursdays,” they replied. What impeccable timing! This was all too good to be true! I schmoozed, mingled, and sashayed my way through the crowds, and right up there with the models, too! Check me out ;)

Hope to be traveling in style again soon enough!
