LIVE from Boston.

Greetings from Boston, MA! The city I matured in, or thought I did. At least went to college in. It's been a while, and it's always grand to return, even if I keep calling the "T" the "max". Lame! I've been back three days now and later today I'm meeting a friend at Grezzo for lunch and we're stoked. I've strolled through the Public Garden, seen obnoxious buildings Emerson has built and seen the Back Bay buildings I loved living and learning in become condos. After a big morning of wandering and shopping (so sue me, I missed H&M), my friend Maria and I stopped at the always-hip Otherside Cafe for lunch, just like we used to, a billion years ago. Their menu has expanded on the vegan options, and it fondly reminded me of many places in PDX.

The Public Garden. aka my front yard during most of my college years.


With Mass Ave and Boylston behind me.

Oh, and I went to Grasshopper last night and will be returning tomorrow evening...

OMG--I am *SO* jealous! I think I mentioned it once before, but I went to Emerson too :o) And I miss Boston! And Boylston and the Public Garden and the Commons and the T! And what?! Condos where buildings used to be?! Say it isn't so!

Wow,
You got a good day weather-wise to be in Boston (I'm in Portland, Maine)! You'll have an even better one today.

Glad to hear you found more vegan options. There's a great place in Watham called Masao's kitchen which serves great vegan macro food at great prices if you are near Moody Street.

Have fun!
