Hello from Boston! Rob and I landed late on Thursday evening and spent yesterday exploring. I can't believe this is my first visit! We walked ten miles yesterday. Ten! Boston is magical and I already can't wait to come back again.
We started with coffee from Barrington Coffee Roasting Company and a quick breakfast at Flour Bakery (Rob got a delicious-looking sticky bun and I had the egg sandwich on gluten-free bread) before heading to Beacon Hill. Once we got to Beacon Hill, we walked around (all the way down Charles Street as my sweet friend Anna recommended) and admired all the dreamy shops and buildings for a while.
Then we headed toward the Boston Public Library, stopping at Joe's American Bar and Grill for lunch on the way. (The food there was delicious but my Bloody Mary was super boring.) We split a super decadent hot chocolate from L.A. Burdick before finally going to the library, which is beautifully and overwhelmingly majestic.
After the library, we grabbed a Lyft to Harvard Square and walked around there a bit. By 4:30 we were fading pretty fast, so we went back to our hotel to relax and warm up a bit before going to Harpoon Brewery for some beers and cider (I got pumpkin cider and it was perfect).
We had planned to go to 75 on Liberty Wharf for dinner, but it was closed for a private event, so we resolved to go for brunch in the morning and then accidentally wandered into a hotel bar disguised as a restaurant (what can I say, we were tired). It was a lovely day and Rob and I had a great time.
Today, we're at my friend Jenna's house to work on the first edition of The Eighty Twenty Magazine. We'll be Instagramming away all day with the hashtag #8020WinterFest, if you'd like to tag along!
