A Trip to Boston

Boston is a city that I haven't been able to explore enough of in my 34 plus years. It is a city rich with history and a passionate sports audience. Rachel and I had 2008 planning to get done in Cambridge this past week, so it gave me some time to take in some of the gems of the city.

I was able to finally see a Celtics game at the new Garden. I was surprised that the venue seemed so outdated already. I am familiar with places like Staples Center and America West (Suns) facilities - they both blow the Garden away. The food was marginal. There didn't appear to be any 'non-fried' options for food. The stadium itself also seemed a bit archaic....I didn't feel like I was on top of the action like I do in those other arenas.

I also had the chance to eat at what is thought to be the oldest running restaurant in all of the United States - The Union Oyster House. It was established in 1826 and it also claimed to be where the first toothpick was invented. The clam chowder was incredible and the restaurant itself was charming.

I am not sure when I will get back to Boston again, but hopefully it will be soon (need to check out the Red Sox next time I am in town)

(The photos represent my seats at the Celtics/NJ game (Game 7 of season for Celtics) and a photo I took of the sign that greets the customers at the oldest restaurant in the US.)
