let’s just keep this short and sweet, shall we? sunday funday… it was a blasty blast. first stop was harpoon brewery for a tour.

what i learned:
i always get the last of the pitcher.
pumpkin ufo is being released this fall.
harpoon is the oldest brewery in massachusetts.
don’t use the same jokes twice in your spiel.
(this is less for me and more for the guide.)
oyster stout contains oysters but is really good.
when you buy growlers of oyster stout, you must do the growler dance.

then it was on to charlestown, where we were attempted to go to a pub that i had been to once before. i thought it was called tavern on the water, but it wasn’t. so we ended up at the real tavern on the water for the first time.



my thoughts:
every beverage or meal is 100 times better with a view of the water.
watch out for flies in your drink.
sometimes when people say bathrooms, they mean portapotties.
the world is small – i saw a former co-worker manning the grill.
homemade potato chips are delish.
i heart the boston skyline.

next, we put a water taxi ride on hold and parked near faneuil hall. we indulged in a beer at tia’s (outside seating with a view + air conditioning = pretty brilliant) and one at waterline in the longwharf marriott before staking out a spot on the grass in christopher columbus park where they were showing free sunday night movies.



court & i went to fetch some slices of pizza and water in the north end. yum. and then it was time for the night’s feature: E.T.! i had forgotten that it’s actually a pretty good film. and with views like this, it was even better.



an excellent sunday, once again. and man, did i sleep well last night.
