    Hey, Harmony, if you make it out to the 'burbs at all, let me know. I'm out in Concord (MA), and can show you around. Lots of historic places around here.

    I was going to suggest that to her soon. It's a must see area imho!! A friend of mine went to Concord Academy when we were kids and I would go to visit her regularly. I loved that area!!

    I didn't get a Lobster Tail :( The lines were ever so long, they were lining outside. We did pick up some Italian bread though around the corner at the other Bakery.
    Hopefully we can get some tomorrow.

    Tomorrow we are going to Fenway Park and a tour of Sam Adams Brewery to start off with. My son likes Breweries :rolleyes:

    That Italian was awesome, so big too that we had to box the rest to go. Got some free drinks, either the waitress forgot to charge for them or she liked my son. :lol:

    Hi Frank, I didn't know you were around that way. I hadn't looked at Concord yet but did notice there was some cool places there. Thank you for the offer, I will see if and when I am heading that way and let you know :)

    Frank is a great guy and to date, the only MLP member I've met in real life. And Concord is awesome. Revolutionary War soldiers' graves, a great bar/ restaurant in a colonial inn, and the battlefield.

    Harmony, I'll make you the same offer if you want to come to Salem. Witch trials monument (and lots of witches), National Historic Park, the House of Seven Gables, and lots more.

    Peace

    Concord is a great town. I believe their main attraction is the prison. :rofl::rofl:

    Frank has always been a cool guy on this site and from what I'm told from those who have met him.

    And thank you Rex, much appreciated :)

    I have got to say that those of you from the East coast here have been really helpful and generous for my visit here. Thank you all :)

    I was there yesterday doing the tour and waved up to your window. It was past 6 by the time we had finished.
    We ended up walking all the way to South Station and seeing some nice places on route . Saw how much some of those places were going for.. wow.

    Portland Maine today.

    Harmony - if your son likes breweries, make sure you check out the Harpoon Brewery in the waterfront area of Boston very close to that is Trillium (no brewery tours, but the beer is amazing) and the off the beaten path a little is Night Shift in Everett, MA which is just awesome.

    Walked from Fenway to South Station? That's a good walk.

    I usually (and yesterday was no exception) leave work at about 4:45. Hope you enjoyed the tour. Our beloved Sox made the playoffs, so I'm sure folks at the park were in a bit of a good mood by that.

    Safe travels and enjoy Portland!

    I'm ten minutes below Portland right now. The weather here today couldn't be more perfect for exploring the area. :wave:

    Looks like you picked a nice week to be in New England! Enjoy!

    A sfogliatella (Italian pronunciation: [sfoʎʎaˈtɛlla], also common in plural form: sfogliatelle), sometimes called a lobster tail in English,is a shell-shaped filled Italian pastry native to Campania. Sfogliatella means "small, thin leaf/layer", as the pastry's texture resembles stacked leaves. There is a distinction to be made between lobster tail and sfogliatella, as they do not refer to the same pastry. The lobster tail exists only in the United States and generally refers to a cream filled, larger pastry.

    It was an interesting tour especially as I have no clue about baseball. Learned a few things.
    Very friendly crew who did the touring. Forbes under 30 was having a party there so while preparing for that, loud party music was being tested through the speakers :laugh2:
