Boston wasn't exactly a wash-out, but it was wet. The rain never seemed to end. And, well, that's because it didn't. It drizzled, it poured and it downpoured all weekend long.
That said, my Beantown posse still showed me a good time, including dining at a charming Alsatian bistro in Harvard Square called Sandrine's, braving the rain to check out the swans in the Boston Public Garden and hitting numerous boutiques up and down Charles Street in the Beacon Hill district.
The highlight of the the trip? Giving into the rain and deciding to just hang out in one of my pal's living rooms, hunkering down for a series of chick flicks on the TV and a makeshift dinner of frozen Bell & Evans Chicken Tenders, tender stalks of Asparagus and a bottle or two of white wine. Breyer's Light Ice Cream Sandwiches rounded out the menu perfectly. So did the laughter.
