• Tourists in Harvard Square

    March 4, 2011

    Chandra, Monica, and I spent the afternoon as tourists in Harvard Square. We wandered around, explored points of interest, snapped photos of those points of interest, and spent way too much time window shopping in Anthropologie.

    Of course, we had to visit Harvard Yard. I miss my old stomping grounds!

    I said ‘hello’ to my old office window. It was bittersweet.

    While at University Hall, Monica and Chandra gave John Harvard a little rub (on his foot).

    After wandering around Harvard Yard for awhile, we popped into Crema Café for a beverage.

    I ordered a very refreshing Moroccan Mint iced tea.

    After that, we headed to Tory Row for lunch where we met Jayne, the company’s Events and Communications Manager, who treated us to an informal blogger lunch.

    I started with a Shipyard Ale.

    As an appetizer, the four of us shared a cheese plate.

    For my meal, I ordered the Bacon Flatbread, which I absolutely loved the last night I ate at Tory Row. It has smoked bacon, Vermont white cheddar, baby spinach, and Bermuda onion on it. So yum!

    In fact, I raved about this flatbread pizza so much, a quote from my blog ended up next to the menu outside the restaurant!

    After lunch, we stolled along the Charles and caught up.

    Oh man, I MISS Harvard Square! Used to be my main hangout, back in the day.
    (I was even part of the floor show in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” in the late 80’s/early 90’s. Is it still playing there?)

    Looks like you guys had a great time!

    Looks like you had fun! I’ve always wanted to go out and visit Boston, it’s on my list of things to do.
