  • Re: Frozen Four - Where to Eat? Drink? Must See Stuff

    The freedom trail kicked my *** today. I'm going to be sore tomorrow. Should have brought better shoes. Planning on doing my night photos tonight since last night was kind of crummy out and I was abducted by bbdl and scarlet.

      Well my hotel made my day and comped the $20 breakfast buffet. A nice way to cap off a national championship. Thanks DoubleTree Downtown Boston. Homeward bound now...

      It's a great day for hockey.

        Bumping this list forward for future reference. Well done, The Zlax45.

        Another Kendall Square Option: Commonwealth. Chosen by another member of our group, it features classic American dishes very nicely done. Meatloaf, Chicken Pot Pie, Lamb, Pork Chops. Some might find it a touch pricey. An entrée plus an ala carte side dish would likely be in the $30 - $35 range. But everyone in our group was very pleased with their meal. Mac 'n Cheese side dish was especially well received.

        Home now; thanks to all who posted travel/tourist advice in this thread.

                A few. I didn't get the night pictures I wanted though the courthouse was a nice find I didn't have planned originally.

                I'll put some of them in a gallery and share it in the lodge sometime this week.

                  DoubleTree is a solid chain, IMO. They actually go out of their way for service, as far as my experiences go.
                  Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
