Boston Fun by Mitra L. '07

Tons of Boston fun, with a dash of Cambridge, too.

The weather in the area has been simply glorious over the past week, so I’ve been spending a lot of time wandering through Boston. Everything below is within walking distance of MIT — and I’m not one of those “I would walk 500 miles” people. Check out places I’ve visited:

(note: very few of the photographs below are originals)

Beacon Hill

Boston Common

Ice skating at Frog Pond (in a few months)

Sam does his best balloon impersonation (anthropomorphization?)

Copley Square & Boston Public Library

Architectural tours… mmmm

Chinatown

China Pearl for dim sum

Theater District

Downtown Crossing

Prudential Tower/Boylston

Even though their waiters are creepy…

Beacon/BU

Harvard Square – Grafton Street Pub

Central Square – The Enormous Room

Park Plaza & Finale

They have mirrors above the chef stations, so you can watch them prepare your dessert –> clogged arteries

Longfellow Bridge

Newbury St.

The new way to spell

Greek food at Steve’s

Expanding my mind at Trident Bookstore & Cafe

Newbury – J.P. Licks

Does your milkshake bring all the boys to the yard?

Newbury St. – Teuscher

Harvard/Mass Ave Bridge

Smoots are underrated

Steady hands are overrated

Killian Court – Back to MIT =)

    Oh, where to begin? He ignored our table for a good hour and a half, and then insisted on shaking every single person’s hand before handing us the check.
