I’ve been to Boston a few times in the past, but this is the first time I came over as an adult.  Normally, I would come visit family in Needham, but this time, it was for business, so why not try to make this an experience that I can actually remember!

This time around, I spent some time in the Sheraton Boston which was, at the time, overrun with colleagues and people that I have seen in one of the many conferences in my industry.  You meet some interesting people from my different specialties and a great place to network.  From what I can remember, the hotel is close to a lot of places that are tourist attractions and of course, places to eat Lobster.  

Just outside the hotel and to the right, you’ll find this nice bar on the corner about a 2 min walk to the right on the opposite side of the road.  Unfortunately, I have no idea if it’s still there and I thought I took photos of the place, but I guess I didn’t.  I will include the rest of my photos in the gallery.   They make a really tasty lobster dish, so if you’re not allergic to seafood, this is the place to go. 

The wonderful world of Google has allowed me to show you the place I am talking about:  http://bukowskitavern.net/

If you have a chance, check it out. 

Just a little further down the road if Fenway park (10 min tops), so if you’re in the city and nearby, I would suggest picking up some tickets from stubhub or ticketmaster, grab a frank and enjoy the game.  

Now that I think of it, there’s quite a bit within walking distance and Boston is a walking town where everything just looks nice.  It’s definitely not a dirty city and had a stroll down to the Museum of Fine Arts to get my art on and enjoyed some of what Boston brings to its people.  

There’s a bit of a mix here.  Some items in the museum are obviously not Boston or American and some are, so you’ll get to see a mix of everything which is always nice.  There’s a nice cafeteria in there as well should you want to have a sit and eat some food or have a coffee.

I really didn’t have a whole lot of time in Boston so I pretty much ran around when I wasn’t on a call, in a meeting or replying to emails.  I’m a big hockey fan and didn’t get a chance to go to the Gardens (Boston Gardens), however I did walk by it on my way to Cheers!

TD Garden
100 Legends Way
Boston, MA 02114
p: 617-624-1050
Customer Service
Phone: 617-624-1331

FYI, the Gardens is not really far from Cheers and it’s a must see if you end up in this lovely city.  Always keep in mind that Cheers is almost ALWAYS full, so call for a reservation or go really really early so you can get a table and actually enjoy yourself.  It’s a loud place with lots if people talking and not much of a sit back and relax style like it is on TV.

I just realized there is more than one location, but the one I went to was in the heart of the city:


Faneuil Hall Location

Quincy Market, South

Boston, MA 02109

P: (617) 227-0150

F: (617) 227-8416


I’m writing this blog post years and years too late and am catching up now, so sometimes, my posts will just be stuff I can drum up from memory and sometimes doesn’t flow as it should.  It probably closely resembles a brain dump if anything.  I am pretty sure I did a hotel review as well, but I can’t find the video.  When I do, I’ll just make a separate post.
