By the way..

I am home safe and sound from Boston. It was a great trip, although there was a lot more conference than I wanted there to be. I learned a lot (and have a lot of work to do to ensure that we are doing things correctly at work), but so much conference cut into my sight-seeing time. Bummer!


Here I am outside of Cheers for lunch on Sunday. Sadly, I had to go back to the conference, so I ate lunch there, but was unable to partake of the libations. :-(
Most of the sightseeing had to be squeezed in during lunch (it gets dark early in December), but, aside from Cheers, I managed Bunker's Hill and the Old North Church. I would love to go back in the summer when there is no threat of snow and the warmest day is above 40F. Especially now that I have figured out the subway system.
Maybe one day.
Thank you to everyone for the good wishes. I hope to catch up on all the blogs over the next few days!

welcome back... glad you had some fun... I went to the Cheers at Quincy Market, which is not the "original" one...

Yea, "original" the only original is the TV show. But the outside looks real. :-) Do you have any new blogs up? You've been gone for 10 days, isn't that long enough?

Glad you had a good time on your trip.

If you make it back to Boston, I highly recommend the Freedom Trail. It's a hike (2.5 miles one way), but definitely worth it--you get to see LOTS of significant historic sites. And be sure to bring your camera!!!

Phooey - what good is an out-of-town conference if you don't have plenty of fun time!!?? Glad you got a bit in.

Spring time, or at least more moderate temperatures, is definitely preferable, though. I second the Freedom Trail. Well worth your time, and if you're not careful you could learn something. :)

Thank you! I did manage about 1/2 of the Freedom Trail, from Paul Revere's house to Bunker Hill. I am paying for it now, though, I think I was already getting sick and being out in the wet, rainy 40 degree weather didn't help!

Cool.

Is that the actual bar that they used for the exteriors in the series?

Wasn't the real name the Bull & Finch, or something? Did they rename it in honor of the series?

Yes, this is the actual exterior. And the name was changed in 2005!
