the 4th in Boston

Boston Fireworks

Fireworks over the Charles, Boston, Massachusetts

I gen­er­al­ly don’t enjoy stay­ing in Boston for two hol­i­days — 4th of July, and New Year’s Eve… This town is a tame place for a par­ty, and the con­cept of the roof-deck seems to be lost on the land­lords here.

Still, I’m not hold­ing fast to my rule this year… we spent the New Year in the South End, and we spent last night BBQ’ing at our house. It was a short walk down to the Charles Riv­er for the fire­works… pret­ty low-key this year, and we couldn’t hear the Pops, because they appar­ent­ly decid­ed Cam­bridge didn’t need speak­ers this year.

Sat­ur­day was spent at the Casa del Jason, Bri­an, Adam, Dana, & jerin (whom I shouldn’t even link to, because he’s using a hor­ri­ble host­ing ser­vice), drink­ing beer and eat­ing prop­er­ly-encased hot dogs. They throw quite a par­ty — no small feat when your house is sand­wiched between a pri­ma­ry school and a play­ground.

At least we’re get­ting away next week­end– camp­ing in the Fin­ger Lakes… and there will be wine
