    Anyone from Massachusetts?

    On Wednesday the wife and I are headed to the Boston area for a week.
    We spent a week there back in April 2006 and and had a blast. This time we're looking for new things to do.

    Last time we hit:
    -The city of Boston itself (too bad the Star Wars exhibit isn't there anymore).
    -Walked around Harvard.
    -A Harbor tour.
    -Salem (meh), but could be cool this time of year.
    -Waldon Pond.
    -An old cemetery (I forget the name) with a bunch of famous authors (like Ralph Waldo Emmerson).
    -We took a trip up the coast to Maine (Kennybunport - sp?).
    -Almost met Ben Affleck.
    -Toured Fenway (couldn't get tickets - the dirty Yankees were in town).
    -Ate at damn near every seafood shack on the coast (I made the "mistake" of eating New England Clam Chowder for the first time in Mass. I can't eat that vomit in a can they call N.E. Clam Chowder here).
    -I'm forgetting a thing or two...

    So far on this trip, we are:
    -Going to/volunteering at the Regatta (my bro-in-law's girlfriend is in it).
    -Heading to Lizzie Borden's house.
    -Finding a Newbury Comic Store for some Sailor Jerry Rum (weird, I know, but damn, that is some damn good rum).
    -The aquarium (probably) and an IMAX show (we saw one last time).
    -A Bruins game is a possibility.

    Suggestions for anything else?

    Call up Steven Tyler and ask if he's ready to rock.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Nope. Not from Massachusetts, but I'd sure like to visit one of these days.

    As a history buff, New England is definitely on the list as is Virginia and DC. Now if only I can win the lottery........

    I'm envious of your trip, RB (especially the Bruins game)!

    Until you ask Sarah if you guys can go to a Bruins game.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    Yeah, pretty much.
    Money and time could also be an issue.
