Yeah, perhaps she should go to Halifax instead.

There is also Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, which is one of the more popular tourist spots, lots of shopping and eating to do there.

Are you gonna be strictly in the city, or have a car and look to explore other areas?
I love Middle Eastern food, also Italian. I haven't talked to my travel agent so I don't know where I'll be.

That's a great idea. Much better than spending money to hang out with Bostonians.

Not sure what your beef is. I had a great time and the people were great (and I've seen about 30 of the states....was really pleasantly surprised re: Boston).

Yeah, what's your beef about Boston? I think it's a great town or I wouldn't be going.

Dave just has bad memories of Tedy Bruschi making Donovan McNabb blow chunks of Chunky Soup all over the field in the Super Bowl 3 yrs ago.

I've never been to Boston but if you are in Boston on October 16th it might be worth checking out the Hynes Convention Center. Bono is scheduled to speak at the annual Mortgage Bankers Convention at 8:30 am.

How do I know? I work for a bank in the mortgage division and periodically receive information from the MBA about upcoming seminars.

Boston is a very cool town. Great walking town too. I've walked from Fenway to the North end, stopping at bars on the way - good time. And the funniest goddamn people - every now and then just stop and listen to the people, it's great.

So he's never been there I presume, maybe I'm wrong. If so his judgments have to do with sports teams?

I've never been to Canada but I refrain from making any judgments unless and until I go there.

Whatever

verte, definitely hit up the North End for Italian food. For Middle Eastern, try Shwarma King in Coolidge Corner (Brookline, a Boston suburb just down the C line).
