Patriots Opening Day: Prologue

My trip to Boston along with Mrs. NE Patriots Draft was an incredible experience. Here are a few non-football highlights from our foray into the Hub.

USS ConstitutionWe walked the entire Freedom Trail on Saturday, stopping at the Union Oyster House for some Boston scrod, oysters, cherrystones, and shrimp. The Old North church was an incredible sight, along with the USS Constitution and the Old South Meeting House. After climbing on the orange line close to Bunker Hill we were exhausted, but walking in the footsteps of our founding fathers was quite worth it.

Patriot Lobster
That’s a huge lobster sitting on a bed of steamers and mussels that the fine folks at Legal Sea Foods provided for me Friday night. While Boston, and New England in general, does seafood a thousand times better than my native Iowa, our sweet corn puts this yellow stuff to shame.

Bonfire BostonBonfire, located in the Park Plaza where we stayed, provided us with the most unique dish of our vacation. Mrs. NE Patriots Draft ordered the hailbut, which came with foie gras, dandelion greens, roasted stone fruit, blue corn pancakes, and popcorn. It was incredible, and put my Kobe beef to shame. A nice glass of Veuve Clicquot washed everything down nicely, helping to prepare us for gameday.
