The beginning of this week finds me in meetings a lot. Nearly all day yesterday. Nearly all day tomorrow. And a chunk of today. What’s a blogger to do? Write about summer in the city, naturally.
This weekend, my favorite beach town (city, actually) of Revere hosted its annual sand sculpture contest and festival. The one I liked best, and the winner of first prize, was this one:
You can see more here. Revere is easy to reach by public transportation from the Tufts campus. While you’re there, do as we did and visit Thmor Da, a sweet little family owned Cambodian restaurant. The food is delicious and they’re so nice there! (The truth is, we were there twice this past weekend — one planned visit for dinner, and a second spontaneous decision to grab lunch.)
Dinner on Saturday was at Lord Hobo, a brew pub with a second brewery location. Like many U.S. cities, the Boston area has a crazy, and growing, number of boutique breweries, including several in Tufts’ host town, Somerville.
And on Sunday, we meandered over to the new Harvard Art Museum, which is just the right size for a study-break length visit, and easily reached by subway from Davis Square.
I’ll be back later this week with the usual type of information or news — so long as my meetings allow me the time to write.
