Dinner By Fenway

 For some unknown reason, there are a few baseball themed sports bars within a couple of blocks of Fenway Park.  We had dinner at one of them on our way to see the Red Sox vs Mariners game on May 14th.  The food was pretty good.  Sean had fish and chips; Andreas had a greek salad and a grilled cheese sandwich, and I had a barbecued chicken sandwich that was waaay too big for me to finish.  For a sports bar, it wasn't bad.  It was expensive, though, as all of Boston is.

Appetizers At TGIFriday's

After having such a huge lunch at the Italian place, we decided that just a light meal was a good idea for dinner.  There was a TGIFriday's near the hotel, so that's where we went.  The food had spice and flavor, but nothing stood out as spectacular.  That could have been because we weren't really hungry.

Birthday Lunch

 Sean's birthday was the day before his graduation, so we had a birthday lunch with him.  It was at the most fancy Italian restaurant in Worcester, and the food was excellent.  The service was excellent too, despite a forty person party a few tables over.  We had a -lot- of food, too, and left stuffed.  I missed French onion soup, so I had some.  Sean and Andreas shared some calamari, which they said was not the best, but not bad, and we all had fried mozzarella.  Unlike most places, they used fresh.  It tasted great.  The marinara sauce tasted a bit lemony.

 Sean had some kind of stuffed chicken thing, which is evidently a favorite of his.  Andreas had pasta.  I had chicken marsala.  It was somewhat bland, but the mushrooms were lovely!  I rarely get mushrooms at home because Andreas doesn't like them.  It's one reason why I eat so many mushroom containing dishes when we're out.   Great food, and a wonderful place to visit, even if I can't remember the name.

Back In The USA

 We flew to Boston as our first stop in the US.  My son, Sean, graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and we were there to see it.  Our first real food (since Wendy's and the hotel breakfast buffet don't count) in the US was at The Boynton, a restaurant very close to the WPI campus.  Nachos, of course, started off the meal.  Andreas had a reuben and I had a roast beef sandwich.  I forget what Sean's was.  We were soooo happy to be eating American food, and it tasted good.  As you can see, the portions are huge, too, which benefits the (mostly male) students of WPI.

Why I Went...

 Or, at least, the timing of why I went to the US last month.  This is my son.  He graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute on May 12th with degrees in aerospace engineering and professional technical writing. I'm so proud of him!  The rest of the pictures give you an idea of the ceremony.
