Folks, I’m going to Boston on March 4. I’ve never been before. Can anybody tell me if there’s a dish associated with Boston?
Baltimore has crab cakes (amazing!), Philadelphia has those horrific cheesesteak sandwiches, Louisiana has gumbo (meh), St Louis has Imo’s pizza (not horrible), Chicago has hot dogs (any hot dog is a good hotdog), Florida has key lime pie (yuk but that’s any pie I didn’t make myself). What do I get in Boston?
Also, aside from Harvard and the ballet (and my evisceration of hashtag feminism at the conference I’m going to, obviously) is there anything that’s an absolutely must-seen?
If you are going to NEMLA, my talk will be in English, so feel free to come by. Details provided on request. Or just look it up in the program. I will be announcing a book series I’m launching, it will be good.
