Check, Check and Check

31 Jul

Every summer it seems to be the same: I make this wonderful, detailed list of all the things I want to do, only to finish the summer with one or two checked off. Not this time! My goal this weekend was to check off as many activities as I could. Here’s a snapshot of my very busy, very fun, very active weekend in Boston.

Friday afternoon after work my boyfriend and I went to the Sam Adams Brewery in Jamaica Plains. I’m going to start off by saying that I don’t drink much beer–in fact, I don’t really even like beer. But I knew this tour was a “Boston Must Do” and plus the BF loves handcrafted brews–so it was really a two-for-one deal. Brewing was surprisingly a very scientific process, and I had a hard time keeping track of all the chemical ratios. Needless to say, it was a very fun trip, full of Barley, Hops, and Beer Tasting!

The rest of my weekend involved backyard barbecues, hiking the Blue Hills Reservation, cooking Sunday brunch in the apartment, making summer-fresh Sangria, and finally going out to a nice seafood dinner at Skip Jack’s in Back Bay to celebrate our summer in Boston.

I feel far more prepared to start August after this weekend full of activities!
