In this place I live

Odds are I won't live in Boston forever or, really, for much longer then the next year or so. If I think too hard about this, it's pretty depressing. I love this place. A lot. With that in mind, I compiled a list of things I want to do while I still live here - things I haven't done yet and can't really do anywhere else.

Also, I have a list of places where I would like to eat. Because, man, do I seriously love food. These are kind of ranked in order of desirability. Kind of.

(Since I first started listing things, some of them got done. Hurrah! That explains the crossing-out.)

  1. This is a great list, I have my own in mind too. I highly recommend Toscanini's. Their ice cream is delish!
