My friend Cara and I are on a road trip across/around/above/in/through New England. We started Monday morning by stopping at the world’s largest dairy store, Stew Leonard’s, in Danbury, CT. I was skeptical when our friend Elizabeth told us to meet her at a grocery store, but it was actually very impressive. There were animatronics and no aisleways (just a maze of free samples) and incredible fresh foods and it was all very delicious. We got a tour of her fancy house, then headed east.
We got to Boston Monday night and looked everywhere for a place to camp but there is no camping anywhere near town so we got a hotel room and headed to “Boston’s best open mic” at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge. You cannot open a tab there. It was a ton of fun. You can listen to one of my songs above all these words (Cara was nice enough to film). The featured performer was Evie Ladin of the Stairwell Sisters. She played banjo and she and her husband danced and did incredible body percussion. I will upload some videos of her later.
Then we got a fancy Irish lunch and took the train downtown to see the fancy shops at the fancy Faneuil Hall Marketplace and look at the aquatic creatures at the New England Aquarium yay fun day:
Cara’s roommate’s older brother let us stay at their fancy house on the Boston College campus so that was very nice and I slept with a Carebear and now it is morning and we are playing with the cats and babysitting the baby yay ^_^
Heading to Maine this afternoon!?
