Today is Labor Day, and my sister-in-law’s family invited us into their beautiful home on Mystic Lake (famous for Mystic River) for a nice homemade meal of roast chicken, salad, and corn on the cob. But first, we were asked if we wanted to experience Boston, with an opportunity to go to the legendary Fenway Park for a Red Sox game! We’re not real baseball fans, but— this is fuckin’ Fenway Park!
We were less than a dozen rows behind third base as the Red Sox took on the Blue Jays (spoiler: Red Sox won). It was surreal.
After the game I had to visit Jerry Remy’s, which I’ve heard so much about from Tailer, who worked there while she attended the University of Massachusetts. We sat and shared an order of nachos and drank a couple of beers.
