A POST GRAD GUIDE TO BOSTON

The title is a bit misleading. This post is something more a long the lines of What Places I Would Tell Three-Months-Ago Kate About So She Stops Worrying She Won't Find Things She Likes In Boston. But that's a little wordy. While Boston has many things to like, I've narrowed the list down to the three places I know I'm going to miss the most:

BROOKLINE BOOKSMITH

Fairy lights, fancy stationary, all dogs allowed. I literally never left this store without buying something. Even when I went to take this photo, I decided to pop in, and left with Almost Famous Women by Megan Mayhew Bergman. It's a wealth of amazing new and used books behind a fairly unassuming exterior.

COOLIDGE CORNER THEATRE

Conveniently across the street from Brookline Booksmith, this is one of those independent "artsy" theatres with retro style previews selling not-too-expensive popcorn and cider. It was here I saw a screening of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, complete with coconuts that they handed out to the crowd. I also would wander in during the evenings to see movies all by myself because I don't, as my iPhone would say, give a duck.

SOUTH END OPEN MARKET @ SOWA

With this, like most things, I was in it for the food. Which is a good thing, because the SOWA market was bustling with food trucks selling everything from artesian grilled cheeses to giant ice cream sandwiches. There was also a farmers market, a craft market and a vintage market. I never bought much, but it was nice place to walk around while sipping lemonade. BONUS: If you go a little down the street, there's a park with some great dog-watching opportunities. Bring a friend.
