okay, i know, you’ve been on the edge of your seat, waiting to hear how our trip to boston ended (now two months ago). well, i’ve been a little preoccupied with work and becoming an aunt and everything, so i think the delay can be excused. 🙂 our last day in boston did eventually arrive, so we packed up our bags and wandered around the financial district in search of some coffee. since our flight didn’t leave until dinnertime, we had a lot of time to kill and ended up posting up in render coffee for a couple of hours. true to form, phillip ordered a sweet mocha and i ordered a frothy latte and we enjoyed reading and just watching the locals. it was pretty chilly outside, so the cozy mugs and soft leather chairs warmly welcomed us to stay, which we did.
all hopped up on caffeine, we were ready to put some food in our stomachs, but not before we snagged a couple more classic boston pics.
now, had we had pizza the night before? yes, but this next pizza place we went was meaningful to phillip. when he and his family lived around boston, their parents would drive by regina’s to grab a few pies for the kiddos and scarf them down, and since phillip could eat pizza pretty much any day of the week, that is where we had lunch.
thank goodness we had the baby suitcase with us, because there is not a lot of extra space in regina’s. tables are crammed together, booths line the walls, and the bathroom stalls are quite little. regardless, it’s clear that regina pizzeria has been a boston institution for some time (since 1926 to be exact), so we ordered some beers and sat back and enjoyed.
the waitress recommended the giambotta pizza and the meat lover’s pizza, so that is exactly what we ordered. i remember very specifically loving the crust and could easily picture myself ordering regina’s weekly if i lived anywhere nearby. these pies were a good size, and with the appetites we had, only one slice remained. but don’t worry, we took it to-go and ate it at the airport for dinner. 🙂 waste not want not!
unfortunately, our visit to boston was coming to a close, so with our pizza in tow, we hopped on the blue line to the airport. we were only a couple of quick stops away, and before we knew it, we had our boarding passes and were though security in no time at all.
but wait! we had a surprise! we couldn’t leave boston without one more trip to mike’s, so we had stopped there quickly after regina’s and took with us to the airport one peanut butter chocolate cannoli and one cookies’n’cream cannoli. i savored every single bite as we watched the sun go down, the airplane arrive at the gate, and the line of passengers start to form. although i would have loved a day or two more to explore some more, i thoroughly enjoyed our quick boston visit and highly recommend you give the city a try if you haven’t yet had the pleasure.
