Craft Beer and the Red Sox

Despite being on-call for work Friday night and all-day Sunday, I had a pretty amazing weekend.

After buying an iPhone, getting my hair highlighted, and shopping for some new spring/summer work clothes, I decided to try and spend as little money as possible this weekend. Thankfully, I succeeded.

Friday night we stayed in and hung out with friends, and Saturday we attended the American Craft Beer Fest at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. I took zero photos, because imbibing quickly became more important than taking pictures. But trust me when I tell you we had a blast, and it was great to see a bigger crowd and more vendors there this year versus last year. I hope that means more people are starting to appreciate craft beer!

After the beer fest, we headed to Cambridge Common where I proceeded to eat about 18 Mac & Cheese Bites ($6.95), plus 3/4th of their Middle Eastern Platter ($7.95). I never said I was classy.

On Sunday, Z and I went to a Red Sox game, which was free thanks to our lovely realtor.

We each drank a Sam Summer in the sunshine...but quickly escaped to shade before our dangerously white bodies burnt to a red, blistery crisp.

All in all, it was a fun weekend with great weather, great friends and good eats - and it barely cost me a dime.

How was your weekend?


  1. I went to the ACBF this weekend, too. What a great time! It was nice to meet you a couple weeks ago at the Chocolate Tart!

  2. Great to meet you too, Emily!

  3. iphone, highlights, craft beer, red sox - wow it doesn't get much better than that!!

  4. Sounds like a superb weekend! Red Sox tickets from your realtor? Beats a new cutting board or welcome mat! I've never been to Cambridge Common, but the description of that grub makes me want to head there today!

  5. Molly, you need to go - they have great food, and even better beer! ;)

  6. Never been to Camb common but I walk by it at least once a week. Love the outdoor seating.

  7. I love mac and cheese bites but have never been to Cambridge Common. Will have to check it out one of these days!

  8. It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! I spent the weekend in NYC celebrating my best friend's 30th birthday!
