Visiting Filene and her magical basement

I *heart* no sales tax on clothes!

sunny 25 °C

We had a later start today after a late night last night. Leaving at the crack of noon, we decided to have lunch and go check out shopping in the Back Bay. Our first stop was Filene’s basement, where we gawked at $10,000 dresses and $3,000 coats that were on sale, and wondered how they could have cost that much in the first place. We checked out some of the little shops and things in the area before heading over to Government Center. We looked at the marketplaces around Quincy Hall and Fanueil Hall before changing for dinner. We had reservations at Legal Seafood (which, according to Amy, was excellent!) and spent a nice evening there. True to form, I did not have seafood, but I had a filet mignon. After seeing all the happy little lobsters naively waiting their fate in the tank, I couldn’t do it. I was able to convince Ali to order some wine, and we each had a “flight” of wine to taste; she had white and I had red. They were actually really good wines, and I was proud that she was being adventurous :) I ended the meal with a to-die-for chocolate mousse. We found our way to the North End after dinner, and found Mike’s Pastry, which is a well-known bakery that always has a line out the door. We got some cookies for tomorrow, as tonight we are just too full.

And, on a bright note, literally, there was no rain today! :)
