Last weekend, T&C came to visit us. We stuffed our time together full of fantastic activities (which included a special showing of To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar). But our Saturday featured two gems of local attractions: the Harpoon Brewery and the Fish Market Sushi Bar.
T will probably kill me for posting this picture from the brewery, but it really perfectly captured the time we had there. Beyond being really interesting and full of insanely good beer, Harpoon's atmosphere mixes a go-with-it attitude with some pretty impressive technology. It made me feel like we had stepped into Willy Wonka's beer factory, relocated onto an organic barley farm. If that description is too much for you, just trust me when I say we had a great time, and this place passes the test for a Saturday afternoon adventure.

Later that day, when our bellies were no longer full of delicious beer, we refilled them at the Fish Market Sushi Bar in Allston. Besides being adorable, this little restaurant serves up some mean sushi. It's always easy to leave room for dessert when doing sushi, but at this place, it's a requirement. T got a cute little green tea mochi, and I had my first helping of sesame ice cream. Both of us went home happy.

We were so happy T&C were willing to make the trip up here and hope it happens again. Maybe next time we'll try wine and cheese...
