A perfect Saturday in Boston—
First, we put our name down at Neptune Oyster since the waits are always an hour plus, even on a Saturday afternoon.
Next, Mercato del Mare’s 1pm oyster shucking lesson, you shuck all you care to eat and pay per oyster. The lesson is BYO as well and there’s a fairly priced wine shop across the street w/ a great beer selection. After the lesson we decided to purchase a shucking knife, we’ll see if it gets any use in the next 2 years.
We headed back to Neptune Oyster, after wedding talk over a cup of coffee, for the fattest lobster roll I’ve ever seen in my favorite cozy space. Too bad we were all oyster-ed out.
Finally, our afternoon was spent biding our time for a birth announcement and celebrating with homemade blini’s, champagne and Facetiming with the birthday girl.
