|Such a beautiful view of the city|
Thanks to my love of Groupon (and Living Social) I had been watching out for deals to restaurants in Boston that I thought we'd like to try. As soon as I saw the one for Jacob Wirth I knew we had to eat there. Allan loves German food (he is German after all) as does Austin and this restaurant didn't disappoint. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend eating there if you're in Boston anytime soon! Their sweet potato fries are the best I've ever had.
After lunch we started out on the Freedom Trail and made our way through some of the most historic parts of the city and ended up at the Old North Church. This was without a doubt the best spot to me and it wasn't just the church itself that captivated me. The grounds around the church had plaques and memorials and there was a small garden that honored several influential individuals that helped shape our nation. We even saw a man singing opera in the courtyard where the huge Paul Revere statue is.

In the middle of the Freedom Trail Allan somehow spotted 5 Hour Energy and he took off like a child into a toy store to get free samples. Say what you will about 5 Hour Energy but Allan uses this stuff all the time when he's staying up late for work (or video games as I suspect) or when he's out of town for work and pulling long hours and sleeping very little. A ten minute side trip resulted in a purse full of 5 Hour Energy bottles and one very happy husband.
Our detour to Mike's Pastry has already been mentioned in a previous post but I feel it deserves more attention. The line inside was 20 people deep when we walked in and there wasn't an empty table anywhere. Inside the cases were different kinds of cannolis, macaroons, cupcakes, and other goodies. Choosing just one was quite difficult! Did I mention you can order them online and have them shipped to your house? We are in big trouble now!
