I don't think so, doesn't look like The Bull and The Finch, which is still called that.. They've erected a replica in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

Barbara, I LOVE Durgin Park's Indian Pudding. I have the recipe, if you want it. When I lived in Boston, Faneuil Hall Marketplace was my neighborhood mall, and I used to go over to Durgin Park just for a bowl of fish chowder and Indian Pudding.

I just looked at the menu at their website and didn't see any sandwiches listed. That doesn't mean they might not have them, or wouldn't make one, they just aren't listed on that menu.

We know we are going to have to go home soon, but we love the memories we are building on this trip. We have seen some interesting places, and we have definitely met some wonderful people. We know this kind of vacation will never happen again (on this scale anyway), so we are savoring every second of it. Thanks for being such a wonderful group of people! I wish we could visit all of you in person!

Barbara

Kind of an underground pub with many kind of cramped chambers (no reference to Diana). But htey did have a lot of Cheers t-shits, memorabilia, et al, at the front counter.
Okay, I just found out from a matchbook that there are two of these in Boston. The one we went to is listed as, "The Authentic Replica." The other is on Beacon Street and is listed as, "The Original Inspiration."

P.S. Oh it was so cute--They had T-shirts and other things with "Cheers" and "Where nobody knows your name" on them. The cutest thing was an infant's "Onsies" that said, "I don't even know my name."

As everyone else has said about Barbara and James, they are fun, great people to be with! They are friendly and generous and open and totally non-pretentious. Felt as if I'd known them forever. Wish they lived closer to me!

By the way, after much consideration, Barbara DID buy a pair of pretty shoes from a pushcart vendor in the marketplace. I don't have the photo I took of the shoes here (I'm at work,) but I'll insert the photo tonight, for any shoe-o-philes in the audience here.

Jeekins, they did have a lobster salad roll special for $19.99. All the prices had gone up exponentially since the last time I was there.

UB, you are SO gallant! Thank you.

Barbara's beautiful new shoes
