Our Dinner with QSis!!!

We had a great time with QSis (Lee) tonight! Lee snuck up on us as I was buying a pair of shoes! We went over to the Cheers Bar and talked awhile over drinks. Then we went to Durgin Park for dinner. Durgin Park > Home James had vegetable barley soup and the Yankee Pot Roast and I had clam chowder and the New England Corned Beef and Cabbage. Lee had clam chowder and fried oysters. For dessert Lee and I had Indian Pudding, and James had Boston Creme Pie. It was all pretty good, and we were all full when we left.

Poor Lee probably had to go home and put ice bags on her ears, since we practically talked them off! She probably learned a lot more about us than she ever wanted to!

The first pictures are Lee and me hitting on Norm! Then there is one of James trying to steal Norm's beer and one of him just hanging out with him! (edit--I forgot to add those two, so they are at the end). There are some pictures of us sitting and talking. I also included the picture of my Indian Pudding and James's Boston Creme Pie.

This was a really nice way to end our stay in the Boston area!

I have a question. Years ago (early '90's) I was at the Bull and Finch, across from Boston Commons, which was the exterior of "Cheers" in the TV series. Is that the same place?

I don't know a thing about Boston, but I don't think so. All I know is this was in the Faneuil Hall Market Place.

Not the same place. Was really weird going into the Bull And Finch Pub. Seen it a million times on TV, then it's real and in front of you. Then you walk in, and it is nothing like the TV set. 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.

Now I'm really jealous. It's great meeting all those members BUT now the Cheers bar. Oh My.
