I’m moving

I’m leaving the lovely Jamaica Plain, which has been my home for over a year now, and moving north to Lynn.
There is a ton of stuff I’m going to miss .. walks around Jamaica Pond, JP Licks, Costellos, Galway House, Sorellos to name a few.
However, I am NOT going to miss my commute to work.
I work in Lynnfield, and the easiest way for me to get there is to follow the Jamaica Way, go down Boylston St past Fenway, then Storrow onto either Route 1 or 93.
The bane of my life are the Red Sox. Whenever they play at home, I tack 30 minutes onto my commute, just to get past Bloody Fenway Park. I *never* remember to check the schedules and plan accordingly, and instead almost always get stuck in the madness that huge numbers of baseball fans manage to cause when they absolutely *must* park a close as physically possible, regardless of who is trying to drive down the road.
So, it was with *great* pleasure to see they are playing at home next week (Mon 9th right through, every day, till the 18th), and then on and off until the end of the month.
Why great pleasure?
I move on Saturday, and *never* have to do it again.
That alone has made my day :)
I hate the Red Sox.

    The Galway House is great. Have the Chicken Steve! That always cracks me up.

    Best Cuban food in the city (probably one of the only places for real Cuban fare) is right down the street from Galway. Give El Oriental De Cuba a try (across the street from Bella Luna pizza). And what about Centre Street Cafe?

    I love Galway house, but I wish they would change their menu occasionally :) I think I’ve had everything on it by now :)
