My friends Candy and Christina and I decided to take a trip to Boston for the Boston Flower Show. It was an awesome day--we headed out early and caught the Boston Express bus from Londonderry and enjoyed a stress-free ride right into South Station. No traffic, no parking, no hassle...perfect! We were a little bit like country come to town trying to figure out how to purchase T tickets and get to the World Trade Center, but we figured it out eventually and made it there.
One of my favorite things we saw was this tiny little diorama thingy.... a miniature garden! Every detail was so perfect. So cute! I just love the waterhose all snaked around the garden.
After spending a few hours at the Flower Show, it was time to get our grub on! We had researched ahead of time to find a restaurant near where we would be, and thanks to Yelp reviews and other innernets indications, we went to Lucky's Lounge. It was not entirely within "quick" walking distance of the World Trade Center as we had read, but we did find it-eventually-but not because of their abundant signage!! It was pretty obscure to find.
This place had a really cool vibe to it..... usually when places try to be all vintage/retro they end up looking just weird. But in this case it really felt authentic, like it hadn't changed much in 50 years.
I ordered the Lucky Burger for my meal, and the Boston Cream Pie for dessert....should I be offended that the waitress brought me THREE spoons for my dessert, when everybody else in my party had ordered their own dessert as well? Hmm.
