Default Boston, MA

Kabe and I (and possibly a friend; we're seeing if he can go) are heading up to Amesbury, MA for the Run For Your Life marathon there. The event is most of the day Saturday; we're driving up on Friday.

It's a hour away from Boston...and we've never been to the area. Any suggestions for how to spend Saturday night? We're planning on doing a drive thru on Friday night because Boston's the only place in the US so far to have a Wagamama's and I fell in love with that restaurant when I was in Ireland.

Not a clue; and I thought I knew my home state.

if you can... catch a Red Sox game while you are there. There are a lot of famous pubs in the area, so Cheers is a must.

Which one are you going to? Fanuiel hall? Pru? Or Harvard Square? There are a ton of bars in the Fanuiel hall area. The North end is a short walk away. You can get some great Italian pastries at Modern Pastry or Mikes ( I recommend Modern, less tourists)

The Prudential center is near Fenway Park and Landsdowne street. Again a lot of bars and things to do.

Harvard Sq Cambridge is also a good time. Rocky Horror picture show starts at midnight.

I can only suggest being very careful crossing the street. The one time I was there all the drivers had a "take no prisoners" attitude.

Boston isn't an hour from Amesbury unless you drive very slowly.

Take the T in. It's easier. Just make sure you know what time the last trains are.

I'm from a few towns over (in NH) from Amesbury.

Last time I was there - Boylston Street stop (Green line) had a lot to do - the green line also runs past North Station and into the museums. I think the Orange line also runs by Northeastern Univ and a few museums.

I think I pulled the directions for the one in Harvard. Rocky Horror sounds awesome, but midnight would be hard since we're going to be up around 5 am each day of the weekend >.< Shoot me.

That might work. I'll look up a schedule.

Our hotel's in Hampton, NH...that close to you?
