Well, Insider Pages lists a few different Veterans Taxis, and none of them are located in Chestnut Hill, but this is the closest. So I think this must be the one that services Boston College. It is very reliable, they always come promptly, and most importantly, I don't know of any other cab company that accepts Eagle Bucks, which is just so gosh darn convenient.
When I moved to Boston to go to BC, I got a flyer about this place, how they take walk ins and don't charge too much. So I went, and I've never gone to another barber in Boston. I've just been very satisfied with this place overall, over the past 2 years. It's like $14 or something, and it's nothing too fancy, but I always come out liking my hair. There's never much of a wait when you walk in.
If you don't already know what Fenway Park is, you live under a rock. But if I must tell you, it is one of the most historic, and definitely the most charismatic baseball park in the Major Leagues. I went as a young lad, and was enthralled by the beach ball bouncing around the bleachers. What if it fell onto right field??? But somehow, it all works out ok. PS tickets are expensive.
I think of this as a sex version of Spencer Gifts. You'll probably walk in, make some ooohs and ahhhs at the weird things youve never seen, or the things youve seen but never tried... but you probably wouldnt buy much here. It's definitely entertaining to go here, no doubt. But I mean, if you're really in the market for some sex toys, there are some more legitimate, less grimy boutiques to be visited.
Corporate America has taken over, and the good old Mom and Pop store has changed names, to Campus Convenience. The same Campus Convenience that you find at BU, and probably every other convenience store at every college around Boston. Well, despite this, it's still the most undeniably convenient location to get all your living essentials. They sell solo cups and beer pong balls.
On the downside, there is this really creepy Russian guy who works there. Like really creepy.
I go to Boston College, and when I used to come visit from out of town while I was still in high school, I'd stay here with my parents. It's the closest hotel to the school, and it's pretty nice, in a nice area, too. Decent food around the area. Only thing keeping it from a 5th star is that you can find a comparable level of comfort at only a slightly worse location for a good bit cheaper, if you look around at some other hotels.
I LOVE BLUE MAN GROUP! Honestly, it doesnt matter who you are, your age or what, I swear you're gonna love this show. Everyone I know who has ever seen it has agreed... but how can you describe it? So creative, ludicrous really. Wild, and interactive. Plus afterwards you'll get to meet the Blue Men.
That is, Blue Man Group. I've seen Blue Man Group in Las Vegas, NYC, and twice here. I love it! And I've never heard of anyone who didn't. The show is amazing. As for the venue itself, it's really designed to create an atmosphere of fun and a bit of wildness. It's very dark inside, with ominous (but comical in a way) music playing softly.
Walking through the North End on a nice Saturday afternoon, grabbing some great Italian food, this little spot adds to the whole experience of local flavor. It's got all kinds of unique crafts - pretty modern, but not obnoxiously so, as many stores of this type tend to be. Definitely interesting. Also, the staff was pretty wam and friendly with me.
I go here regularly to fill my prescriptions. The pharmacists are often very busy, making them unable to give much personal attention. I had one encounter with a very rude pharmacist, who told me he was unable to answer my question, when in fact, another pharmacist the next day answered it for me, and told me the other guy was really able to do the same, but chose to ignore my request. On the plus side, the CVS recently expanded to a larger building across the street from the old one. This has allowed them to expand their inventory and carry more specialty items.
