Saint Patrick's Day Weekend in Boston.
Friday Night - Doyle's Cafe.
New England Boiled Dinner - Corned Beef and Cabbage.
Black and Tan.

What a great night to visit Doyle's Cafe in Jamaica Plain. Just before all the crowds come in for the weekend. They must order corned beef by the truckload. They'd been serving it since Tuesday. No matter what you ordered, you could get boiled potatoes or carrots with you meal.
Later Friday Night - The Milky Way.
Harpoon UFO.

We finished off the night with two strings of candlepin bowling[ Warning: This link plays music ]. What a cool place. One one side there's a club with a live band and on the other side are a bunch of bowling lanes. If you look down in front of the bar, you'll see that the bar side used to be bowling lanes too! You don't even have to rent shoes, you can wear your own. After getting one pin down on my first string, I got the hang of it and got a few 8s, 9s and 10s.
Saturday Afternoon - Doyle's Cafe.
Turkey Tips.
Black and Tan.

We made sure we were there for the Harpoon Irish Pipe & Drum Band. Members of the Irish Air Corps Pipe Band came right into Doyle's and stated playing their bagpipes and drums. They were wearing kilts too! For the rest of the time Fenian Sons band were playing some great Irish songs.
Sunday - Doyle's Cafe.
Fish and Chips.
Black and Tan.

We went back to Doyle's once again for their great brunch. I was looking forward to the best fruit pancakes in Boston. We got there around 12:00. There was an hour and 1/2 wait. Not a problem. That gave us time to have some more Black and Tans! After about 35 minutes we were seated. We didn't get the Brunch menu though. Then when we looked at the lunch menu, it said they were only serving breakfast until noon. I guess that means we'll have to go back next Sunday!
