We walked over to the street that the bar that Cheers was based on was located. It's in Beacon Hill, and was packed. We got a few pictures on the outside and were satisfied with that - the inside of the bar was not used in the TV show anyway, only the outside. The driver told us that the inside of the bar was a sound stage in Los Angeles. There are people from everywhere here - we met a couple here from Houston celebrating their anniversary, some folks from Canada, and a gaggle of French people were on the trolley with us at one time.
Hopped back on the trolley and got off in Little Italy. The streets here are so tiny and with cars parked on both sides, it makes it impossible to drive. I'm so glad we didn't try to drive any of this.
We had lunch at a really nice authentic Italian place called Cantina Italiana. Yum! Plus we were hungry by then. I suggest it if you are ever here.
Afterwards we walked on to Mike's Bakery as we were told that it was one of the best anywhere. John and I stopped and talked with a firefighter who was standing in front of Ladder Company 1 and he suggested it. We talked about what a lobster tail was and so I had to have one. Oh the crowds in this place were amazing, but the lines went really fast, I was surprised! We got one lobster tail to share and three other cannoli for later tonight or for breakfast.
Taxi back to the hotel, rest up and a reception later this evening. More later!
