Ever since I first met Penny of BostonZest online in June 2011, I have been hoping to have the opportunity to meet her face-to-face because her tweets and informative posts revealed that we share many of the same interests: uncovering interesting tidbits about the cities where we live, history, wine and food trucks! So, I'm truly thankful that Penny was able to take some time out of her busy schedule to introduce me to the culinary delights of The Dining Car and to give me a tour of the Boston Public Library (BPL), the first large free municipal library in the United States.
If your travel plans include a trip to Boston, I highly advise searching Penny's website for invaluable information about where to eat, what to do and practical tips for events like the upcoming Boston Marathon. It's what I always do as soon as I book a trip to Beantown.
Thanks to Penny, I already know where I'm going to take Stephane during our next visit in May - the recently opened Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the BPL. Click here to read Penny's post.

After thoroughly enjoying my first afternoon tea with Bridget in October, I was honored to receive an invitation to her birthday tea at the Boston Harbor Hotel on Sunday. Bridget's blog, "Finding my Kd", is a real delight because it gives me a glimpse into the world of this incredibly busy graduate student in biological engineering.
While I wish that I could write more about Bridget, I've got to run to board my flight to Paris. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon with you and your friends, Bridget. The champagne tea was a real treat!
How did I meet Bridget? This post will give you a clue.
