Boston in Thanksgiving

I just booked a trip to Boston, staying at the Hyatt Regency Thankgiving weekend. I know all the tourist attarctions (Freedom Trail, Fenuil Hall) but would like some local places to eat breakfast (cheaply) as the Hyatt doesn't provide i for free. I am going with my gf and we are both in our early 20s, what are good places to party? I know it's somewhat dead Thanksgiving weekend so any help is appreciated.

Hi Platna,

Thanksgiving weekend will be fun in Boston, you'll both have a really good time! There's all kinds of little places to have breakfast near that Hyatt in Boston. The Boston Bakery is at 600 Washington St., 426-0955, The Good Life is at 28 Kingston St. I'm pretty sure they do breakfast, I know they have lunches there. It's at 28 Kingston St., 617 451-2622, call first to make sure.

If you walk around the corner to Summer St? There's a lot of places all up and down Summer St and the side streets for lunch! One of the places that's the BEST if you get the chance look for it, is Pacini's Italian Eatery, it's at 74 Summer St and you'll see it at the intersection of Summer and Otis St. the # there is 617 574-9611.

Are you going to be in Boston the night before Thanksgiving? If you are? Then head to the Quincy Market area and walk all around there and you'll have a really good fun night! It's where a lot of people in your age group head to. It's straight down from the Downtown Crossing area past Marshall's. All up along the Downtown Crossing area there's all kinds of places to have breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You could try Houston's for dinner while you're in town, it's at 60 State St. 617 573-9777 they don't take reservations here; it's right as you walk in to the Quincy Market area. It's a fun place to hit.

See if you can get reservations while you're in town for The Scollay Square Restaurant at 21 Beacon St., 617 742-4900 near Bowdoin Sq., just take a walk up by the Omni Parker House and Government Center to get to this restaurant, it's not a bad little walk from the Hyatt where you're staying.

You're going to be surprised to see a lot of people in Boston over the weekend! It won't be as quiet as you think, especially the night before the holiday, trust me!

Enjoy your get away weekend!

Have fun!

Platna,

I forgot to tell you that if you end up being up around the Copley Plaza Hotel and the Copley Sq. Boston Public Library? There's quite a lot of restaurants, bistros and shops to check out all up through here. Copley Place and the Pru shops are truly incredible and I think your girlfriend will really like seeing all of this area? So check all that area out too and Newbury and Boylston Sts out one of the days, hopefully you have good weather for your get away.

You can hop on the "T" right at Downtown Crossing and just get off at the "Back Bay" stop, you'll see it on the orange line list of stops!

There's a restaurant not too far from this area, look for it, it's called Fire & Ice at 31 St. James Ave. 617 482-3473, check that out, you'll really like it there!

Again, have a great weekend!
