A Vegan Taste of Boston and My trip to the World Series!

Scott and I lived in Boston for a little less than four years while I attended law school. (We've been back to Boston several times -- so if you're looking for places to eat, try the search bar on the blog -- type "boston" and you'll find all my previous trip posts). 


I was fortunate to live there in both 2004 and 2007, and one of our apartments literally backed up to Fenway park. If I went on the roof of the building I could see into Fenway.


Now that we live in Los Angeles, we also cheer for the Dodgers, but we will always be Red Sox fans first.

(And although I'm a little sad the Dodgers didn't make the playoffs, I'm also relieved that I don't have to cheer against my other favorite team.)

If you're unfamiliar with baseball, it's a sport that carries a lot of superstition and, well, I started to worry that, perhaps, I needed to be at Fenway for the Sox to win. After all, it was my moving there that reversed the curse, right? Lol.

(Really I was just looking for any excuse to fly to Boston for the playoffs.)

So Scott and I flew across the country to cheer for our favorite team. 

Here we are at Game 1: 

I'm wearing 8 layers in this photo. I felt like a giant bright red marshmallow. I was even wearing bright red pants. 

(A very nice girl in the ladies room assured me I did not look like Santa Claus.)

Another benefit to being back in Boston for the Series? The leaves. 

The city is so full of color. You must see a New England fall once in your life. It's magical. 

Our first night in Boston, we met up with several long-time friends who took us to a new vegan/vegetarian restaurant called Walnut Grille

Here's a few dishes they ordered. The vegetables and rice in the middle was my dish. Everything pictured is vegan. 

My friends' pizza was quite interesting -- a tropical pizza with black beans, mango, corn, red onion, avo and vegan cheese. The big picture is a peanut crusted tofu and the other pretty dish is some kind of polenta stack. Everyone raved their food was awesome and I loved my WFPBNO macro bowl. 

And yes, Fenway, is veg-friendly. They have veggie hot dogs, veggie burgers, fruits, salads, hummus, and other accidentally vegan things like cheeseless pizza, beer and pretzels :) 

p.s. Most stadiums are now veg-friendly, try the website veggiehappy.com for a listing.


We had such an amazing time (and again, that superstition!) that we changed our flights, stayed in Boston and headed back to Game 2! 


Why do I feel like I'm going to be in St. Louis this weekend ;)
