24 hours in Boston

I am doing a "24 hours in Boston" piece for an upcoming article. Now I know most of Bean Town's popular spots, but can anyone possibly give me their "hidden gem" or "must see" bar or restaurant. The theme is 2 guys in their late 20s getting together for a day of drinks, food and fun.

Feel free to reply here or drop me a line at nomadicandy.blogspot.com

Thanks!

I have lived in Boston for 59 years and have never heard a local call it "bean town".

Nor have I - only people who are not knoeldgeable from out of state do that - and please do not add any "cuteisms" to your article where you drop "r's" or talk about Pahking Car at Hahvahd, or lookk for ChowdAH. If you promise to do none of those things, I will think of some answers to yoru original question.

I write travel articles myself, and I thought the point was for the author to find their own hidden gems and share them with their readers. Come to Boston, do your research, write your article, no?

Lose the 'Bean Town"

2 guys in their late 20's? Are they grad students, professionals, gay, straight, into sports, into politics, into jazz, into grunge, into art, into pickup joints?

A night in Kenmore Square. Dinner at Eastern Standard, a show at House of Blues, and some pool at Jillians.

What amyb said.... I hate it when I suspect travel writers are relying on word-of-mouth and haven't been to the place themselves. If you're writing for 20-something males, and are one yourself, it's fine to get a suggestion here but if you don't check it out in person, you're not a true travel writer.

Sorry, I'm too old to offer any of my "hidden gems"
