Labor Day Weekend – Boston, MA

I’ve lived around Boston basically all my life and some times I forget how much there is to do and see here in Boston for a visitor, so I’m going to do more posts on Boston.

I hit up my friend on Sunday night for a good time out in the city. Without a doubt, Cure Nightclub is the hotspot every Sunday night, but even better on a Sunday night before a Monday holiday like Presidents’ Day, Patriots Day, Labor Day, and Columbus Day. You can compare Cure on Sundays to LIV on Sundays in Miami. It’s THE spot to be at. The music is EDM and hip-hop if you’re wondering. Your best bet is to get there early because the line to get in will be wrapped around the block. You can try get on the guestlist, buy a table, or know some people who know some people at the door. Another club/lounge I enjoy is Tunnel, which we also stopped in at that night, is located inside the W Hotel.

On Labor Day, I went kayaking with my cousins on the Charles River. After a night of drinking, kayaking can be a little rough. I think I had a combination of a hangover and seasickness, but I toughed it out and enjoyed the lovely company of my cousins, the 88 degree weather, and the cool river water the best I could. You can rent kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards at Charles River Canoe & Kayak. They have four locations in the Boston area; I went to the one in Allston/Brighton.

We worked up an appetite paddling so we grabbed Japanese hot pot at ShabuZen in Allston. The Chinese Spicy Mongolian broth definitely hit the spot. It wasn’t actually that spicy and it reminded me of my mom’s chicken soup. It was very warming and cured my hangover. Lychee Saketini, anyone?
