The Publick House, Washington Square, Brookline, Mass.

8 05 2014

Though on the same line and quite close to “Coolidge Corner” where we used to live, I had never been to the neighborhood of “Washington Square” prior to last week.  I was told it was the next commercial area on Beacon Street after Coolidge Corner moving away from Boston so had imagined something very similar but was surprised to find a much quieter intersection when I got there.

At Washington Square, this was my destination, for a first-time “meeting” with a new friend whom I “met” through here, from blogging on wordpress.

“Pretty Things Jack D’Or”, a Cambridge-brewed Belgian-style beer.

The beer was great and the meeting thoroughly enjoyable.  Another somewhat surreal experience as I’m from Tokyo and he living in Brookline and what are the chances that we would be meeting in person (in his neighborhood, too)?

Ha! I agree–a bit surreal, but fun all the same. 🙂

Ken, do you have a better e-mail address than your gmail account? Three of the e-mails I had sent you in the last couple of days just bounced back to me. 😦
