An Insider's Guide To 36 Hours In Boston

The New York Times recently unleashed its top destination recommendations for anyone spending 36 hours in Boston, including a visit to the ICA, some seafood at Neptune Oyster and a drink at the The Beehive in the South End. Would your guide be any different? What would you add to the list?

We talk to New York Times contributor and Bostonian Katie Zezima as well as Boston Globe arts guru Geoff Edgers. Zezima joins us for a live Web chat immediately after the radio broadcast ends.

    Boston’s waterfront is its shining jewel, in this Bostonian’s humble opinion. Brunch at Scup’s in East Boston, a restaurant in a working marina. One of the many harbor sailing centers. The Boston Harbor Islands. Charlestown’s Tavern on the Water. Movies under the stars at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Fort Point.

    How about Haley House Café for lunch ? Can’t beat it for righteousness ( organic food and does good work in the community) and truly delicious. http://www.haleyhouse.org/cafe/cafe.htm and Toscanini’s for ice cream? http://www.tosci.com/ If you get to talk with Gus, the owner? That conversation is worth 12 hours of wandering around, trying to see “important” things.

Hosts Meghna Chakrabarti and Anthony Brooks introduce us to newsmakers, big thinkers and artists and bring us stories of relevance to Bostonians here and around the region. Live every weekday at 3.
