This is No Boston Tea Party

Nothing can impress a group of senior British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) executives like a scenic expedition down the Charles—for some of whom it may have appeared a trip down the memory lane.  Mixing the modes of transportation for variety, some on kayaks, others on canoes and yet others on scull boats, the group got a bird’s eye view of the “Beantown”—from MIT Dome to Longview Bridge down to Hatch Shell where the city’s world-famous Boston Pops could be heard rehearsing for their patriotic 4th of July Pomp and Circumstance.  The group took no offense and bonded like no other as they sipped their bubbly, as no tea was on hand—and reminisced about days gone by and how happy they were that they were not at “the Tea party.”  

Once safely on land, the group headed to one of the most celebrated eateries in Boston for a country fried honky-tonk deep in the heart of…Fenway? Loretta’s Last Call on Boston’s famed Lansdowne Street is serving up hearty portions of Southern fried favorites and live music. The group was clearly enjoying down home classics that included fried green tomatoes and slow smoked brisket that could only be topped by line dancing instructions that took them to wee hours of the morning.
