Hello Boston Chowhounders -
My wife and I will be up in your fine city for the marathon next week.
The evening after the marathon, we're hoping on meeting up with some relatives for dinner, and were wondering if people had any advice on a place to meet up.
Here are the kinda complicated requirements:
-we'll be staying at a hotel near the finish.
-My relatives live NE of Boston, I think in the Peabody/Salem vicinity. Not surprisingly, they don't want to drive into central Boston the evening of the Marathon, w/a Red Sox home game going on as well.
-we won't have a car. we wouldn't mind taking some form of public transportation out of Boston, be it the T or, if it isn't too expensive/complicated, a taxi, BUT we do not want to have to walk down any staircases. That part is key: no walking down staircases. Escalators are fine, walking up staircases is ok, but from past experiences it's going down that hurts.
Yes, this is all rather random and surely a bit picky, but if anyone does have advice, I'm all ears.
