Why is it Called Beantown?

My East Coast Adventure included a day in Boston to visit a friend from college. After sampling a little bit of everything here's the verdict.


Faneuil Hall is a local landmark, filled with street performers and tons of food. Reading Terminal is better.
Philly: 1
Boston: 0

Couldn't come all the way here without going to Cheers. And yes we went to the "real" one. Cheers is one of the best shows of all time so...

Boston: 1

This is apparently the oldest bar in America. Oh yeah, well we have the oldest paper mill in North America so take that!
Philly: 2
Boston: 1

This was the highlight of the day -A whole lobster, fries and coleslaw for around $10. Ok, I have to concede, this meal would cost me an arm and a leg here in Philly.

If this is what Boston calls a "farmer's market" then Philly wins hands down. This was really just some cheap and smelly produce from Mexico.
Philly:3
Boston: 2

Wow I just realized I watch way too many "reality" food tv competitions. Stupid Bobby Flay.
