What could a Fluffernutter possibly be? That’s a question you might ask yourself while reading this article.
You probably have seen Fluff, a marshmallow crème product, right next to Nutella on the gourmand’s aisle of your supermarket. The Fluffernutter is a sandwich that combines both peanut butter and Fluff! At first, I was like “Wow, this might be way too dry to eat,” but it is actually amazing! The reason why I wanted to share that with you is because it’s a must-do in Massachusetts because it originates from Boston.
Now let’s take a look at a desert which was declared the official dessert of Massachusetts in 1996. It’s the Boston Cream Pie! This delicious pie is not really a pie but more like a cake with a separation of vanilla in the middle and a chocolate glaze topping. You will certainly find this dessert at any Bostonian restaurant and it’s also a must-do or should I say, “a must-eat” in Boston.
But what do most Bostonians drink during a night out? My first impression after arriving in Boston was that people are very much into sports – especially running. You can consistently see people running whether it’s 6 a.m. or 3 p.m. So I would say that people don’t drink that much, but when they do, they do it professionally. Bostonians are very keen on what kind of beers they drink and you can see a very large selection of beers at any Blanchard’s that would make any European liquor store jealous. To my surprise, Bostonians also drink some cider like the very famous Angry Orchard that you will see at every bar. I hope I gave you a little flavor for what kind of foods and drinks are out there but my best advice would be to come out here and try them yourself! :)
“Have you ever heard about Suits?”
“No, I didn’t ask if you ever wore a suit. Do you know the TV show Suits?”
“No? Were you living in a cellar during the past year?”
That would be the main reaction people might give you if you tell them that you don’t know about this TV show. Luckily enough, Boston University was the favored host of a very private screening for BU students. Yes, my friends, we already have seen the first episode of the season 4, one week before you! Or if you are not in the US, a year before you…
At the beginning of the event, we were welcomed with free drinks, pizza, and several little games to win t-shirts and small giveaways. We were even able to take pictures with the whole crew… on cardboard! Don’t be too jealous yet, the best part is coming up.
After half an hour of eating free pizza, we were invited to sit for the private screening of the new episode of season 4. It was a great episode, and the fact that we could watch it before everyone else made it even better. But the highlight of the event was when Jessica and Rachel came on stage to answer a few questions from the crowd. Yes, R-A-C-H-E-L was about 30 meters away from me. She is even more beautiful in real life J
I hope this gave you a little flavor of the excitement in the room! Oh and by the way, at the end, Mike died.
Just kidding ;)
Hello everyone, my name is Alexandre; come from Paris, France, and I am 24 years old.
I am a graduate student at BU, enrolled in a master of Innovation & Technology - so you will see me walking down Comm. Ave. for 8 months - until August 2014!
In France, I am also a graduate student of International Business at ESG Management School and I am taking classes toward a Certificate of Strategic Management in Harvard Extension.
Why did I choose Boston?
That may be the most common question I get asked when meeting new people. Well, Boston is an incredible town with so many things to do! It is world renown for its education quality, as most of the top universities are based here and BU is ranked the 41th best school in the world (pretty nice, huh?). It is a mix of so many different nationalities and the good part is that it’s full of serious students who are just like me and are looking forward to meet new people and party on the weekend.
Besides the academic aspect, the other attraction for me in Boston is that I really like sports, especially rowing and hockey. What better place to practice or watch these 2 sports? (Btw, if any of you row as well, contact me for a practice on Charles River J).
