Two weeks ago I had the opportunity join a group of fellow bloggers to get to know the new Chestnut Hill Square in Chestnut Hill, MA with Boston Brunchers. It’s most famous for…dun..dun.dunnnn… the Wegmans… but there are a bunch of new shops and eateries in there that are definitely worth checking out.
We all met up at the True Runner store where we tried on some of the newest footwear from New Balance and learned about the latest from TomTom. We started the day out with a nice walk about Brookline/Chestnut Hill guided by some of the ladies from True Runner. We walked, chatted and admired/creeped on the beautiful homes of Brookline (seriously… Reebok’s CEO… his front gate is insane…) over the course of 3 miles.
When we returned we were all STARVING. Who would have thought our little march around town would do that… but let’s be honest…I’m always down for a good meal. We wandered across the parking lot to sweetgreen where we met up with Rachel from Healthy Chicks, who does their Boston-area marketing. We were treated to some amazing salads, peach gazpacho and their blueberry basil lemonade – yummm. I grabbed their August salad, which consisted of mixed greens, herbs, almonds, goat cheese and peaches. So delicious. Like…”went-to-their-Back-Bay-location-the-next-day-and-got-the-same-thing” delicious. I’m a sucker for goat cheese.
We hung out on their patio, stuffing our faces and hearing all about the awesome stuff sweetgreen is doing in the Boston-area. If you haven’t gone to a sweetgreen — and there’s one near you – I highly recommend.
After refueling with those salads…we had one more stop. Sweet. Cupcakes. …there’s always room for dessert right? Sweet was kind enough to let us try a bunch of their cupcakes, which were the perfect end to the afternoon.
Shoes? Salads? Cupcakes? All in a day’s work! haha I had such a good time hanging out with everyone – thanks to Chestnut Hill Square, True Runner, New Balance, TomTom, sweetgreen, and Sweet for their generosity. Working just down the road… I know I’ll be back soon!
