It all started with a tweet.

First off, we’re flattered; second, we realized we’ve been on a new-places hiatus since closing, and that seems a real shame.
Jack and I keep a running google doc of our favorite spots and sights which we tailor and pass along to visitors and newcomers, and I honestly hadn’t considered using Pinterest’s new places feature to map those recommendations. Thank you, Elizabeth, for the nudge! (And, thanks to Sarah for the inspiration.)
And so, as of yesterday, you can find a few of our favorite things over on Pinterest—we’ll keep adding to this map as we have time. My biggest complaint is that the pins aren’t sortable (what if someone wants to know the best cocktail spots? [Clio. Full stop.] or maybe the best galleries? why can’t we rank them rather than sorting in order of addition to the map?). Maybe we’ll have to develop and host our own guide at some point, instead.
In the meantime, catch our highlights and suggestions at UJC’s Best of Boston. We hope you’ll love them too.
