Lunch in the Downtown Boston Sukkah

Nomi and I just met for lunch downtown.

Normally, this wouldn't be such a big deal, as we usually try to meet for lunch once a week. But with this week still being the holiday of Sukkot, part of the reason we met for lunch was in order to enjoy the use of the sukkah that the Zhviller rebbe builds in front of the old city hall on School Street.

First, Nomi and I met at the Milk Street Cafe on (where else) Milk Street, to pick up lunch. Then we walked over to the sukkah and ate our lunch. While there, we ran into other folks enjoying the use of the sukkah, including the owner of the Milk Street Cafe and Chuck, the father of one of our good friends from shul.

Nomi was very happy with lunch in the sukkah:

And I was happy too. We had the teriyaki salmon, which is always delicious.

And after lunch, we returned to work, and I posted these pictures. Life is good.

Stupid Mets.


It's very nearly a perfect day, weather-wise. I wish I had a sukkah to eat in, even though that's not my worship tradition. Wonderful photos.

And I hear your "Stupid Mets", and echo it.
If you really want to go to the effort of eating in a sukkah, call the closest synagogue and ask if they have one that you might dine in. Generally, synagogues build sukkot for the members to use, and if you explain that you're just an interested non-Jew they'd probably still be OK with it.

But weatherwise, we did luck out this year. There are times when the temperature was in the 40s Farenheit and we had to be bundled up to be comfortable in the sukkah.
I saw two public sukkahs this weekend, one in Union Square and one in Washington Square Park. Thought I would share that. :)
Were there Jewish folk around the sukkahs trying to get passersby to do the blessings over the lulav and etrog?
I had the teriyaki salmon in the downtown sukkah today also, and it was indeed delicious. Too bad we weren't there at the same time.
We were there from about 12:40 to 1:00.
did you see guy-who-follows-me-around in the sukkah?

We were there from about 12:40 to 1:00. When was he there?
