Just so you know, Sour Jacks from CVS are nothing like Sour Patch Kids. Even if they’re on sale for $0.88 (normally $1), don’t even bother. Tim and I went to the ballet over the weekend and I just needed a little something sweet to snack on during intermissions. We swung by CVS on our way to the Opera House and came out with Sour Jacks. Luckily, the performance was so wonderful I didn’t even mind that the candy was subpar. (But I did appreciate that the Sour Jacks are shaped like little people.) The Boston Ballet went far beyond my expectations — Romeo & Juliet was elegant and graceful and dramatic and passionate all at once.
Also, I think if I had to pick one building in all of Boston to be my favorite, it would be the Boston Opera House. I’ve seen three different performances there and I love it more and more each time. It was closed for about 10 years not long ago and was placed on the most endangered buildings list (did you know there was such a thing?), then came back to life in 2004. Next on my list is Les Misérables in March.
