I’m headed to Cambridge, MA tomorrow. I’ve never been there, or to Harvard, before, though I did make it to Boston for last year’s ASA. I will be attending the Objects of Knowledge, Objects of Exchange conference on Friday and Saturday. On Wednesday and Thursday, I’ll be poking through my first ever archival collection: the papers of Simon Kuznets. If anyone out there is around Boston and wants to get coffee or somesuch on Wednesday or Thursday, or can recommend anywhere great to eat or sit around and do work at near Harvard’s campus, send me an email or leave a comment!

    Harvard’s campus is situated right in the middle of many, many great places to eat, sit and read. Some of my favorites include:

    Dado (50 Church Street) good tea/coffee, excellent wraps, good pastry

    B Good (24 Dunster Street) good sandwiches, excellent sweet potato fries, etc

    Charlie’s Kitchen (10 Eliot Street) bar/diner, good laid-back atmosphere

    Also, there will be a conference going on at Harvard Law that might interest you:

    Filipe’s Taqueria (83 Mt. Auburn St.) has great tostada’s al pastor (if you eat pork!). Recommended by my Mexican roommate when we were at Harvard. 🙂

    Cambridge, 1 (27 Church Street) is an upscale pizza joint, but delicious.
