6th Annual BioRepository and Sample Management Conference Preview:
Where can you continue your Biorepositories experience after the hall is closed?

I hope everybody is as excited about this week’s conference as I am. As my last pre-conference post before Biorepositories 2013, I thought it’d be helpful to highlight some attractions in the surrounding Seaport District area.

My first piece of advice would be to go by the Seaport Hotel Bar and try their new golden honey crafted beer from partner Long Trail Brewing Company. The excitement around this new addition is that the honey used in crafting this beer comes directly from the source, the Seaport Hotel. As an eco-friendly hotel, their 11 rooftop hives have gathered several hundred pounds of honey in their most recent harvest, which was sent up to Long Trail Brewing’s production facility. If you’re looking for the perfect fall beer, the Seaport Hotel Bar is a great spot.

Another highlight in the up and coming Seaport District is Sam’s located above the high-end department store Louis and just around the corner from the Seaport Hotel on 60 Northern Ave. With a huge wraparound deck and floor to ceiling windows, the views of the Boston Harbor are too good to resist. Offering a creative twist to the American classics, Sam’s is a highly coveted restaurant in the area.

The main draw to the Seaport District is its restaurants, but if you’re looking to go to the heart of Boston, I suggest you make your way towards the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Over 70 retailers and 40 office tenants occupy the 200,000 square feet of retail and 160,000 square feet of space on Boston’s iconic mixed-use festival marketplace. There you can enjoy unique shops and cuisine as well as music and street performers. The world-famous Quincy Market Colonnade is an obvious attraction but you can’t go wrong with any of the diverse experiences found throughout the marketplace. Despite the Red Sox being out of town this week, the Faneuil Hall Marketplace is guaranteed to provide fun entertainment.
