This is #CoffeeWithLarry, or, in honor of a request from Mark Wetmore, the GAM impresario, #TeaWithLarry! This is Monday, December 11, 2023.

Our topics:

1. Love Boston, had a nice weekend seeing friends.
2. We stayed at #PorterSquareHotel, a wonderful hotel, thanks to manager Curtis Butcher.
3. Our two other suggestions in Boston: #LenoxHotel and #charlesmarkhotel. Both on Boylston are fun stays.
4. Breakfast dives: Andy’s (near Harvard).
5. Today, we went to Kelly’s Diner, which is two train cars from Delaware, moved in 1996, and it is a wonderful dive breakfast place.
6. Saw the world’s finest bartender, Jefferson, this weekend. Jefferson ran the #Charlesmark bar for 15 years until the hotel owners changed the bar into a restaurant.
7. My place to eat and work, #CityTable, at the #LenoxHotel, the staff is thoughtful and fun, and the food is fantastic. Wifi is great, and the coffee is very good.
8. If I was running a hotel, the #LenoxHotel would be the standard.
9. FootLocker winners this weekend! Elizabeth Leachman and Drew Griffith took girls’ and boys’ titles at 44th Footlocker, sponsored by HOKA.

10. European Athletics SPAR Eurocross Champs happened on Sunday, Karoline Grovdal won her 3rd senior (10th medal), and Yann Shrubb of France won the women’s and men’s titles. GB took seven medals, and it was a day of #GloriousMud!
