Beantown C-town '09/'10

Beantown C-town Gate
-

Wei and I drove up to Boston this past weekend. One of her college friends was getting married and since this is a couple we actually like, we decided to take the 5 hour drive. A quick word about the wedding. Cash bar. Enough said. But the weekend wasn't a total loss. We didn't have much time for sight seeing but we really didn't care. We had already been to Boston last year and since it is a very compact city we were able to traipse 90% of it in less than a weekends time . What I did have my eye on this time around was hitting up Chinatown....again.....of course! And we hit it. Above is my Beantown C-town haul. 27 HK flicks for 86 bucks. I bought a bunch of films I already had. Some in different formats and others from different distributors. You can't really go wrong buying doubles, triples, or quadruples of titles like DR. LAMB, TWIST, I LOVE MARIA and POM POM AND HOT HOT for $2 a piece. Didn't really take many pics this time around bc we went nutty like Japanese tourists during last years visit. And C-town hadn't changed a lick. So, below I posted a few pics from this years and last years trip to Boston's C-town. It's a very small Chinatown in comparison to the other's I have visited but if you ever find yourself in the area, it's worth a quick walkabout.


DVD/VCD/souvenir shop. Saw bootlegs of TRIPLE TAP and SHANGHAI here.

Yes. This place sells HK movies AND aquariums!? Sadly, more fish than films.

  1. No offense to your fiance's friends but a cash bar is just not acceptable at a wedding. Booze should be free and flowing.

    It looks like Boston has more of a Chinatown than D.C. has.

  2. I agree Glenn. A cash bar is a definite no no. It really took the wind out of my sails. i didn't want to be there in the first place and the cash bar thing almost sent me overboard. (excuse the nautical references)
