I seriously should have packed a tent.
You should be able to street park in Allston (across the river, by the Business School) for free for a couple days if you're dilligent and read the street cleaning signs, and then you can take the t to wherever you're staying. Look near the intersection of Soldier's Field Road and Western Ave. to start. If you're nervous just come back and move your car every day but it should be fine.
Nice! Thanks for that info.
Oh and a Cambridge PSA: the Whole Foods is pretty great here.
Just curious if you walked there from HLS; if so, how long did it take?
I actually passed it as I was driving out of town to my hotel. I'd estimate that it would take about 25-30 minutes to walk it. Maybe less if you're particularly enthusiastic.
On the upside, the prices at this WF are surprisingly reasonable (as far as WF goes). A lot of items are actually cheaper here than at my Midwestern WF. Off the top of my head, I saw $3.99/doz organic eggs, $6 gallon organic milk, $1.40 for larabars, $4.99/lb organic strawberries, bananas .74/lb. Just for a reference point as to what to expect.
