I've written a new blog post for ya: Travels, Tribulations and the diary of a food-a-holic. 

I recently had the chance to travel to Boston for a Marketing Conference/Expo called InBound.  I spent my days in sessions, bold talks and software deep dives - while enjoying local food truck fare for lunch - and my nights in search of Boston's famed North End eateries.  I wasn't disappointed by any of it. 

Click through to read the rest and see some pics I took.
