Why I Took My Dad to Boston to See the Celtics Play

I recently visited Boston and got to cross off an item on my bucket list.

In February 2019, I took my dad to Boston to see the Boston Celtics play at TD Garden.

Taking my dad to see a Celtics game has been on my bucket list since I was a kid.

You see, my dad is die-hard Celtics fan. Literally, there are baby pictures of me wearing a Celtics bib.

The love for this team runs deep, so I’ve always wanted to treat my dad to a game in Boston.

Visiting Boston:

We spent the day walking around downtown before checking into our hotel at the Omni Parker House.

We saw the state capitol building as well as Boston Commons, which was absolutely beautiful!

I was really impressed with the beautiful architecture in the city.

After walking around downtown, we went to Serafina for dinner.

The dinner at Serafina was fantastic; it’s an Italian restaurant that is very gluten-free friendly. We started with a salmon and tuna tartar, and my dad got the veal scallopini and I ordered the salmon for the main dish.

After dinner, we caught an Uber and went to TD Garden to watch the Celtics take on the LA Clippers!

One of the fun things about the game was that the coach of the LA Clippers is Doc Rivers, who was the coach that led the Celtics to their last championship. (facts learned from dad, of course.) 

Another fun thing about the trip was vlogging it. My dad is seriously *SO* supportive on my YouTube channel.

He is comfortable in front of the camera and never gives me a hard time about creating content when we’re together.

Seriously, my dad really is my most loyal YouTuber viewer and blog reader, and he’s always emailing me feedback to help me improve. 

One of the not-fun things about the game was that they lost.

The Celtics lost in a devastating upset after having a 28-point lead at one point in the game. I mean, we went into the half with a 21-point lead. We thought we had this win in the bag. Clearly, we were wrong!

The Boston Celtics didn’t show up with their A-game that night, and we were bummed to see that.

That being said, it was an incredible 20-hour trip to Boston. If I could hop on a plane and do it all again, I would.

There are few things that make me happier than getting quality time with my dad. 

What’s on your bucket list?
