Funniest Tourist Story Contest – Win a $30 Online Gift Card

In Boston, especially in the North End, we deal with tourists everyday. I recently was asked by a man in front of Mike’s Pastry where to find the North End. Last year, a lady approached me and talked slow and loud in her best Bah-stan accent as if I didn’t speak English.

Tell us your funniest tourist story! Post your story as a reply in the contest Forum thread. Best story in the Forum receives a $30 online gift card. The last day to post a story is October 15, 2010.

Winner is the best story chosen by me, at my complete discretion. The story must have taken place in Boston. Please keep it clean. Long or short, old or new is fine. You don’t have to live in the North End/Waterfront area to submit a story. I will announce the winning story in the forum thread.

Please include your email address in the reply form so I can contact you if you win. (Your email will not show up in your post or on the website.) This is the first contest on Thanks to Joyce S. for the idea. If it goes well, we will do more in the future.
