Kouign-amann (Breton cake) in the Boston area

I believe the Queens pastry from B&B in the North End is pretty much Kouign-Amann, and it's pretty awesome.

need seafood

When was the last time the maple leafs hoisted the cup ;-)... For your BU and craft beer rec you could do a lot worse than Lower Depths which is next door to ICOB... Also Cornwalls across the street has lots if BU kids and a decent tap selection....if you like music check out the Paradise, Great Scott or Brighton Music Hall ( all in BU territory) and you can get decent brews at either sunset location or travel a bit further to the Publick House or Deep Ellum for better selection and quality.

Apple picking?

I've done Russell Orchards and Cider Hill, both pretty similar also for no frill Dowse in Sherborn is good. Cider hill has good cider and donuts as well as a lot of other produce.

As weird as it may sound, East Coast oysters taste colder to me... That being said I do occasionally enjoy a Kusshi or 6 ;-)
