Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is a two-stage cache. At stage 1, you will find a life-size picture of the 2nd stage. Pay careful attention to the picture because there can be significant GPS bounce at the 2nd stage.

The difficulty of the 2nd stage is timing. Muggles and muggle vehicles are everywhere so identify where the cache is and plan your strategy very carefully. Make sure there are no pedestrians or cars waiting at the light then time your grab perfectly. Bring the container elsewhere to sign.

Richie Barron

Richie Barron, Newton native and George Washington University graduate, began his culinary career in Washington D.C., working at a series of restaurants and hotels. He entered the Culinary Institute of America and upon graduation helped to open Il Capriccio in 1981. At this time the restaurant was in the back of the building directly across from the 1st stage of this cache.

Greatly influenced by original owner Enzo Danesi, a native of Milan, Rich developed his unique interpretation of Northern Italian cooking, using the freshest products, cooking them simply and maximizing the tastes and textures as only the Italians can do.

After a stint as Sous Chef at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, Rich returned to Il Capriccio, where he has since elevated the restaurant to its current position as a nationally known culinary destination. In 1994, the restaurant moved to the location of the 2nd stage of this cache.

While not at the restaurant, Rich is an avid gardener and a rabid Patriot’s fan. He has been married to his beautiful wife, Doreen Thompson for 28 years and has two wonderful daughters, Meaghan and Tessa.
