Ok, first things first - over the weekend, my husband and I were in a bar that had this at the end. And I thought (and said), hey, why don't we take the end cabinet door off in the kitchen, take the shelves out, and add boards to make a wine rack like this? And my husband was Totally. On. Board. Which is a very rare thing. So I think we are going to do this:
Also, I wanted to tell you more about our weekend in Boston. I had a whopping 9 comments on yesterday's post, which is actually a lot for me since Pinterest took over the world. I used to get 30 or more regularly, but now everyone pins and maybe comments there, but not so much here. Which is totally fine - but the 9 comments shows me that you guys were interested in the Boston hotel and restaurants, so here is more.
This is the Liberty Hotel, on Charles Street in Boston. Charles Street is a short, quiet little street of mostly antique stores and boutiques and a few restaurants:
The hotel is built in an old jailhouse. In fact, the brick and beams are all original to the jail. Here is the lobby:
The walkways that you see are where the guards used to patrol. Now, they make up what is called the "Catwalk." It is for hotel guests only, where you can sit and have drinks and appetizers and watch people. The night that we were there, there happened to be a fashion show taking place. There were an estimated 600 people in the lobby and on the catwalk, but we had a cozy little table and it was a blast.
And here is the restaurant Clink, just off the lobby. Again, the bricks and bars are original to the jail:
Another shot of the original jail portions of the lobby:
The interior courtyard where prisoners used to exercise:
The lobby during the day:
The original jail ceiling:
Several more photos of the lobby and catwalk - I loved it and could have spent days there:
And here is a room in the hotel, in an old cell:
But my favorite thing was the other restaurant in the building, independently owed. It is an Italian restaurant called Scampo:
The beef carpaccio:
Isn't that gorgeous!? And the food is totally amazing.
And here is the pizza place that we always go to when we are near Charles Street:
Check out the pizzas. AND they have a liquor license ;)
And here is our romantic little selfie on the catwalk at the Liberty Hotel :)
So that's it - that is the whole experience of our one day anniversary trip. It was worth every penny!
You won't regret it :)
