Downtown Boston has history bounding at every corner, something got signed, some got massacred, someone got hanged, here is the cemetery where “___” is, you have to love the plaques everywhere for the Historic Freedom Trail. I like the people that give history tours and dress up. I stay at a boutique hotel near the Old City Hall. There is a neighborhood market that I can buy soy milk, oatmeal and snacks. My favorite coffee shop is The Boston Common. I ate the best burger of my entire life at Scholars American Bistro & Cocktail Lounge!
Bacon fat burger, smoked maple syrup, melted brie, grilled tomato and soup at Scholars $12
As always, what makes Boston special to me is the incredible clients I know here. Thank you!
Manhattan is always good to me. I am so blessed to have such fine clients. This is another city where I stay at the same little boutique hotel. I love it, oldstyle charming, the staff is nice to me, there is a kitchenette & microwave to prepare most of my meals and there is room to play in my room. There is a grocery store four blocks away and I have a favorite 24 hour local market that has buffet counters of food if I need something fast between work. The view this time:
East Midtown, the view from my patio.
Philly is always a favorite stop on my tour because one of my best friends moved here from LA and I have a new friend of going on three years now here in Philly, both of whom I look forward to visiting with during my stay.
Philly is also where I take a morning to do laundry.
I am a real person, I do laundry =P
One of my favorite restaurants while working in Philadelphia is Mixto Cafe. It is a Cuban restaurant just around the corner from my hotel.
Maduro Relleno $7 at Mixto Cafe
Another favorite is the Garces Trading Company a few blocks away:
Moules Frites blue hill bay mussels, allagash-saffron broth, duck fat fries $12 at Garces Trading Company
The Spaniard grilled chicken, romesco aioli, applewood smoked bacon, marinated tomato $10 at The Garces Trading Company
and over one of these fine meals, I was with one of my best friends, Astra. Her brother went to BurningMan this last August. He had lots of positive stories to tell her and Astra is wanting to go herself. She will be taking my reins, delivery mail each morning as part of the BurningMan Pony Express. I am beyond thrilled.
Hide & Go Seek coupled with Chase meets Tag Your It makes for one very fun day. I love my time with the LA Pony and Critter Club, I always look forward to playing and hanging with these people.
