Arts Boston


This little kiosk in Boston’s Quincy Market sells tickets to concerts and theatrical performances.

Durgin Park


Durgin Park closed last night. It opened in 1827. The sign over their doors reads “Established before you were born”. It served traditional New England fare in Quincy Market. You could get lobster, prime rib, and pot roast as well as Indian Pudding (molasses and cornmeal) for dessert. After 192 years, it fell due to rising labor costs and losing business to the number of other options that diners have in the city. My wife and I have been there several times, usually for lunch. It always had a nostalgic feel to it. There are two potential buyers, but I don’t know if they will come through.

Boston Holiday Lights


A few more holiday lights from Boston.

Gingerbread


The culinary artists at Boston’s Park Plaza Hotel created a likeness of their hotel in gingerbread. I would have made more images but the lighting on the sculpture was really off. It’s quite the work of art.
