Highlights From The Weekend

photo-5With Mother Nature finally granting Boston some spring-like weather, it was a fantastic weekend to be out and about. Add in Bruins and Red Sox games, plus Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger and the city was positively bustling. From great runs and walks, to seeing friends and an out of town adventure, here’s how I spent my weekend.

On The Town: Drinks at Clio

IMG_4664I’ll let you in on a little secret – Clio has some of the best bartenders in the city. Ok, so perhaps that’s not so much a secret as it is the truth. Clio is one of my go-to’s when I want to catch up with a good friend during the week (weekends tend to be too busy). Tucked inside the Eliot Hotel in the Back Bay, the space is small, but well-appointed. ¬†There’s a massive drink menu to read through, or you can turn to one of the friendly bartenders. Simply describe your favorite flavors, spirits, etc. and they will make you a personalized cocktail. And by personalized, don’t be surprised if you see ice cubes made of beets or honeydew melon, or a random tool procured to muddle or torch various ingredients right in front of you.

Although I’ve enjoyed many different drinks at Clio, I do adore the Pimms Cocktail. It’s refreshing, has fresh fruit and instantly transports me to a tropical beach. Which, as we’ve seen with this terrible weather, is a gift in itself!

Clio is located at the corner of Massachusetts Ave and Commonwealth Ave. inside the Eliot Hotel in Boston’s Back Bay.


On The Town: #DuckieRose at Highball Lounge

IMG_4873If you haven’t been to Highball Lounge yet – you should! Tucked inside the Nine Zero Hotel (a Kimpton property) on Tremont Street, Highball Lounge is the perfect mix of upscale and good old fashioned fun. The interior is upscale yet cozy, with modern features and a mix of classic games like Jenga, Connect Four, Uno and Twister. The theme also extends to the food and drink menus, from classic highball cocktails, to the adorable #DuckieRose, a blended wine cocktail which comes complete with a mini rubber duckie! If you’re feeling especially naughty, try the tater tot nachos. They are just as delicious and decadent as they sound!

Highball Lounge is located at 90 Tremont Street in Boston, MA.
