As you can probably tell from reading my posts, I am a huge foodie. This past weekend was a holiday AND it was my 23rd birthday, so naturally I allowed myself to indulge in as many delicacies as wanted. To kickoff my birthday this past Saturday, my good friend Brianna and I went to brunch at The Beehive, known for having live music during brunch time.
I was super excited to go since the previous weekend I had brunch at their sister restaurant, the Beat Hotel in Harvard Square. The wildflower honey & lemon pancakes I had there were delicious, so I knew my meal at the Beehive would be top-notch.
As expected, the Beehive didn’t disappoint – we were even given the “best seat in the house” according to the hostess, who told us Jimmy Kimmel had sat at our table the weekend before (starstruck!). We had a great view of the live jazz band on stage while sipping on sparkling cocktails and enjoying the eggs shakshuka, a Moroccan twist on the traditional eggs benedict dish.
Our stellar view of the live jazz band (+cocktails).
After such a delicious brunch, we walked it off touring the Freedom Trail and walking through Boston Common on a beautiful July afternoon. We even got some selfies with famous statues of our Founding Fathers!
Just hanging out with George Washington.
Nothing beats a view of blue skies in the Public Garden.
Hope you all are having a great week and catching up on some much needed rest after the long holiday weekend. Below you’ll find some of my favorite links this week:
