In August, my best friend from Florida flew up for a visit with her fiance. During their visit we did a little sightseeing. The first day we went to Salem MA. We went by The Witch House, Salem Witch Museum, Hawthorne Hotel, and The Burying Point. We also stopped in at Crow Haven Corner where my friends signed up for readings.
There was a bit of a wait until their reserved times so we walked to the El Punto Neighborhood to check out the amazing street art at Punto Urban Art Museum! Walking back to Crow Haven Corner we detoured to Kakawa Chocolate House for some chocolate elixirs and truffles. Unbelievably delicious!
The readings were hit and miss for my friends one was okay and didn't seem very relative and the other was amazing and hit close to her heart.
The next day we drove into Boston and met up with Greg who was hopping off a ferry from a work outing. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers at Tia's.
From there we walked to the North End. We walked by Paul Revere's House, Paul Revere's Statue, The Old North Church, and Copp's Hill Burying Ground. Before heading home, we stopped for pastries and calzones from Bova's Bakery.
Over the weekend of their visit, we decided to try our luck at Encore Casino in Everett. I don't know if it's always like this or not but parking was a pain! We ended up circling and circling looking for a spot. We finally found one on a lower level and made our way inside. We didn't make dinner plans on this visit but are actually heading back there to try Mystique this weekend.
Encore Casino is beautiful! It's elegant, modern, and a welcoming atmosphere plus it's smoke-free!!! We ordered drinks at the bar and luckily we got to do so just in time. The bartender starts at the person in front of him and then goes to their left. So if the person in front of them start and you go to that person's left-hand side you're out of luck!
No one in our group one big but it was a terrific night out!
