Celebration Weekend

We met through blogging, chatted via Twitter, and connected in real life at a wine tasting and tomato dinner, and this past Saturday, a group of Boston friends celebrated a pretty epic bachelorette party day.

Alicia, Daisy, Megan, Michelle and I were once blogger friends, now I just consider them great friends, people who share a lot of the same interests: food, wine, cocktails, travel, blogging, and a love of fun. They (and the other blogger friends I have made) are the absolute best part of blogging, and I could not wait to celebrate upcoming weddings with them.

It all kicked off at the Royal Sonesta in Cambridge, which offers some of the best views the area has to offer. We were able to snag the Artist’s Suite, which, in addition to being spacious, gorgeous, and offering this view, had some pretty great décor was well.

The room proved to be a perfect place for sipping on bubbly and doing some much-needed catching up.


Light and refreshing Prosecco in a beautiful bottle, and a favorite for toasting wonderful women, Veuve Clicquot. Megan made us all gift bags with mini wedding cakes in them. They were adorable!

Our friends at the Royal Sonesta treated us to our afternoon snacks, a beautiful display of cheese, fruit, and meat, along with individually bottled Corpse Revivers, a nod to ArtBar’s absinthe-tasting.

There was lunch at ArtBar, complete with adult Root Beer Floats (House Vanilla Vodka, Root, Sarsparilla, Salted Cream, CO2).

I went for a lighter option, the eggplant and tomato soup, just enough to fill me up and to save room for snacking later on.

We lounged poolside, sipped more bubbly, and got ready for a night on the town that started with oysters and cocktails at Abigail’s in Kendall Square.


But it didn’t stop there! Stay tuned for dinner at The Blue Room, coming tomorrow.

Did you do any celebrating this weekend?

    What a lovely time! The best views really are in Cambridge. :-)

    I love the Blue Room! I haven’t been in a couple of years. Have to make it a point to get back someday.

    That view really is gorgeous. I need to get over to their patio once more before I leave.
