Cocktails and Butter at the Beagle

April 13, 2015

Dear Reader,

Sunday was 68 degrees my dear friends. Sundresses were donned, paths were trod, espresso was sipped in a JP cafe.Cocktails and Butter at the Beagle-The Person I Am Tonight

Where better to spend the day than in the Arnold Arboretum? Winding paths, hills, streams alongside paths covered in rhododendron-budded branches… This is where I chose to spend my Sunday.Cocktails and Butter at the Beagle-The Person I Am Tonight

The arboretum is well worth a visit, if a bit hard to get to. It is at the very tail end of the Orange Line but I suggest you do as I did and get off at Heath Street on the Green Line, then walk a leisurely hour through the heart of JP, stop for coffee along the way, and arrive in plenty of time to wander over the whole expanse without having to touch the Orange Line. After a gorgeous day there, dinner called me and my companion back to Coolidge Corner. I’ve now done brunch, lunch, and dinner at the Regal Beagle and each was a slightly different experience- yet all were incredibly delicious. Yesterday, however, was truly something. We basically ordered everything that was steeped in butter. We began with gnocchi with prosciutto and scallions.Cocktails and Butter at the Beagle-The Person I Am Tonight

We had coctails- The Aviation for him and sangria for me.Cocktails and Butter at the Beagle-The Person I Am Tonight

I had mac and cheese because I am wholly unoriginal and totally predictable (but there was truffle oil!).Cocktails and Butter at the Beagle-The Person I Am Tonight

We were way too full for dessert (first time for everything) but some after dinner cocktails sealed up the evening.Cocktails and Butter at the Beagle-The Person I Am Tonight

And then I bought six books. What can I say? A few cocktails and I have no moderation… drunk bookshopping is not for the faint of heart.Cocktails and Butter at the Beagle-The Person I Am Tonight
