I mentioned yesterday that my Sunday afternoon involved visiting a museum and drinking some of the good stuff. The family I babysit for managed to score two free tickets to Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, and since I’ve never been, I figured I should go before I leave.
What I didn’t know was that there was a breathtaking exhibit of Chihuly’s blown glass creations on display. What a treat! I’m honestly not a big fan of those 1800’s paintings of plump naked women (though it does build my self-confidence:)), but I love modern paintings, photography, and sculpture. This was right up my alley. In fact, I think I’m obsessed!
Take a look for yourself!
Isn’t it amazing? It’s also cool that he’s an American artist and his work can be found all over the U.S., especially on the west coast near his gallery in Seattle.
What took place after the museum was also a big treat. We were in the neighborhood of one of my all time favorite bars in Boston (the Mission), and I knew we needed to go one last time before we move. I started with a half pint of a Sixpoint Sweet Action, a cream ale brewed with peach. It was light and hoppy and very unique. As you know, I’m very influenced by the weather, and since it was 50 and rainy, I think it was just a bit too summery for the moment. So, my second beer was dark. I got the Delirium Nocturnum – a perfect Belgian beer that somehow tasted light and crisp, despite the color.
