And what good is a birthday party without a lil’ booze and some cocktail weiners?? No good is right!!
We’ve got a nice lil’ spot here in Boston, over in Beacon Hill, and we have the good fortune to be on the downside of the hill with no larger building blocking the view of the river. If you know anything about 4th of July Celebrations you know that Boston does it in style. Really, it’s the Birthplace of America, so where else would throw the biggest birthday party? There’s a big concert down on the Charles River and that’s where the fireworks barge is. View of the river from the roof + fireworks barge on the river= best fireworks viewing ever. (Note that I said roof and not roof deck. It really is just our roof, & the two adjecent buildings, no railing. eek.)
But, everyone promised to be careful so we set up shop with some sumer brews, a couple of mojitos, and of course, pigs in a blanket & strawberry shortcake. How very American.
