BAM! Here we are doing a bit of gobblin’ and sippin’ at the Parker House in Boston. The Parker House is the longest-running continually operating hotel in the entire U.S. of A. The original Parker House was built in 1855 on the corner of Tremont and School Streets in the heart of Boston. The current building was constructed in 1927 at the same location and is still rockin’ and rollin’ as I write this to you. Lots of wonderful folks have stayed here: Charles Dickens lived here for two years, Longfellow, Emerson, Oliver Wendall Holmes Sr., John Wilkes Booth stayed here ten days before he shot Lincoln, Malcolm X was a busboy here, Ho Chi Minh worked in the kitchen for a bit, JFK had his bachelor party here, etc. and so on. Totally amazing history and atmosphere here. . .not flashy. . .just solid, clean, organized, wonderful staff, and lots of good stuff to eat and drink. Boston Cream Pie was ‘invented’ here–gotta have some. . .the chowdah is thick, creamy, and rich. . .the whiskey is poured generously. . .and the neighborhood is prime Boston. I love hangin’ at the Parker House, and you will too if you ever find yourself lookin’ for a place to rest your weary bones while visiting one of the great towns of America.
I send you ‘istoric vibes from the Parker House in Boston. . .feel them. . .they will help you stand up a little straighter.
