Boston, Massachusetts

Went to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts this evening for the free showing of the “Americans in Paris” exhibit featuring Whistler, Sargent, Homer, and Cassett among others. Truthfully, I’m not a big fan of American art, but I must admit that it was a bit awe-inspiring to stand in front of “Whistler’s Mother.” I also enjoyed some of Sargent’s work. I’m still a bigger fan of Vermeer though.

The picture is my meal for the evening. I had this brilliant idea that I wanted to be able to say I had eaten pate at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Well. We can say I tasted it. If you’ve never tried it, don’t. Looks, smells, and tasted like cat food. So here’s the run-down of food, most of which I didn’t eat: country style pate with cornichons, triple creme cheese with Shiraz jelly, roasted zucchini with feta and thyme tart, and grapes.

Ah well. It was a nice evening out, if a little high brow for my tastes.
