Second Anniversary

Two years ago today Maura and I got married! We spent the weekend in Lawrence at the Eldridge Hotel.

The hotel has an interesting history, as does Lawrence. The existing hotel is actually the third iteration. The first – The Free State Hotel – was burned down by the pro-slavery sheriff Sam Jones, the second by Quantrill and his raiders.

The hotel was beautifully renovated and reopened in May 2005. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Everything looked as historically accurate as possible. The staff was very courteous, if a little impersonal. Room service was prompt and tasty! We had a great weekend checking out the town. We go to Lawrence pretty frequently, since most of Maura’s family lives there, but we spent more time downtown than we normally get a chance to. We found all sorts of treats!

Here’s the view from our Mass. Street window:

Dinner at Ten was excellent. The winner, in my opinion, were the truffle and parmesan fries I had with my garlic rubbed ribeye, which was also superb. I know, fries, right? But wow, my mouth is watering just thinking about them! Maura had the corn & crab encrusted sea bass and it was incredible as well. Check out the menu. They also have a great bar and wine selection.

It was a great weekend spent with my wonderful wife

Here’s to many more years together, Maura. I love you
