Some "Sweet" Summer Recommendations from Watsonville

Here are five recommendations for some super sweet stuff...

1. Sweet Art...

...at the MFA in Boston.

Favorite collections include Asian galleries and modern art. 
If you're in Boston and you're looking for the perfect outing, stop by.
You can browse around in air-conditioned happiness.
There's also a great restaurant and gift shop.

2. Sweet BBQ...

...at Sweet Cheeks in Fenway.

If you like Top Chef and incredible food, you can't miss Sweet Cheeks.
This BBQ joint--in the Fenway Triangle in Boston--is Chef Tiffani Faison's exquisite creation.
The biscuits with honey butter are so good, even my Filipino husband--who doesn't like bread--was IN LOVE. Every single thing we tried was superb.

3. Sweet book...

...The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy Reichert

Yes, the Big Misunderstanding goes on a bit too long, but this book was so adorable, I didn't mind.
Reichert brings Milwaukee alive through food, quirky characters, and second chances.
This is a lovely beach read...light, sweet, and fun.
And now I want cake.

4. Sweet Abs...

...on Tarzan, King of the Jungle and King of the Hot Body!

Perfect summer movie. Epic music, gorgeous cinematography, beautiful people.
And Alexander Skarsgard's dirty, flexing, sweaty body.

Happy Summer!

5. Sweet antiques...

...at the Quechee Antique Mall in Quechee, Vermont.

If you're looking for a fun summer activity, Quechee Vermont has a lot to offer. Stop at the antique mall for McCoy pottery and antique tins, then watch the glass-blowers at Simon Pearce, and finish off with the best lunch of your life at Simon Pearce Restaurant while overlooking the Ottauquechee River.

It just doesn't get better than this.

Happy Summer!

Love, Penny
