Senator Hart's Annual St. Patrick's Day Breakfast
When I was a little kid, once a year I would climb into bed with my parents on Sunday afternoon to watch "the funny breakfast" with them, and even though I had no idea what it was, I always got excited for it. Having fond memories of watching this Boston tradition on TV, it has been so much fun to attend recently - even though the jokes aren't nearly as raunchy as they used to be!

The breakfast is held within the South Boston Convention and Exhibition center -- Click HERE to see the whole room.
I was surprised to see my photo from last year hanging up! Looks great!

A Tribute to Henry Z. Steinway - M. Steinert & Sons Boston
Last night I accompanied my father to the M. Steinert & Sons Steinway store on Boylston Street for a celebration honoring the late Henry Z. Steinway. As the legendary Steinway piano company recently surpassed its 155th year of business, Henry Z. Steinway - the great-grandson of the founder - died at 93. He was the last remaining member of the Steinway family to serve as President. As the world changes, Steinway continues to create the same luxurious pianos enjoyed by generations of enthusiasts.
