The weekend

I had a delicious prime rib and a wonderfully dense, moist gingerbread last weekend at the Waybury Inn, where Deb and I hosted the annual Beau Ties holiday party. We held our party post-holidays so that we could keep up with last-minute gift orders!

The Waybury was a new destination for us: Our previous celebratory spot was the Dog Team Tavern, which burned to the ground in a spectacular and mysterious fire some months ago.
The inn was very welcoming and we think it will be the perfect spot for the start of a new tradition.

You may be familiar with the Waybury and not even realize it. The Waybury's claim to fame, in addition to being a fine inn with a charming restaurant and pub, is its 80s-era appearance on the Newhart show. The building's facade starred in every episode as the Stratford Inn.
