Spirits of Boston Dinner!

April 24, 2014

Thursday - 6:00pm

When it comes to the spirit of New England, there's no place like the Wayside Inn, and when it comes to the Spirits of Boston, Bully Boy Distillers set the bar.

On Thursday, April 24th, join us at Longfellow's Wayside Inn for delicious dinner and drinks, featuring the best locally distilled spirits available. The night will begin with a reception, featuring the Inn's famous Coow Woow made with Bully Boy White Rum, and a wonderful cheese and vegetable spread. Guests will then partake in a tasting of the various spirits Boston has to offer, while discussing the history of Bully Boy's handcrafted spirits. Following this tasting, attendees will enjoy a full dinner including our traditional clam chowder, a fresh salad with cranberry vinaigrette, Prime Rib au jus with homemade popover and seasonal vegetables, before finishing the night with warm Indian Pudding.

The event is $50.00 per person, all inclusive. Tickets and information are available by calling the Wayside Inn at 978.443.1776.

A Dinner with Jerusha

Help keep alive the spirit of Jerusha Howe, the beloved sister and daughter of the Howe family of Innkeepers, original proprietors of the Wayside Inn. Jerusha, who passed before her time, lonesome and ailing due to a broken heart, is known to inhabit the walls of the Inn to this day.

Join the Wayside Inn and Paranormal Boston in celebrating her life and times through story and celebration. Through history, romance, tragedy, and mystery, learn what truly happened to the "Belle of Sudbury" and feel her spirit first hand.
