Historical decor and highly popular - Wirth's is certainly worth dropping by for a beer or two in the course of an evening. Good selection of draft beers!

Singalong with Mel. What a fun experience that was! Lively evening with one table stealing the show with some excellent vocals. Bit of an Oktober fest themed bar. Disappointingly it was closed Sunday eve.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Yes, we did drink wine but I do not remember what kind, it was some month ago. But I remember it was OK - much better than the food!
