Artsy Eats...

THE BEST BURGER 
JOINT AROUND!!!

7 ounces of choice beef, ground fresh daily..
A Boston Landmark Since 1960!!

Yes, I was really excited to get down to business.. Mmmm!
 Today, I took a trip to my favorite part of town ~ Harvard Square, Cambridge!
I absolutely LOVE the vibe in Cambridge and around Harvard square.

TJ had to do some volunteer work, so I had the afternoon all to myself..

There are lots of FUN FUN little artsy stores, great people, tons of vendors
music, and lots to do around. Not to mention, my favorite people live a 
block or two away from the midst of this super fun artsy area. I always
find an excuse to getaway to "The Hammock" (What we've been 
calling Sam & Izzy's pad forever now! Its such a relaxing feeling to
visit and just coast through the day!). *Fun Fact* - Izzy's real name
is actually Isabella Swan.. It doesn't get any better then that!
These Guys R O CK!! 
After shopping around and stopping to talk to a few fun people, we finally
got hungry and decided to go for a bite. I was really looking forward to 
having an awesome burger as it had been a while since I ate at Bartleys, so
we decided to cruise over and visit.. Its usually a really crowded joint, but
it was a Friday work afternoon, so it was a dream come through to actually
walk in and not have to wait in line. Bartleys is ALWAYS CROWDED!!


We got a table right away and where really excited to take a look at the 
menu although we all knew what we wanted way ahead 
before even reaching the joint. lol. 


Bartleys burger's menu is quiet extraordinary, it boasts funky names such as
"The Mayor Mumbles Menino Burger "*MY ALL TIME FAVORITE*
(The burger actually reminds you in retrospect of our 
Mayor who mumbles quiet a bit.. lol.. It's hysterical..)
(1st non English speaking mayor) topped 
w/ fried egg, bacon, cheese & fries)
"The Facebook"  (watch for us in the movie) topped w/ 
BBQ sauce, & cole slaw, w/ French fries
 "The Afghan"(attack this & you’ll never leave) TURKEY burger 
w/ blue cheese dressing, hot sauce, and fries
"The Michelle Obama"(she’s hot & spicy) blue cheese burger
 with cajun seasoning and french fries

 
All the burgers are very well moderately priced and affordable.. 
Bartleys is also very well known for their frappes<--Izzy's FAVORITE
 and their Lime Rickey's <--MY FAVORITE!! YUMMY


The walls around the joint is filled with autograph's and historical plaques.

From Elvis to Marilyn Monroe and Famous Boxers. They have quiet
a great collection of original signatures and actual belongings to significant
and unique historical figures all around, it's exciting to read all the wall signs.


After browsing, we placed our orders, me and Sam decided to split a "mayor
mumbles menino burger", Izzy wanted nothing but her fav strawberry malt 
frappe and sweet potato fries..(Note: FAV THING -- Izzy is SUPER awesome 
for dipping her fries in her frappe.. It's sooo yummy! love it..) heehee..

Ahhhh -- I LOVE these guys..
The food wait was really quick, we started chatting up a storm for about 10mins,
when our beautiful waitress brought over our food. WHEW - That was quick.
T'was Time To CHOP!!!
"The Mayor Mumbles Menino Burger"
THIS BURGER IS SO HEAVENLY!!!!!! I KID YOU NOT!!!

We all got really silent FAST!!
"That's a sign of great food for the soul!"

Every bite of my burger was unbelievable as
always special and sinfully GREAT! I love how the egg breaks
and drips all around each mouthful and the crispy bacon..
 MMMM MMMMM FINGER LICKING GOOD!!

They also have the best sweet potato fries around town...
ALMOST GONE ~ ;))
I can't explain how great Bartleys is in words, it's a huge tourist favorite in the 
area, and every burger on the menu is simply unique and has a feature of its
own that pertains to its one of a kind name. It's MUST visit if you are ever
in the Boston area. Its located directly across from the Harvard yard, and
shares a space next door to the Harvard book stores! You can't miss it!

It's an award winning showcase Boston joint and in a really awesome area for
you to kick back, enjoy some great food, trek to some fun artsy stores, and 
enjoy great vendors, people and music all hours of the day. Really hope
you can stop in whenever you are in my city.. Ring me up for a burger!!

Its never a walk from "The Hammock" without fun foto findings..
I'm NOT sure where I'd specifically wear these, BUT I know I WANT THEM! HA
These Chairs ARE RIDIC "VINTAGE LOVE" YES - I'd love to have
them maybe for an art studio someday..

BoOoOks..
More ShOpPinG..

ArtsyGirl Look Book


Hello Artsy friends visiting today... It's been a rough week for me so far!
First Sia now me, YES - I'm still unfortunately 
C

(That dreaded word!)
Any home remedies for sinus infection..? Care to share..?

Anything beats weird cold sweats, half a face (YES - I feel as if 
half of my face is in SERIOUS delay! SO FREAKY!)

Anyway, here are a few things I've been doing on the couch that 
I wanted to share with you...Revisiting old posts!!!!

I just realized browsing around my blog how many exciting
events I've had taken place this year that I MUST scrap
about sooner or later! I have to admit, I'm the worse at
scrapping! We sit, get the photo's together, get a page or two 
and then BLAM -- just like that, I get interrupted and never go back!

One Of My Favourite Posts!!
 ~ My lil girls 1st Birthday Trinkets!
This was a post for her "Fairy Woodland Birthday Wreaths"
You can find this post HERE~
I have a few fun scrap pages that I love and a million scrap fun findings
and collections to go with stories set aside for scrapping! I really hope
I get a chance soon to just sit and get inspired to complete one book or 
two that are needing to be completed!! WISH ME LUCK!! 

Appreciating The Marrow!!!
This was one of my favourite meals ever!!!

This awesome post & recipe can be found here!!

HOPE YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO BROWSE AROUND 
AND REVISIT OLD POSTS AROUND YOUR WAY!!

BRINGS TO LIGHT JUST HOW MUCH YOU'VE GROWN
AND HOW MUCH YOU'VE TAKEN YOUR TIME TO
SHARE WITH THE WORLD AND ALL YOUR LOVELY
READERS THROUGH YOUR BLOG TIMELINE.

One last thing... I've watched PRINCESS & THE FROG
I think about 3times today.. Another favorite ~ couch loving movie!
I now know all the songs and lines and SIA KEEPS HITTING PLAY
OVER & OVER & OVER AGAIN!!!! 
RAY, LOUIS, MAMA ODIE ~ SAVE ME!!!
DIG A LIL DEEPER Y'ALL..

Thank you kindly for stopping in today...
Hope I'm better soon..
It's SO HOT TODAY!!!
STAY COOL & STAY ARTSY!!!
