HEAVEN, BY HOTEL STANDARDS
The History of the Omni Parker HouseHeaven, By Hotel Standards is a delightfully anecdotal and lavishly illustrated new book by MV co-director, Susan Wilson. The Omni Parker House has played an integral role in the history of Boston since 1855. In the culinary world, it's been heralded as the home of the Parker House Roll and Boston Cream Pie--and a place where Ho Chi Minh, Malcolm X, and Emeril Lagasse once worked in the kitchens. It's where the brightest lights of America's Golden Age of Literature--writers like Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, and Longfellow--regularly met in the legendary Saturday Club, where world-class musicians and theatricians have been inspired and nurtured, and where generations of local and national politicians assembled for private meetings, press conferences, and power breakfasts. Price: $25 plus tax and mailing (same as the DVDs listed below)
