|eighteen of us--missing thirty two Honors kids!|
The Top of the Taj is literally on the enclosed roof on the top of the uber fancy Taj Hotel. It overlooks the Public Gardens and State House but also down Boylston Street--gorgeous views! This event cost money ($20) and there was a slight snafu a few days prior: about 450 students bought tickets, over double the number from years past, and the space can only hold 200 at a time. They ended up splitting the event so instead of four hours there were two two-hour shifts. I attended the 7 PM one, which nearly all my friends went to. To make up for the error, they added in a dessert bar--which was an odd contrast to the french fries, tater tots, and mini burgers they offered as food. I stuck with the desserts and the food brought around on trays periodically--California rolls and spring rolls. (I was very excited about the macarons, and ate far too many!)

The Taj did have rather expensive drinks--$10 for a glass of unknown wine--so my roommates Taina, Mary, August, and I went to the Top of the Hub for equally expensive drinks, but ones more deservedly so! After 8 PM the Top of the Hub has a minimum of $24 per person, so two drinks it was: blueberry mojito and a ginger lemondrop. Many of the other 7 o'clockers had the same idea, and so there was very much an Emerson takeover on the top of the Prudential Building :)
Three big events rounded of the Tuesday of my senior week!
