Olde Heritage Tavern


12 Housatonic St # 201,
Lenox, MA 01240

Rocking chair, decent food, nice wine glass, but SLOW service. Oh boy. It’s Saturday and they have only one girl working outside. We were thinking to go to Cork n’ Hearth again didn’t want to spend a lot of time, so picked this one.

Many restaurants close after 2:30 in Lenox, even on Saturday. Oh well.

The Shed


Koussevitzky Music Shed @ Tanglewood is the major venue. We take in the Friday evening concert @ 8 pm and Saturday morning rehearsal @ 10:30 am. Both are great, and we’re pretty lucky with the weather – foretasted as raining.

They’ve added many amenities – eateries to building. The compound is nicely kept – thanks for us too -:) we keep it clean as much as we can – after the performance, look, how clean and green it is!

The ushers are mostly volunteers. One older lady I spoke with, she was doubting her outfit, oh boy. She looks so put together, to me. The old fashioned bell and bell ringer.

       

David Zinman, conductor
Yo-Yo Ma, cello

MOZART Symphony No. 25
SCHUMANN Cello Concerto
SCHUMANN Symphony No. 2

Watching David Zinman diligently working, arms flying and all, I thought he looks like a hand-pull noodle maker 手拉面.

Nejaime’s Wine Cellars


60 Main St,
Lenox, MA 01240

My favorite wine store in Tanglewood. The food they offer is more suitable for picnic. The $39.99 for 4 bottle of World Wide Stout beer. Oh boy.

The Applewood smoke duck is really good. So it the Rosali cracker and salmon.

Tanglewood, MA


297 West St,
Lenox, MA 01240

We haven’t been to Tanglewood for a few years. And the forecast says rains on both days. However, both days turn out to be great. There are many upgrades. The compound is very nicely kept. I’m wondering, where is New York Philharmonic’s dig away from Lincoln Center?

Seiji Ozawa Hall

Ozawa served as the music director for BSO for 29 years, guess he deserves a hall named after him @ Tanglewood. It is gorgeous, inside and out.  I prefer to sit outside because I can hear the sound of trees, its leaves and wind. I’ve never been there at night, so I can’t speak about stars. It will be next time.
