Visitor Tips and News About Largest Ball Of String, Not Twine
Weston's famous ball of string finally has a more permanent place for display at the Bowman Restaurant and O'Malley's Irish Pub. Located on the back covered deck of the restaurant, it overlooks a gravel parking lot while securely fastened to a small trailer.
Even if you are in Weston when the restaurant and pub are closed, you can enjoy the ball in its more accessible home.[Phil Pasquini, 07/15/2010]
