Boston.com - Just in time for Christmas, auctioneers on Dec. 14 will sell off the Hilltop Steakhouse’s trove of loot, some of it standard restaurant equipment like chairs, bars, ovens and grills, and some of it just a bit more kitschy. The Route 1 restaurant closed in October. Among the items: 24 Tiffany-style chandeliers, the mounted bison heads, 11 carved wood cigar store Indians, more than 60 Hilltop poster signs and other memorabilia, reproductions of Frederic Remington bronzes and prints, and many other Native American and Western paintings and prints. Prospective buyers can come by on Dec. 13 to view the items. The auction itself will take place in two stages — one for restaurant equipment at 10 am and a second at 2 pm. for the furnishings, memorabilia and other decor. In all, there are 1,000 items.
Welp it looks like the Barstool Repo Team is about to be called back into action. Now unlike the Schilling estate sale I’m not 100% sure what I want this time. The only thing I’m 100% sure of is that I got to wear my Schilling Rob to the auction. Let people know this isn’t my first rodeo. Like the last thing you want to do at a Hilltop Auction is get in a bidding war with the guy wearing a Schilling robe. Intimidation city. It’s a clear sign I’m here to stay. Anyway here are the items I have my eyes on in no particular order.
#1 – Cow
I like the idea of having a Hilltop Cow in the office. Like whenever I finally sell Barstool I’m gonna have the weirdest mishmosh of shit that I’ve accumulated through the blogging years. Just looking around right now I see a Rob Ford Bobblehead, an American Gerbil Society hat, A Dyson Fan, Logan Couture’s stick, a painting of Me, KFC and Big Cat in medieval times, Jenna Marbles dog toys, a signed Mr. Belding picture, and the Schilling robe. I feel like a Hilltop Cow would make a nice addition to the family.
#2. Hilltop Menu
Everything I said about #1 applies here.
#3 Bill’s Jacket
For the life of me I don’t know why Bill didn’t take his jacket, but whatever. I kind of dig it. If this is my size I think this is the top choice. I just know the First Lady won’t let me wear it in public with her because she’s uppity like that.
Actually scratch the jacket. I think this is my first choice. The wait for your number to be called sign. Deep down in places I don’t talk about at parties I NEED this on my wall. I want this on my wall. CARSON CITY PARTY OF 4!
