burgers and books, a typical evening

It is restaurant week here in New York. To me this is something Couples do. Yes, Couples with a capital C. Also on that list are weekends at bed and breakfast's upstate. Perhaps my male counterpart will arrive by Fall so that I can see the leaves change. Doubtful. Central Park it is.

Anyway, back to the food. A good friend of mine, one of my first friends in the city, is moving back home in a few days so tonight we had her farewell dinner at one of the several locations participating in this week's restaurant bribery. We chose Aspen and I had a great arugula salad with goat cheese, bison sliders, and then molten chocolate cake. In all honesty, I've had better. The salad was good and the chocolate cake was too but it would have been nice to have something amazing for an entree. Plus the service was kind of lousy and the atmosphere (think Aspen, Colorado all NYC chic) was kind of weird. Oh well. I got to go to a fancy-ish restaurant with a good friend - one who I thought would outlast me in the city. Funny how that stuff works.

I'm currently reading this book. I'm pretty in to Young Adult lit right now after reading the Hunger Games. This one took a while to get into but it is getting kind of intriguing now. So now I ask, do I watch my Netflix movie and chat with my family and friends on the phone tonight or do I read? Hmmm... tough choice.

This is completely random...I'm always searching for new blogs (I have downtime at work) and found you through Red Curl Girl. Ok, so I check out your blog and this first post, this book you're reading, I picked it up at my library. Looked interesting. How random that the random blogger I decide to check out today is reading this. Hmmm...

Now, I'll go check out the rest of your blog. Have a great day!

Thanks for your comment. I don't know if I have a blog presence or not - I know that a lot of my friends blog, and so we check out each others blogs a lot. I need to put you on my blogroll! I'm sorry! I usually read blogs at work and update at home, so that's why.

I don't know, I think maybe it helps that I've been doing it for 2 years now? I have no clue! But I don't really get all that many hits. I just pretend I do.
