Last year I found the perfect Valentine’s Day card for Drew (see February 15, 2011 post)
This year I received the best ever Valentine’s Day gift from my drew:
Drew and I met the girls in the city and we did some happy hour drinking. First stop was Cafe Mogadar — 2 free appetizers with every drink. I ordered what should have been safe: beets with feta and onions and an order of olives. I ate an olive and felt a little itch. Can’t believe they sprinkled sesame seeds on the olives. (And yes, I did mention my allergies.) I’m pretty sure the olive I put in my mouth didn’t have any seeds on it. I broke out in a sweat, pushed the plate away, and managed to stay alive. Next stop: ten degrees bar where they served 2-for-1 drinks til 8. Nik’s Moscow Mule (Kettle One & Ginger Beer on the rocks … good one.)
Left the girls there to finish off the drinks and have dinner on us and off we went to City Winery to see Richard Thompson — good food, good music — great place.
The chocolate roach came in the mail a few days later. I sent a picture to Rachel.
me: maybe I should save the roach for a family dessert.
Rachel: Ahhh wait a real choc covered one!? So they killed it!?
Can’t wait to visit my little Max at the Bronx Zoo! Wonder if I have to pay admission?
