President's Day Festivities

Matt and I are going to Orlando on Thursday so Matt's parents came into the city today with a friend of theirs for dinner & drinks and then to bring Bailey home with them. After a quick tour of 450 sq ft, our home, and then our roof deck we headed next door to have drinks at Mooo.... I had an Aloe Rangpur which was Tanqueray Rangpur gin with aloe vera and lime. It was really good! I think I've discovered I am a fan of citrus gin!

After cocktails we took the T to Capital Grille which is my in-laws favorite Boston restaurant.

For dinner Matt and I shared our standard Kobe Encrusted Aged Sirloin.

Shared sides included mashed potatoes and asparagus.

To accompany our red meat we had a delicious bottle of zinfandel.

The table shared a platter of desserts that included cheesecake, creme brulee, coconut cream pie and chocolate espresso cake. A brightly lit flash photo of the platter after we all dug in:

Accompanying dessert, a delicious cappuccino

All of us at the dinner table.

It was a great night! Delicious food and great company!!!

Now I'm off to catch up on some television before bed. I can't believe I have to go back to work tomorrow! Thank goodness it's a short week before we're in Orlando!

Happy President's Day!!
