city sunset

Why hello there and happy 2018! It’s been a while, right? Despite the freezing temperatures, I’ve been kicking around town. I went to dinner at my friends place. (Amazing view from their condo, right?)

mo

Saw some shows at the 9:30 Club. (this was Mø & Cashmere Cat. Loved Mø. Think I’m way too old to appreciate Cashmere Cat. Lesson learned).

tile cork

Drank espresso and grabbed snacks for a cheese and charcuterie plate at the newly revamped Cork Restaurant & Market (which is so damn cute it’s unreal and I really, really love this tile).

gaslight

Checked out Gaslight Tavern, the latest bar/restaurant in the ‘hood. It opened Monday. I read about it a couple of weeks ago and since it was my Mr.’s birthday, it seemed like an opportune time to give it a peek.

aperol-spritz

Last weekend, I went to Ghibellina and had my first Aperol Spritz of the summer.  It was just as delicious and refreshing as I remembered. I have a feeling I’ll be indulging in a few more as the summer continues.  For your drinking pleasure, the recipe is below.

Aperol Spritz
3 parts prosecco
2 parts aperol
1 part soda water
garnish with an orange slice

Saluti!
