Friday! Let’s start with a cupcake. Ignore my unusually wrinkled palms and just look at how cute this little key lime creation is.Back to our usually scheduled programming: a run! Taking photos of quiet, green, suburban scenery is a pretty big change from my old shots of crowded and chaotic DC streets. Hope you like blue skies and electricity poles!I covered about five miles at an easy pace. The past few weeks were pretty intense while I was training up for my half marathon, so I was definitely ready for some easy rest this week.
Which meant I had more time to party!
Starting with the worst date Anthony and I have ever been on. Part I of the date was a drink at Patterson House — but since it was so packed and we couldn’t get in, we walked to a bar called Aura down the street.I could dedicate a whole post to how comical our experience was, but I’ll keep things short and sweet. (Not as overly sweet as my terrible, dirty-sock tasting margarita was, though!)We were going to order wine, but when we saw the bartender mix up Merlot for Riesling (and then discover a bottle of warm Riesling, and proceed to shake it up with ice to serve it “chilled”) we decided cocktails might be a safe bet. They weren’t.
The chicken flatbread “nachos,” however, were acceptable (once we finally got silverware to eat them with).ANYWAYS, after our totally fabulous time at Aura, we went to the final shows of the Nashville Film Festival. We saw a movie about a freak clone baby that ends up killing all the other characters (including another baby). The whole evening was so terrible that Anthony and I just had to laugh. Even when the clone baby was murdering people.
A couple days after that, though, I had a Nashville experience that was good! But then again it is impossible for pizza to be bad.Mafiaoza’s, I’ll be back for more of you (once I finish my ginormous box of leftovers).The three of us have known each other since we were about 5 years old. Reunited!Just realized that this post started with a cupcake and ended with pizza. You’re welcome
Have a good weekend!
