summer: I wanna dip my fries in it!
Even though it happened yesterday at lunch, I can unofficially consider this to be how my weekend started. Oh it’s been a rather foul and moody week at the office. The massive amounts of sunshine have helped, but a 3-day weekend will be even nicer. I’m hoping to take a day trip in the opposite direction of the beach-goers, though I wouldn’t mind a beach trip at some point this year.
Still, the Five Guys indulgence didn’t fail to satisfy, though sangria night with Kyle at Marx Cafe was a bit more mixed last night. This is my second visit there where the sangria had clearly been made without sugar. I have nothing against drinking straight red wine, but cold red wine, watered down by ice with chunks of fruit in it? No thanks. I mentioned this to the server and she was shocked that the sangria wasn’t sweet, however I noticed that she didn’t try it herself to confirm. Other customers kept ordering it, so either it’s just me, or those rubes just don’t know any better.* The small plates/tapas were delicious, as always, and they’re ½-price during Happy Hour** (5-7) so that was a bonus!
Since the office will be a ghost town today, I expect there will be little to aggravate my mood so I can head into the weekend sufficiently pleasant. I think once I leave here today, I might start it off with a nap.
* It should be obvious which answer my money’s on.
** I know, I know, I missed out on another local blogger happy hour. Trust me, the mood I’ve been in, my presence wouldn’t have been much fun.
