I worked yesterday and managed to depart much earlier than anticipated. I was a little undecided about how I should spend the evening. I could pick up some bubbly and take out. There is a spot that has a delicious Caesar salad and a side of meatballs that I have been enjoying the last few months. Or, I could make dinner in my house. I would need to pick up some greens and other vegetables but it was manageable.
I continued to contemplate and then texted a chef friend of mine to see if he was working. I love his spot and it has always been a safe haven. He responded that he was not there but that I could stop by and meet him for wine. That could be fun and I could bring him bubbly and celebrate my day with him. Brian and I had our first date on August 28th. We went to a Rockies game and downtown. I celebrate my life with him. In the past I have traveled to honor him and find incredible food. Food was always an aspect of our relationship. It just seemed fitting that I would dine out last night.
Thankfully the bartender is an acquaintance of mine and there was ample seating. I walked in and chit chatted with the other customer until I chose mussels with chorizo and a Caesar salad. Perfection. Ideal way to spend the anniversary. It would have been fourteen years.
Tonight I am meeting another friend for Vietnamese food. Upscale. I have a love for Pho, banh mi and a whole slew of food from that region of the world. Cannot wait to enjoy some dumplings. First, though, I will attend Barre, see my chiro, receive a massage and thoroughly enjoy my day.
Cheers to the week!
