Even if they ARE pretty things!
On Tuesday and a whim, Dan and I hit up Audubon for Pretty Things Boot Night – order a Meadowlark IPA and keep the glass boot it came in! It wasn’t hard to convince Dan, as Meadowlark is a house favorite.
An extra added bonus was that the weather was so nice, we were able to drink and eat on the patio. Fall in Boston = taking advantage of every last opportunity to dine outside, as each could be your last!
We split a BLT spread on pita bread (yum). For dinner I ordered the grilled tuna salad that was so pretty I had to be That Girl and take a picture, flash and EVERYTHING.
I have been neglecting wine for beer a lot lately. I’m an unfit wino. However, last Saturday we stayed in and had a bottle of delicious Italian red wine that I forgot to take a picture of! It was medium bodied and flavorful without being overly tannic or sweet. It was very well balanced. I tried it with a taste of chocolate and found that I preferred sipping it on its own. This is rare. Wine + chocolate = my favorite. Hopefully I will find it again!
Last night I had two glasses of this Bordeaux, which had a wonderful earthy aroma:
Medoc is a northern, left-bank region of Bordeaux. Fun fact: if a wine is labelled with a region like “Medoc” as opposed to “Bordeaux” generally, it means all the grapes come from that region.
Finally, humblebrag alert – on Monday we met up with a group of college friends at Fugakyu to celebrate birthdays and homecomings. I ordered the white wine flight (Sancerre, Pinot Grigio, and Riesling) and was able to correctly identify each glass based on SMELL ALONE. Rock.
