Lets Get Right to it

Hi Guys!

I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend! I don’t even want to discuss the superbowl considering the Patriots lost, so instead we’ll just get right to it!

********

I had a fabulous weekend that involved lots of family, friends and of course food (probably a little too much food, considering the fact that I’ve had a sour stomach all day, boo!) On Saturday night, I went out to dinner with my family for my grandfathers 70th birthday. We went to one of our favorite restaurants called Pasta Beach (lame name, great place).

For my meal I decided to have the salmon special. It was served in a white wine sauce with a side of arugula salad, along with a glass of presecoo. Both of which I did not photograph, (bad blogger) but I can assure you that the food and drink were splendid as always . Although I forgot to photograph my meal, I think I recuperated by not forgetting to photograph probably the most important moment of the evening!

My grandfather blowing out the candle on his tiramisu! Isn’t he just so precious?

I also shared a mini tiramisu with Matteo which was terrific. The flavors were not overpowering, and it was the perfect amount.

******

We left the restaurant around 8:30 p.m, said our goodbyes to my family, and decided to continue our evening by grabbing a drink at Trade, a new restaurant located in Boston’s Financial District. I didn’t know what to expect since I had never been there, but let me just say that I will definitely be returning! I would without a doubt say that this is one of the trendiest places in Boston. We had to wait 30 minutes just to get a drink at the bar!

I hate feeling enclosed and claustrophobic, so I loved that Trade had floor to ceiling windows surrounding the exposed brick, along the perimeter of the whole restaurant.

The vaulted ceilings are lined with rows of hanging light bulbs, that gave off enough enough light to read the menus, but were still dim enough so the romantic ambiance was not lost.  The openness along with the modern yet industrial decor, gave this place an extra flare that I really liked!

Once we sat down, I ordered an expresso martini to finish off the night. Expresso martini’s (or any coffee flavored drink) are my favorite after dinner drink. The fresh coffee flavor along with the creaminess of the kaluha liquor, came through nicely without being too strong or bitter. Luckily the alcohol content seems to overrule the caffeine content, because otherwise I would never be able to fall asleep! I am a total decaf coffee drinker all the way!

I definitely want to back to Trade soon. Next time I’ll make sure to try the food, as well as make a reservation ahead of time!

What did you do this weekend?

  5. Since it was stated earlier, the beauty connsultants usually suggested consumers on how to dress, wear makeup, or to
    use over a hair, often peculiar. Although it smells lovely, tthe scent doesn’t mixx well with my perfume so I
    have to make sure not to use the two at the same time.

  8. There are many different heating solutions available to us.
    If you can’t locate the bleed key you should be able to buy a replacement
    at your local DIY store. It isn’t crimp resistant, doesn’t affect temperature, and frankly not enough is included in the
    kit to account for measuring errors, so beware.

    professional if metal banquet chairs are used, even if they are quite

    need some coffee to raise my power.
