For one reason or another, I hadn’t seen Skylar since my birthday. There’s no excuse, but I’d like to blame it on her being a teacher and me being ridiculously jealous of her summer schedule. But now that her vacation is almost over, I figured it was time to get a date on the books. I sent her a calendar invite and we stuck to it.
We started out at Cru for half priced bottles of prosecco and cheaper than cheap apps. And although I wouldn’t order food there again, half priced bubbly could be worth a second trip. On our way to Peche, we noticed a lone musical soldier playing in the Cedar Street Courtyard. I couldn’t help but get Miike Snow’s “Song For No One” stuck in my head…
Peche was on point as usual. I couldn’t bring myself to order absinthe on a Thursday, so the bartender jazzed up a traditional cucumber gimlet with some bitters. I haven’t had a flawless off-menu cocktail since my regular Tampa hangout. It was nice.
As Skylar and I parted ways in 100 degree Texas heat, we assured each other that we wouldn’t let time fly quite as easily again. We made plans for a yoga brunchtastic Saturday, plans that I plan on sticking to!
