Well this was the most lovely of weekends. |
Impromptu double date with my BFF and her husband. We started out at Morrissey's (the Irish bar down the block from where we live) where we learned that our favorite bartender has known my BFF (via her friend who he dated years ago) forever. Why is this important? Minneapolis is such a small town, y'all. So small.
Afterwards we went to the newest speakeasy blocks away. You have to go down an alley, around a parking lot and if the red light is on, you bang on the door and the bouncer lets you in. You walk underground to a hallway of non-description doors and when you open the right one, it's MAGICAL inside. Voila you are greated with a fancy speakeasy. Jennifer - it's very Marvel Bar, you would so enjoy it!! (And I would like to enjoy it with you...)
Stayed long enough to order almost every drink on the menu between the four of us and soaked in all the newness of such a great place. Other people there were much older and so we secretly hoped simultaneously that word would not get out and that we could completely control who showed up.
Left the speakeasy to go to the CC Club, a place that's actually a foundation for both or our relationships separately. They used to live blocks away and it was their Cheers and it was the place of our first kiss and so many memories last summer when we basically lived on the patio out back. Queued up a bunch of songs and talked about going on vacation together next year post-wedding and pre-babies. Would be a fantastic time for that.
They had to end the night early, so we took tj long way home and were in bed so early, which was so great.
Amazing weekend, to be continued...
Up next: Jennifer's amazing holiday party!
