The Downtown Scene

Okay..we've decided we're going to do this every other Tuesday but the very minimum; once a month.

Me, Kelly, Michelle and Janet met at Mix. It's a GORGEOUS rooftop bar...swanky, candle-lighty AND sky-lighty with the most tasty delactable food i've had in a while...minus Debby's house. We started with an ahi tuna with Taro chips...amazing. moved on to a vegetable paninish type app that was topped with grilled zucchini, mushrooms, red peppers & onions and goat cheese with a balsamic reduction sauce...oh god. to DIE for.

Janet and i, of course, mosied on out for our smokes with cocktails to a lovely deck with more candles and practically back yard seating. Once we got back in the bar we had 2 more cocktails and it was time to do something different. Michelle walked home. A mere 20 blocks.

Janet, Kelly and I headed to Spataro's and had one more drink and another amzing app of bruschetta. But not your usual brushcetta. one of this recipe (for Kelly)

baked garlic smooshed in fresh lemon juice spread on bruschetta
baked until crisped, pulled out of the oven, spread with goat cheese, topped with chopped artichoke hearts (NOT marinated) and toasted pine nuts. back under a broiler for 5 minutes.

YUM!

it was a fun night. kinda sex and the cityish, with friends included but minus the shoes and hot men. still; good, no less...
