Not only did I get to spend of time with my sis, I got to lounge out in my most favorite place in CT-Bin 228. I found the place a few years ago when I was looking for a place to go on a blind date with a cute boy. After finding out that he didn't like wine, I opted for another location, but vowed to visit this place on my own.
And I fell in love. With it's cozy atmosphere (meaning, it's small) on a side street in the city, it already screams "Maggie, Love Me!" But upon entering, it's warm, soft lighting paired with brick walls and luxurious draperies makes it just a fantastic find.
And, it's a wine bar. Could this place be any more perfect for me?
If you click on the link above, you'll see that their menu is small, but action packed. Smaller portions allow you and your friends to order lots of different things, guaranteeing that you will always walk away full. And happy. Their food rocks.
Because I'm the one who lives close to this restaurant, I know that my chances of dining here again are limited. Granted, everyone I've taken there loves it, and I'm sure I could convince them to go again-they all live far away from it. So, I planned a night out to say goodbye. Initially there were to be 4 of us, but 2 was just fine.
Afterwards, we took a walk up the street for dessert and after dinner drinks. I've been slowly trying to get into martini's (LOVE apple and watermelon) and so I tried the chocolate martini. I didn't love it. In fact, I only took a few sips. I didn't send it back though, because my sister's creme brulee sucked, and we sent that back....but, immediately upon taking my first sip, I thought about this guy. And his famous pose, which looks a little like this:
If only I were wearing my glasses...
Day one of heavy moving tomorrow folks...pray for me-my mother will be helping!!!
