First stop, miniluxe for a manicure. It was W’s idea…I was feeling bold and choose bright red. We then headed over to Cafeteria on Newbury street for a fun cocktail. Mine had sugar cane rum, strawberry purree, lime, and ginger beer. Perfect. It was about 4:30 when we finished our drinks. The rain was constant, so we tucked into Piattini, our favorite and the best Italian cafe on Newbury. We slowly shared a bottle of Malbec, a cheese & olive plate, and great conversation. Travel, medical school, childhood dreams. The waiter was nice enough to let us try both the portobello and lobster raviolis. yummmmmy. Of course we had to stop at JP licks for oreo/peanut butter soft serve on the way home.
It was about 7 when we got back, and the wine had made me lazy. I had to work the next morning so we called it a super early night. W read Cat’s Cradle to me before bed.
Best rainy day EVER.
