Well last week I was at Tales of the Cocktail. And, well, what happens at TotC stays at the TotC. I worked pretty hard, met some cool people, sampled some cocktails, went to a couple parties... then came down sick with Tom's bug and had to cancel my shifts (and comp events) for Saturday and Sunday. Here's a picture from the Beefeater-sponsored Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening.
There was a crazy Alice in Wonderland-British acid trip theme going on. Tasty beverages though.
Anyway. this morning after dropping Tom off at the office, I went to the post office and the bank, and in between I stopped at Surrey's Cafe on Magazine for some breakfast. It was nice- I ordered the Boudin Breakfast Biscuit with grits and over easy eggs and watermelon lemonade. I also decided to splurge on some fresh squeezed grapefruit with a shot of ginger juice to help boost the ole fading immune system. All excellent- the Supremes were playing overhead, the service was friendly, the boudin was panfried up nice, and the biscuits were freshly made. The only downside is that I sat at the table that gets the A/C condensation drip. I won't sit there again.
Hopefully this mix of productivity and deliciousness will kick off the week in a healthy fashion!
