Girls' Night Out
Sometimes, the best nights out with the girls DON"T actually involve shooters, dancing on bars and losing you clothes at the beach!
Wait, actually NONE of my nights out have EVER involved ANY of those things (not that I can remember, anyway). But, even if they did, it would be nice to dial it down every once and again to spend a night out on the town with my very best girl, Birdie. And, that's just what we did last night. Rob and Connor spent the evening at Bad Boys, (which by the way, was packed to the gills last night) Cole was off at a sleepover, so Birdie and I were left to fend for ourselves. After stopping in briefly to say "hello" to Captain Dave and Kim and J.J., we hit the town, just us girls. My first thought was to check out Fusion for a nice dinner on the beach and some music, but Birdie had other ideas. She wanted to dine "in town", and so we headed up to La Quinta to see what we could find.
After a nice stroll up 5th, we wandered into El Jardin de Mariela, a cozy enclave of art galleries, boutiques and small restaurants.
The popular Casa Mediterranea is right next door, but Birdie and I settled in at the other little Italian place, the name of which I have never known.
We toasted our fun evening, Fanta for Birdie, a cold Chilean sauvignon blanc for me.
Birdie eyes her large serving of spaghetti pommodoro.
The spaghetti vongole was delicious!
After dinner, we shopped for handmade jewelry.
We appreciated art.
And, we headed out for some good helado Michaocan at a new locale on Calle 6.
We pondered the variety of fresh, handmade fruit pops.
The smooth and rich ice cream that the region of Michoacan is famous for.
One Oreo Cookie cone for Birdie and a cup of Caramel ice cream for me. Diet be damned!
Doesn't that face just say it all?
It's still up for debate whether she will make it to school this morning, but I guess an occassional absense is a small price to pay for good girl time together.
