After stuffing the fullest, most awesome swag bags I have seen to date, we spruced ourselves up and headed to Alma de Cuba for dinner. We walked there. It was perfect. I’m falling fast in love with Phili and I’m OK with that.
The group headed upstairs to our table, but I couldn’t help but bask in the hipness of the first floor. It’s true, I’m a sucker for swanky of all sorts, both over the top and undercover. Alma de Cuba was somewhere in the middle.
I started with a gin, St. Germain, and muddled strawberry cocktail. It was stiff and refreshing (i.e. perfect). Following the cocktailness, Smoked Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho and Rainbow (tuna, salmon, black bass) Ceviche arrived. The gazpacho was to die for, even though my first bite induced a feeling of guilt as the smoked flavor told my brain I was eating bacon. I got over that feeling quickly and slurped up the entire thing! The ceviche was tasty as well. I was really impressed with the entire experience. I’m super thankful that Meghann included me in this adventure!!!
After dinner, we headed to Sabrina’s house for tea and dessert – she is thirty five weeks of preggo cuteness and an amazing hostess to boot! I’m having such a wonderful time here with my used to be virtual, now real life, friends!
More soon, I promise!!
