daisies and fizz...

today i am grateful for...

sidecar

1. sidecar. my new favorite south slope spot. cozy, dark wooded interior, bespoke cocktails, and fancy twists on classic american bar fare.

2 .and for my favorite, peter hale cooney III, my date for the evening. i miss living with my sweet pete and it was 'specially nice to catch up over gin daisies and ramos fizz's (one of the most delicious, decadent drinks invented). he makes me laugh 'til my sides hurt and he can out-accessorize me any day. lately, i've been seriously slack on my pieces of flair. too hot to wear any extra of anything... now i want to stock up on orange blossom water; layer on some costume jewelry; slip into my ridiculous shoes, and break out my sequins. i am so ready for fall.

thank you petey pie for schlepping all the way to this part of brooklyn. and for being you. i love you to pieces.

We are so on! I bet we're going to work up a real appetite with that movie too... Should we meet outside the theater around 1:45?

oooh I am totally obsessed with orange blossom water! and your new banner is gorgeous (even thought I loved your silhouette!) I have a recipe for orange blossom cookies that I have been dying to try, but haven't been able to find orange blossom water in dc yet, thanks for the reminder to keep looking!
