Barcelona Day One – A €3 Bottle of Cava For Your Thoughts?

Another city, another terrace to sit upon and drink our morning coffee.

Barcelona is gorgeous. Buildings dripping in balconies and tinted in warm taupe and rich terracotta hues. Although the days here were hot during our stay, the nights were mild, allowing us to open our balcony door and let the breeze blow in. I regret not taking photos of the flat we stayed in.

BRUNCH TIME. Barcelona is a brunching city, and while it wasn’t a weekend, we were determined to find some eggs and mimosas to get the day started off right. So, we headed down to Federal Café right in the heart of Sant Antoni, the city’s brunch capital.

That Happened: Drink Philly Boat Party 2014

Photo Jul 30, 7 21 34 PM

Last Wednesday was the first Drink Philly Boat Party and it was pretty much everything I dreamed it would be. Beautiful weather, wonderful people, and unlimited food and drink as we sailed between bridges on the Delaware River. It also gave me a chance to rock my giant lobster bling cuff. Always a good thing.

Upon arriving myself and my lovely friends Amanda, Dylan, and Mike, began to climb the levels seeking a table. Luckily we didn’t mange to find one until we reached the very top deck. Our seats put us in the prime spot to be serenaded by live jazz all night while we admired the Philadelphia skyline and double fisted beer. It was really the perfect night. Below us people danced and did shots and watched Sharknado, while the highest tier took a lower key approach to the evening. They somehow managed to create an event that accommodated everyone’s preference in atmosphere.

Yet another hit event from the fabulous folks at Drink Philly. Keep on killing it, guys. <3

Limoncello Round One

One brutally hot summer in Central Pennsylvania, my best friend AJ and I went to a barbecue at his manager’s house not far from Three Mile Island. Her home was set way back in the woods and required a little bit of off-roading to access, and consisted of acres of untouched land attached to a staggering country-style home overflowing with balconies. We sat on the deck just as the sun dipped behind the trees enough to start to give us relief, and Ruth greeted us with glasses of homemade limoncello. It tasted like sunshine kicking you in the face, and we raved about it. I promised myself that I’d make my own limoncello some day and share it with my friends on my own deck.
