But, I”m back. And to recover from a long week of work, E and I are headed out for dinner.
At the end of every Fashion Week, E and I have a tradition of heading to Blue Ribbon Brasserie in Soho for a leisurely Friday night dinner. Blue Ribbon has everything you could want from a neighborhood joint–quality cocktails and a solid wine list, well-stocked raw bar, and staples from fried chicken, lobster, pasta and paella on the menu. Blue Ribbon dinner is our treat to ourselves whenever we finish a large project —like covering Fashion Week, or my book (which I’m editing now!) or an iPhone app or consulting project.
I usually start the night with a martini, and sip it while slurping down oysters. Then I get their roasted chicken with sweet potatoes and greens and E orders the duck or the duck club. It’s a meal that tastes like Thanksgiving—so hearty, we need a nap afterwards.
It’s nice to have a tradition with your significant other. It’s an excuse for a date night, it’s a time to celebrate each other’s hard work, and thank the other person for their patience during one another’s “dark period.”
Once I get a good meal in my belly, then I can recharge for next week.
Happy Friday y’all!
