Cupcakes... Even Better With Wine
And truth be told: I like dates.
Who knew!? This Goodie Two-Shoes is a date liker. I always thought I was more of a 'Hey, let's get a quick drink' or 'How about brunch?' or even 'Early movie?'. All in order to avoid the obvious dating scene that happens to be my life. Here is the reason: if we're not on a date, then we're not dating, which means that I'm a perfectly happy, perpetually single Middle Sister. So far, it has been a fool proof system and I have done very well for myself in this non-dating realm.
But Cupcake Kid... I am feeling Cupcake Kid. So, I say again... who knew!? Shall we cruise through the evening? Grab a drink Middle Sisters, lets cozy up and chat.
Dinner: we go to Counter (a hip East Village restaurant with a casual/chic vibe, perfect!) and just my luck, it is a BYOB. Yep, that's right. I love BYOB restaurants. So obviously I uncork a bottle of my Cabernet Sauvignon and he loves it. And right then... I knew it was going to be a good night.
Drinks: we follow up dinner with another bottle of Cab on my rooftop. It might not immediately sound romantic, but picture us alone on one of those perfect nights (a little warm with a whisp of cool wind) with the entire Manhattan skyline in front of us. I'm talking the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Woolworths Building. Everything! It is gorgeous.
Jazz at Blue Note: What is sexier than a jazz show at Blue Note? Now, I'm more of an indie/hip hop/classic rocker girl myself, but a little jazz never hurt anybody right? Eek! It was a perfect date. I gave Cupcake Kid a chance and look at me... I. Am. Dating... for now :-)
