monday night favorites

Yesterday was a great full day back in the city. I worked from 9 to 5, but indulged myself for the rest of day, starting with lunch with friends at Cafetasia, a great Thai places near campus. After work, I revisited my favorite bar/restaurant Maracas for some frozen margaritas and yummy Mexican food. The place is always so fun and twinkling with year-round Christmas lights, and the drinks are festive too!

Later, with Emily, Mark, and other friends, I visited the Belgian beer bar (also known as Vol de Nuit) on West 4th, a place that is always cozily lit with dark red lights - but not in a tacky brothel manner, I swear. We had some framboise, or raspberry beer (which was delicious!) and after a nice walk back to my apartment, I felt absolutely euphoric. Mix yummy drinks, fresh air, and good friends together, and I'm pretty sure you'll find the utmost happiness. Ah, it's good to be back!

There's a zoo in my drink!

Enjoying some framboise with friends.
