summer is on the way, i have a new job, a dance studio opened up in southie. life is good. during a fairly long run of stress and exhaustion, i was focusing on all of the crap that was going on around me. sure, there was the list to keep me occupied (and you’ll likely hear more about that on here), but the negativity level was a tad too high. now, i have the time and am finding tons of really fun new things to do, see and experience. and then it hit me – why not share the wealth when i find those things that make my day better?
soooooo, i’ll start with how my day got better last night. our partner from the langham hotel invited me over for a site visit and drinks at bond. we had a great server (nancy – she’s been there forever and is very friendly, ask for her if she’s working) and the atmosphere was great. bond is in the space where the lobby of the federal reserve bank used to be and is bank themed, but in a contemporary, chic sort of way. they had just rolled out a new drink menu for the summer, so it was difficult to choose, but i went with the #54 (a lot of the drinks are named by number, like safety deposit boxes… clever). vodka, watermelon, lemon. not too sweet. SO good. go. plus they have jazz wednesdays, a killer brunch and chocolate bar in cafe fleuri (next room over) and some good-looking bartenders.
