Cookie Doughboys

blogger meetup - dessert - restaurant - soup/stew

The sun finally came out again on Saturday, but I was still feeling under the weather.

Took Julius for a walk and ate the other half of my Grape Nuts concoction, cold…

…then rested myself until a 3pm Blogger/Reader meetup at Kitchen 24.

I chose this place because they have a long-ass Happy Hour…

…but I actually wouldn’t recommend coming with a group, as the bar gets pretty crowded, the waiter service is messy, and the parking situation is annoying. (There is validation, but only for an hour.)

Also, there’s a weird food situation where you can’t get the $5 appetizer deals if you’re sitting in a booth, which we ended up doing.

Still, it was fun – everyone from bloggers to readers to fashion designers! Leslie, Emily, Shelley, Amy, Tim, Megan, and Samantha.

And look – the decor matched my jewelry!

I wound up ordering the cupcake of the day – Cookie Dough…

…it’s VERY HEAVY on the frosting – I’ve never experienced an icing-to-cake ratio like that before!

Back home I dug into a care package delivery, very thoughtfully left on my porch from Christy

…left the bread aside but polished off this entire pint from Doughboys.

FYI – they make a really good Chicken Noodle Soup.

Totally wiped from that little outing! Skipped a Girls Night Dinner and spent the rest of the night recovering in my sick bed.

    Aw, wish I hadn’t missed the gathering! I ended up with not one but two rehearsals…perhaps happy hour at the Well next time? If we did an evening event they have happy hour til nine!

    Oh my gosh; that cupcake. My stomach literally just growled at 9:41 a.m.!

    I was so looking forward to going, and I just plain ol’ forgot. I blame my headache in part, but really it’s just my addled brain. I’m glad it was fun!
