Did you guys know that tomorrow is National Rosé Day?? We’re awfully excited, because nothing says “I’m a fancy person enjoying this delightful weather” quite the way a nice cold crisp glass of rosé does. Enjoy, and have a great weekend, everyone!

cct // So apparently the Hipster phase is dead, and the next despised group of people sounds a little too familiar…it’s the “I want to be creative and fulfilled in my job, even if it means taking a pay cut” person. You fall into this category if you: really want to go to Austin soon because you heard it’s incredible, love Seinfeld even though it went off the air when you were 16, and you have thousands of Instagram followers, but almost no Twitter followers. YUP sounds about right…

Boston Weekend Hang

RegBdayWeekend

As we mentioned before, it was Reg’s birthday on Friday, and I went to visit her in Boston on Saturday! It was a shorter trip than usual, but it was fantastic – we laid out by the Charles River and explored new (to me) places to eat and drink.

Saturday // Lunch // Flour
This fast paced bakery/sandwich shop was perfect for a quick stop before we went to lay out by the Charles River for the afternoon. Joanne Chang opened up this place in 2000, and with several locations around Boston, it’s quickly become one of Reg’s favorite stops. Some of our favorites are the bacon arugula and tomato sandwich, the Greek chopped salad, and the chicken and jicama sandwich. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, we recommend the hazelnut-almond dacquoise, the sticky buns, and some cornmeal-lime cookies. 

Saturday // Dinner // Row 34

Oh goodness. This place nailed it. Lobster rolls, muscles, bluefish, burgers, onion rings, fries, and wine. Owned by the same company as Island Creek Oyster Bar which we’ve featured before, we basically left rolling out the front door (the extra side of fries and onion rings were pretty unnecessary), but we were very happy campers. I think we can all safely say we’d recommend all of the above items, but we also recommend making a reservation  as far in advance as you can – this place is new and popular.

Saturday // Drinks // Lucky’s

Since we had a late dinner Row 34, and it’s not in the easiest of locations to get to, Lucky’s was sort of picked out of convenience – but hit the spot! Quick line, no cover, cheap drinks, a descent crowd, and some excellent throwback songs. We met up with an old friend from our high school days and enjoyed a little 70s funk and 80s pop.

Sunday // Breakfast // Mei Mei

Since discovering this place only a month ago, Reg has gone back four times and introduced it to five new people – I think it’s safe to say she likes it there. The scallion pancake (or as we like to call ’em, scal-pals) sandwiches are a great alternative to your usual breakfast options. We HIGHLY recommend the Double Awesome – a poached egg with cheddar and fresh pesto, inside a folded scal-pal. Don’t forget to spread some of the soy aioli on it, and maybe (definitely) get it with bacon.

All in all we had a great time catching up with old and dear friends, while finding awesome new stops. If you’re in the Boston area, check ’em out!
