The Adventure Begins Now

Hello blog world, I've missed you.

I haven't kept up a blog in a good amount of years. I'm a little bit worried that after 100 days I'm going to forget about you and leave you hanging. I will try my best though. My goal is to stick with this for one year. And during that year I will be reporting my opinions on the 45 martini's offered at 84 East, my favorite weekend hangout :) I'll also be sharing my thoughts on the conversations of the evening and life in general. One flavor per weekend minimum with a few extra weeks in case of holidays or other unforseen events should take me to next August 14th.
This whole idea came from the movie Julie & Julia. And of course my rating system stored in my phone of previous martini nights.

I started last night with the Coconut Raspberry. I LOVE coconut so I don't think it could have been bad. I gave it an 8 on a scale of 1-10 only because it tastes slightly creamy without actually being creamy at all. I was able to share the evening with Esther and Oven and it wasn't long after talking about the "dance floor" we began our topic of the evening: The Slow Dance. I began to explain my policy; I do not slow dance. I just don't do it. Of course I'm referring to wedding scenarios because I can't think of a situation where I would ever need to slow dance elsewhere. I think slow dancing is:
1) too personal
2) too boring
3) precious time to cool off and recuperate for the next batch of fast songs
4) something I'll do when I'm married
Needless to say, we had different opinions. I figured if I keep the policy and don't break the rules (which I did in the past and then the turnout made me feel worse, I should have said no!) then I don't have to worry about it. But what if you take a date they ask? Well, the date will already know the policy. This doesn't have to be difficult, I think it makes perfect sense. Does anyone else have this policy? Or a policy in general? I can't be the only one. I just can't be.
So this was day one. Or I guess night one. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the topics or ideas of topics for next time. Most of all I'd like you to join me.
until next time,


  1. Night one sounds like a huge success. First off you started with an 8, I mean that's pretty hard to beat. But I believe the Float Me Home you may be having tomorrow night could prove to be some good competition.
    Regarding the slow dancing, I may have to agree. However I've never myself made a policy. Possibly still making you the only one. I usually just go with #3 or join the bride/single lady circle in which we all hold hands and sway back and forth (probably the reason why most of us stay single).
    I'm curious about this turnout you had after breaking your policy though.

  2. haha. that's the reason we're still single!
    and i can give a recap of the outcome at the next martini night...which is tonight.
