Friday Night at White Dog

Hello gentleviewers, first off I would like to welcome you all. I've noticed that my number of page views has really increased lately, which warms my heart. Keep the subscriptions and comments coming guys. I love to hear from you, and I usually comment back. 

You know how I joked about going to bars in a sweater in my last post? Well, that's exactly what I did last night. I was in total hibernation mode: PJ pants, Penn hoodie, no bra, What Not to Wear illuminating my TV. I was fully reclined, ready for a night of relaxation when I got a text summoning me to White Dog for drinks. In almost all cases, I would have ignored this siren call, but it was a friend I haven't seen since winter break. We've had so many missed connections this month that I was afraid that pretty soon I would be off the invite list all together. So I sucked it up, put on my sweater and khakis, and walked the 8 or so blocks to White Dog. 

Something great about that place is that it feels so homey. I could imagining this bar being in some weird kind of alcoholic grandma's living room if such a thing existed. Moreover, they had a whole collection of hot apple cider drinks served in a fancy glass with a cinnamon rim. It was a very soothing drink compared to the night before. It was also the type of place you could actually have a conversation at. Unfortunately, I was too tired to actively participate in said conversation but I appreciated the opportunity. The bar tenders were older men, which I actually liked. I felt like they really took care of me. 

As for my personal challenge, I'm doing ok, but really starting to crave fast food. I feel like everything I've made myself tastes so bland. Either home made food is always bland or I suck at cooking. I'm pretty sure it's the latter. I need to get some better stuff. I had pasta last night which was satisfying, by my chicken today was blah. Help?!

  1. Haha, I’ve never been to that bar but it sounds fun.
    I know what you mean about feeling like the invites might stop coming if you don’t go out once in awhile with that person. I’ve been such a homebody lately, and not really cared about it, but I’m scared that the invites will stop coming soon 😦
