“I gave it to myself, it’s given to me by me.”

Last night, after a long week at the office and a Saturday at a work thing, Lindsay and I had a date night:

  • Lady Bird (imdb | rotten tomatoes) at the Varsity
  • Champagne and cocktails at Bar Reyna, my first time there since it used to be Caren’s
  • Dinner at Opus
    • Lindsay had the carrot bisque w/ lime Chantilly and coriander seedlings, and the aged prime striploin and roasted salsify w/ spinach and juniper
    • I had the Yellowfin tuna ceviche and albacore carpacio w/ pickled cucumber, dill yoghurt, watercress and pommes gaufrette, and the red deer venison loin w/ vegetable tartare and apple jus
    • We shared each had a glass from Bourgogne with our starters (red for her, white for me) and shared a bottle of 2000 Croix de Beaucaillou with the mains
    • We shared a salted caramel chocolate tart with sponge toffee, popping candy and grapefruit and glasses of 20 year old Tawny Port

This morning, before I headed back to the work event, we scarfed down a gigantor breakfast (and killer doughnuts) at White Lily Diner, which is quickly becoming our go-to brunch spot.
