Apparently Jodi has become quite the fitness guru. Off to the condo community's gym we went! We all did 30 minutes cardio, some core, and weight training. I can’t believe we started our day with going to the gym!
Carolyn made an amazing breakfast. Yum. An omelet with tomato, and feta cheese. I would never have made it like that, but it was awesome. Accompanied by a fruit salad, and an english muffin, it was pretty good.
Jodi’s primary residence is in NY. This condo is a vacation home for her and her father. It’s a recent purchase so there’s not much furniture yet other than a dining set and TV the previous owner left behind. I brought sheets, a pillow and a blanket but she had the air mattresses. No couch yet so we did a little furniture shopping yesterday. We weren’t very successful, but hey SOME of us are on vacation.
For lunch, it was agreed that a water front restaurant would be a great spot to dine. Off to Shooters we went. I ate hot wings. I love hot wings.
Next destination. Alcoholic beverages down at the beach! Let’s go! The first stop was the Pirate Republic (Pirate Bar). The girls like going here when they’re in town. I think the place is a dive but apparently the cheap beer and Bimini ring tossing game is a great attraction to them. Argh matey.
Let me tell you about beer. I don’t like beer. I’ve had sips here and there. 39 years later, I grabbed a Bud Light and drank it all. Wasn’t too bad. I felt so macho. What do you think?
Oh the extra fingers up in the air thing. Yeah, I’m still working on that.
Wild, aren’t we?
Above: Some guy walks into the bar – sounds like a joke. OK, a guy walked up to us and said he’d sketch us for a dollar a person. He was kinda like a bum I think. Anyways, there’s the finished product.
Enough of the pirate bar. Let’s have one drink at the Elbo Room and then go home, and get ready for dinner!
Before dinner, it was necessary to have a photo shoot.
I’m sorry, I had to post all those photos. I loved them all.
Dinner. With my recommendation based on a past visit, we went to Bizaare Ave Cafe. The service was weak. The food was delicious. Let me tell you what we ordered for appetizers (my blogger friend Chef Green will appreciate this):
Fried Pumpkin Ravioli: Pumpkin stuffed ravioli with sweet pecan and cinnamon butter.
Toasted Bruschetta: French baguette rubbed with garlic oil, smothered with a Balsamic tomato salsa.
Spanakopitas: Spinach and cheese wrapped in Phyllo dough, baked and served with a Tatziki sauce and dolmas.
Carmelized Onion and Bleu Cheese Fun-Do: A rich marriage of Havarti, Gouda and caramelized onions baked off with a Bleu cheese crust. For dipping : apples, pears, grapes and flat bread will be served.
3 out of 4 of us order entree’s. We were stuffed. We couldn’t eat the entree’s so we took what we could home.
What is it with leaving a restaurant and having to pee?
We went home, dressed in our jammies (sort of), drank wine, cocktails, ate chocolate and fruit and lounged on Jodi’s
Sleepy. Very sleepy…
