Tapas, Wine, and Connect Four
In reminiscence of our trip to Spain in 2006, my husband and I decided to have a tapas date last night. We walked around our neighborhood in Santa Monica and had a few tapas and a glass of wine at different restaurants. Our first stop was Border Grill for happy hour (the lamb tacos were delicious). Next on the list was Bar Pintxo (an actual Spanish Tapas restaurant) for more wine, flat bread pizza, more lamb, and bacon wrapped dates. For the first time in my life, I understood what my mom means when she says, "That's SO rich, I cannot take another bite". I never thought it would happen to me, it must be a sign of my age. Then we were off to West 4th/Jane for our last glass of wine and connect four! I absolutely love games, so I was thrilled to see the bar tables covered in plastic game pieces and connect four boards. A bar that comes with board games? Thank you, God! Unfortunately for me, Gabe was more skilled in his connect four and he beat me almost every time.
