Movies, movies, movies
At one point of our lives, we went as a family on the weekends to see movies. Saturday night was generally a movie and dinner. Somehow over the past year, our children have all gone their separate ways on the weekend and Fred and I are solo. The 3 day weekend, cold as it is, gave us some time to see a few flicks.
We saw Milk on Saturday night, which I really liked. Then we saw Defiance and Gran Torino. All winners. Already saw The Wrestler, Slumdog Millionaire and Waltzing with Bashir. Haven't done this in a long time. Also, there are a lot of good movies out there which hasn't happened in a long time.
We did a double header yesterday. Saturday night we went over to Terroir for a late evening nosh. The owners of Hearth opened Terroir a year or so and I have been interested in checking it out. A tiny wine bar with a bar and a communal table – high seats – that sit about 16 people. They play great music and the food comes out of a tiny open kitchen that isn't bigger than a small deli counter. I like the idea. Cheese, salamis, some fried dishes, paninis and bruschettas. We went with the chicken wings, the pork sausage and black cabbage bruschetta, a cheese and a cauliflower fritatta. An interesting menu but the wines is really the best thing. We tried a delicious Reisling but I liike that we could have tried 3 different wines. Cute place. Fred and I were definitely the youngest people in there.
A very lazy 3 day weekend in NYC.
