What a Wonderful and Evenful Weekend!

I had so much fun this past weekend!!!  My fun actually started on Thursday when I met up with my friend D, who was in town for the SWE conference.  We met up at Benjy's in the Rice Village area for dinner.  I think we only stopped talking long enough to chew, which we did with gusto as the food was delicious (and I'll definitely be back for more)!  While I was waiting for D, I made friends with the bartender, A, and so I went back to chat with her after D had to head back to her hotel.  So great to see old friends and make new ones!

Friday I met up with a cute boy and went out for tapas and dancing with some of his friends.  Drinks and dinner took place at Majorca Bistro where the highlight dish of the evening was the oxtail empanadas.  SO good!  After dinner we made our way to Numbers Night Club for 80's dance music and some extremely entertaining people watching.  And to close out the night after the bar closed we partook in some late night snacking at Taqueria Arandas!

Since I didn't get to bed until around 5 am on Friday, Saturday was primarily a recovery day.  Though I did make trips to go visit L and her adorably new puppy as well as H and her adorable little boy.  L and I stopped by the grocery store on our way to H's place and picked up some quick dinner ingredients and then proceeded to fill the next few hours with a backlog of girl talk and rotisserie chicken snacking.  It was a good time, but I was exhausted and passed out in bed by 10:30...
Sunday was another fun day - I met up with my new friend A and a bunch of her girlfriends for brunch at Cyclone Anaya's.  Our group then relocated over to Celtic Gardens for yet more mimosas.  They're a fantastically fun group to hang out with and I hope we'll get to go out more, especially once I move into the city!  Though I admit I do worry a little that my alcohol tolerance may not be up to snuff...

And finally I went to go see Skyfall with some friends.  I love me some James Bond, and this movie didn't disappoint.  I love how the plot wrapped up at the end, though I admit it wasn't as much of a spy espionage type thriller as I typically expect from a Bond movie.  There was one point I was drawing some Home Alone references as well, which was odd.  Watch it and let me know what you think!
