On this gorgeous Friday afternoon my girlfriends from college made their way into the city. The warm temperature and clear blue sunny skies called for drinks on the waterfront. We strolled over to The Landing at Long Wharf. Though I only spent a minimal amount of time here three years ago on a work outing, I thought it would be a great spot to relax and unwind after a hectic work week. It was, but not without one major fault....
...the margaritas. The Cadillac Margarita had a pre-made mix had me wincing with every sip. It was like drinking a Sweet Tart candy as my friend Laura pointed out. I felt disappointed in The Landing for botching one of my favorite summer cocktails and myself for making the mistake of ordering a margarita described on the menu with "sour mix." I guess I had faith that they would at least provide a decent mix?!
For the next round, ice cold Corona with lime.
Our waitress, who was prompt and friendly all afternoon, suggested a bucket of beer. You get six for the price of five. Not the deal of the century, but a deal none-the-less. Coronas never looked so pretty and never tasted so good.
It was great to spend time with the girls. I hadn't seen Laura since we visited her in Boulder, Colorado this past April!
Codzilla entrance in the background is pretty hilarious, no?!
Waterfront relaxation at its best if you ask me. Liquid lunch was the perfect way to kick off a holiday weekend.
