Last month I had the fun opportunity to meet one of my dear blogging friends. In my experience, blogging friends always turn out to be great real-life friends. This meeting was no exception. Katherine and I had such a fun evening together. I’d dare say it was one of my most memorable NYC nights.
We met at Serendipity for dinner. Due to some very skilled sweet-talking on Kathy’s part, Danny, the very flamboyant manager whose birthday was that day, became our new best friend. He got us right in (we skipped an hour wait), sat us at the best table in the house (upstairs by the window), treated us to free salads and frozen hot chocolate, and kept coming by to check on us, sit down and chat. It was awesome. Especially the part where he told us about his favorite birthday gift: a mani/pedi spa package. He was amazing. We love Danny.
Kathy and I enjoyed great conversation for hours, wore out our welcome at Serendip, then hit Forty Carrots upstairs at Bloomingdale’s in search of a place to continue our conversation. We stayed till after hours and got locked inside Bloomies at 10:15 pm when we finally decided to leave. After we wandered a bit through the empty, darkened store, a nice janitor showed us the secret exit. Thanks Katherine for an entertaining and memorable evening! It was so much fun getting to know you – in real life. I have a feeling we’ll be friends for a long time.
Blog friends are the BEST!
