A windfall in the mail allowed me to change the "let's go our for coffee" to "let's get a cocktail!" And as it was late in the day, completely appropriate.
Alchemy Bistro and Wine Bar is a delightful bar that serves a mean tequila gimlet, so was the venue of choice. It has a very relaxed ambiance and excellent service. So both Susans chose gimlets and proceeded to enjoy the fruits of my windfall, with toasts to our benefactor who can ill afford to be so generous!
And today I woke to bright sun and frost... and no hangover at all!
And the sight of bright daffodils made my day.
