Sunday evening Paul and I met Csilla and Ian and Simone and Mark for a wonderful dinner at 121BC, a natural wine bar. I went in a few weeks ago to meet the Somm and have been looking for an excuse to go back ever since. It had great (although small) Italian bites and amazing wines.

Nerd alert. Where's Paul been all week? I don't know I haven't seen him...
And then I finally met Paul with Alison and we had some tasty, albeit small, cocktails at a new bar up the street, Lab Made. Inventive cocktails with local ingredients, but shitty booze. Bacardi is the best you can do guys??
Saturday! Paul went to school. I went for a long run. We're meeting at a market for lunch. And then no plans! Wooh.
