Working Out and Going Out = I wish I was 10 Years Younger

As I sat across the breakfast table at the café this morning looking at my two friends, Laurie and Kathleen, I realized 40-something life can sometimes be like agonizing pain.  While they looked quite refreshed and like they had slept for 10 hours straight and hadn’t had a drink for more than a week – which by the way is the complete opposite of what they did do; I was dying with lack of sleep, a pillow scar across my face and feeling like my body had been hit by a car!!!!   I remember the days when I could survive on...

Is there a 12 Step Program for People Who Buy Shoes?

On Sunday, I had the best day, a truly fun day.  One of those days where you start out with something simple like brunch and it ends up something like… well, let me share in words and pictures if I may… I met Rob and Sergio, my wonderful good friends for brunch at Union Bar & Grill (now closed) on Washington.  Nothing too outrageous, except a perhaps outrageously good brunch of eggs bennie, side of fruit and excellent coffee and a good look at People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive edition – fantastic brunch conversation. After brunch Rob and I decided we were...

If You Are Not Looking For Love Online, Where Can You Look?

74 percent of singles look for love online.  Isn’t that a staggering number????  Is it because people can’t communicate anymore in person?  Are our friend’s rubbish and don’t introduce us enough to their eligible single friends?  Do people not meet at work, at bars, while doing charity or just out and about anymore?  The fact that 74% of people look for love online is crazy to me.  I have been doing the online thing for years and have in fact been to quite a number of weddings of friends who met online –  obviously not my own!   It is really just not the way I want to meet...

Teatro, Tremont Street, Boston

  “Jamie Mammano’s Theater District stop draws a young, hip crowd with its big portions of rustic Italian fare…”   “What started out as buzz about Mistral chef Jamie Mammano’s perfect little Italian restaurant has risen to a dull roar. Be prepared to fight throngs of hipsters for a table. They’re here for the fantastic food—a to-die-for antipasto, the thinnest pizza this side of a cracker, and entrées including veal scaloppine and spaghetti carbonara—along with beautiful people, reasonable prices, and a trendy location in a converted synagogue…” I was chatting to Rob about where I could go with my friend and work colleague, I try to think of fabulous, fun places we can go to.  Rob and I went down a whole list of restaurants and basically what my mood was.  We talked about so many places but when he said Teatro, my thoughts went to… hmm, yes, Teatro – why not. Upon arrival the place was packed out.  I didn’t make a reservation.  Nevertheless, the hostess was lovely and said we could be seated within 10-15 minutes, or sooner and did we want a drink at the bar.  We did end up sitting at the tiny, at the most 10 seat bar for dinner. Teatro is a former bank – I think.  High ceilings and a cavernous, loud atmosphere. This is another one of those places where if you want a quiet dinner, this is...

The Social Girl on Weightwatchers Dilemma

I knew it going in… I had a long talk with myself about how difficult it was going to be, given my lifestyle and doing Weightwatchers – or any sort of diet for that matter.  What can you do with 18 points a day – not a lot, that’s what! As an example, I had dinner with my friend Erin last night at Gaslight.  I only had 7 points left of my 18 point daily allowance.  I was determined to have one 2 point glass of wine and then a 5 point dinner – hahahaha… wait, I give me a minute to stop laughing before I continue. Firstly, Erin thought I was bonkers going on Weightwatchers during the holiday season – she has a fair point.  Secondly, the second I looked at the menu I was done for.  I decided to go with the Moules frites and I was going to ignore the frites part – right, because that is incredibly easy to do with their yummy, skinny, salted just right fries. I should have told them to hold the fries! But then, Erin ordered fried artichokes, so I tried one and then another and then perhaps a third – I stopped counting.  They were only small but very deeply fried.  Then they brought over their signature warm, crusty French bread and butter, and then of course my Moules Frites, and yes I did eat the frites.  Oh, and...
