We infrequently exit on a Friday evening. Friday nights are very sacred for simply hanging out. We’ve simply moved to a brand new house on Beekman Place which we love. It’s a form of sq. or alcove which has echoes of Paris or London.

But when we do go and have dinner, will probably be someplace like Deux Amis across the nook. It’s an area, very charming restaurant. Now we have received fairly keen on it fairly rapidly.

Then we’ll come again for a form of gluttonous screening session of one thing we’ve wished to observe all week.

I additionally do power-walks with my girlfriends, as an alternative of the health club, by the East River. We simply stroll and yap and yap. We’re at all times opining about the entire week’s information. It’s a information junkies’ stroll.

I really feel so refreshed when I’ve a weekend like that. I by no means do fancy dinners or go to something that requires sporting greater than sneakers.
