Random weeknight get-togethers are the best. My friend Raija was in town yesterday for a work conference, and when I was able to get away to meet her for drinks, I was very excited. She doesn’t live far, but life gets busy, and we don’t see each other nearly as often as we would like.
We met under gorgeous blue skies outside South Station, and while talking about my ridiculous week last week, made our way past the Intercontinental Hotel, our destination. It took us a few blocks to realize that our chatter had distracted us, and we had to turn around to head back to the hotel.
We found seats in RumBa, as close to the windows as we could get, to enjoy the channel views. It definitely turned out to be a beautiful day in the city. I started with a Rum Swizzle, and after awhile we ordered a dozen East Coast oysters.
Oysters just seemed to spark our appetites, and soon after my husband arrived, we moved on across the corridor to Sushi Teq.
Sushi Teq is a trippy dining experience, with ever-changing lights surrounding diners. It’s a little too much, but the views, sushi, and cocktails help to make up for it.
I had a tart Hemingway Daiquiri that was absolutely delicious.
And we shared a bunch of rolls, here the Sushi Teq roll:
Spicy cooked salmon atop a sliced soy wrapped roll of
avocado, cucumber and scallions, embellished with crunchy
potato, chive oil and tosa soy
And a Philadelphia roll, spicy tuna roll, and spicy salmon roll. Everything was fresh and delicious, and they delivered on spicy!
Nights like last night remind me that I need to get out of my workspace more during the week. I instantly felt more energetic just being out and about. As much as working from home has its perks, it can also make you a little stir-crazy!
It was also SO great to spend time talking non-stop with a good friend. I can’t wait for more fun in our post-marathon celebrations.
What’s the most fun night/day out you’ve had recently?
