Jon, obviously in a carbohydrate induced moment of insanity, decided to *skip* Hollywood Studios and go to a Met's game instead (his favorite baseball team). They were playing a game some place nearby, on some field...no I did not get the details, I did not really care...I was going to ride Tower of Terror. I did find out later that Daddy Bush put in an appearance at the game (I believe the text message I received said something to the effect of "Men in black suits with dark shades and earpieces don't stick out at a baseball game at all!! Especially in the bathroom.) Really? A pre season, scrubs dominant Met's game? Apparently Daddy Bush didn't know Hollywood Studios was open either
No mind though. Johnie and I enjoy a bit of "girl time" wandering around "The Studios" and eventually find ourselves at The Brown Derby for lunch...walk-up service even! I haven't been able to do that in years!
We started out with drinks (Hey! Don't judge us, it was at least 11:00 am!). I had a *gorgeous* martini, and Johnie had a beautiful drink, though at the moment the name escapes me :wink:
It looked like this! (Um. Sorry. No photos of the 'tini...it went down so very smoothly...)
We both ordered Cobb Salad, enjoyed another round of bread and decided we each *really* needed someone at our own home who's sole job is to make sure our salads are adequately tossed.
For dessert, we shared a generous slice of "Grapefruit Cake" YUM! (Which we were given *only* after being asked, "Do you like grapefruit?" Um. Well. Yes. That's sort of why we asked for the cake...
Very light and citrus-y
We then indulged in one of our FAVORITE after dinner treats...one which we have found that we both enjoy but are *rarely* afforded the opportunity...lingering.
We lingered..10, 20, maybe even 30 minutes after our cake...chatting, laughing, reminiscing...it was *beautiful*
We eventually made our way back out into the sun and The Studios...
