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
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...
