Hey friends, Heather here on behalf of the girls. Our weekly wrap-up began last night as we met up at Travail. We did our go-around-the-table thing which included the usual laughs, big reactions, table pounding and tears. All of this in-between ordering figlets, fries, white and light, beef tartare (Julie’s brave moment) and my steak & sweet corn heaven. I mean it was medium rare steak slices sitting in a little cream-of-corn puddle with a sauteed stack of little potato sheets. Yes, it was. I just realized I didn’t even share a bite. So sorry, girls! You all should go visit because it’s nummy and the “guys” travailing on your behalf are great.
Ok, back from reliving and onto today. This week Em has returned from the west, Julie is finally feeling a bit warm (she might even say sweaty), and I’m seeing this week end with a little Over the Rhine speaking my mind. Here’s a peek at our both/and week:
