An Afternoon with the Ladies!

What a great way to spend a rainy Friday afternoon. My bff M and I drove all over town sofa shopping. M just bought a pied-a-terre in Chicago and decorating it is half the fun.

A comfy yet stylish sleeper sofa is a must so I have the feeling that this may take a few trips. I am hoping that I get a chance to sleep on it few times, myself!

In the meantime we were having fun listening to Barbra Streisand’s new CD, Love is the Answer . Bette, Madonna and Celine were also along for the ride which made for an afternoon of Divas and dishing! Streisand’s latest album is a collection of smooth, super mellow standards that will slowly melt you into sublime submission and have you wishing for love and romance.

We ended up at a gorgeous Irish Pub that looks as though it was plucked out of the middle ages. The food was anything but medieval.

The seafood linguine at Stone Mad was light and fresh with a delicate lemon butter sauce.

The food was better than expected, since Irish Pub food has never been a huge favorite fof mine. They also have great beer and nice wine selections. M had the burger and said that it is one of the best he’s ever had.

The waiter offered to make us a Guiness float and as intriguing as that sounded at the time, I am quite sure that my stomach would protest!
