A Saturday in September

(Excuse my crappy cellphone pictures)

Saturday, Max and I went to Carroll St. Cafe over in East ATL to grab some 6th-year anniversary-type grub. We started with some pretty sweet tapas and a bottle of the house red (not sure what it was, I don't claim to be a wine connoisseur of any sort). I had some amazing curried chicken and Max had a NY strip steak that didn't suck at all. It was a very good dinner.

Later, we decided to take a nice nighttime stroll around Cabbage Town to work off some of my tipsy-ness. Max suggested we take a trip through the cemetery and I suggested we visit our friends Chevy and Daniel's new place nearby instead. After walking (weather has been pretty nice here) and drinking a little more that I night, I went home, feeling thoroughly satisfied. Max and I have not gone on a date like this even long before he left for Los Angeles, and I was reminded of just how much I used to love it.

On an unrelated note, Thao and I played some pretty shitty tennis (I came in there not having practiced in a month) this past Sunday on our first match of the Women's fall season. Good thing we won anyways. I'm sure the fact I was just hitting lobs and at one point shouted "DAAAAAAAMN" when a ball almost hit Thao in the face really threw off our suburban, housewife-y opponents' morale off. Guess no one told them that's how the Nguyen Sisters do. Federer should probably take some notes from us, that damn chump.

Have a lovely week--more fall-like weather is a-comin'!
