An impressive and fun evening...

Hello ladies and gentlemen. Hope that you are enjoying the end of summer and for those of you on the east coast, hope the back to back punch of an eartquake and a hurricane wasn't too much for you. Doesn't sound like fun to us...but of course, our 24 inches of snow in February probably doesn't sound too good either. Since I tend to focus on the recommendations for people to be MORE classy, I thought I would tell you about an evening where everyone was classy and it was just an all around good time.

My good friend and I attended a pop up dinner on Saturday night. Now this is a bit of a new idea where chefs in the area create a small little dinner party at various places around the city. John, the FAB chef at this event, is without a restaurant right now and I think wanted to cook for everyone. Not only was the event well run, food came out in a timely manner (5 courses), the food was FABULOUS (South American/Spanish style), the people was so nice. It was truly like having a dinner party at someone's house. Everyone was seriously dressed appropriately. Every person we met was nice and wanted to talk about interesting stuff. It was so great.

My favorite bartender was there mixing drinks for each course (and he rocks). My lead singer from my favorite band was there (yes, Poi Dog Pondering's Frank Orrall). He was trying to bus tables (so cute) and was super, super cool and kept spinning great tunes all night. And I got to wear my beautiful red Tahari dress and Badgley Mischka shoes, and yes, I know that sounds silly, but I have these fabulous clothes in my closet that I never get to wear...so there.

All in all, everyone was classy and it was a great evening. So hats OFF Chicago, well done (thanks John, Justin and Frankie and of course, my date, Levy). I was completely impressed. And you know I don't say that very often!

On a personal note, still trying to get past my break up. As most of you know, I was dating someone (HT) that I really, really liked (hell, probably loved) and he broke up with me at the end of June (via email). Man, when we were together, I was SOOO happy. Sadly, I had waited quite some time for someone like him that met all of my requirements (so picky) and sadly, I think I will be waiting a long time again. Some may say I am too picky...heck, many of my friends say that, but I am not settling (for anything less than everything, thanks Sugarland). So keep your eyes open for Mr. Perfect for Jzzrgrl if you will. In the meantime, I am going to continue to enjoy my friends and family.

Labor Day Weekend is upon us...and as I have discussed with many of my friends multiple times in the past week or two, we all seem to just be in a funk, people are angry, the economy stinks, morale is horrible. So hey, let's buck up ladies and gentlemen seriously! Enjoy yourself this weekend, spend time with friends and family, go out, drink, eat, be merry, celebrate the positives in life (I KNOW you can find some).

Hey I am in the worst financial situation of my life, I am single (AGAIN), not enamored with my job and hey let's face it, my business is not growing like I need it to.... But I intend on seeing my Huskers win their first game as a part of the Big Ten, see some family and hang with friends...and I JUST MIGHT have a glass of wine or two (or 12). And I am not going to worry about how to pay my bills this weekend. :) So I suggest you follow suit, cuz that's what classy, intelligent, fun people do!

  1. Sounds like you had a great night! I want to try one of those pop up dinner - I love dressing up but never seem to go anywhere that requires it (but hey, we're in seattle, where jeans are considered dressing up). Sorry again about HT. He's really missing out on a fabulous, classy, amazing woman! :)

    And remember, one thing I always tell myself when I feel like I'm in need of someone else in my life: "A woman needs a man as much as a fish needs a bicycle."

    I'm not sure if it's the thinking behind it or the imagery that the saying conjures, but either way, it always makes me smile a little.

    Hope you have a wonderful LDW!
