Last week, I tagged along with my friend Beany to her gym studio’s holiday party.
Beany trains at Stephen Cabral Studio; and these guys (and girls) know their biznass.
Beany has been training there for quite a while; and really enjoys the personal service there.
The team had the studio decked out in holiday swag; and had a cozy bar set up along with a beautiful spread of nibbles.
Fun story: Beany and I each ordered a glass of wine; but when we noticed the bartender had tequila; I asked if he was pouring “Skinnygirl Margaritas” since this was a gym/heath club. A fairly normal question, right?
After staring at me for what felt like 5 minutes; all the while I was babbling about what went into a Skinnygirl and no, I did not want one, I just wanted to know if he was making them….he finally just said “I don’t know those nuances” and looked away. Um, ok, Mr. Bartender, we’re just talking about a margarita not the Geneva Treaty; sheesh.
Good thing there were other fun things happening.
Healthy Habits Kitchen, a nutritional food service; was sampling their wares:
The studio also put out a beautiful spread of sushi, shrimp, fruit and vegetables for snacking.
After enjoying some sushi and gym talk; Beany and I wished the gang Merry Christmas and headed out for dinner at a neighborhood favorite: Tremont 647.
While we were debating dinner, we were brought some chewy foccaccia and herby hummus. Yum.
Honestly, these were not good. They didn’t taste winey and butter; they just tasted….off. But the servers could not have been nicer; they immediately removed these and took them off the bill.
The other highlight of our appetizers/sides were the Bacony Collard Greens (the picture I took did not come out…so just imagine a big bowl of beautiful collards cooked with bacon). Absolutely AMAZING.Beany told me she wanted to come back every night for dinner to just eat collards.
I say, do it.
Thankfully, Tremont 647 DOES know all the nuances of good food and dining.
