Tonights dinner was themed "orphan night" for BPG. Luckily none of us are actually orphans but its nice for a few girls to get together during parents weekend when they're feeling lonely. After transferring to UR I realized how big a deal parents/ alumni weekend is. To make it more clear to you, Bill Clinton is the keynote speaker. Talk about amazing.. However, I was unable to get tickets along with half the rest of the UR population.
This weekend for me consists of catching up with mom and dad, going shopping and a dinner at a new restaurant that we used a Groupon for! I will also be meeting up with a few friends from home/ other schools to catch up and have a good time.
As for tonight, we went to The Distillery on Mt. Hope Avenue. The wait was a bit long but granted we did have a party of nine. We crammed ourselves into a booth built for 4-6 to make sure we didn't starve and had a great time! I ordered the "Chicken Speidie" atop a greek salad which I gobbled right up. I have to say it was really good. Usually sports bar food is sub par and mostly fried or somehow bad for you but I think I found a winner in the somewhat healthy category--of course ordering the dressing on the side. I finished my meal with a dessert of an onion ring that I stole of another girls plate (I am a huge mooch).
I decided to dress up for the event by adding some pearls to a rather dreary dark outfit. It was necessary today since the weather has been so rainy and sad. I rocked the whole tight skirt with tights, black riding boots, a quilted vest & plum sweater along with my infamous J.Crew Pearls. I really think that pearls can totally change the look of an outfit and make even the most casual, dressy. I have even gone as far as to pair them with a vintage Sabres shirt.
