A Little Sippy Sippy

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 1

This is my favorite drink. Possibly my most favorite drink ever! It's called an Asian Pear Cosmo and they serve them up in the Twin Cities at the Westin Hotel. I love this hotel by the way, if you are ever visiting Minneapolis check it's located downtown and is the perfect blend of comfortableness and chic. Sidebar....Tom and Ben stayed there a few years back when they were passing through and they loved it too.

Now back to my "drank." This sucker is strong yet refreshing. It's made with pear vodka and Asian pear puree that the chef whips up fresh daily...for this reason, once the puree is gone it's gone until the next day when the chef makes a new batch. Those are the ingredients fillers! It's great in summer or winter because it's refreshing but has the crispness that I generally associate with colder months. And if you have ever had an Asian Pear you know that they have more texture to them than a traditional say Bartlett pear and some would say a different taste as well.

The cost is $10 bucks a pop, so your bar tab will add up quick but they are so damn good.
One more note about the Westin Hotel use to be a bank (built in 1941), so the bank vault is now the wine cellar. The bank's old conference rooms and offices are now private dining areas. It's really a very lovely and cool hotel.

Forever 21...Not Just for the Kids!

Monday, September 14, 2009 0
Ladies and Gents don't sleep on Forever 21 when it comes to hair accessories and costume jewelry..they have some great deals on cute, trendy items for all ages! Now the clothes may not be appropriate for us 40 something...every once in a while I will find a cute and age appropriate top...I snatched up this one for under 10 bucks, but generally speaking the clothes there are for 20 something set, but that doesn't mean we can't troll the endless table of earrings, bracelets, bangles, rings, hats and hair accessories.
If you have a forever 21 store in your area I suggest you make a trip there for great fall accessories on the cheap, otherwise check them out online and order that way. I do know that in some states there are stand alone Forever21 stores that only sell accessories.
Here's a peak at some of my accessories from Forever21!!
