After work, I was on a mission. All I wanted to do was go to Bouchee for dinner for their French onion soup and then head to Miniluxe for a manicure since it’s a running off night, and you know what? Neither of those things happened. I walked up to Bouchee only to find it’s now a freaking Papa Razzi, what the F? Why the Eff would I want to go to a freaking Papa Razzi? What happened to my favorite little French Bistro? Apparently it closed to make room for a Papa Razzi. What did happen was a half dozen phone calls to restaurants in the Back Bay inquiring if they served French onion soup…I know that is insane and I don’t even care that I did it.
[In case you were wondering, those who do not: Stephanie’s, Cafeteria, Towne, Joe’s. Those who do: Abe & Louie’s, Capital Grille, Brasserie Jo]
So we went to Abe & Louie’s and got the stupid soup. It’s kind of not the same when you were planning on consuming an 8 out of 10 rated soup and you find yourself sitting there eating a 5 out of 10 soup, there was nothing wrong with it, but it wasn’t anything special. Soup is one of those things that wraps around me and makes me feel awesome, this soup didn’t make it that far, it was more like a pat on the back.
As for the manicure, we were rudely turned away at Miniluxe so went to one of those Asian mani/pedi places (Town Nails on Newbury) and got really great manicures for half the price of Miniluxe and were better served. I think my friend and I were equally satisfied with the manis, they’re like extra special treats with really super new colors and all that. They even put on the tv for us to watch the gossip roundup… Miniluxe was Not doing that.
When I got home…something awesome was waiting for me: an ultra thoughtful card and a gift from my friend to wish me good luck in Chicago.
How completely Nice is this? She’s just that kind of person, she goes out of her way to make everyone feel loved. I’m really overwhelmed, it’s just such a touching gesture. Thank you, it’s so much appreciated!
One more day of work and then we’re off…
