It’s been a very long weekend for me and the rainy weather didn’t help much in production either. After lounging around the house for the entire weekend, I was excited for the upcoming outing that me and Lulu scheduled. On Tuesday, Lulu and I met up with Becca of Ruby Press for some good food and drinks. We ended up at this beautiful romantic hotel bar in Berkeley, CA. Located on the urban Berkeleyesque Shattuck Street, finding the classy Hotel Shattuck Plaza was a bit unexpected. When I walked in, I was pretty much in awe and surprise that there was a place so classy and elegant in this busy and eclectic boulevard. It had sort of a parisienne or romantic feel. I instantly fell in love with this place.
We ended up at the bar, where local commuters were chit chatting and drinking after a long day’s work. The man next to me was enjoying some delicious appetizer while reading Time Magazine. Through the large windows, I can see the rain pouring down hard. Around me were people talking politics, enjoying cocktails, and connecting laptops. This made me feel like I was in another world.
Ari, our bartender was really cool and made us some secret-not-on-the-menu drinks. We both started off with the Chocolate Martini. I thought that was delicious. It had an espresso mocha taste that I know coffee lovers would enjoy. Lulu had the Converter which was this delicious fruity drink which he lit on fire. I ended up with this hibiscus, eldeflower, margarita (forgot one ingredient) that was distinctly tasty and different from what I’m used to. We both had some pulled pork sliders with onion rings that reminded me of sloppy joes. I love my sloppy joes so this was a definitely delish.
We ended up meeting with Becca, one of our PR coordinators and we shared some good laughs and conversations. We ended up talking about some of the events that we’ll be attending, and all of that good stuff. All in all, it was a great meeting and it was great to meet Becca! Me and Lulu are looking forward to working with Ruby Press :) -Daisy
