An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Too bad the same isn’t true for dentists.
Bad news is I had to return to the dentist this afternoon for the fourth time in a two month period.
Good news is she was able to polish my teeth. No more yellow stains! Woo hoo! I once again have a smile I can be proud of. 🙂
I’m still sticking with my decision not to return to this particular dentist again. I’ve only been seeing her for a couple of months and she has already managed to disappoint me on multiple occasions. Not cool. I’m going to find a dentist that doesn’t make me angry every time I visit their office. 😉
Good thing I got my pearly whites back before this evening – I had a very important double date to partake in!
My twin bro and his girlfriend Adena are staying with me for the weekend. They’re both still on break from med school and taking a mini-vacation in the area.
I decided to take them to one of my favorite Orlando hot spots (Park Ave in Winter Park) and try out a restaurant I’ve been meaning to give a shot (Spice).
Thanks to an afternoon thunderstorm, we had the perfect weather for dining al fresco.
An order of bruschetta was shared by the table.
I had one piece
Plus a pumpernickel roll.
I was really feeling a summer salad for dinner. The Caprese Salad in particular sounded perfectly fresh and seasonal.
I forgot how much I missed fresh basil, it just brings a whole other level of freshness to any dish. 🙂
I ate about 3/4 of the salad and pawned off the rest on Derek. I also ate half of a side of sweet potato fries.
The plan was to hit up The Wine Room for some drinks after dinner, but Adena was ID-less so we went with plan B.
Buying bottle of wine from Publix is the same as buying wine by the ounce from The Wine Room, right? 😉
1.5 liters of wine for $9.95? Check!
ewww…. no thank you
Look what I found at the check outline!!!
The 4 of us split the bag.
My thoughts? Yum! It was like a whopper – only lighter and crispier. They’re no peanut butter M&Ms but I wouldn’t turn them away if offered. 😉
I really, really wanted a glass of wine, but I was warned by the dentist to stay away from dark liquids such as tea, coffee, and red wine for 24 hours. 🙁
I had a beer instead. 😉
Josh and Adena brought over some Oberon Ales, which are brewed near Adena’s hometown in Michigan.
This was a much lighter beer than I am used to drinking. I prefer a bolder, darker beer, but this one was nice and fruity and a fun change from my usual.
We ended the evening with Sequence.
We tied 1-1. 😉
Time for bed! We have an EARLY morning planned for tomorrow.
I’ll give you a hint. 😉
