They say the way to a man’s heart is his stomach, but honestly I think it works for women too.
Guys, if you want to impress a woman (or maybe this is just me) take her to a place where she has an emotional experience.
The Odd Duck is a great place to do just this. The food is AH-mazing. Each farm-to-market dish was a whole new experience. But when the dessert came, I had to refrain from scraping the plate clean. The only thing that stopped me was that it was a first date. My ingrained impulse to be polite and mannerly (along with my grandmother's voice in my head) was being overridden by an intense desire to eat every single bite. I wanted to pick up that plate and lick it clean. Even though I’d known him for years, I maintained my composure and shared (even though he probably would've just laughed at me if I hadn't).
APPLE. BUTTER. CAKE. Try it if it’s still on the menu (the chef likes to change things up fairly frequently). You’ll thank me later.
I'm single and loving it. Two kids and a busy job. Life is an adventure. Being single is liberating. Life is short, spread joy.
