I met the girls at Black's Bar and Kitchen around 5:00. I was very impressed with the happy hour menu. They had $5.00 glasses of wine, and a couple of beers from local breweries on special. There was a short martini list and I looked it over, but all of the options appeared to be sugar bombs like Lemon Drops and Cosmos so I steered away.
The happy hour food menu was short: mussels, oysters, shrimp, and calamari. We got an order of mussels and I also ordered half a dozen oysters. Both were delicious. The mussels came in a very garlic-y crushed tomato sauce. The oysters were from the Chesapeake Bay and I doused them with lots of vinegar. My whole mouth just started watering as I'm typing this. Unfortunately I suck at life and I got very distracted by sequins and wine and I forgot to take pictures. You all will have to use your imaginations and envision a plate of crushed ice topped with six oysters and little cups of vinegar, horseradish, and cocktail sauce.
After happy hour I headed home. I was a little bit hungry, but not enough for a full dinner. I poked around in the fridge and found half of a chicken breast and some pepperonis. Logic today tells me that I should have made a buffalo chicken pizza, but I was too tired. I warmed up the chicken breast in the microwave and had a regular Tortilla Pizza alongside it. It was the perfect ending to an already lovely evening.
