I had dinner with Trish, California Girl, and springchic tonight at Magnolia. Of course, I just saw Trish at her wedding last weekend. I hadn't seen California Girl for months. And this was my first time meeting springchic in real life -- before I'd only drooled at her wedding photos (some of the best of 2007) and chatted with her a bit online. Sometimes mixing up different personalities works really well, and tonight was one of those nights!
On Sunset near Vine, Magnolia was a fun central location with good food and drink. I enjoyed a ginger cosmopolitan, which had a nice spicy bite. My grilled steak salad (spinach, watercress, grilled onions, tomatoes, bacon-horseradish dressing) was very good. In my former fatty life, I would've wanted to eat two of these salads, but Magnolia's portion was ideal for my new on-my-way-to-being-less-fatty self.
We had a good time talking about everything from Stay Puft Marshmallow Grooms to allergies to flaky videographer [former] friends to exercise boot camp faintings. It was a chill and relaxed evening peppered with hearty laughter. I'm not sure if that even makes sense, but that's how it was. 'Twas a lovely evening.
After dinner, while we waited for our cars, we asked the valet to snap a photo for us with my phone. California Girl was seriously cracking me up with her "Spanish." The valet does not have a future career in photography.
