We had a really relaxing day today. Started off with cafe cubano for myself and an iced Americano for Henry at El Diablo.
The decor is really something. Henry couldn't stand it, as it was the total antithesis to his preference for stark, modern, and linear architecture. I thought it was really charming.
It's really...yellow in there.
No we didn't sit here...we're not that
But you gotta admit it's cute!
nothing is safe from those wacky paint jobs...not even the stools....
this was great!
Henry went crazy with the mix-ins, like cocoa and cinnamon, because he doesn't really like coffee.
I just started playing Scrabble, so Henry and I try to get in a game a week. He's one of those uber Scrabble nerds who's memorized all the weird 2 letter and 3 letter words, like "qat", "ae" and "xi". So it's not often that I win.
However...today, the Scrabble gods were with me. Check out the scores--
363 for me, 307 for Henry. Take that
to the bank and cash it, Mr. Lo!
(BTW--we know now that "hed" isn't a word, but I bluffed my way through that one.
After coffee/Scrabble, we got some drinks and a snack at Metropolitan Market. He had the Cock and Bull ginger beer (really good! extra ginger-y), and I got the rhubarb soda. The Michel Cluizel bar was only $5.49....I've been playing like $11Cdn per bar up in Vancouver. That's robbery! I know now to get it in Seattle.
