Hello from Newport!
I’m so, so, so excited to be here (it’s my favorite weekend of the whole year!), but the rainy, gray weather is a wicked bummer. It’s a repeat of last year. Wahhhh.
Let’s hope the icky weather clears up soon!
Mal and I arrived in Newport just in time for happy hour!
We kicked-off our weekend by sitting on the porch, staring out into the ocean, and enjoying a couple of beers and a box of Vermont White Cheddar Wheat Thins. Man, it was a delicious happy hour!
Mal and I hung out and chatted for a few hours before wandering down Thames Street to find a place to eat dinner. Eventually, we decided on the Gas Lamp Grille.
The Gas Lamp Grille had a wonderful and cozy atmosphere, but the menu was just so-s0. I ended up ordering the French Onion Soup, which was good, but not great. Of course, I loved the cheese, but it wasn’t anything special.
Mal and I have a 9-mile run planned for the morning, so we’re heading to bed very soon.
Enjoy your Friday night!
