I hadn't been planning to approach him, but he was looking around casually when his sister stepped away from the bar for a few minutes, and I figured that was as good a sign as any that he wouldn't mind my saying hi.
NorthStar House is off to a really good start after a few weeks, and obviously I'm glad we wandered over there tonight! I was enjoying some wine with friends who live a couple of blocks away, and we meandered to the pub for a round of drinks when Amy got a text from her friend Katie, whom I'd met there the first time we went.
I had a Bloody Mary, which was really tasty. It turns out that they roast their own tomatoes and onions, and then puree them, to make the base for their Bloody Mary. No wonder it was so delicious! I look forward to having more of those.
