Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Weekend Snapshot

Written by Patti on November 19th, 2012

Good Morning Darlings,

Eric and I celebrated 12 years of wedded bliss this weekend.

Here’s what we did for fun!

Friday night found us at Philip Bonneau’s Heroes + Villains exhibit. Amazingly creative photography based on fantasy characters. There was a DJ, a circus performer and a bartender who looked exactly like Hugh Jackman. Fun!

My favorite was Max.

After the exhibit we grabbed a bite and went home. I had a zombie tour in the morning! If you love The Walking Dead and are looking for the coolest Christmas gift ever, tickets to this tour would make you the darling of the holidays!

With the tour wrapped up for the day, we headed to AFX Studios. This was the best place. Tons of special effects make up. Eric knows me so well. I enjoyed myself thoroughly here!

It’s me! With the Gene Simmons’ demon sarcophagus! How cool is that?

Eric met some new friends, too!

That was the most fun. Time for dinner!

Cucina Asellina was our dinner destination. This very chic space on Peachtree Street in midtown felt much like being in New York City. Without the crowds and traffic. Perfect for a romantic evening. Tended to by General Manager, Marc Melhado and server, Brandon, we had an incredible meal. Take a look.

Prosecco for me and the Sage, St. Germain and Lilet Blanc cocktail for Eric.

The beet salad was the perfect way to begin our meal.

Eric opted for the luscious cocoa parpadelle with boar ragu.

My choice was the special carbonara. So rich and decadent!

We ended our time at Cucina Asellina with their fantastic tiramisu. Light, creamy and perfect. I’m still thinking about it.

To walk off some of the calories we strolled next door to the lobby bar at the Loews Hotel. Um, I guess walking next door for more cocktails doesn’t really count as a exercise regime, but part of it was uphill. Don’t judge me.

Sunday was spent watching The Walking Dead and eating Eric’s awesome chicken chili.

Best anniversary ever. I love you, Eric!

xoxo, Patti
