As my energy has been coming back, I’m slowly making my way back into the social scene. I’ve not been attending the same number of events as I was 2009, but am happy to catch a few fun activities here and there.
So a girlfriend and I decided to meet up for dinner before attending the Walker After Hoursparty. After debating a few locations, I mentioned that I haven’t been to Vincent a Restaurant in awhile and I always know the meal will be good. So off we went.
We were stuffed on sharing three starters! Of course, that might have to do with consuming the entire bread basket as their bread is so darn good.
I do tend to be a purist in that I prefer my burgers to be made of beef, but these duck breast mini burgers were so good! With a bit of crunch in the condiments that added the right amount of texture.
My dinner companion asked me three times what was in the salad. She didn’t believe that it was lentils and said had she known they were that good, she wouldn’t have been avoiding them all these years.
But the best part of the evening was biting into a perfectly prepared scallop with fingerling potatoes and leeks. So good.
After dinner we made our way to the Walker Art Center for the CMYK vs. RGB event. We debated what the letters stood for, as I couldn’t remember “K”. If you aren’t sure what I am talking about, it’s all about color. CyanMagentaYellowBlack vs. RedGreenBlue. It’s strange that I just realized last night that my printer is CMYK, but I tend to do all of my design in RGB. Oops.
My favorite part of the event was a machine that would take a typed signal from a computer to punch out holes to spell out whatever you wanted.
I love it for its simplicity and impact. We wanted in line a bit, but finally when my turn was up, I punched out “Just Breathe” as a reminder to myself.
I’d love to have one of these in my office, but I’m afraid I wouldn’t get any work done.
We ended the night having buttons made.
If you have a chance and have interest in graphic design, check out the exhibit, as there are some really outstanding pieces.
