Happy hour!

We headed over to Champps for happy hour at about 5 PM. Todd, John, Leanna, me, Carmen, Kristy, Todd, etc. We sat at the bar for a while where I had a 22-ounce Bud Lite and a shot of Patron. Eventually (once everyone else arrived) we got a table. I ordered the New York strip (12-oz) and it was surprisingly good for a place like Champps. With it, I had 2 mai-tais that seemed unusually strong to me, as if the bartenders were not used to making them. Still, they were tasty. We finally left the bar around 9:30 and I came back up to my office to cool off for a while before I caught the train home. I’ll probably be here for a little while longer.
