Friday at 5. Destination: Lord Baltimore Hotel’s LB Tavern.

I walked up Charles Street and met Jacob and our friend, Jay Madairy, for drinks.

Long Island Iced Teas for Jacob, Manhattans for Jay, and whiskey sours for me. And crazy-good truffle fries for all.

We joked. Told stories. And laughed a lot. What a nice way to begin a weekend.
