I’m going to post about the two awesome things I did so far this week HERE!
Tuesday night the Polenboys got together for a very belated birthday dinner for Twin A. We’ve been treating the birthday boy to a very fancy meal, and we broke the bank Tuesday night by spending some time at Nobu. Their omakase is quite delicious, as is their sake. I’ve been lucky enough to eat there a few times before (their Restaurant Week prices are totally reasonable, especially lunch!), and it is always amazing.
Last night I was lucky enough to attend the New York premiere of The Way Way Back - PSB knows one of the producers from, well, sorry but it’s true, way way back - she taught him when she was in college and he was in high school! We caught a quick dinner before the movie, and at first we were a little concerned because there were 200 people on line to get in, and we weren’t sure if we should be on that line or walking the red carpet. Fortunately, PSB sent her friend a quick text, and was told that we had reserved seats and tickets being held for us on will call. We found the desk and got our tickets and were quite relieved that we didn’t have to stay on that mega-line. I was super psyched to also note that we were sitting about 15 feet away from Toni Colette, but I managed to not harass her or yell “You’re terrible Muriel!”
The movie itself is outstanding. Honestly, it was everything I had hoped Adventureland was going to be. Full of awesome teenage angst, and very very funny, and very sweet. It was extremely well cast and well acted and had a great story. I highly recommend it when it opens later this summer.
