Last night I went to see music with Slip and Arrow, but first we went out to dinner. We went to Lovely’s for pizza. As you know, I don’t eat a lot of pizza—I’m really only interested in the Green Mountain Special from Parker Pie—but this pizza was amazing! We had two kinds, but the best was the agretti & spigarello. Not only did I eat pizza, but I learned something! Agretti, otherwise known as salsola soda among other names, is a Mediterranean succulent. And it was succulent! Spigarello is a type of broccoli, native to Italy, that must not taste like broccoli because I don’t like broccoli on pizza but I loved this! The pizza also had lemon and capers, and we added anchovies. Now I have two favorite pizzas!
The food was the highlight, but we also saw music and that was nice as well. Slip and Arrow seem to know e v e r y o n e, something that seems to happen when you’re in your twenties. I thought I might be the oldest person there, but there were people with grey hair who were clearly older than me, so it was okay. And it was a friendly crowd. The music was good, too.
Slip and Arrow are fun to spend time with because they are nice and cute and talk about food and fret over fashion and hipsterism and are nice to me. But also because they tell goofy stories, like one of their first dates:
Miss you tons!
