Last night Alli and I met up with a couple of colleagues from work, and their husbands, for dinner and drinks. It was a lot of fun 😉
We went to Ivy for dinner, first. I like their selection of small plates, and it’s always fun to share dinner family-style. They also have a reasonable and reasonably-priced wine list, as well as good cocktails. All the food was good, and the company made it great. We had a nice bottle of prosecco, followed by a Malbec. I also had a girly-looking, but delicious, pre-dinner cocktail: the Liquid Kitty. It’s basically grape vodka and blue curacao, with some lime juice.
After dinner, we went one block away, to Blu, for drinks. I like the view and the quiet atmosphere at Blu. It’s always half-empty late at night, even on weekends, so you can actually talk to your dinner companions, which is cool.
All in all, a very fun night, and a great way to end the week. I think we’re developing a nice social culture at HubSpot, slowly but surely. We didn’t even talk about internet marketing that much.
