On Sunday morning I took my mom out for a special Mother's Day brunch at Radegast Hall and Biergarten in Brooklyn. She's a huge fan of tasting new and different beers and you can never go wrong with brunch. We had a few drinks and some delicious eggs with potato pancakes. We sat there for hours, hanging out in the sun from the skylights. The only thing that was odd were all the children and babies running around. I'm pretty anti kids in bars. Not because I think its inappropriate to show your kids how to drink responsibly, but because I go to a bar to enjoy being an adult. Then it struck me that my relationship with my mom is wonderful now that I'm a grown up. We've always been close but now we talk about things beyond me and my friends and chores and school. We can talk about books, and travel, music and just about anything else and even though I'm her kid, I'm not a kid. To me there was a kind of paradigm shift (as my high school religion teacher would say) and I saw my mom as someone with whom I could relate to beyond being my mom. I'm really quite lucky that I have her.
Also, please keep your kids away from me while I'm drinking. Especially before noon cause that's just not cool.
Sometimes on the weekend I wear the same outfit two days in a row. This is the outfit I wore on Saturday, then out with my mom on Sunday.RadegastMom showing me a list of craft brews she wants to try.Kolsch in the morningRemember when I "whined" about rings?
