625. Bravo
Definition: (excl) used to express approval of something a person has done well
Location Placed: Starbucks, Roosevelt Island, New York City, New York
Date Placed: 9/30/14 at 4:27pm

I met an out of town friend for dinner and a bit of an adventure in New York City. We decided to check out Roosevelt Island as we had never been. A word to the wise, do not visit on Tuesday when most of the tourist-y type things don't happen to be open. Despite that it ended up being a good trip. We walked the length of the island, saw the abandoned small pox hospital, the lighthouse at the northern tip, and even took the tram back over to Manhattan. Definitely worth a visit if you happen to be in the area. Provided that day isn't a Tuesday.

Location Placed: Impressive Designs, Indian Rocks Beach, Florida

While I was down there, I picked up one of those deals on a Wine and Painting class from Impressive Designs. Myself and my guest, who are not artists by any stretch of the imagination, completed a very lovely sunset scene with water and palm trees. I definitely would go back there again and bought my host a deal as a thank you gift. If you happen to be in the area and interested in doing a painting class, I would highly recommend it. The shop was also neat with a bunch of pieces of art that we were able to look at prior to starting. They also provide a glass of local wine and a bit of wine tasting before hand. I will say that I do not like the majority of wines, but discovered an awesome white non-grape sangria that I quite enjoyed! I look forward to getting back there and taking another painting class again. It was a lot of fun!

Date Placed: Cobb Countryside Theater 12, Clearwater, Florida

I popped down to Florida to take a short visit to see some relatives. One of the rainy days, we decided to head up to the nice movie theater in the mall. It definitely had solid seats. It's not as good as the new movie theater seats at home, but I really am a fan of the stadium seating that the theater offered. A little bit blurry in the placement picture since I was afraid I was going to be made with all the people around! But all together a solid placement and a good time.
