First, we stopped by the Copley farmers market - the season started today! (I'll write a post about our trip to the market next.) Then, we headed down Huntington Ave to Minibar, which is in the cozy/trendy lobby of the boutique Copley Square Hotel. On Mondays through Thursdays, 5pm to 7pm, Minibar has $2 kobe beef sliders. Yep, $2. Kobe beef. Massaged, fatty, tender beef.
We started with drinks: a mojito for me, lychee martinis for Joy and Julia. They had to run out somewhere to replenish the lychee supply, so they brought over the ungarnished martinis and came back a few minutes later with a toothpick-impaled lychee in a shot glass. It was kind of adorable.
|Julia and her lychee martini. Do you pronounce it LEE-chee or LIE-chee? Julia and Joy both say LIE, but I thought it was LEE.|
|Doesn't matter that the bun was lame...the beef was great!|
|Squash potstickers. Julia's sexy legs not included.|
|What's with the upscale fry cone? I've seen this so many places.|
