Something new every week: Friday special February 23, 2010

Posted by silverlinedletters in slice of heaven, something new every week.

Flutes at the Fort

This post comes a little late but the memory of last friday still remains fresh in my head!

Last friday, I did something I’d not done since December- I took the day off, placed work and everything else on the backburner and spent it with two of my wonderful girlfriends, Geri and Stephanie. It’s something we call our “friday special”, a little tradition that began last December and a genius idea of Steph’s. It was also Geri’s birthday so we planned an entire day of food, song and celebrations.

This was our itinerary:

1. Brunch at Flutes at the Fort which is set in a beautiful + peaceful colonial-style bungalow at the Fort Canning.

2. Shopping @ Ion Orchard where Geri picked out her present.

3. Martinis at Morton’s at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The steak sandwiches had me at hello. The lumpcrab artichoke and spinach dip accompanied by warm toasted bread blew Steph away.

4. Valentine’s Day at 7pm as per Geri’s special request. It was a surprisingly good, slightly unconventional flick!

5. Final destination: the Old Brown Shoe where Lin dedicated and sang Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” to her. The band was fantastic, the guitarists aced the guitar parts and the song just couldn’t have been more apt.

To-die-for food, wonderful music and great, great girlfriends. To quote the Cure, “Friday, I’m in love”.
