The Widda Bistro and Bar & Grill is open for business!!
« on: March 30, 2015, 03:09:23 PM »
I had a couple of requests to re-open the "Bistro".  For those who weren't around, this was a fun thread we kept going... Oh, back around 2008-2011 maybe.  Virtual Bistro, coffee, treats, pretty umbrella drinks, everyone's favorite food served.  The fire is always going, the weather is always perfect, and all problems can be left at the door.

So anyone who's interested, we're back open for business.  Who want's to pull up the first barstool?  I have to admit, I'm no good at mixing drinks, so I can serve you anything that comes straight out of a bottle or can... Otherwise, feel free to hop the bar and start mixing.  I'm enjoying a glass of wine right now... My feet are propped up by the fire, and I've brought my kitty Bo along if anyone needs some snuggling.  Be careful though... Bo is a master at knocking things off any table, so keep ahold of your drinks!!

Hi, Mokie!

Rosie and I are coming in!  Is Budger around?  We need more animals.  I'll stick to water with lime right now...I have to get a paper written this evening.  And Bo better not knock my water over on my keyboard as I'm typing!
Life is short.  Love with all you've got.

Hi Guys!
Well, I will bring by Rua, aka Boo-boos-my red point Siamese- he is ten today, so would like some smoked salmon, please. Louie is my rescue dog, but he likes girls, and is kept in line by Boo-boos. I would love a cappuccino with brown sugar, whole milk-thanks!

Okay, all orders are coming up... And all fur-babies are welcome!

Okay, so Maureen is writing a paper.  She can have the table over there in the corner to work, so we still get the pleasure of her company.  What is everyone else up to today?  The Bachelor and I have been doing some spring cleaning, and listing for sale some things we've just had taking up room in the closets or attic.  He's ahead of me right now with one sale at $25.

We should probably check in some of the bistro closets... Who knows what we have stuffed in there???

Well, I am back- poor Boo-boos puked into Mike's old shoes. I was really happy for a moment that I could finally throw away his "slippers" but he hosed them out. It doesn't seem to bother the man that the homeless were better shoed until I took him in hand. He can't let these go though. I am going through more "stuff" to donate- how are you guys selling stuff? craigslist?

Right now we're using a local Buy Sell and Trade site that has a facebook page.  If things don't sell there, some will go on Craigslist or Ebay, but we're trying to avoid the hassle of postage.

I'll take one of whatever is on special, please.  As part of my efforts toward the minimalist challenge, I sold DH's 35mm camera today.   I had no interest in "real" photography (I just point and click the cellphone  when needed, lol), so it seems kinda silly after all these 5+ years that I felt a little pang when I handed it over to the buyer this afternoon.  (a very appreciative college Photography student)   Crazy how these moments hit when you least expect it.  Sigh!

Do you like fruity little umbrella drinks?  I can probably mix up something pretty... Not sure how it will taste.  We have lots of umbrellas though.   ;D

Yeah, getting rid of that stuff that we don't really need, but have emotional attachments to, is really hard... No matter how much we tell ourselves it shouldn't matter.

Yes to umbrella drinks, yes to amaretto sours, yes to moscato, yes to a nice Reisling, and hell yes to a 7 and 7!!

Will someone call me a can at the end of my visit?!

I'll take an umbrella to add to the glass of Gavi wine I just poured, unless someone can bring me a vodka and tonic.

And Baylee....you're a can!  :)

Damn, I meant: call me a cab!!

Lol.

But thanks for obliging my odd request to be called a can. And after imbibing, I probably won't give two shits what I'm called.

Or even remember.

Dang... someone took my punch line!!  Oh well, tell ya what... Y'all just hop behind the bar and help yourself.  Umbrellas are on the house.  Anyone want me to change the channel off of Dancing with the Stars?  I like to imagine I could dance all of the "stars" off the floor.  Although I'd like to do a body-swap with Rumer Willis.   :-\

And Mancino... Can you bring the sequin trimmed leotard with the gold fringe skirt, and the unicycle, to the Bistro?  I think maybe we could have fun with those.   :D

You bet!  Shall I add in the poodle skirt and saddle shoes costume I also found?    ;D

Oh that would be awesome!!  We could do our own Dancing with the Wids.
