Yesterday I completed Day 4 of the April Challenge (essentially a farewell tour of Memphis) by joining my roommate and some girlfriends at Mollie Fontaine’s for drinks after work. One of the things about being a personal trainer is that it’s tough to be ready to go out for after work drinks or happy hour – mostly because I’ve usually just finished teaching a class and am sweaty and smelly. Luckily the girls don’t care and most people can’t tell as long as I throw a scarf over the sweat line of my hair….
I can’t believe this is only the second time I’ve ever been here. The first was that same night I sang Proud Mary on stage at a sorority formal. Last night we sat outside on the patio beneath gigantic, glowing lanterns and surrounded by the flowering trees I love. We talked about previous birthdays, funny stories from work, men (boys mostly) and Easter plans. I sipped on a MFL special concoction of Grey Goose, cucumbers and white grape juice – it was refreshing and not too sweet. We eventually moved inside to hear the live music. The house has a lot of character and we chose a nook of very comfortable lounges. It’s quite an experience and I would highly recommend a drink here!
