Last Friday, I was feeling restless and wanted to take advantage of the nice weather while it was still around, so Hubby and I went to Trio Lounge in the high gentrified, hip and urban yuppiesh environment of Westborough. Trio Lounge is a nice place to hang out, with a turntable, cushiony chairs and nice paintings on the wall. The menu consists solely of snacks, like a tappas bar, but they are surprisingly filling and delicious:
I know the photo is blurry, it was taken with my phone, but this was the best “cheese on toast” I’ve ever had! It was cottage cheese and local honey on delicious bread. The other item was mushrooms on toast, almost as delicious.
The back of the menu has an amusing article called : Are you a Douche? and lists the Douchey criteria, one of which is that if you don’t tip 15% every time you’re at a restaurant you are a douche. Funny, last time I checked, tipping was for good service. I am polite to those in the retail/food industry because I know how much it sucks, but if you’re a jerk to me despite my being nice, you don’t get 15%-20%. Do you guys agree or disagree?
The rest of the douche criteria seemed fairly spot on though. As for the other aspects of the restaurant, the service was good, though our food took awhile, which was weird considering there weren’t that many people in the restaurant, ah well. But overall, I recommend this place, it’s pricey but worth it!
The bridal shower was good, but crazy intimidating. The groom is Catholic and practically every single female member of his family was there, all chatting and laughing about the fam. For a shy, non-relative, it was incredibly awkward, but the hosts and most of the guests were friendly and welcoming. (Thank God! I would’ve hated to be around a bunch of judgey, cliquey, uptight and mean spirited women, no thank you!) There was one other token, non relative and she was thrilled when I mentioned enjoying gaming, so it looks like we’ll have some more people to play with soon. Which is great because I’ve been waiting to play Arkham Horror for awhile now!
How do you guys feel when surrounded by strangers who all know each other? Are you shy or outgoing?
Well that was my previous weekend! This weekend probably won’t be as busy, have a good one!
