Yesterday was suffused with sun and warmth, or relative warmth for this time of year and compared with most of this frigid winter. The city's residents poured out onto the streets, dodging the puddles and receding piles of filthy snow to enjoy the thaw. A short-lived thaw as the polar vortex is dipping back here this week and some snow is also forecast. But next weekend marks the beginning of March, which gives us hope in our sun-lightened moods.
We walked over to the South End and had brunch at the Metropolis cafe, getting right in after the too-hip place across the street quoted us a 45-minute wait. We both ordered the huevos rancheros, which were delicious, inexpensive, and looked fabulous as well - here's the pic from their web site:
We were back in the South End last night as well to see a play at the Boston Center for the Arts in their black box theatre, Alan Ayckbourne's Neighborhood Watch, which was fun. We are all so tired of being shut-ins with this winter's onerous weather, it was therapeutic to get out and about finally.
It's warmish again today, but more cloudy. Still, we'll likely get out for a bit while we can.
