I met Cathy at Capella University and she was always one of my favorite people to run into in the hallway. Here's the lesson part of this story- always ask people to coffee when you think they're cool! Cathy no longer works at Capella and so our spontaneous hellos are no more. Lucky for me we were connected on Facebook and when she recently mentioned she wanted to visit her friend, Rachel, the manager at Pizzeria Lola, I jumped at the chance to join her. Pizzeria Lola was the Day 42 photo so I've already established it is in my 'hood!
Before we were seated at a table, we enjoyed a beer at the bar. Deschuttes Black Butte Porter for me and Fulton Lonely Blond for Cathy. When we were seated and it was time to order, it was a tough choice to pick a pie since I fell hard for both the Xerxes and The Boise on previous visits, it was hard to imagine I'd love another. Turns out I'm a promiscuous pizza lover! I went with Sweet Italian, and boy was it tasty! After we had our leftover pizza boxed up, Rachel sent over a complimentary House-made vanilla soft serve ice cream with extra-virgin olive oil & fleur de sel. Wow. wow. wow. So delicious. Thanks Rachel!
Before leaving, I was able to say a quick hello to the owner, Ann and snap her photo with Rachel. What a great evening. It was so great to hang out with Cathy and simultaneously catch up and get to know her better. She rocks and I can't wait to see where her job search takes her!
I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
