I’m an only child. Growing up, I had to entertain myself. In retrospect, this helped me be able to think creatively, be independent and learn how to lead conversation to meet new people. All these things I am thankful for.
While at Wink & Nod with a dear friend from BC, we took things into our own hands and change the way we were to experience our dinner. This South End spot’s menu ends with a quote by Massachusetts politician Martin Lomasey:
Never write if you can speak;
Never speak if you can nod;
Never nod if you can wink.
Inspired by the close to the menu, we decided we would eat and analyze the dish and then put our thoughts and feelings into a haiku. Given his background in English and Literature, he was completely up for it.
Down the stairs we went
With a wink, a nod, a step,
Who knows what the night will bring.
With Jennifer + Halle,
A ménage à trois.
Then was foie gras duck meatballs,
A good night twinkie.
Man that’s delicious,
Fresh twinkie on wooden plate,
It melts in your mouth.
What have you done differently to make your dinners more creative?
