monday again, already? sigh. at least the weekend ended like this:
speaking of the north end, this week they were filming a new johnny depp movie, black mass, right down the street from me!
was super cool to see all the film crews (and spy a few stars!) on my walk home from work. not as cool- filming went late into the night. i didn’t hear it at first, but my friend brittany who lives across the street texted me asking if i heard gun shots. i didn’t think they’d still be filming so texted her it was probably just someone throwing away trash in a dumpster loudly or something. then it happened again… and again. scary! wish they had posted notices or something. either way- will be cool to see the movie when it comes out!
late night filming
my weekend started out at the merchant, a new restaurant/bar downtown. the space itself is really neat- unfortunately, none of my pictures really captured the room well.

initial thoughts on the merchant: good drink list. they had a nice selection of beers and the wines by the glass were reasonably priced. one thing i wasn’t a fan of, the staff was not exactly the friendliest. we had a group of about 20-25 people (20-25 people who like to drink, might i add) and they were a wee bit rude about accommodating us. i also got carded three separate times (which seemed a bit unnecessary….) it could have just been an off night, so not writing this place off just yet! but probably will only go back with a smaller group next time.
lauren had met me and my coworkers out and after a few drinks we ended up heading out to meet up with some of her friends.
this is the new seersucker dress i bought the other day! it’s only been a week since memorial day and I’ve already worn it twice. have a feeling this one is going to end up being a go to. thanks j.simps!
something else new (to me) that i love- these wholly guacamole spicy single serve cups.
these things def have a kick (fair warning) and it’s the perfect portion to add to a sandwich or put on toast
or eat with a spoon.
off to bed- hope you all had a nice weekend as well and were able to enjoy the sunshine. here’s hoping the sun sticks around!
