Childhood best friend date. I hadn’t seen her in 10 years and spent most of our lunch grilling her about working in Kiev, Kabul, and a half dozen other ‘stans. She speaks 5 languages and I’m too impressed to feel the full weight of my own unimpressiveness.

What I wanted: a burger from Rootstock

What I have: no mayo tuna salad with red cabbage, celery, red onion and a little Dijon. Patio tomatoes with part skim mozzarella and balsamic on the side.

It’s really good. I still want that burger though.
