Friday afternoon

Arrived at the Omni and was delighted to be offered champagne and strawberries in the lobby.  Why, yes, of course, I would love some.  How very civilized.

Just what we needed to fortify us for a walk down the mall in search of lunch.  

It was late, so we opted for a very light, and somewhat un-remarkable lunch, but that's okay because we knew what we really wanted was Splendora's gelato.  I ordered a small, but beware the vanity sizing.  The small is big enough that you can get two flavors-not that I'm complaining.  Choclolate hazelnut and salted caramel.

In search of a little coffee shop and bakery for tomorrow morning, we happened on Cappellini's Bakery

Not the answer to my coffee quest, but I did buy just one tiny chocolate cupcake.  

Here we are -  a coffee shop and bakery - Java Java.  Great coffee and a lovely assortment of pastries.

We wandered a bit more through the shops on the mall.  Stopped in at the used book store, the very chic   decorating store that specializes in all kinds of things I don't need at all, but are so elegantly displayed you simply must have them.  Like this impossibly charming picnic setting.  The table cloth looks as if it's made of stones, and you feel as though you might have a few of the wee folk joining you at any moment.

Then it was back to the lovely Omni for cocktails and dinner.
