It’s 7:30PM on Saturday night. My husband is getting ready to go to Polo Bar. I should be doing the same. We had to call exactly one month ago to the day at 10:30am to make our reservation for this evening. (That’s how you score a table if you’re trying to) I have been salivating over eating the burger and Ralph Lauren’s personal favorite pigs in a blanket.
But unfortunately, mom duty calls. My son Ian has been home sick with the summer virus that’s going around since Wednesday night. We had expected him to be better by today, but he woke up this morning still with a fever. So we took him to the pediatrician who told us its highly contagious; canceled our sitter, as well as our after dinner drinks with college friends in from out of town which I was really looking forward to. Instead my husband invited his friend to take my place this evening at dinner. Sniff, sniff.
I ordered a burger and loaded baked potato carry out order from Hillstone. On the way, I picked up milk at the grocery store and a McDonald’s happy meal for my kids.
I sat down by myself to eat while reading a parenting publication. This is the life! I reminded myself I have a book to finish and am tired from being out late at Taylor Swift’s 1989 world tour last night. To make the best of the situation, I popped open a Moet mini.
I have always been a bubbly girl, preferring it to all other alcohol. Several years ago, I started picking up Moet’s limited edition bottles as gifts for hostesses or to serve at our parties. I am a sucker for anything limited edition. It fuels my “gotta have it” mentality, knowing that its not an item for mass consumption.
For the 5th year running, ButterflyCannon have designed the Limited Edition bottles for the Chandon Summer campaign. Playing up summer and Chandon’s American heritage, the Brut bottle is wrapped in iconic stripes and championing the classic colours: red, white and blue. As with the previous editions, a nautical theme runs throughout the campaign, the overlapping stripes evoke a sense of movement and overlapping materials; of sails blowing in the summer breeze.
Not only are these minis extra adorable, but they are perfect for times when you are drinking alone. How often do you want a glass of wine but don’t want to open a whole bottle for risk of wasting the rest?
Warning: my only complaint that is the three bottles I have opened in the past 24 hours have poured all over the place. Last night, I was willing to take blame, thinking maybe I shook them as I carried them to the car but it happened again tonight as the bottle was sitting still on the table.
As Mary Popping would sing, “A spoonful of honey (insert bubbly) makes the medicine go down.” Finger’s crossed, Ian’s fever has finally broken once and for all and my kids turn in for the night soon. I only have one more mini bottle in my wine cooler!
I will definitely be returning to Sherry Lehman’s to buy more first chance I get! And I am optimistic that Scott will make us another reservation at Polo Bar on his way out this evening. I only wish Despicable Me or Minions was available On Demand.
