My humans are getting married

catadambannerOne of my best friends will soon be tying the knot with her Mr. Right. As a bridesmaid, there’s always this tiny fear that your wonderful, level minded friend will somehow turn into a god awful bride-zilla. Thankfully, she’s been very calm and collected… though even if she weren’t, I definitely know better than to say otherwise.

So far, my only bridesmaid duty has been to help her take some engagement photos for her “save the date” invitations. Here’s a sneak peek of some of the shots from the very cold and cloudy day in Toronto. catpincatring
As adverse to marriage as I am, I’d have a hard time saying ‘no’ to a ring like that!

The Sapphire Room

I finally popped by the Sapphire Room in downtown Peterborough and was quite impressed with their atmosphere and decor. Think 50’s glam with a bit of naughty and jazz mixed in. It was fairly quiet on a Thursday night but I’ve heard that Sundays are quite poppin’ with their trivia nights.



I loved the soft glow of the lights and the wall of framed album covers. Such a great decorating idea.


Though I’m more of a beer, or gin and tonic kind of girl, sometimes I like to class it up with martinis.


Their mile long drink list includes some of the more traditional drinks as well as a bunch of their own specialties.


I was pleasantly surprised by their food menu as they had some unique dishes for reasonable prices. I opted for “Wrapped in Bacon” which was Rumaki, water chestnuts, wrapped in bacon with a chipotle whiskey sauce. The saltiness of the bacon was an interesting mix with the cold water chestnuts. It’s different and had some mixed reviews, although I’d probably order it again. I also ordered the “Cheesy Goodness” which was artichoke, hot pepper vodka cheddar fondue with corn chips. It was a great sharing dish and at 2 items for $12 , you can’t really go wrong. IMG_0232

If I wasn’t leaving Peterborough in a few weeks, I’d definitely come back for a girl’s night or for after dinner drinks.
