It’s been a long week but at least the weather has been nice. I’ve spent a lot of time in the park, soaking in the sun. We also had a lovely dinner at Cafe Sabarsky in the Neue Galerie. The food is good, but the atmosphere is the real draw. Dining in a well appointed drawing room, with a huge urn of camellias blooming over the mantle and a sweet vase of primulas on the table, plus a sideboard filled with old fashioned delights such as plum cake, is a sure-fire way to beat the windy, damp nights of March.
I went to get a restorative chai latte yesterday afternoon and they were blasting The National. Several hours of Spotify later, I’ve found a few new favorite songs. Particularly Green Gloves, and the comparably quirky Wake Up Your Saints. It also reminded me of the great Q session they did last year. Rylan isn’t released anywhere I don’t think, but it’s a beauty.
