The Bartender is doing all fun things in the next few days (seeing dearest friends! Family! Steaks! Wave Hill! Cloisters! More fun things!) and spirits are high. Also The Bartender’s mom made the cookies pictured above (all made by her including the apricot and sour cherry jam) and The Bartender ate them ALL. I wish you the happiest of long weekends, dear Toasties. Open thread!
