Yesterday, I met my mother for a lunch date at Ambition Cafe on Jay St. in downtown Schenectady. She had an awesome deal from Groupon for $10 off, but I never need an excuse to go to Ambition Cafe! The ambiance is fantastic — adorable booths, eclectic decor, friendly servers — and the food is just delicious. We poured over the menu for quite some time, but I ultimately went with a cup of their creamy tomato soup (the special for the day) and half of a build-your-own sandwich (wheat bread, turkey, cheddar cheese, horseradish dijon mustard, lettuce, tomato, cucumber — YUM). It was wonderful catching up with my mommy (who I don’t see as often as I had thought I would, considering I’m now 10 minutes from home), and of course our server convinced us to indulge in a huge chocolate-raspberry cupcake for dessert. Even though my stomach is still full, I cannot wait to go back!
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
