Honey and I went a little cocolocomo and had dinner at The Distinctive Cork* on a week night. Our delightful son-in-law presented us with a gift certificate just before he and his family moved in with us back in May. (The addition of three people, two dogs and many, many possessions to our house seems like a thousand years ago. Feel free to relive those days via the Naperville Now archives, located on the right. Gripping stuff. But I digress.)

The food is quite tasty at The Distinctive Cork, they serve flights of wine (now we're talking) and they offer something called a Napertini. I thought the name was so cute, I'm reproducing it here for all you cocktail fanciers. However, I cannot quite recall the proportions, so just keep pouring until everything looks and tastes right. And if that takes several tries, I say, so be it.

I'm toying with the idea of changing the name of this blog to Napertini Now, though it sounds like an imperious, bang-on-the-bar call to action. And I'm way more polite than that.

*located in the shopping center at Gartner and Washington in Naperville. (And no, we weren't comped the meal in exchange for a fabulous write-up in Naperville Now. Wish I'd thought of it, however.)

Cocolocomo out at a resturant is the perfect thing to do mid-semaine.
