Happy Friday! Today will be a very special date day and night for me. My brother, his wife, my husband, and I will be spending mid-afternoon and evening in swanky Palm Beach, Florida. We are having cocktails at The Breakers Hotel in the Ocean Bar, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Our friend’s grandmother still keeps a penthouse suite there for the winter. I would love to see her if she’s there. After that we have window seat dining at Bice’s, an excellent Italian restaurant on Worth Avenue. I’m so excited and looking forward to an exciting Friday. And the weather is sunny and perfect! Sorry I’m so behind in catching up with you. We’ve spent the last three days looking at boats, which I do not want to discuss. Will see you as time allows. Happy Friday!

Pah! I'm not jealous. You can keep your warm, sunny Palm Beach. I'm not jealous at all. Give me Blackpool on a winter's day when the wind strips a layer of skin off your face. Did I tell you I'm not jealous? Well I'm not. Not at all. No sir. No way. Not jealous!

Have a fun night, better than your expectations. If I remember correctly, you didn't want to discuss the apartment in New York either, that fell through. Maybe this will too.

Thank you! We did have a super time. I spoke to my brother and husband together and think I made good progress. My brother, especially, agreed with everything. We are going to rent a boat and all go for a ride together and think about the pros and cons some more. There’s no hurry.

I like your idea of choosing the window seat obviously overlooking the sea. We have a beach resort not so far away and whenever we go there that is the table we book.

I agree. We always try to book our favorite table or one with a great view. We had two fabulous tables today.

I love Palm Beach, especially the shopping. Our other sister in law grew up there. Her backyard was on Worth Avenue and knew Lily Pulitzer. Thank you.

@HazySue Yes, the shopping is awesome. It has all my favorite stores on one beautiful street! My husband is taking me back next week for a shopping trip. I need, want, and saw so many beautiful things.

If I do, it will have to be brief. She's a big talker. Actually, she is best friends with Barbara Walters. Thank you!

@sallypup Lol! My brother drove us in his Mercedes. We felt like trash, since everyone seemed to be driving Bentley convertibles.

I am reading your post, sitting here listening to the wind howl, and wondering what to eat as a snack. I am a tiny bit jealous.

Anne suggested (with some previous experience) that renting one while you are there might be practical, no fees while you are gone, etc.

I am sure you enjoyed your cocktail and your dinner. We went to Bice's years ago, I remember they have an excellent Tiramisù and a good seafood salad.

We did have a wonderful day and evening. My brother knows Bice from having eaten at their restaurants in Italy, New York, and Palm Beach before. The meal was very good and the service impeccable. How was your diner last night?
