Drinks are on the house

Back in June 2008, I wrote about Pino, a tiny restaurant and bar near our house with a very innovative menu. I'm happy to say that it's still open and has actually been featured in a local TV show, which I hope means that they'll get even more customers so they'll continue operating. After watching another play last week, my husband and I decided to stop by for a beer and some bar chow (their Tempura Oyster Pearls are yummy!). We sat outside since it wasn't too hot and humid. Looks like humans aren't the only creatures who use Pino as their watering hole.

That's a bit of an odd, but cute cat shot.

THAT is a brilliant shot, Hilda. Perhaps the bar could use it on their menu/flyers.

Saretta said...

You do go to a lot of plays, don't you? Lucky girl!

One doesn't get a shot like that everyday!

R and J said...

The cat is like flowing, like no bones...
As I have a cat, usually the best moments are when you have no camera. You were lucky one.

Pam said...

Hilda, It looks like the tail end of that watering hole:) I hope you and your husband had a nice and relaxing dinner. 'Fantastic and Award Winning photo' Bottoms Up...

Kim said...

Hilda, the shot was slowly loading so I didn't see the tail at first and it took awhile to get it that it is a ginger kitty. Wonderfully seen!
Your description of the chow made me hungry. Time to go cook dinner!

Abe Lincoln said...

That is a cute rear end if I ever saw one. And I like that he is drinking from the same water the bamboo is growing in. I guess it is bamboo. I want to plant some smaller, clumping bamboo this summer. Wish me luck in getting my girls to dig the holes for me.

Thanks for your visits and comments, Hilda.

Lovely shot, Hilda! My daughter asks kindly if she can print it and hang it on her board! She loves cats! Ciao. A.

Hilda said...

Antonella:
But of course she can! Please tell me if you need a higher resolution image and I can email it to you.

Haha! My cat does the same thing with a small fountain we have in the living room.
