Saturday evening I met my AR friend, Carolyn, at a restaurant midway between the two of us for dinner. We had a great time at Hemingways on Wantagh Avenue in Wantagh. The service and food were fantastic, and the atmosphere was conducive to some great conversation.
Not only was this a chance for us to have dinner together, but Carolyn brought one of her clients along who is in the process of buying a house, and is eager to decorate it - putting her own stamp on her new home. It was a good opportunity to meet a prospective client in a little more relaxed situation.
I know that quite a few people have gotten business from blogging on Active Rain, and hopefully this meeting will have gotten me a new client. The best thing though is the friend I have made in Carolyn. I just love Carolyn! I feel so comfortable around her, and I'm sure part of that is from our back and forth in posts, as well as the times we do speak on the phone.
I snagged this pic of Carolyn getting ready to take a picture of the food.
The waitress was kind enough to take a picture of the three of us.
If you are on Long Island and looking for some place nice to have dinner (or any meal), consider visiting Hemingways. The service was top notch (thanks to Katie), the food was very good (with a nice variety to the menu), and we just loved the look of the place. You can check out directions, the menu and some background at their website at http://www.hemingwaysgrill.com/index.htm.
