A Schwanky Dinner & A Fit Bit

Double Zero Napoletana - Atlanta, GA

First up I went to a really cool place last night with two of my best college girlfriends to celebrate our joint birthdays. We are all born with in 2 weeks of each other and we get together annually to celebrate. Like an ass I did not get a pic of all 3 of us but I did get o few of the delicious awesomeness that we ate and drank. First I dove head first into a good "Old Fashioned" as I have been in a very retro mood lately in my quest to bring back the cocktail hour every day.... Mmmmm a muddling of sugar and bitters with a good whiskey and some citrus and of course cherries. 

Next up we just shared some small plates... Crispy Pork Belly Risotto with a Slow Poached Egg and Beef Cheek Ravioli (yes it's from the cheek of the cow, my friend Erin did not get that from the name)  with a Wild Mushroom something or other and Goat Cheese Crema... More heaven on a plate...

We also had a pizza margherita that did not make it to the pictures and then dessert... bamboloni ...basically donuts... who doesn't love a donut. Especially with a shot of Limoncello.

We had a great time and a nice end to a slightly annoying day

We also talked alot about this...  the Fit Bit

It's an interactive pedometer that tracks you steps (duh), distance, and calories burned – and syncs those stats to your computer and smartphones. You can set goals, challenge friends, earn badges... it's basically like social networking meets fitness a little bit. It even works with my fitness pal. 

Does anyone have one? How do you like it? My girlfriend is a breast cancer survivor and she is pretty into staying healthy plus her company is offering huge incentives and savings on health insurance for participating in this trackable program. The employees are actually challenging each other to see who can go 10,000 steps every day... harder than you think if you have a desk job. She says it has been an eye opener to some at how little they actually move on a daily basis. Thinking about getting one.  Need some reviews!!!
