Date night with Casie

Last night I went to the Hotmail & Cocktails event as Casie‘s date.  It in the Distillery District and it looked so magical at night with the big Christmas tree and lights.  It’s the first I’d really thought about Christmas this year and I’m really looking forward to it.

The event was at Stirling, which I’d never been to and it was a pretty nice space.  The open bar was definitely a hit and they served us sweet potato fries, asian style vegetables & noodles and sliders.  And there was an amazing dessert tray which we conveniently sat beside.  Sooo good.  Hotmail seems to be pulling out some interesting new features – check out the #HMCocktails Twitter for all the details.  I’m a die hard Gmail user and I’m not sure I’d ever go back to Hotmail but they have definitely been paying attention to what their email users are saying.  Less spam, larger & easier attachments, better previews in mail and a Sweep function.

After the presentation we walked over to Betty’s for drinks and I got to meet Andy the iPad.  He’s the first iPad I’ve ever seen and I’m going to have to play around with one more before I really want one.

Casie I <3 you so much.  Thanks for taking me out on a date and holding hands across the table :) It was so great to hang out, have some girl time and catch up.
