Happy Birthday, Aspen Marketplace! And Merry Christmas to the rest of us, because tomorrow and Saturday, Hoboken's gourmet market is taking 20% off your entire order to celebrate the occasion. This is so much better than going to your friend's big birthday dinner and shelling out 200 dollars for chicken parm and three glasses of house wine.
Not to give too much away, but I will probably buy six avocados, half a rotisserie chicken, a jar of fancy peanut butter, a wedge of fancy cheese, some olives, four or five limes, and two crab cakes. Maybe even a regular cake, too, because Aspen Marketplace has that whole bakery section, and if not me, who? If not now, when? Also, a loaf of the rosemary bread.
I’m sick and tired of having to eke my way through life. Aspen it is. See you all there.
