The Captains And The #LadiesWhoLunch Trend

Last year I was presented with a unique question:  What do I do with my best drinking buddy when he decides to go sober?  It was a question I had to answer when man DJ gave up booze in last fall.  My eventual answer to the hanging out question was “I dunno, you wanna go grab lunch?”  It seemed like as good an idea as any, especially since DJ moved to Clayton by my office.  So we started going to lunch every Friday to some of the numerous great restaurants around Clayton and University City.

My sister started calling us Ladies Who Lunch.  Here is her definition, via the Facebook comment she originally left:

I don’t know…..going to posh Clayton eateries during M-F lunch hours, ordering foodie entrees and taking pictures of each other….Survey says- Ladies who lunch. Love it.”

I thought it was funny and a little too spot on, so I looked up the hastag and our borrowed new trend was born.  Since October DJ and I have been all over this little area.  We checked out some fancy places in Clayton like Rearn Thai

The first couple of months were a blast and I see this trend picking up steam in 2015.   Check back tomorrow for a new restaurant and a new member!
