I recently returned to Philly from a sojourn in the south for the fourth. But prior to my Sunday departure a week and some days ago, I had a few plans for Saturday. These plans included running errands in New Jersey, but first LB and I scheduled a little brunch meet-up at Silk City Diner Bar & Lounge. Though I had ever-so-briefly experienced the night-time bar scene at Silk City some months previous, brunch was an unknown for me. It was a hotter than hell day (aren't they all) but we chose to sit outside nonetheless (I think this may have been more my doing than LB's). I perused their cocktail list and went with the Jaded Ruby: a concoction of Absolut Ruby Red, fresh lime and grapefruit juice with a sugar rim. Enjoyable, not too tart. But not cloyingly sweet either.
