Book Review: Modern Lovers by Emma Straub

 

Emma Straub, the New York Times Best Selling author of the Vacationers, has done it again with her latest  title, Modern Lovers.

This New York Times Bestseller is set in a neighborhood just outside NYC,  introducing us to four friends who had played together in a fairly successful rock band during college.  Now in their seemingly late forties, we learn how their life paths have formed and perhaps disappointed several of them.

At the same time, we meet some of their children who are just about to encounter these idyllic times of youth with mixed feelings of hope and confusion.

Modern Lovers on the surface is about young love and love that has matured over time.  But at its core it’s about finding out who you really are in life and staying true to your dreams (if you are lucky enough to know what they are).

Available at Amazon and other booksellers:

 

 

 

Thai Coconut Margarita

 

This one came from an awesome restaurant we went to in Pittsburgh called täkō!  Their Thai Coconut margarita had Espolon Blanco, Coconut Milk, & Makrut Lime.  Here’s our take on the Thai Coconut Margarita – Thai it, you’ll like it! (oh c’mon, I had to!)

Thai Coconut Margarita:

  • 1-2 oz blanco tequila
  • 1-2 oz coconut milk or cream
  • Squeeze of fresh lime
  • Pour over ice, shake and serve

    If you are in or around the Pittsburgh area, check outtäkō.  Their queso fundido and tacos were amazing!  We were fortunate enough to walk in, but reservations are highly recommended.
