A Blogger Dinner with Circle
Just before the holidays, I went to a blogger dinner at Townsman with the folks from Circle, a new app that makes sharing money and splitting checks super easy. Surprisingly it was my first time at Townsman, and I was really excited to try it out after hearing great reviews.
As I arrived at the restaurant, our group was seated at a high top table in the bar area. I love sitting by the bar; there’s always a laid-back energy and it’s something that we can’t do as easily when Milo is with us. It is so nice to connect with other bloggers, especially when it is at small dinners like this one. I really appreciate how Circle kept the dinner intimate and allowed for us to really talk with one another (it can be overwhelming when there’s a huge crowd!).
Dinner was a set menu with several warm options — I was grateful since it was a freezing night. I ended up ordering the minestrone soup, which I really enjoyed, and a butternut squash risotto dish for my entree. Everything was yummy, including the pecan chocolate tart for dessert.
I was also really impressed with the cocktail offering. Lots of interesting combinations! I was craving ginger, so I went for a classic Moscow mule.
At the end of the meal, our group was able to split the check seamlessly by using Circle. Instead of one person paying and having everyone pay that person back, Circle makes it easy to split the bill. Other advantages of using Circle are that there are no fees for sending money internationally, instant cash out with no fees, and all deposits held in Circle are FDIC insured up to $250k. Although I think my favorite thing about the app in addition to ease of use is how easy it is to send gifs!
Thanks so much for including me in this wonderful dinner, Circle!
