Last week, most of the AOM girls met up at Bricco in Downtown Akron for a much needed girls night out. It was the first time that I’ve been there and won’t be the last. Great atmosphere and fantastic food!
Believe it or not, the AOM bloggers haven’t been life long friends, with the exception of myself and Veronica who have been friends for the past dozen years. We have been through a LOT together over the years, supporting each other all along the way. I thank God for our friendship.
The rest of us have only had occasion to get together a few other times. Although we all are very different in our interests, we all just “click”. We had a fun, relaxing evening talking about everything from gifts we are buying this year to foster dog-parenting to my confessions on how we left the Christmas lights on the tree when we moved from our previous home. (We packed the trees that year too! It was just too cold with 2 feet of snow when we moved so we left ’em for the new owners to take down in the Spring.)
Dinner was amazing at Bricco. I had a shrimp pasta, Veronica had huge crab cakes, Jo had one of their famous pizza, and Beth had a ravioli dish. I plan on bringing my hubby Matt here for our next date night, it was so good!
So, when the check came, I was able to use my Serve card to pay for it. Serve is a new way to send, receive, and buy products online and in the “real world”. Serve is part of American Express, so you know that it is save and secure.
Basically, Serve is a new way to transfer money between friends and anyone else. When the bill comes, you can pick it up and have your your friends use their smart phones to transfer money instantly back to your Serve account. You’ll never have that awkwardness of owing a friend money again!
All of us AOM bloggers are signed up with Serve. It is easy and free to sign up. And you even get $10 for signing up for Serve! You can even get up to $50 for referring your friends.
We had a very fun evening out until we realized the time and had to head home to make sure our kids were in bed for school the next day. My husband rocked and had them already sleeping when I got home! 🙂 We had a fun evening trying out a new restaurant, catching up, and trying out how technology and Serve makes splitting the check easy – the modern way.
