Brunch...probably the best meal of the day

This weekend was rainy and cold, so we decided to spend most of it indoors lounging around.  On Saturday, we got up late and went to brunch at Radost FX, a restaurant and lounge by day and a nightclub in the basement in the evenings.  
Although it took over 2 hours for that one meal, it was totally worth it and such a relaxing morning just enjoying some wonderful food.  I had the Elvis Lives! (a toasted bagel with crunchy peanut butter, bananas, and honey served with a gigantic fruit salad on the side).  Probably one of the best meals I've had here (I know it wasn't traditional Czech, but it was delicious).  
Most of the restaurants and clubs around here have such great personalities and are each so unique.  I loved just being in the restaurant--the atmosphere and decor was funky yet elegant--just a fun place to be.
Here are just a few photos of Radost FX.  I'm sure we'll be going back there soon.  Their dinner menu looked pretty enticing as well...
Well, class has officially started.  We went to studio today and have about 5 assignments due Thursday.  Yikes!  We'll have 4 projects over the semester.  The first is a logotype design for ourselves as a designer, the second is to translate that logotype into a 3D sculpture, the third is to design a piece of jewelry for a client of our choice, and the fourth and major project is to design a contemporary chair for a historical building in Prague (we get to choose from 4 spaces they have assigned).  So, this week we have to visit all 4 of the buildings and sketch inspiration for our piece of furniture.  It is so amazing to be able to interact with the local historical architecture to serve as inspiration for our designs.  The 4 spaces all have different architectural styles: Baroque, Gothic, Romanesque, and Art Nouveau, so we'll get to pick a style that we like in order to design something contemporary with great respect to the historical style.  We'll start visiting the sites tomorrow...I'm glad we'll finally be seeing a few more sites around Prague!

Considering the weather reports we've heard, sounds like staying in Prague was a good choice for the weekend, with the added bonus of a unique sounding restaurant. Have fun with your classes and all of the things you're seeing and the exposure you're getting. love, Aunt Norma
