Friday we ended up meeting for dinner at a sushi place about ten minutes up the road. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that they were playing an outdoor movie in the lawn on the big screen. and we were luckily able to snatch up the last patio seat and watch it while we ate!
They were playing Ghostbusters, one of my all time favorites! Such a fun night and the weather was absolutely perfect...still a comfortable 65 at night.
Saturday we just did so much I can barely even remember it! I do know it included food, food. oh. and did I mention that it included food?
First up we stop at a Raleigh Landmark which has been featured on multiple food and travel network shows. The Roast Grill (hot wieners) about 8 people can fit in there at once and they only help a few people at a time. No fuss. and I loved every second of the experience. and watching Tony eat his hotdogs, cause...no.
and then we headed over to a new brewery in town. It is really cool and they have a pour your own beer wall. Was really neat. But what was even better was their hot, homemade pretzels dipped in their beer cheese. Oh, my. Word! I die!
Then we headed over a street festival, Cook Street Festival and this thing is no joke. I love how awesome it is, this is an actual neighborhood that throws this gig. None of them can even leave their houses all day. There was over 25 food trucks, 5 breweries, so many local coffee shops. Tons of local artists and shops selling their goods and amazing entertainment.
and there was food. In case you were worried.
Then we stopped by wine authority for Tony to grab some olive oil and some wine. I didn't have any because I am on day 19 of 30 days of no alcohol. Please Halloween get here quick;)
Then we came home and watched the Florida State-ND game. I didn't like the ending. blah.
and then yesterday we had our monthly supper club. This month our friends Cat & Josh hosted and I love it because he makes the most amazing Thai food. So good! Plus, they just finished their basement and it is ridiculous!
I made these mini cannolis for dessert. Chocolate with a dark chocolate and red wine mousse and a maple Bourbon with pecan. Recipes coming soon!
How was your weekend? Do anything fun? Or relaxing?
