Filled Up and Planned Out

K and I had a fantastic weekend together!  On Friday I left work early and we hit up happy hour at my favorite bar in town, Anvil Bar and Refuge where I tried 2 of their cocktails: the Elberta and a Pimm's Cup.  Both actually were made with Pimm's Liqueur, which makes me think I need to be investing in another bar staple for my home... It was a still a bit early when we left Anvil to eat dinner yet, so we meandered into some antique shops and wound up at another of my favorite places, Cafe Brasil, where I sipped on some delicious Maine Root Beer.  We were walking distance from a bunch of restaurants I've been wanting to try so we headed over that way on foot and wound up eating some tasty Tex Mex at El Real.  The food was good, but it was still just kind of standard Tex Mex.  And for desert we moseyed on over to Little Bigs where they have the best butterscotch milkshakes.  I don't even like butterscotch, but I like these!  I've heard their food is good too, so maybe I should try that sometime soon too...
We spent the rest of the weekend chilling by the pool, eating some delicious smoked meats at my friends B and H's house, touring JSC, and actually getting down to planning our Thailand trip!  We think we've managed to work out an incredible schedule that includes a seven day tour of Cambodia, both a boat and a night time bike tour of Bangkok, and (our favorite) the Yi Peng and Loi Krathong lantern festivals in Chiang Mai!  I can't wait!!!
