Beaver's afterwards (it looks like a dive, but they have a really great food and cocktail menu!), and then headed back to S's so I could prepare food for a cook out with S's fam that night.
On Friday I, as stated above, worked followed by some tasty Tex-Mex for lunch (K had to get her fill while she was in town!). S and I headed to another friend's house that evening for our very first whiskey tasting! R gathered 13 bottles from the many of his whiskey collection, explained the differences to us, let us taste and smell them all and then we compared for differences. Were they smooth, did they have vanilla undertones, what is a "single malt" and is it really better, etc. It was a lot of fun!
Dixit - we had a blast!
Saturday we met up with one of K's friends for lunch at Americas, a classy Latin American restaurant in River Oaks. The interior was AWESOME (designed by a Chicago architect, or course!), the food was excellent and the 88 cent mojitos (their lunch special) were the cherry on top. We chilled at home for a bit then headed over to my friend R's house for our foodie cookout spectacular. Our bellies were very full of good food on Saturday...
Sunday was a chill day. We slept in, I made an easy brunch, K left to go home (boo), we ran some errands, and even found time for a mid-day nap. It was a perfect relaxing end to an awesome long weekend.
