Enjoy Your Long Weekend!

Last night S and I finished up our Houston Restaurant Weeks adventures with a trip to The Oceanaire with some friends.  Food was tasty (and a great deal, some of the entrees alone cost more than the $35 restaurant weeks deal!) and the company was fantastic.  After dinner we weren't quite ready for the night to end so we headed a bit further down the street to get some prohibition era cocktails at the Galleria.  In true speakeasy fashion, they had a "hidden" doorway behind a faux wall.  It wasn't the fact that the doorway was hidden that tickled my fancy though, it was the text that graced the wall that had me in stitches (see above).  I'm obsessed!

As for the upcoming weekend, S and I are planning to picnic tonight while we see a touring Chinese acrobat troupe at Miller's Outdoor Theater.  Tomorrow is a "get stuff done" day, which for S involves working on his car and for me will entail a trip to Canino Market and Revival Market before cooking up a storm.  I'm SO excited to make this squash blossom soup again, and I'm planning to try some new pickle recipes!  Sunday is a fun day - brunch somewhere followed by trips to places we've been wanting to go, but haven't had time for.  And Monday is a home improvement day - we're hoping to finally get the movie room at S's house to a functional state.  And best of all - we're going to sleep in - every day for 3 days!!!!

Do you have any fun plans for the long weekend? Some travelling maybe?  We would have traveled somewhere, but I'm on call for work all weekend...
