My day included many of the things that make me really happy: friends, dogs, cheese, cupcakes, and beer. (Yes, three out of five of them are food.) I have no complaints about today.
The Pony Bar has a rotating selection of twenty American craft beers on tap. Today, they featured a bunch of Ithaca beers, and all of their beers cost just $5.
The Pony Bar doesn’t offer table service, so Theodora and I ordered our lunches at the bar along with a couple of beers. We both ordered Post Road Pumpkin Ales, which were really good– medium-bodied and not too pumpkin-y. (Post Road isn’t my favorite pumpkin beer, but I still like it a lot.)
Theodora and I grabbed a table, chatted, and enjoyed our beers. Before I knew it, my first beer came and went, and we were ordering a second round.
A solid hour passed before I noticed that I never received the sandwich that I ordered, so I told the bartender. She was really apologetic, and a little while later, a very cheesy grilled cheese sandwich was delivered to me.
It was well worth the wait. Holy cheese!
Inside were grilled tomatoes… and more cheese.
After lunch, we headed back to Theodora’s apartment to discuss our plans for the evening.
Theodora got a Red Velvet cupcake, and I got a Yellow Daisy cupcake (yellow cake with vanilla frosting). We agreed that the frosting tasted amazing, but the cake was a tad dry. Even still, it tasted great and made me happy.
The plan for the rest of the evening is watching a movie and going to bed. I’m going to sleep like a baby.
