To date, I have written and published 5,291 posts on Carrots ‘N’ Cake. Isn’t that nuts? Along with these blog posts, I’ve come up with 5,291 titles – some good and some, well, not so good. Usually, I have a title in mind when I’m writing a post, but, sometimes, I need to write the whole post before something comes to mind.
I came up with “Bar Hoppin” for today’s blog post title and kind of laughed to myself. I went to two bars on Friday night, which, I guess, technically, is bar hopping, but not like I used to do back in the day. I used to play this game call “Pub Golf” with my friends, where you drank a beer at NINE different bars – and your goal was to drink the beer in as few sips as possible, like strokes in golf. Oy. Apparently, my idea of “bar hopping” has changed quite a bit over the years. Haha! Anyway, let’s recap Friday!
Our morning started with the usual CrossFit + Coffee Shack combo. The workout was a spicy one – I used #75 pounds for the OHS and it really wasn’t that bad!
At Coffee Shack, I ordered a French Toast iced coffee, which I later added vanilla protein powder to. Delish!
Back at home, I took a quick shower and boogied over to the Capital One Cafe for a couple of meetings and a bunch of work. We hired a new coach for DTFN! 🙂
Later the night, Mal and I headed out for dinner at The Pour Yard, a cute place in Quincy (next to Cagney’s) that serves small plates and delicious drinks.
We sat outside on the patio and had such a wonderful time. I feel like the two of us haven’t hung out in ages! Ha! Well, we’ve seen plenty of each other this summer, but we’re usually with friends or Qman, so it was nice that it was just the two of us.
And then shared the spicy chicken lettuce wraps and duck tacos for dinner.
The chicken tacos were reallllly spicy, but the duck tacos were perfect – I actually wished we had gotten two orders of them!
Before we left The Pour Yard, we met our friends, Marisa and Jeff, there for a drink. Then, the four of us headed to our friend’s birthday party at Alba for more drinks and fun. It was quite the night of bar hoppin! 🙂
Back at home, I broke into a brand new box of Pumpkin Spice Cheerios from my friends at General Mills. For a second, I debated if it was too soon to open them, but their deliciousness won me over. They’re seriously one of my favorite cereals ever! 🙂
Question of the Day
When was the last time you went bar hopping?
Is it too soon for pumpkin?
I would normally say yes, but Pumpkin Spice Cheerios are SO GOOD!
