After more work, a 30 minute walk to the grocery store and back for veggie + hummus platter ingredients, and getting dressed, we set out for our evening excursion.
First stop: the running store. I came home with the Asiacs. The guy was NOT happy that I ran on dirt with my shoes 🙁 Hopefully all of my nerves survive this pair!
After our grocery store walk, I was starving and had an ota.bar in the car up to tide me until dinner. PB + Banana were delish!
We arrived as Las Ramblas 30 minutes too early and decided to get a drink at the bar (a walk was debated but we were walked out and drinks were preferred)
This is my new favorite Charlotte restaurant!!!!!! Awesome menu, cool decor good service!
I ordered a glass of the Atteca Zin, which I’ve had before and loved. My first glass was a bit on the old side and while I hate to do it, I told the bartender and asked for a fresh glass. She was happy to open a new bottled and comped our drinks, so we were totally impressed!
The fresh glass rocked 😉
Matt, of course, got a brew.
The Sweetwater from ATL
Then Larbs and her friends arrived!
More wine was served
I ordered the Spinach + Arugula salad with Fried Goat Cheese to start. The salad was pretty small for eight whole dollars, but at least the goat cheese was awesome.
Matt and I shared a pizza for our main course, which was also small, but what we were expecting. It had smoked salmon, chorizo, olives, and cheese, among other delights. And it was delicious.
I had another splash of wine, which put me from tipsy to drunk in 5 minutes! GAH I can’t handle more than a large glass anymore!!! 1.5 glasses is my demise.
We were planning to meet our friends at the Annual Greek Festival, but I discovered that Matt has to get up in 6 hours for work, so I said we should just go home.
I’m pretty tired too. ‘Twas a long day! Nighty night!
