I really, really love walking. It is so refreshing! Much easier to do than biking – and much warmer too. Larbs let me borrow her big ole down coat tonight (knee-length with a hood) and I wasn’t the slightest bit cold. I’m telling you, my philosophy that Southerners are actually spend more time cold because we don’t know how to dress for cold stands true!
We dined tonight at The Gallowsin the South End, a new place Larbs + Matt had never been too. We were lured by the menu and the hip atmosphere.
Couldn’t wait for a glass of red!
Heh heh – Larbs blogging!
We started the night with a cheese platter of bites. Loved one of the cheeses, loved the duo of compotes – one with fig!!
I feasted on an arugula salad with smoked cheddar, pears and roasted squash!! [Although my squash was missing and I had to request it. I came to the restaurant FOR the squash so I felt I shouldn’t go without!]
For my main course I ordered soup – Lentil, Kale, Cabbage and Pork Belly. I was hoping for a full bowl, but honestly with all the tastes from the table, this was plenty enough.
Matt shared his dumpling and side of root veggies!
After dinner we put on all of our winter gear and headed over to The Beehive , a local bar M+L like. The place was hopping…er…buzzing!
We ordered a few Harpoon Munich Darks and called it a festive night.
Did I say how refreshing the walk home was! I think I was just glad to not be biking!
