Sunday Night Out

in All Posts

As I wrote earlier, I worked all morning so that I could go out tonight… party like it’s Friday!  🙂


Before leaving, I had Pumpkin Yogurt and granola.  I’m sure you can visualize since I eat it every day!  Then, I met Meghann at Orlando Brewing Company for Brews and Barks night.



Meghann and I split this taster, and then I got another pint.


Liquid courage = singing with the band.


James had a really good time!  It was neat to be able to bring my dog to the bar.  He sat in the stool next to me the entire time and was very well-behaved.  He even got a piece of birthday cake (he turned 4 on Friday) – I had a few bites, too!


Happy Birthday, James!  🙂


Then, my sister and brother-in-law came over and we all decided to go out.



We also stopped at the wine bar.  I ordered the Ladies’ Choice of wine.


And the table split a bunch of eats, like:


Toast with hummus, sun dried tomato spread, and olives:


And a veggie flatbread:


And cheese, crackers, and grapes.


I had a little of everything. The Lake Eola Wine Company is the best! Great wine and great food.


And now…. bed is calling name!  Good night.

    How fun! I wonder if my dog would behave at the bar…probably not! That flat bread looks amazing!

  • The Healthy Hostess January 18, 2010, 12:58 am

    Great looking snacks! I would love to recreate the hummus toast plate and the veggie flatbread! Love wine bars!

    What type of cake can you and James the puppy both eat?

    • Caitlin January 18, 2010, 9:56 am

    How fun! Cute that you can take your dogs!

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg January 18, 2010, 7:31 am

    Looks just as fun on your blog as it did on Meghann’s 🙂

    I am definitely pro “dogs at bars and restaurants.” It’s one of the things I like most about Europe!

  • Danielle January 18, 2010, 7:47 am

    Looks like you had a great time. That’s so neat that they have a night where you can take the pups to the brewery.

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is January 18, 2010, 7:52 am

    Brews and Barks night sounds so fun. I have never heard of such a thing!

  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) January 18, 2010, 7:52 am

    Aww…I love that you were able to bring the pooch along for a fun night out. 😀 He definitely looks like he’s right at home there with the birthday cute. Too cute! :mrgreen:

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) January 18, 2010, 8:02 am

    That’s awesome you could bring James to the bar with you! Such a well behaved dog:) Love that he got birthday cake.
    Sounds like a fun night!

  • Jenna January 18, 2010, 8:12 am

    Fab eats!!

  • katherine January 18, 2010, 8:23 am

    So great that you could bring James to the bar with you. I wish I could do that here in NYC!

  • Lee January 18, 2010, 8:30 am

    Looks like a lot of fun. I don’t think my dog would be able to control himself in a big group of people like that. He likes to say hello to everyone. And by say hello, I mean jump on and give a hug.

  • lauren @ Eater not a runner January 18, 2010, 8:42 am

    Looks like so much fun! Especially the beer flight 😉

  • Matt January 18, 2010, 9:04 am

    That is neat you can bring your dog to the bar. My dog would go NUTS there though!

  • Diana (Mymarblerye) January 18, 2010, 9:12 am

    Man, you are a party animal on Sundays! Looks like you had a great time though! Nice heels. 🙂

  • Casey @Spicy&Sweet January 18, 2010, 9:16 am

    If my dog came to a bar, he would eat the tables! Glad James was so well-behaved…what a cutie. 🙂

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing January 18, 2010, 9:25 am

    Sounds like you had a well-deserved great time!! I could also never bring my dog to a bar or anywhere like that, she would go CRAZY wanting attention from everyone.

  • MLT January 18, 2010, 9:38 am

    You look like you are such a fun person to go out with!

    • Caitlin January 18, 2010, 9:56 am

      HAHA sometimes im a little TOO much fun!? come to fit blogging and we can all go out!

  • Christy January 18, 2010, 9:42 am

    What a pretty cheese & cracker plate! Yay for liquid courage 😉

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) January 18, 2010, 9:45 am

    I love the idea of animals at happy hour!

  • Darci January 18, 2010, 9:46 am

    Looks like a fun night w/friends!! And how awesome to get to take the pups along!! 🙂

  • Haleigh January 18, 2010, 10:05 am

    What a fun night out with friends and puppies!

    Cheese, crackers and grapes is one of my favorite appetizers to make for guests.. it’s simple, delicious and very difficult to burn it in the oven, haha 😉

  • Amber K January 18, 2010, 10:17 am

    Wow, I’ve never seen a place where you can get that kind of spread! Amazing looking food. =)

  • Veronica January 18, 2010, 10:19 am

    That looks so fun! I love that you can bring the pups!

  • Beth @ DiningAndDishing January 18, 2010, 10:20 am

    How fun is that..bringing your dog with you to a bar! I Love it. The food looked delicious!
    Happy b-day to your doggy-son 🙂
    Hope the Tri-training is going well.

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) January 18, 2010, 11:00 am

    Those pics with James at the bar are so funny!

  • Jess (What's Normal, Anyways?) January 18, 2010, 12:55 pm

    Now that is MY idea of a Sunday! I LOVE both the Orlando Brewing Co and Eola Wine Bar! Crazy to think you ran a Marathon the week before!

  • Angela (The Lady Loves to Eat) January 18, 2010, 1:33 pm

    Looks like you had lots of fun! James was totally eyeing that beer in the 2nd picture haha!

  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie January 18, 2010, 2:07 pm

    I love playing pool with friends. It’s a great way to interact and bond.

  • amanda@thegrainsofparadise January 18, 2010, 3:45 pm
