The Husband and I are intent on showing my brother-in-law, Nick, a good time this weekend. We REALLY want him to move to Charlotte when he graduates from UCF. Since he is younger and (obviously) way cooler than us, weâ€™re doing a bar crawl tonight to show him that Charlotte can â€“ in fact â€“ party!
The Husband was working this afternoon, so I took Nick and my mother-in-law to Cantina 1511. Everyone has told me to go to Cantina, and I can tell itâ€™s a good place!
I convinced my MIL to drink two double margaritas with me. It was probably the best idea Iâ€™ve had in a long time. 😉 One was orange-juice based and the second was blood-orange. They were both so good, but the blood orange one was sweeter (and lined with sugar).
We ordered a plate of veggie nachos to share! I ate this at about 4 PM, which totally ruined my dinner. Well, I guess the nachos WERE my dinner!
But it was so worth it because the nachos were diiiiivine.
Healthy eating tip: When eating apps like this, I usually take a portion off of the main plate and put it on a smaller plate so I can see what Iâ€™m really eating as I go. Otherwise, I end up stuffed. I forgot to do this and guess what? STUFFED! 🙂
After the bar, we took my MIL home for a nappie, and Nick and I (clearly, I was not the designated driver!) drove around the city so Nick could see some potential areas heâ€™d like to live if he did move here.
Then, we had the bright idea to go get serve-serve frozen yogurt (this was probably the margarita talking):
In my mix was peanut butter yogurt, PB cups, and Oreos.
I posted these lovely Operation Beautiful notes in the bathroom! I love them, especially the â€œBe Fearlessâ€ one.
And then, I came home and (predictably) took a two-hour nap! Thatâ€™s what an early happy hour will do to this girl.
However, now Iâ€™m rested and ready to go again! Weâ€™re going to check out some local bars that Iâ€™ve heard good things about.
Are you a bar or club kind of girl? Or do you prefer quieter weekend evening activities? You guys know I love a good dive bar!
