As the Hus and I stepped out for dinner and drinks, my neighbor stopped us and remarked, “You guys are going out?! Good for you!”
I think that means we should get out more. Heh.
Luckily, we had grand plans at Soul Gatrolounge a swanky little bar with awesome music and delicious eats. If a gastropub is a bar with gourmet food, a gastrolounge is a club with gourmet food.
We actually met up with our former Realtor, Scott (who I HIGHLY recommend if you live in the area), and his girlfriend for dinner. See? Something good came out of our failed house hunt! A new friendship!
We started off with drinks. As the sweat drip-dropped down my back, all I could think about was a cool, refreshing, minty mojito.
Hello, summertime. My name is Caitlin. Nice to drink you.
Eats involved lots of small plates… like fried goat cheese bruschetta – OMG. So delicious.
Grape leaves stuffed with Mediterranean-inspired goodness:
And, for my entrée, a falafel. It was wonderful falafel. Sometimes, they just slap ingredients onto the pita, but you could tell each parsley leaf was added with care – very, very good.
And then I had another mojito, and now I can’t feel my face.
Don’t worry, I didn’t drive home. Keepin’ it responsible!
On that note – BED!
