You know those evenings where you end up making last minute plans with no expectations other than to just spend time with a friend…only to have it turn out to be one of the best nights ever? Yeah, last night was one of those nights.
I ended up getting a call around 5:00 last night from my Sarah, asking if by any chance I was free to join her down at Rockin’ On The River. My only plans for the evening were to have been going to Jay’s softball game, but I’ve been to a bunch of those before, so I said sure!
Before heading out, I cooked up a quick dinner for Jay and I…
Leftover Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken from the freezer + Alexia sweet potato fries.
I ate, quickly changed out of my scrub clothes to try and look presentable, then Sarah and I were out for the evening.
So every Wednesday for Rockin’ On The River here in downtown Troy, there’s a band that plays (along the river, obviously) and last night’s band was ‘Bad Medicine’ a Tribute to Bon Jovi. Sarah is a HUGE fan of Bon Jovi, so she was super psyched to go watch and listen.
There was definitely quite a good crowd out last night, too.
I thought the band was really good and apparently, according to Sarah, this guy must have done some Jovi research. I guess he had all his regular moves down and everything. I’m really just a fan of the Jovi songs that make it on the radio so I didn’t know any better…but now Sarah has informed me that I *must* borrow all gazillion of his CD’s (and videos) so I can catch up.
After listening to the band play for a little while, we decided to walk over to grab a drink at Jose Malone’s. Sarah and I happened to know the bartender who was working last night, so we grabbed a couple seats at the bar and ordered a round of margaritas.
These margaritas were goooood, and now I totally see why they’re known for having some of the best around. Sarah and I continued to sit, chat, and sip, and before I knew it, we had another margarita…watermelon this time. And it was made with fresh watermelon puree. Loved it.
As we continued to sit and chat with Steve (the bartender), he suddenly asked us if we wanted some shots. Me? Shots? Ummm, no thanks…I’m a granny now, thankyouverymuch.
But he insisted that he’d make them “easy,” so me and my two-margarita mind said “suuuuuure, why not??!”
Steve didn’t lie. These weren’t strong at all. More like pineapple upside-down cake. And delicious at that.
Check out that apparition in the photo above…do you guys think Sarah and I had something else hanging with us last night?
Sarah and I continued to sit and hang out a bit longer as we waited for our rides to arrive, so Steve brought us out some chips and salsa to snack on.
That salsa? Best stuff ever. There was barely any spice to it at all (totally my style) and I honestly could have eaten it with a spoon.
Eventually, our rides made it.
Once they stopped over from their softball game, we hung out for a bit there, but then Jose’s was getting ready to shut down for the evening, so we left and headed over to my favorite downtown Troy spot. We hung out there until last call and then finally made our way back home.
So I’d say, for having no expectations for the evening but winding up staying out late enough for last call at two different bars? Definitely a great, great night…although I’ve felt better.
Yeah. So this happened this morning…
Such a klutz sometimes, I’ll tell ya.
Once I got that mess all cleaned up, I was able to sit down to my then semi-cold breakfast and half glass of iced coffee.
Breakfast today was a 1 egg + 2 egg white scramble made with lots of fresh spinach and tomatoes.
And on the side there were some more veggies, of the zucchini variety of course, topped with peanut butter.
Despite the delay, breakfast was still a delicious one.
Now it’s time for me to get scootin’…have a great Thursday, everyone!
