This post was actually supposed to go up a few hours ago – not quite sure what happened?! Ahh well…just a little delayed. But at least now I can say “Goooo JETS!”
Well, right now I’m most likely on my way back home from the Jets game (since I wrote this post this morning), so let’s hope that they actually did decent and it’s a good ride home. If not, well then you have permission to feel sorry for me. Haha.
So yesterday afternoon I got a text from my friend Mal asking if Jay and I were free to meet up for dinner at one of our favorite spots EVER, Brown’s. Jay was actually working most of the day so I wasn’t sure if we were going to be able to make it, but once I let him know that Brown’s was a possibility, he made sure to get back home in time. Yippee!!
Around 7:30, we headed down to Brown’s, put our name in for a table, and headed to the bar to grab a couple of beers while we waited for Brian and Mal. They didn’t have my favorite Cherry Raspberry on tap, but they DID have Pumpkin Ale baaaaaack.
This made me a very happy camper.
(Side note: I was thinking this morning as I was typing this, “Okay, wow. My readers all must thing I’m a total booze-face.” This week seemed to include quite a bit of alcohol, but I promise…I’m not always this bad. I do like me a few beverages now and then though, so I’m not apologizing.)
Shortly after we got our beers, our fantastic friends, Brian & Mal arrived, and about an hour later we got a table for dinner (Brown’s is ALWAYS hoppin’ on the weekends!).
We ended up ordering some potato skins to share amongst the table to start. I can usually go wither way with potato skins, so I had half of one to see how they tasted. They were definitely good. I probably would have gone back for more but I wanted to save room for my dinner.
And that dinner of choice was their Roasted Mediterranean sandwich, which came with eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, roasted red peppers, portabella mushrooms and provolone cheese on a Multi-Grain Ciabatta.
It also came with a roasted garlic aioli, which I ordered on the side and am so glad that I did…it was good, but WOW was it garlicky. Whew!
Hope everyone’s weekend is winding down nicely…did it fly by for anyone else, or is it just us? Sheesh!
