Happy Hour at Abby Park

Posted Apr 03 2010 5:45am

Yesterday’s weather was absolutely AMAZING! I still can’t get over it. It put me in such a fantastic mood all day long. :-D It’s funny how weather can do that, isn’t it?

In the late afternoon, Mal and I decided to have an impromptu date night and go out to dinner. We walked to the restaurant so we could continue to enjoy the wonderful weather.

On our walk, we encountered so many signs of spring . It’s almost here!!! :mrgreen:

Mal and I took our time walking, chatting, enjoying the sunshine, and, of course, snapping photos. Eventually, we arrived at Abby Park in East Milton Square.

Abby Park offers a special $5 menu from 3:00 – 5:00 pm (website says 3:00 – 6:00 pm) everyday at the bar. The menu includes 7 different appetizer dishes, each of which cost just $5.

To start, I ordered a glass of Gruner Veltliner from Austria, which was light and citrusy, but sort of dry, which is just the way I like white wine! ;-)

Mal had a 7 & 7.

To eat, we shared a couple of appetizers from the Happy Hour menu:

Dip trio with chickpea & lemon hummus, white bean & rosemary, olive & sun-dried tomato tapenade served with crispy flatbread

Curried chicken & cashew croquettes with honey-cilantro yogurt dip

Both appetizers were delicious, especially for the price! Mal said the chicken croquettes reminded him of crab cakes, which I agreed with for the texture, but flavor wasn’t fishy at all. The croquettes had a sweet, curried chicken flavor. They were very good.

One of the bartenders hooked us up with some dinner rolls to finish off the dips from the Dip Trio. I really loved the white & rosemary dip, while Mal dominated the other two. We ended up devouring them!

Mal and I were having such a nice time at Happy Hour, we decided to extend our date with a round of “dessert” cocktails. I ordered an Oatmeal Cookie Martini and he ordered another 7 & 7.

The Oatmeal Cookie Martini was fabulous! It tasted more like a butterscotch cookie that an oatmeal cookie, but I still really enjoyed it.

Mal and I ended up hanging out at the bar for nearly 3 hours, sipping cocktails and enjoying life. I love date night! :mrgreen:
