This past Thursday was MT’s birthday, so I wanted to make the weekend all about him.
We had some cake on his actual birthday, but I made him a special dinner (chicken Parmesan) on Friday night.
On Saturday night, we celebrated by doing some bar hopping in the NoDa area of Charlotte.
By the way, NoDa is short for North Davidson Street, in case you’re not from these parts and you’re wondering.
We started off with a visit to Heist Brewery where we enjoyed a tapas style dinner, including fire brick salmon, forked-up ahi, steak and papaya martinis (served in martini glasses), chicken and waffles, and pork belly corn dogs.
Everything was delicious and the presentation was awesome.
We’re told that they also have shrimp wrapped in cotton candy which looks like something Dr. Seuss would have dreamed up, but we were way too stuffed to try it. Maybe next time!
Before we left, I enjoyed my only glass of alcohol for the evening being that I told MT I’d handle driving back home. I’m way too much of a lightweight to drink any more than that unfortunately.
Our next stops were to NoDa Brewing Company where we met up with one of MT’s friends and his wife and then finally Birdsong Brewing Company.
Even though I couldn’t really drink, it was still a great time, and most importantly, the birthday boy had fun.
Other weekend events included a family visit to Trader Joe’s to stock up on some food essentials and wine (also essential), some walks, scenic drives, and lunch at Hickory Tavern to watch college baseball.
MT and I really wanted to take Michael to our neighborhood pool on Sunday afternoon, but the weather just did want to cooperate. Hopefully, we can go next weekend!
How was your weekend? I’d love to hear all about it.
Have a great day!
Tapas are so cool. I’d love to enjoy that again!!! Sounds like a great weekend. And look at your, so selfless for your hubby. My hubs is this weekend, and I’m getting his gift(s) all prepped. He works all weekend though which is a total bummer!!
Looks like such a fun weekend! I love a little bar-hop on a weekend afternoon
