Bodega + Surly Girl Saloon

August 8, 2011 § 1 Comment

Since last week so unproductive in regards to this blog / my bucket list, today I’m proud to report just the opposite. Two more things crossed off the list!

Not sure how I feel about this… my time in Cbus will be over before I know it.

So anyway, Bodega is a bar that has a killer beer list. I think there are always 50+ beers on tap, and they change weekly, depending on the season. Top that off with a killer happy hour and $1 grilled cheese on Monday nights, you have a hipster heaven. Tiffany and I aren’t exactly hipsters, but I think we did a good job dressing the part.

Tiff said it best – it felt like we were wearing Halloween costumes! Between my fedora and her knit vest and hippie headband, we really outdid ourselves.

We walked down to the Short North and finally ended up reaching Bodega to be met with a huge crowd. After a few minutes of waiting, we both ordered beers. I got the Weasel Boy Mango Wheat, it was yummy but I don’t think I’d order it again. Tiffany got a grapefruit infused beer (if you know her, you aren’t surprised) and it was so fruity and fresh, a perfect beer for such a hot day.

Since Bodega was so packed, we decided to skip out on the grilled cheese for dinner and ended up going to Surly Girl Saloon a few doors down. Surly Girl is a Liz Lessner restaurant with a kickin’ cowgirl theme. I loved it! It has the same kitschy feel that sister restaurant Betty’s has; there are countless frames, mirrors, and western themed decorations  on every wall.

My favorite was this chandelier though!  It was absolutely amazing in person.. I really love chandeliers for some reason, and this one was beautiful.

So, we did eat a delicious dinner, but it was so dark in there that the pictures didn’t really turn out.

Will you survive if you don’t see a picture of my wrap and Tiffany’s sandwich?

I sure hope so! 😉


Kitchen Sink Cookies

Well, I have neglected my little blog for far too long! For a while I thought I lost my blogging mojo, and the only “daily” thing I’ve been thinking about is why on earth I thought I would be able to keep up with this every single day.

Anyway, besides the usual onslaught of school, I haven’t been up to much besides hanging out with Rob, working out, and catching up on all the Real Housewives.

Last night, after some delicious sushi and a round of this ab workout, Tiffany and I decided to get really wild on our Friday night.

We decided to bake!

Okay, I know. We’re 22, and spent the night eating sushi, baking cookies, and doing youtube ab workouts… think what you will, but sometimes it’s just what the doctor ordered.

Since we are both graduating and moving to Florida in 3 short weeks (!!!), we decided to use up some of the stuff we have floating around our kitchen.

We threw in everything from shredded coconut, almonds, sunflower seeds, oatmeal, brown sugar, dried fruit.. we had no method except opening drawers and cabinets saying “Oh yum! let’s throw this in!”

Can I just show you a close up of what we mixed our cookies in? Ha!

Anyway, we made a huge mess of our kitchen…

But, we ended up with a delicious end product!

Truthfully, I wasn’t sure these would come out good at all.. I mean, we didn’t even use any flour and we just threw things into the pot without measuring!

Where Am I?
