Awhile ago, I bought an Our Town and All Around coupon book. I think I only paid $20 and it’s been the best investment. While the book has chains restaurants and deals, it has a fair share of local restaurants which I especially appreciate.
So, when Michelle from All Lacquered Up and I decided when wanted a girls night, I decided to use a buy one get one free entree coupon for Amp 150! Normally, I don’t like to spend so much on a random week night, but the coupon allowed us to eat really well for cheaper than normal. Amp 150 is located in a Marriott. From the outside, it does not look like much, but I felt that the inside was gorgeous and very open. Just in case, we had 7 pm reservations and were seated immediately. Luckily it wasn’t too busy.
As soon as Michelle arrived, we started talking and were chatty Cathy’s all the way to the end. I love people that I can relate to so easily and Michelle is one of them. I actually remember reading her blog back when I was in DC having no idea she was based out of Cleveland. In between girl talk, we ordered the Flat Bread with Killbuck Valley oyster mushrooms, goat cheese, and celery leaves. They really had me at goat cheese. It as outstanding.
It took me awhile to decide on my selection but I eventually picked the Braised Beef Short Ribs which was the best decision. I didn’t even need a knife for these, they just fell off the bone. I’m drooling even looking at this picture.
We both stuck to non-alcoholic drinks. I’m realizing that even if I drink a little on a week night that I am super tired the next day. I’m still working this week and next so I need to be on the ball. I can’t wait to do it again! Conversation + good food is always a win in my book.
So, Blondes vs. Brunettes has surpassed the goal of raising $25,000! Can you believe it?! I am amazed at all the love and support. I can’t wait to actually play next year. I decided this year not to play because I didn’t want to spread myself too thin but next year, I’m IN. #TeamBrunette 2013. #TeamBlonde better watch out
Root for your roots!
I hope you are well on this Tuesday evening! Oh! Todd and I got to FaceTime for a brief moment. The app just won’t work too well even though we both have full internet. What gives? Isn’t the point of having FaceTime is to actually USE it when your boyfriend is away on his Coast Guard boat? Sigh.
Tonight was such a beautiful evening. This was the sunset over Lake Erie tonight… <3
