Saturday, Fab and I met up with some friends for brunch. This is starting to become our Saturday ritual, actually. Ooooh! maybe we should start a brunch club, and I can write about all my fave spots in Atlanta here on the blog? That would drive Fab CRAZY. Lol! He hates when I take pictures while were eating, buuuuuut I managed to get away with it this weekend, somehow.
So anyway, this weekend, we went to Folk Art in Inman Park. It’s a casually cool spot with an artsy kinda vibe…lots of reclaimed license plates and vintage paraphernalia on the walls. The food was good…not remarkable…but good. On the other hand, the selection of craft beers and cocktails was outstanding. We all started with a round of What’s Up Docs, a cocktail that combines vodka, carrot juice, apple cider, and fresh ginger…but we all swapped out the vodka for bourbon. Yum, yum, yum! Fab also tried a craft beer from Chicago with his meal – Finch’s Mocha Porter (I totally forgot to steal a sip, but he enjoyed it.) And, I finished my meal off with a Southern Hospitali-tea…tea infused gin, Grand Marnier, and lemonade…sooooo good! Fab didn’t love it…he said it was too sweet…but I thought it was delicious and refreshing!
I was good, and I only took pictures of my own food…didn’t want to be too obnoxious, right? By the way, taking pictures of food is soooo hard..what looks good on your plate, can look downright gross in pictures! If I’m going to blog about the brunch club, I guess I better start reading up on food photography! Lol. Anyway, I had fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. I LOVE fried green tomatoes, but I can’t make them to save my life. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating…I’ve only tried once, but I couldn’t get the batter to stick, which was dumbfounding to me because I can fry the hell out of fish, which is also tricky in the batter department. (Sigh.) Anyway, if fried green tomatoes are on the menu, it’s pretty much a given…I’m going to order them. Folk Art’s fried green tomatoes were actually really good. I’d order them again. For my meal, I ordered lobster rolls, but I was so full from the tomatoes and the cocktails by this point that I couldn’t eat them both. They were okay…definitely rich and meaty and like a lobster roll should be, but a little salty for me. But overall, I enjoyed my food.
What I’m Wearing: Suakoko Betty Hawa Swing Dress (same dress in a different print available at Belk), ShoeMint “Garbo” Pumps (sold out, but almost identical at DSW), American Apparel Medium Carryall Clutch, super cold earrings.
What did you do this weekend?
