My little sister is getting MARRIED in two weeks! eeekkkk!!!
We have a lot to celebrate this weekend in Kelly’s honor. Not only does her bachelorette festivities kick off tomorrow evening (she requested a one night bachelorette party instead of a whole weekend), but today marked her last day of school as a first year teacher. That’s right – she made it through one solid year as a 10th grade history teacher and lived to tell the tale. Go, Kelly!
We celebrated the end of the school year (her fiance is a teacher, too!) at their favorite place – Mellow Mushroom.
You can’t go wrong with Mellow Mushroom. Good beer, good food, and great atmosphere. Perfect for a casual Friday night out.
We had a bit of a wait for our table and decided to use up that wait at the bar. I spotted the Cigar City ESB on the specials board and decided to give it a try. The ESB was bitter, but I like bitter and liked this beer.
Cheers! Here’s to two weeks of distraction-free wedding planning!
We didn’t have to wait long for our table. Just enough to grab our beers and do a single cheers before hearing our name called.
Hunger was our main concern, so we ordered some “Mellow Balls” to munch on while reviewing the menu. The “Mellow Balls” were mini pizza dough balls that were drenched in garlic and butter and topped with parmesan. Soooooo good.
I tried not to fill up on Mellow Balla because I knew I wanted pizza. Kelly, Anthony, and I split the large Mediterranean pizza with tempeh instead of chicken. It was very cheesy and greasy. I wish it had more toppings, but it was otherwise pretty tasty.
There was actually an error with our original order. The server had punched the wrong pizza type in the system and we were initially served a holy shitake pizza with tempeh instead of the mediterrean. Since the pizza was already made, the manager offered to box up the incorrect pizza for us to take home while they baked the correct version. Free large pizza? We’ll take it!
I see a pizza heavy lunch in my future.
The girls split from the guys at this point with the plan of going home and watching The Vow. Good plan, but we decided we wanted Jeremiah’s instead.
One P-nutty and Cake Batter Italian Ice later….
we spent too much time talking in the car and ended up missing our movie window. Oopss. No biggie. I’m sure we can get a group of girls together to watch it again in the near future.
Oh, and I should mention that by “missing the movie window” I mean it got to be 10:30 and we decided it was too late to start a movie that we would all fall asleep during. Yep, we’re old.
Kelly is sleeping on the couch next to me. I’ll take that as a sign I should catch up on my Zzzs too.
Rest up while you can, Kelly. Tomorrow night is going to be crazy.
