Ella’s

by Meghann on August 22, 2012

Swim practice was canceled tonight – a fact that I was not sad about. A majority of our group was still playing catch up from competing at Nationals this weekend in Vermont ( can you believe they road tripped it there from Tampa? they are hardcore) and the rain that started coming down at 10:00am, was still going strong at 5:00pm. It was a lethal combination of “this is soooo not happening.”

Instead of practice, Marcus suggested a few of us get together for dinner for a round of catch up. Sounded like a plan to me. I suggested we check Ella’s out and met the group around 7 for dinner.

Love Ella’s. Great food, great drinks, and a great laid back atmosphere that always makes you feel welcomed. We were seated right away and I followed Marcus’s lead by ordering a spicy watermelon tequila drink that resembled a tequila in ingredients and looks, but not in taste.

I wasn’t a fan. It was too sweet for me and missing something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Marcus, however, loved it.

I ended up sending the drink back and ordering a house cab instead. Much better.

Bread with yummy garlic butter was enjoyed with the drinks.

Ella’s menu has a little bit of everything ( definitely a crowd pleaser restaurant). Mary and I decided to split a salad and a pizza since the ones we saw pass us looked delicious.

Salad

The Southern Spring Salad was delicious, but a little heavy on the sweet side. I needed something salty (bacon?) to balance it out.

Pizza

Excellent choice. The pizza was rich, but sooo delicious. I like that the egg was subtle and covered in cheese. The bacon was also a nice addition. Yum.

We had both stuffed ourselves with bread and salad, so we could only manage on slice of pizza each – leftovers!

Awesome night out with my girls (+ Marcus!)

Group hugs :)

I miss Team XP – can’t wait for practice on Friday!

For now I’m ready for bed. Good night!

p.s. I updated the wedding page – check out our dilemma on the first song.
