Many people come home from vacation and relax or slow down a bit, but not us! We were lucky to host our sweet friends, Ashley, Jason, and Ethan this past weekend for some Austin adventures. It started off with pizza at Brooklyn Heights on Friday and led to entire weekend of fun. We are all foodies and craft beer lovers so we knew we were in for a weekend of indulgence. Ashley and I love to shop so we knew we'd get to have some girl time, too. Saturday morning, Ashley, Ethan, Lola, and I took a morning walk. Later we headed to the Dig Pub for lunch and to Hamrick's to check out their stash of rare beers. We drove to an area in North Austin that was home to several breweries and tried out 4th Tap Brewing Co-Op and Adelbert's Brewery. There were several more in the area, but we only had so much time.
Saturday night, we tried a new place, Gagnam Zip, for dinner. It was a Korean place that was highly rated on Yelp. It was really crowded, which we took as a good sign. We ended up taking it home. Everyone tried something different and it was all tasty. Later, Mike and Jason went to Whitestone for beer and an 80's cover band. Ashley and I enjoy shakes from In and Out and girl time while watching Bad Moms.
Sunday was another busy day. Ashley and Jason got us treats from Morning Sunshine Breakfast Treats, which were all super tasty. We got ready for a busy day, stopping off at Big Cat BBQ for a quick bite first. After lunch, we dropped Mike and Jason off at Jester King Brewing and headed out to San Marcos to the outlet mall. It was super crowded, but we found a parking spot. Ashley found some great deals and the people watching was abundant that day! On Monday morning, we walked over to Easy Tiger for breakfast and did some light shopping at the Parke. We came back to the house and got ready. Later, we went to Mighty Fine Burgers for lunch and sent our friends on their way. It was another fabulous weekend with some of our favorite adventurers. We can't wait for our next adventure together!
