    YAY! so glad you loved it! (when I make recommendations I am always wanting them to turn out well, of course!). I’m happy in this case it was a hit – being one of my favorite restaurants in town. 😀

    you should watch the menu online for the pimento cheese burger, or call and ask when the guys are adding it back to the menu… it really is stellar!

    have a great week, Lisa!

      It was so good! Thank you for the recommendation. I want to return and try their steaks. We have some family coming to town and I bet we end up taking them there…

      I really want to try the pimento cheese burger!

        yep – the chef – owners REALLY know their stuff… everything I’ve had there has been amazing.

          That’s good to hear. I love restaurants that are so good you want to go back to try all the other items!

    Hubs and I ALWAYS split dessert. It’s a great way to get something sweet but not have to worry about all the calories from a full dessert. Yum!

    If I ever visit Portland, I am enlisting you for food recommendations. You eat at wonderful places!

      We almost always split dessert. I never feel guilty about indulging when we do!

      I will definitely give you a list of restaurant faves if you ever visit. And good hikes too! 🙂

    Super cute dress, where from?

    High five on not liking black licorice or fennel. Nasty!

    Now Red Vines…those are another story.

    You’re a big tropper for making it out to dinner. I think I would have fallen asleep right out of the shower.

      I got the dress at Ross. I thought it would be a nice summer dress.

      I can eat black jelly beans but that’s it. Hate fennel! I even pick it out of my sausage. Yuck.

      I was very sleepy after the ride but the food gave me a second wind.
