As I said in my last post, Jonathan and I did most of our celebrating the weekend before Valentine’s day. We started out on Friday night with dinner at a fun place I’d only been to for happy hour: 26.
(Please excuse the iPhone photos; I forgot to bring my camera into the restaurant!)
The menu had so many yummy-sounding things! It was hard to decide, but in the end, I couldn’t quite get past the seared Ahi tuna served over vegetable lo mein.
Jonathan ordered what our waiter called the “seafood pasta,” though it sounded more colorful than that on the menu: Gulf Coast Shrimp, George’s Bank Sea Scallops, Prosciutto Ham, Shiitake Mushrooms, Sweet Peas, Handmade Strozzapretti Pasta, Sage White Wine Cream.
Geez…what an awful picture. This was great, too—creamy and very fresh.
After dinner, I surprised Jonathan with something I thought would be ridiculously fun: tickets to go see 1999: A Tribute to Prince.
It. Was. Awesome.It was hard with the light show to get any good shots. I have several mental pictures tucked away though, and they are of perfect quality.
Saturday was a really fun day, too. We started with a really light breakfast. That is local bread from Big Sky Bread, a Pink Lady apple, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses and smoothies containing banana, berries and pineapple.
I had the smoked chicken and side of mac and cheese, and Jonathan went with the pulled pork plate, along with mac and a side of greens.
Oh, and we had some frosty beverages.
After lunch, we took a little a short walk over to Edgewood Creamery. It was such a lovely day, and what better time for ice cream?! Look what I found out front:
I loved the celebs on the menus:
That was my weekend in a nutshell 🙂 We’ve been having some awesome weather, and I’ve been celebrating by making my way around some of my favorite Birmingham places. Local love!
