Friday we headed over to another friend’s pool because it was so close to Katy Trail. This is definitely a spot to explore if you’re ever in Dallas. We lounged a bit, enjoying the first pool day of the year before walking over to the Katy Trail Ice House. This is the sort of place where you could sit for hours talking to friends and that’s exactly what we did. I enjoyed the Summer Beer, a Blue Moon and vodka-based drink, while Kellie tried a grapefruit concoction and Caitlin enjoyed a mimosa. They both switched to Sangria next.
We headed home to freshen up but quickly turned around for dinner. We kicked things off with champagne and a local cheese platter at Veritas Wine Room then headed next door to Henderson Tap House for the main course, pizza and mojitos. They brought a lot to the table – pun intended – with the best ranch dressing ever. I know. Bold statement. For late night drinks we visited Social House and Blackfriar. Social House has a bunch of fun games to play out back like ginormous beer pong.
Saturday began with brunch at Cane Rosso. Apparently we hadn’t got enough pizza the night before so we followed our salad and burrata with two more pizzas. P.S. the mimosas are $1 here. Yeah, that’s pretty much all you need to know.
We went straight from brunch back to the Katy Trail Ice House where we spent hours catching up. So long in fact, that by the time we left it was dinner so we headed straight to Max’s Wine Dive. We were sold the second we saw their slogan “Fried chicken & champagne?… Why the hell not?!”
Clearly all this dining is exhausting. I polished off a pimento grilled cheese sandwich with Parmesan chips and tomato soup. This is after we all shared the amazingly delicious max n cheese. We headed home with full bellies and ended up calling it a night. Caitlin and I left off in the morning after a homemade breakfast and sadly wished Kellie and Jackie goodbye. And of course we’d set the plans for our next reunion in motion by the next day. Jersey Shore, look out for us. Coming to you in the summer of 2014.
