Oh, hey there Monday after the Super Bowl. Not-so nice to see you.
If you’re like me, you ate way too much and stayed up way past your bedtime last night just to watch a football game. Except I did that all weekend, so I guess I only have myself to blame.
But I’ll blame New England instead, because everyone hates those cheating Patriots.
Saturday’s over indulgence of my own doing started with dropping D off at her grandparent’s house for the night, and heading to the big city with my mister. We were joining six other couples to partake in Devour Downtown, and I may or may not have fasted for 24 hours to prepare for the goodness.
To kick off our night, we had a few Sun Kings at Tin Roof while watching the end of the Indiana v. Rutgers game. This was kind of in mourning, since our favorite beer stop in Crawfordsville can no longer carry Sun King. Seriously, we’re in shock. I guess we’ll just have to make more trips to Indianapolis to get our fill of Cream Ale.
From there, we headed to Adobo Grill to meet up with our group. We had the perfect area – a whole room with a big round table – so the conversations were as rampant as the guacamole. Of course, this means I ignored all blogger instinct and didn’t take any photos. #bloggerfail.
Three courses of excellent Mexican food + a margarita for $30/person is my kind of night. If you’ve never participated in Devour Downtown, mark your calendars for the Summer edition. It’s a great way to check out new restaurants, or visit the ones that you normally reserve for special occasions (i.e. filet and shrimp cocktail at St. Elmo Steak House)!
After dinner, we migrated to the bar for one last Dos Equis Amber before we headed all the way back to the ‘Ville in the snow. That’s when we discovered the $65 margarita on the menu. Seriously – who buys that kind of drink!? And who spends $500 for a tequila locker above the bar?!
Maybe someday I’ll hit the jackpot…
A fun night out was followed by a cozy Sunday in. Snowpocolypse was pretty much a no-show, so we were able to make the trip across town to watch the Super Bowl at my parent’s house. Bean dip, shrimp and a pot of arroz con pollo is a far cry from our former big game parties, but at least no one was injured this year (carpet burrito!).
And thankfully, there were no celebration shots. Although, there might have been if the Seahawks would have remembered the name Marshawn Lynch….
Did you participate in Devour Downtown this weekend? How did you celebrate the Super Bowl? Favorite commercial? Fiat wins in my book.
Local friends – is there anywhere else in Mo.Co. that sells Sun King?!
