Venus Trapped in Mars

Bloody Terrific

This weekend was fantastic because I pretty much just parked the car and hung out in my hood! Friday the pups and I enjoyed some vino on the porch... they drank red, and I drank white. They are so much classier than I am.

(JK of course... we all drank white) 

I'm moving to the other side of the building next week, and I'll be losing my patio. So I had to soak up all the views of the cotton bowl and fair park that I could! 



Poor Veenie pup woke up sick on Saturday morning, as you can see from this picture below. Doesn't that just break your heart. She has some sort of wicked cough going on. I'm trying to hold out on an unnecessary vet trip, but as of this morning, she still wasn't any better. Poor sweet pup!


Saturday night I had my first Pecan Lodge experience. This place has a lot of hype. It just opened a new location in Deep Ellum, and the line generally wraps around the building. We got there early, we're talking 5:45pm when the line was relatively short, and still waited in line for an hour. This place only sells BBQ until they're sold out, so it is possible you could be in line for an hour, only to be  told they're out of food. Whomp whomp. Luckily we not only got plenty of food, but beers and a great spot at the bar too! This place was delicious and I totally recommend it, but GO EARLY! 




And if you follow me on Instagram, then you know this happened.





 
Anvil Pub, which is steps from my apartment, serves the most incredible version of brunch ever. You have three choices, a 32oz Bloody Mary with onion ring and slider, a 32oz Mimosa/Screwdriver with a breakfast sandwich and pastry and fruit or the 32oz Sangria topped with a steak taco. Oh, and did I mention it comes with a beer too?

Dear sweet baby Jesus, just learnin shapes and colors. Who wants to go back and taste test the other options with me?!

  12. Good lord, I want your weekend (other than the sick pup, of course). Talk about some incredible food. I hope Veenie feels better! Sometimes dogs just get little colds like we do. My girl had indigestion last week, but everything seems to be fine now. Hopefully it's not kennel cough... that's the worst!

  22. I think at least half of the reason I love your blog is because I'm so familiar with Deep Ellum so I can just picture everything you didn't photograph! Glad you had a fun one!
