Weekend Things

This weekend killed me.  But in a good way?  Death by weekend happiness, or something!  And tell me, if you’re only 26, is it too early to have already had the top night of your life?  Because last night, I ate coriander-crusted lamb, fried chicken & buffalo sauce, wild mushroom risotto, Brussels sprouts & squash and a green-chile cheddar biscuit then went to the most amazing concert at Larimer Lounge.  And I got to do it all with my best friends.  Does it get any better than that?!

Rewinding back to Friday when my mom and I had a dinner date for Denver Restaurant Week!  We’d never gone together, so I made reservations at D Bar (remember when we had an amazing cake tasting there?!) and to say I was excited would be a huge understatement.

True Story: Whenever I go somewhere that has rave Yelp reviews, I’m always kind of skeptical.  Can it really be as good as everyone says?  I’m VERY HAPPY to report that D Bar did NOT disappoint.  I was blown away by how good everything was!  I think my personal favorite was how cute my mom was my shrimp and grits entrée, but also how cute my mom was.  She’s holding up PRE-DESSERT in that picture.  I didn’t even know that was a thing, but I’d like more of it in my life.  We had such a fun night!
