Brews, Brunch, and Easter Fun: Weekend Recap

I am constantly taking pictures.  My phone is home to over a thousand shots of food, animals, myself, my friends and family.  My whole life is there.  So, as a peek into me, I am posting all of the pictures I took last weekend.  Sure, it is a week later and maybe I should just do this weekend, but roll with me.

My weekend started Thursday night when one of my best friends from college came into town.  While living in Milledgeville, we ate Amici every week and as per usual this is where we ended up tonight.

After a night of wing eating and “Scandal” watching, we needed some fuel for our next day.  As you know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we do not play around with breakfast.  We headed to Athens staple, Mama’s Boy, for some stellar breakfast grub.  I had their daily special, which this day happened to be a split biscuit topped with grilled ham, poached eggs, and hollandaise.  AMAHZING.

After brunch, we headed to Atlanta for the rest of the weekend.  We started at Sweetwater Brewery.  It was the perfect day for a brewery visit, absolutely sunny and beautiful!

Weimaraners are without a doubt in my top five dog breeds.  It is the result of watching too many William Wegman Sesame Street segments as a child (and adult woman).

After the brewery, we went to dinner at Grindhouse where I saw this gem.  Honestly, the best way to get a tip.

After dinner, we went bar hopping in Virginia Highlands.  I’ve gone out in this area a couple times now and always enjoy it.

The next morning we went to brunch at The Ivy, a total bro bar but the brunch was delish.  I started with this “fully loaded” Bloody Mary complete with celery, olives, lime, bacon, okra, and a chicken wing.

Some of my college loves, three who I know will always have my back.

For brunch, I had the Ivy Eggs Beauregard, a split biscuit topped with pimento cheese, a fried green tomato, bacon, fried eggs, and hollandaise.

Brunch lovin’

I made it back to Athens in time for a wonderful Easter Sunday with my family!  We had our traditional Easter brunch of breakfast casserole, grits, and biscuits.

f course the bunny brought the pups some goodies too.

This was taken after our Grandfather asked us if we had any of “those selfies” on our phones.
