Happy birthday, Mom!
OK, so her birthday isn’t actually until the 7th, but today was the perfect day to celebrate! Emily came to work with me, which meant waking up way earlier than normal for her. She was a champ though, and we even brought Arri with us. We were both diligent, hard workers today at the office. Arri even spent a half day at Chilton, once she was tired of hanging at Westridge.
After work, my people all met up at Barley and Board. The place just opened up a few weeks ago and this was my first visit. This is the part where I tell you to drop everything you’re doing and go eat at Barley and Board RIGHT NOW. The place is amazing.
The menu is divided into small plates, large plates, and boards. It’s pretty easy to eat individually or share with your group. Pictured here, just below my mom, is the Mother Board, which comes with all kinds of goodness to get your pallette going. For my main course I had the hangar steak, which was by far the best I’ve ever had. I could cut it with a fork and it melted in my mouth. Man it was delicious. Don’t even get me started on the cocktails! Be warned though, the place is a splash pricey by Denton standards.
I’m glad we decided to take a gamble on a new place for my mom’s birthday. It paid off big!
We finished off the night at East Side. I got a cocktail recommended by Kitty called the St. Bernard. It’s like a root beer float, but with booooooze. I drank mine really fast. #sneaky
