Why? Weekends!

So, I told you about my crazy winery Saturday, but what about the rest of the weekend? Oh, there was plenty to keep me busy those days too! On Friday evening, I met up with Jess and Sarah for dinner at Deagan’s Kitchen and Bar.

I was in the mood for a little bit of everything, so I ended up with the deviled eggs, the pretzel with beer/gruyere dip, and the seared tuna.

Deagan’s is always a go-to spot for good food, good beer, and a relaxed atmosphere. I had such a nice time chatting with Jess and Sarah, too. Yay for new blogger pals!

Since I already told you about my Saturday shenanigans, we’ll jump right to Sunday and St. Patrick’s Day. We had a two-tiered plan to celebrate. First, Matthew and I met up with Beth and Enzo to take in all the downtown Cleveland craziness. We started at Flannery’s Pub.

It was here that Beth and I realized we hadn’t been out together for St. Patrick’s Day in 10 years! Yikes! We had some catching up to do. From Flannery’s we headed to Black Dog Kitchen and Bar for some crazy cheap Reuben sandwiches ($6!) and beers ($3!).

We ended our downtown Cleveland crawl at the newly-opened Parnell’s Pub near Playhouse Square.

On the way home, Matthew and I did a turn around downtown Willoughby. We rocked out to The Cleveland Barflies at Willoughby Brewing Company while enjoying a Peanut Butter Cup Coffee porter.

Our next stops at The Wild Goose and Frank & Tony’s Place were less successful, as the staff were overwhelmed with the crowds and beer and food were not really all that available.

All in all though, it was a fun St. Patrick’s Day and we had our share of green beer and luck o’ the Irish!

How was your weekend? Did you celebrate St. Paddy’s Day?

  1. We celebrated St. Paddy’s Day on Saturday by going to Pittsburgh & singing “Cleveland Rocks” at a karaoke bar… it was interesting to say the least! 😛

    Also, I agree – that pretzel looks amazing! Will definitely have to check out a few of those locations!
