Why? Weekends!

It was a fun, busy weekend! On Friday night, Matthew and his friend Brian checked out Billy’s A Cappelli Martini Bar, a relatively new spot in Mentor.

Billy’s menu is an interesting mix of fun and tasty martinis to drink, with pub fare to eat. Matthew had a cheeseburger and Brian had a pizza.

From the feedback I heard, it sounds like a great neighborhood spot! Billy’s is celebrating a year in business with a Customer Appreciation Night on Thursday, January 30, with drink specials and complimentary appetizers.

From martinis to tea, my Saturday involved beverages of a different sort as I attended my friend Beth’s baby shower at Miss Molly’s Tea Room.


Miss Molly’s is a cute little spot! We lunched on chicken salad croissants, soup, and, of course, tea. But the best part of the meal was the cake, made in house at Miss Molly’s. It was light, not too sweet, and entirely delicious!


Then it was time for presents. Since Beth is also having a boy, I definitely got some good ideas for when I make up my registry.


It’s been so nice to have a good friend pregnant at the same time as me! Beth is 8 weeks ahead of me, so she’s been able to give me the scoop on pregnancy just slightly ahead of where I am.

While I was at the shower, Matthew and my Dad grabbed lunch at Whitey’s Booze n Burgers. His burger had jalapeno bacon and bleu cheese. After all these good burger pictures, I’m craving one myself!

On Sunday, we had our friends Jason and Patty over to hang out. Their son Lincoln got to meet Tobey and the two seemed to hit it off pretty well!


We ordered a selection of pizzas from one of favorite places: The Wild Goose. They have a great selection of unique, wood-fired pizzas! Some of our favorites are the Tony Roni, with jalapenos, pepperoni, and spicy red sauce; the Murphy, with potato, bacon, cheese, and sour cream; and the Loosey Goosey, with sausage, green pepper, onion, and olives.


It was a nice afternoon of good friends and good food!

How was your weekend?
