Weekend Review 42

This past weekend was quite a boozy-doozy weekend. I had a giveaway a week or so ago for tickets to a beer event at the Minneapolis Boat Show so I was offered a pair of tickets and my little sister won a pair as well, cause I have so many readers!

We met up for a quick happy hour and some light food before heading in to taste some local brews and find our dream boats.

After the boat show we headed to Salsa A La Salsa's new location in UpTown for some chips and guac and tacos. I'm so excited to have this restaurant just a hop, skip and jump from my apartment. While the other girls didn't love their experience I feel like we were at different restaurants. I loved my house margarita and I thought the steak tacos 'popular style' were tasty and filling. Our server could have paid a little more attention to our table though. We saw the bus man more than we saw our server. Only complaint there.

Saturday was a great day. The sun was shining, it was warm and I had my last spin class at The Shed via ClassPass. I can not rave about that place enough! There were only half a dozen of us in the class but the instructor gave us a great motivational speech with background music to boot while we warmed up, he 'woo'd!' a lot, came around and introduced himself to everyone and at the end of class shook everyone's hand and thanked US for a great class! The Shed is definitely one of my favorite local gyms if you want to get your butt kicked and get all nice and sweaty. Check out this story on The Shed.

After my workout I got dressed and ready to start a day of brewery hopping around Minneapolis with a group of friends! I walked down to LynLake Brewery since it was so gorgeous out and snagged us a table by the open windows. I had their Neighbor Enabler which was very tasty.

Next we moved to Herkimer where their happy hour isn't just discounted beer. It's 2-4-1! So we shared some beers and food to get a base before heading to NorthEast.

Our third stop was Bauhaus. It was my first time at their brewery and my first time trying their beer. I had the Wonderstuff, again, a delicious beer.We ordered pizza and played some games. This place has an awesome patio covered in string lights that I can't wait to enjoy this summer.

Our next stop was Sociable Cider Werks. I had the Freewheeler which is a lighter, crispier cider. We were lucky to get a large enough table for our whole group.

Our final stop was the 1029 Bar where some of the cabin neighbors met us. It's such a great little dive bar to end the night.

Sunday was the struggle of all struggles. I laid in bed, in horrible pain all morning but luckily I was able to put myself together for volleyball practice. When I got home I managed to somehow burn the top of my frozen pizza while the bottom remained doughy and not at all cooked. Yes, I had the pizza on the middle/low rack. The fella came over and we watched about a dozen movie trailers since it's FREE STARZ week! Then we finally settled on Reasonable Doubt. I highly enjoyed it with plenty of twists throughout the movie.

And that brings us to the present. It's Tuesday and the smell of pizza is wafting through my office. Meanwhile I have a loaded salad calling my name.

12 Days till Mexico!
