I am so ready for a relaxing weekend at home. My plans? Let’s say they involve lots of movie watching and some dear friends.
Today’s edition of Friday Faves will be a little different than most if that’s alright with you. Last night, I went out with my friends Leah and Jennifer for an early birthday dinner for Leah. I’ll break it down for you Friday Fave style!
We all were really curious to try a new sushi restaurant called Sole that opened in downtown Augusta. New restaurants are a pretty big deal around here. We were seated at the sushi bar and all decided we should give their sushi a try this trip despite the fact that they had some seriously amazing sounding entrees.
Favorite: Sweet Potato chips (actually, sweet potato anything)
The sweet potato chips were really good. They were very light and weren’t greasy at all. However, we all agreed they could have benefited from some type of dipping sauce for fun.
Not so fave: Their sushi.
Ehhh, it was ok. Kinda like Publix sushi. I think I will stick with my beloved Takosushi when I need a sushi fix though. However, I am looking forward to going back and trying their entrees at some point. P.S. They charged me 50 cents for a side of teriyaki sauce! Um, no. Restaurants that charge for extra sauce get some serious side-eye from me.
Fave: After dinner walks at sunset.
After dinner, we went back to Jennifer’s new apartment and decided to take a little walk to explore her neighborhood. Isn’t this place so peaceful? We kept joking that it reminded us of The Notebook. All that was missing was a boat, Noah and about a dozen geese.
What we lacked in geese, we made up for in other animals. Walking back to Jennifer’s apartment, we passed one of the local restaurant’s farm and gardens. Of course, I was the one who had to stop and try to play with the animals.
So even though dinner wasn’t quite what we were hoping, girl’s night was still a success since my company was the best.
One final Friday Fave? My friends.
Hope you have a great weekend! We’ll catch up on Monday, deal?
Do you give restaurants another try if they don’t “wow” you the first time?
Have you tried any new restaurants recently?
What are your weekend plans?
