After a few hours of wandering around the Mart, it was time to meet the most amazing gay man this world has ever known, Robert, for dinner. *Side note: every girl deserves a man like this in their life. What I would give to have the ability to view myself & life through his eyes where everything is fabulous & I look like Cindy Crawford.* Back to food: We dined at the original Six Feet Under where I feasted on their seared 'Big' Tuna dish and had a few tasty IPA's that I cant remember the name of. No pictures, but a cool spot. Gets it's name from the cemetery across the street. The have a 'famous' bloody mary bar for Sunday Brunch.....but I'm always driving back that day and have missed it.
After dinner we hoped over to The Sound Table for a few fancy cocktails. Robert & I met up with Libby & former beach 'local', Rebecca, to catch up a bit. This place had a super cool, hipster vibe. The cocktail menu is slightly intimidating if you aren't familiar with funky cocktails and fancy liquors. Since it was freezing outside I had the most magnificent Irish Coffee known to man. Too bad they didn't have decaf. The space was very dark with all of these little intimate seating areas, hence the dark images below. The banquet Libby & I sat on was constructed to look like the slat wall in the second image. Loved that detail!
After my night of fun I needed some major 'substance'. Especially for the long day ahead. So when it came time to order breakfast in the hotel restaurant I completely caved and ended up with eggs AND bacon. Oops! Lunch was in the depressing Mart cafeteria. I was a god girl with my salad....with steak on top. I was just the teeny tiniest bit hungover & NEEDED it baaaaaad. A little afternoon nap later & I was back to 100%!
Now for dessert. Nope-this ride isn't over yet folks! Between the five of us we split 2 magnificent Flans and some cake-something-another I didn't make it to. This Flan was magical and each bite had me 'mmmmmmmm'-ing and on the verge of unbuttoning my pants to make room for more. It was covered in the most perfect of caramel sauces and accompanied by two caramel sugar bacon cookie things. It was the perfect blend of salty and sweet. I don't believe I would have touched any of my dinner had I known this was at the end!
