You all know my unending love for the Violet Hour. One of our favorite bartenders from there, Stephen, recently left and has opened up a new place in Lincoln Park, called the Barrelhouse Flat. I really probably should have written the whole blog post about this...because it's so awesome. The "newest" cocktail on the menu is from 1946. The first floor is live piano jazzy awesomeness. The second floor is a beautiful lounge that absolutely makes you feel like you've stepped into another era. OH AND THE FOOD! We know the drinks are amazing, that's assumed. I can't speak to the entire menu, but I will say this. They have bacon popcorn. Feel free to read again if need be. Bacon. Popcorn. YES! Also, sour patch kids cotton candy. I died and went to heaven on Friday. Absolute deliciousness.
Saturday morning I made coffee and cinnamon rolls, and for lunch we strolled to Piece pizza, just up the street. We were so blessed with beautiful weather this weekend! Sunday we went back to the Palace Grill...which is pretty much my new favorite breakfast spot in the city. If you haven't been, you should make that happen. They have the best pancakes and hash browns I've tasted anywhere.
What did you do this weekend??
