I woke up from my nap REALLY wanting a beer. Now, I know this not recommended the night before a race, but who am I am deny a craving? So after getting ready, and while we were waiting for Paula to join us for dinner, the hubby and I went to lobby bar for a beer (ummm…or 2).
At least it was local (sorry for the crappy iPhone picture)…
The plan was to hit up Cheesecake Factory once Paula arrived — but when we got there, there was an hour wait. It was almost 8 — so no thanks!
We went next door to Bar Louie. We apparently DO have one of these in Orlando, but I haven’t been. It took getting to Tampa to try it out. Well, I approve. We started with Bruschetta. It was good. The hubby had an awesome blackened chicken dish, Paula had the Blue Louie (a sweet ass burger), and I have the 4 Tacos Plato (with chicken).
After dinner we (ok I) decided that we needed some Froyo. We headed to Yogurbella. Which just sounds bad. I got a Passion Fruit/Vanilla mix and I should have just stuck with the Passion Fruit because it was awesome (basically just a tart flavor). The vanilla was eh. The fruit was good though…
At this point I was also delirious. Evidence:
After our dinner extravaganza we headed back to the hotel where Paula hilariously slept in a roll away bed and I woke up every hour thinking I was going to miss my alarm. Good times!
Up next (and probably tomorrow morning)…the half marathon! It was fun and frustrating and beautiful. More on that tomorrow though… time to focus on the Oscars 🙂
PS – Paula sent me most of these pictures (except for the one I stole from her site) — so go visit her and let her know how nice and beautiful she is!! Thanks Paula!
