Another weekend in the City & more Shamelessness

I had the pleasure of spending another overnight in one of my favorite cities with 2 of my life-long best friends. It was truly a blessing to get to spend time with these amazing women, live it up in a swanky hotel suite, and manage at our ripe old age to go full out on a 6 bar crawl of the city's best places to drink, dance, and people watch.

We really should do that more often. I think we will.

One of the highlights of this trip, much like my last trip there a few weeks ago, was another amazing dinner. This will be serving as #3 on my 30 Days of Shamelessness: eat. Whatever you feel like eating.

I totally did. And it was delicious and worth the bazillion calories that came with it. 

We went to a great restaurant/bar/lounge place that had a unique menu and even better atmosphere. The food offerings were kind of "the usual" but most had some sort of delicious twist on traditional American fare. For example, they had french fries that were tossed in truffle oil and made them truly the most richly flavorful fries I have ever had. I stole about 20 of them from my girlfriend's plate as I had opted for another tempting choice: Buffalo Chicken Macaroni & Cheese. 

Yes, it was as awesome as it sounds. Spicy and creamy at the same time and with so much gooey deliciousness, I totally could have had an restaurant booth mouth orgasm at any moment. It was truly just.that.good. 

I don't even want to think about how much fat and how many calories were in that bowl of heaven and really for as delicious as it was, I don't even care. That dish was so good, it was totally worth the damage I'll be working off for the rest of this week. 

Overall, between the friends, the city, and the food.... it was a yummy, decadent, treat of a weekend. 


  1. Fact is those decadent times don’t come often enough and the time with peeps is priceless. It sounds like it was just what you needed 


  2. I am going to have to try the chicken thing the next time I bake mac & cheese. Sounds like a good weekend.

  3. I adore the food and drinking weekend with the girlfriends. We do it once a year, out of town. It's always fun to try new places and who can go for it food-wise when they're counting calories? Not me. Sounds like not you either. Truffle fries? Yes, please.

  4. Reminds me of a great dinner I had in Chicago not too long ago. The food was awesome and the atmosphere was enhanced by the crazy company. Chicago brings out the loonies.

  5. Sounds fantastic.
    I hate onions, but a Bloomin' Onion? OMFG.
    And I think it's possibly one of THEE most fattening things ever created to eat. Really, I think that's a fact. HAHA

  6. yup, making that buff chic mac and cheese for dinner tomorrow.

  7. Glad you had fun. I had a huge steak over the weekend. I can relate.

  8. You have a gorgeous figure and do not need to worry about those bazillion calories at all, love.~ Either way though, I do agree that the food sounds like it was worth it.


I like attention, so give me some please!
