I'm down... but maybe give it a few weeks or so. We just had a baby and there is no way I'll be allowed out of the house for a fun dinner for a while.
I read this and now I can not stop thinking about how our girlfriends are changing after the birth of a child. By the way, the changes are noticeable precisely after the birth of the first child. There are those who take this topic completely and no longer pay attention to anything else. There are those who honestly divide responsibilities in half, but also divide small joys in half. And there is an incomprehensible intermediate option when a young mother begins to think that she knows everything better than anyone else. They made so many comments to my brother about everyday things, sent links like how to clean windows correctly. And this concerned not only the fact that inside the house but also "you drive the car incorrectly", "you choose the wrong food in the restaurant". CTCBea, I do not think that everything is so in reality. It's just that this topic really caught on. I have not married yet but there is a girl. And there is a bad, extremely bad example from a brother. In short .. I get nervous and start hiding the diamond ring that I already bought ((

Let's set a date a month or two in the future. Maybe a wine bar crawl on a Saturday? I'm down for most things just need to be able to plan around it since I have to come in from Beaumont.

took the family to UB Preserv last night for oldest birthday. ordered just about everything on the menu... food was great.

I was kinda surprised the place wasn't more crowded/busy... maybe still limiting capacity but first time I've ever been there when it wasn't filled up.

Went to Haymerchant last night. Loved it. Great food. Tons of beer on tap. The goat dumplings are the bomb.

Went to pAppas burgers with the family Monday night. 2nd time in a few months the burger and fries are just not the same quality. For $16 per burger I'll move on for a while.

I did have a john Lucas sighting at dinner that was mildly interesting.

Totally agree. Only worth going during happy hour. Rip off otherwise.

It was fine/good. But won't go back. Expected much more. Expensive as it gets too.
