It's birthday quarter over here at Unfiltered Adventure. Yes, I know there are 4 of us, but we have birthday quarter, one month off to celebrate another friends birthday and then another birthday. Cheers to lots of celebrating.
Back to birthday #2. We kidnapped the birthday girl, Kristi, for some hand crafted cocktails at Manifesto before a delicious meal at the Rieger. Kristi's cocktail had fruity pebbles on top, but tasted nothing like the cereal. Andrea's root beer float was the bomb!! Thank you Shatto!! And you cannot go to Manifesto without trying the Beautiful Red Bell!!
After 2 cocktails at Manifesto, you must eat! Especially if you have the stirred cocktails, ahem, Stephanie. Luckily the Rieger is right upstairs-aka, within stumbling distance! They have an ever changing menu that is very innovative, so we all tried something different.
Who doesn't love a good sweet potato centerpiece?? #usewhatyouhave Andrea got the special and it was the best. Pea purée made the dish! Clearly we are total foodies. Aka-we love ALL the food!!!
Christopher Elbow chocolates with a candle in a votive/shot glass wins for creativity!! I wonder what she wished for?? More chocolate? Or more wine?? Or was it for more celebrating?? Or all of the above.... Obviously all of the above!!
Saturday was a gorgeous day, so we put on our faded days shades (all the cool kids are wearing them) and headed to drink some wine!
It was Amigoni's one year anniverary party, so we hit the urban winery up for wine tasting and food trucks!! Well, some of us ate...all of us drank!! The tasting was great and we liked several of the wines. The Sauvignon Blanc was a crowd favorite and perfect for a hot day!! They also have been for those who don't like wine.
We clearly all had a terrible time!!
How can you not smile? There's so much wine!!
You knows it is probably time to head home when drinking out of the bottle leads to....
Time out and lost sunglasses!
You know what cures a wine hangover, rum soaked bread casserole from Chrissy Tiegen's Cravings cookbook. Because as Chrissy says, rum is for breakfast! Thank you Steph for the delicious breakfast...with champs because we are fancy!!
Another great celebration!! Cheers!
