Wednesday night, my amazing boyfriend surprised me with a date night. First, we went to the circus, which by the way, is way under-rated these days. I’m not saying I was a captivated kid with a light-up spinny toy, but I was pretty dang close. I mean, it’s hard not to be completely captivated by the animals, lights, glitter and the unreal acrobatics. Right?!
After the circus, we grabbed a late night dinner at the brand new Sky Castle in Lakeview. The vibes in that place are rad. Trust me, that word is very appropriate. The silver trim, blue lighting and ultra huge flat-screen tv enticed me at first glance.
After ordering our drinks (his usual bourbon and sprite and my Moscow Mule), we started out with the Pimento Cheese Fritters that were served with smoked andouille sausage, Beer Stout Mustard and House Made Pickles. These were just as delicious as they sound!! They were fried and fattening, but judging by my track record, I clearly don’t mind! Everything in moderation, right? 🙂
For our main courses, we ordered the Chicken and Waffles and the Pan Roasted Gulf Black Grouper. Y’all, it was me that ordered the Chicken and Waffles… it was so embarrassing, the poor waitress thought it was my boyfriend’s meal. Oops, what can I say?! MODERATION, my friends.
Both of these dishes were too good. I would absolutely recommend this hot spot to anyone and everyone!! It would make for an awesome after work cocktail, too. Try it out! Then head over to any of the great bars of Lakeview for a night out in The Magic City!!
