The cloudy, rainy, thinking yesterday was Thursday (making today: Friday – NOT!) has not made for a happy day today. My day at work just seemed to drag on. I am desperately hoping that weather.com is correct and that Nashville is in for some sunshine tomorrow and Saturday.
Since I needed a little homemade sunshine we used a groupon we have been trying to use forever. It was for The Wine Loft in the Gulch. We live within a mile of the Gulch and it started POURING and HAILING on our (very short) way there. I was ready to give up and get some takeout but Jon insisted we stay the course. We waited the rain out for a few minutes before heading running in. Thursdays at The Wine Loft are ‘La Femme Night’ which means $5 for some martinis and half off appetizers (they don’t tell you this, but it is only half off the appetizers that are $13 or less). This is not our first time there…and everything we have tried is tasty! Our favorites are the baked brie (it has a balsamic reduction on top of it that tastes like chocolate!), caprese salad (I love caprese salads and try them at most restaurants – and The Wine Loft’s is one of the best that I’ve had), both lamb plates and the pistolettes.
On another note: I think that Jon taught Bella how to shake tonight. We’ll see if she still remembers tomorrow 🙂
