weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

It’s the last weekend of September, so I had to do it up right with my Weekend Shenanigans! This weekend was full of delicious beer, food and fun with friends!

Warning: Food Porn Ahead!

I kicked off the weekend with Laura and happy hour at Saturn! The orange drink is called the Rocket Booster and it had things like honeysuckle vodka and Tang in it. Needless to say, adult slushies are awesome.

The second drink I had was called the Spacehive but it was way too strong tasting for me. When I order a cocktail, I don’t want to really taste the alcohol and that is all I could taste in mine. Same with Laura’s second. If you like strong tasting drinks, then their regular cocktails are for you!

Friday evening Chris and I had Moe’s BBQ for dinner and were excited that all of our shows are coming back on! We had a night in front of the TV and it was relaxing and just what I needed!!!

Saturday morning I headed up to my sister’s house to pick her and the boys up so we could go visit my dad. His birthday was this past week and he had to have surgery this week as well, so I was glad we were able to fit in some time to see him. His fire department was out raising money at a community eventย so we spent some time with him there.

When I got back home, Chris and I headed to World of Beer for a little bit to catch the Alabama game. I tried the Cheeky Cherry cider from Woodchuck, and of course Tavern Taters were ordered.

Saturday evening, we stocked the fridge with our fall favorites and ย Chris and his friend Jay streamed TomorrowWorld in our basement while I finished up reading Rebel and caught most of the Auburn game. All whilst we snacked on seven layer dip.

Sunday was Breakin’ Bread! It is an annual foodie event every year in Birmingham. Proceeds go to Camp Smile-a-Mile, so you can enjoy all the foods knowing it is for a good cause. Plus, we always go with Laura and B so we know it is going to be a good time!

The event was held at Sloss Furnaces this year. The venue was pretty cool, it is an old factory here in Birmingham that still stands today and is used for things like this event, music festivals and beer festivals. You can even rent the space out for weddings too.

It was crowded!!! So many more people this year than last year!

Here are all of the delicious eats!!!

Breakin Bread

I got to try Chicken and Waffles for the first time, there was a lamb and feta cheese ball up there, asian style chicken dumplings, a quesadilla with thai peanut sauce, all kinds of meats and cheeses, pork stuffed cornbread, Fatso Bread Pudding (made with a chocolate stout), filet steak wraps, apple fritters, crawfish pasta, korean chicken, pizza and so much more!!

J Clyde had their Fire Truck there that has kegs and taps! So cool!!!

Even though it was rainy when we first got there, it quit after a few minutes and the weather was perfect! It was cloudy and in the 70’s with a cool breeze every now and then. It really felt like fall and I loved it! The food was fantastic, and the company even better.

    The food sounds good, but I’m eyeballing the drinks! Cherry cider? Yummm… I’ve been “indulging” myself a bit too much lately in the alcohol department and this isn’t helping!

  • Reply Sophia Rodriguez September 28, 2015 at 9:13 am

    Adult slushies are my very favorite types of drinks. I’m the same way with cocktails! And oh my world, the food. I’m really eyeballing those taters, they look delicious!

  • Reply Mattie September 28, 2015 at 12:37 pm

    I’ve never had chicken and waffles either! I always say the next place I go that has it I’ll order it, but then I end up finding something else on the menu I want instead. I really need to try it! Also, if there is bread pudding somewhere, it is going to be consumed by me. And I’m with you on cocktails…I don’t want it to taste like I’m sipping straight alcohol on the rocks!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph September 28, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    I love Tang and I always will. I don’t care how processed it is.

    Sunday’s event looks really fun!

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky September 28, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    i love it when outdoor events get the best weather!! so happy that things cleared up for you and that it really did feel like fall.

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo September 28, 2015 at 1:13 pm

    So now I really want to repurpose an old fire truck into a bar. Kegs and taps in it?! So cool! We have a school bus that comes to some of the tailgates at my school that has one tap out the back, but I think several are necessary. Looks like an awesome and yummy weekend!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth September 28, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    Your beer fridge picture made me smile. Our entire bottom shelf with our fridge is beer. I wish I was kidding. I basically have a half functioning fridge and we don’t even drink that much. We are always ready when company comes over though ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And THAT is how you eat on the weekends. Bravo to you. That all looks insanely good.
