Canoe

It’s Thursday and we are back!!!! I’m really excited to be writing on Thursdays again. I loved podcasting and I will get back into it soon, but having to substitute writing with having to be on camera more than once a week, I’m okay with just writing. With that being said, it’s been a really long time since I’ve done one of my favorite things in writing and that’s write a review! So as the seasons change and people are getting to be more romantic and intimate with each other, I know a great place to eat!

As you all know, I recently celebrated a birthday. I was really set on just doing going out and having a good day. A couple of suggestions came that told us to go to a little restaurant called “Canoe”. I can definitely say that it was truly a fine dining experience. We made reservations and the whole night all of the staff addressed us by name, the food was incredible, and the service was really outstanding. On top of all that, the cost was reasonable.

They are fairly known for having some sort of exotic meat on the menu. When we went back at the end of September, the meat of the hour was a peppercorn crusted kangaroo appetizer. The foodie I am couldn’t resist! It was possibly the best thing I’ve ever tasted. That was just starting the night though. After both of us had an appetizer, entrée, drink, and dessert, we spent less than $150.

From the moment you pull up to the parking lot, you get a very intimate and sophisticated vibe. Walking into the establishment, the dim lights, light chatter, great smell, and friendly hostess greeted us at the door. We were seated in about 10 minutes and got the whole night to enjoy ourselves. Service was prompt and constant without being overbearing, the food was delicious and the vibes were perfect. I’ve had other fine dining experiences, but none of them as great as this one; it was truly a perfect way to celebrate and a great place for an intimate date night.

I hope some of you get a chance to go and tell me about your experiences! Below are the pictures and videos of our food!

Friday Funday: Fall on the Horizon

Finally, it’s Friday!!! I know it’s been a short week for most of us, but that doesn’t change the fact that the weekend is finally here! Here’s a quick look into some things to do this weekend; so let’s get right into ways to take the load off.

I’m sure most people tend to forget, but September 15th is the start of National Hispanic Heritage month. With covid still running rampant in the streets, a lot of the normal festivities have been canceled for this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go support Hispanic businesses in the meantime. Last weekend I tried some birria tacos and I’ve had them 3 times already! I love a good taco and this is one that definitely exceeded my expectations. So the first suggestion for my foodies is to go try some birria tacos at your local hispanic owned eatery!

Now I realize that everyone doesn’t like tacos, or even food as much as me. That’s why I’ve got some other weekend suggestions. As we are starting to experience some chillier weather, it’s about time we prepare for the season change. If you’re a festive person, now is a great time to start decorating for the fall. Putting up the door decor, maybe some walls decals and festive throw pillows on the sofa can really set the mood for the season coming.

We know that the weather these days is really unpredictable, but metro Atlanta, we’re supposed to be expecting storms all weekend. What better way to spend a rainy Saturday evening than with a good cozy book? I’m currently reading “Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race”, and it’s a truly incredible. It details the struggle of race in Britain, which is very similar to that in America. Another good page turner for the people that like more mystical/sci-fi books is “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”. It’s a series about a young boy on a search for the monster that killed his grandpa. Along the way, he learns about the home where his grandpa grew up and leads to all kinds of adventures. For people looking for a short read, I’d recommend “Milk and Honey”, a book of poems that’s sure to entice all readers.

Whoever you are and whatever you’re into, this weekend gives you a chance to get some things done. Even with the odd nature of the world, we can still enjoy the little things. So let’s remember to kick back, relax, and be safe this weekend as we find something to do!
