This past weekend we had some visitors!
Tony’s parents came to stay with us. They flew in late Friday night, and flew out Sunday afternoon, that left all day Saturday to do the sights. They didn’t have any “must-do’s” on their list, but just wanted to go with the flow. On a beautiful Saturday, it’s no surprise that the flow brought us to our favorite weekend spot.
The dog park at Piedmont Park. This was the perfect place to go because Masey was able to get some fun in and it’s a beautiful place to walk around for us humans!
It was SUCH a gorgeous day and there were tons of people out and about. After hitting up the dog park and walking around for a little bit we went to Park Tavern. A little restaurant at Piedmont Park with the view in the above picture. We each had a drink and an appetizer while Mase hid under the table in the shade.
Someone actually said, “my dog would never be that good”, in reference to Masey just laying with us! She normally is all over the place being a disaster, but if you let your dog play at the dog park enough, even the most hyper of dogs have to just chill for a bit. Dog park FTW!
After our drinks we went back home to rest-up and clean-up for dinner. We headed over to one of our favorite Atlanta restaurants, Canoe, for dinner. Unfortunately it’s on the pricey side, so we’ve only eaten there once and had drinks and appetizers another time. You can’t beat the location of this place.
Right on the river. We had a glass of wine outside while waiting for our reservation to be ready.
For dinner I ordered the sole with french beans, fingerling potatoes in a caper sauce.
It was really good, but not quite as good as the salmon I had last time. Tony’s mom got that and I was jealous. Tony ordered the braised short ribs and they were amazing!
Tony’s dad ordered a whole fish that they fileted at the table in no-time.
That definitely wasn’t the first fish she had taken the bone out of. Overall our dinner at Canoe was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking to have a nice dinner out in Atlanta. It is a bit off the beaten path (west of Buckhead), but worth the drive for the location alone. The great food is just icing on the cake!
After dinner we headed home and relaxed for the rest of the night. Sunday we went for a walk around our neighborhood
and then we drove around the city showing his parents around before breaking for dinner and then dropping them off at the airport. It was sad to say goodbye, but hopefully they come back soon! I really do love having company! (hint, hint)
After dropping them off, Tony headed in to work for a few hours while and I meal-planned for the week and then did the grocery shopping. Once Tony got home we go the grill going to make some kabobs. While he did the grillin’
I did the chillin’
Ok, that was lame. I’m sorry. Not lame? Our delicious dinner!
Brussel sprouts, grilled pineapple, chicken, steak, peppers and onions. Get in mah belly!
The rest of the night we sat outside and listened to tunes while Masey ham-ed it up.
What a great little weekend!
