Snapshots of a Long Weekend

Happy thunderstorm-y Monday, y'all!
This past weekend was one for the books. Patrick and I both took the day off of work on Friday, so we had a nice, long weekend to celebrate the end of tax season.
We kicked off the weekend by catching a Fireflies game with some friends of ours. Tebow might not have played & the Fireflies might have lost, but we still had a great time! We hung out in the outfield and there might have been some heckling from our crowd...
Friday, there was a breakfast of waffles & sausage, a super productive morning crossing things off our list, and then an early happy hour at Twisted Spur. They had their Southern Belle Blonde beer back on tap which made my day. It hasn't been available the last few times that I've been there and it's hands down my second favorite beer in Columbia {behind River Rat's American Kolsch Story}
From there, we walked around the Vista to check out some of the new murals at the entrance to the Lincoln Street Bridge tunnel / greenway.
& then it was off to Lula Drake for a double date night of drinks at the wine bar / dinner at Main Street Public House. Lula Drake has added some great outdoor seating, complete with umbrellas for those hot, sunny afternoons that Columbia is well known for.
Main Street was packed on Friday thanks to the gorgeous weather out and the Indie Grits Festival going on at The Nick.
On Saturday, Patrick and I made a quick road trip up to Charlotte to visit some friends and do a little brewery hoppin'. We made it to six breweries Saturday afternoon!
Birdsong Brewing
Legion Brewing
Wooden Robot
Triple C Brewing
Olde Mecklenburg Brewery
Sugar Creek Brewery
We had such a good time visiting Laurel & Steven!

I'll have plenty more to share about the breweries later in the week. We went to two new-to-me breweries, two of my favorite Charlotte breweries, and to two that I wanted to give a second try to see if I liked them any better the second time around.
Spoiler alert: we liked them all!

It was a great weekend that ended entirely too soon. I'm already counting down the days until this weekend. We've got the Wine Tasting at the Rivebanks Zoo Botanical Gardens and {drumroll, please}: the return to KIAWAH!
The fact that I can't even tell you the last time that I was at Kiawah is all the justification that I need for a quick trip down there this weekend. Bring on the sunshine & beach days!
