We decided our summer thing (sometimes we skip spring here, so we need to plan early) is to go get pie. I LOVE pie. Pie is perfect. It fits any occasion, season, mood. Pie is happiness, and I want perfume that smells like it.
Our first pie adventure was to Quack’s Bakery. It was a not too warm evening, and we sat outside, sharing pie with friends. We shared a slice of peach pie and chocolate cream. And somehow the air vents wafted fresh pie right past our noses, and I wanted to camp in their parking lot forever.
(second photo from here) I was too busy deciding on types of pie to be bothered with photos.
Last week the girl and I had a fun date night and attended a great event that was put on by Dulce Vida Tequila, Barreled 2013. It was their inaugural Barreled event and was a great way to kick off the pre-SXSW activities with some good food, music and company. The set-up was awesome with food trucks in the parking lot and barrels stood up on end for tables for people to pull up at and enjoy some tasty guacamole and tacos. They even took some old wooden pallets and turned them into swinging benches inside the warehouse which helped create a really fun vibe and atmosphere. Not to mention they partnered with Collings Guitars to put on some great live music featuring local musicians such as MilkDrive, Redd Volkert and Sons of Fathers!
Now that’s a way to welcome your guests! A huge logo projected on the side of a warehouse.
A photographer with a nice set-up greeted you as soon as you walked in the door. Say “Cheese”!
Strings of light across the warehouse really helped set the mood.
Guac N’ Roll was there and we got to try all three kinds of guacamole they had. Who doesn’t love avocado?
The Peached Tortilla food truck was in attendance and had their usual great tacos and brussel sprouts with bacon jam.
Dock & Roll Diner had some great poppers and at first I thought it said “fresh pickled lobster” and was completely confused until the girl corrected me.
