Sizzle: A Restaurant Review

Hey people!
I hope your week is starting off better than mine (work woes)...but on a high note, I have a restaurant review for you! I tried to score a gift card to giveaway...but that didn't happen.

Usually I stay away from new restaurants for at least a month. Or two. What's my issue? I hate kinks. Like really hate kinks. Especially for non-chain establishments that are just kicking off. But one of my gal pals posted a link to this place before they opened and I knew it would be right up my alley.

The name of the restaurant is Sizzle and it is "A Bacon Eatery!" As much as I try to cut back on pork (and beef), I don't think I will EVER quit bacon. Like never. I don't eat it as much as I used to but man, I loves me some bacon! So needless to say, this place wasn't open a good two weeks before I made my way there. The circumstances that got me there are a little shady, but I went nonetheless.

A few friends and I decided to head on over and give it a go...all equal bacon lovers. I must say, overall, I was impressed. There were a few kinks but not enough for me to say I'm never going back. And I'm sure those minor issues will be worked out soon, if they haven't already been worked out.

One of the things that I loved was that the owner came out and introduced himself and he walked around to check on things. Now this may be because I told him I was going to blog about my experience, but I'd like to hope that it is his norm.

It's a quaint little place located in 5 Points here in Columbia. I see another visit in my near future. The waitresses were friendly and the drinks were awesome. See below for what we had for dinner.

Peachy Lemonade

Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog w/ Bacon Pimento Cheese

Even the pickles were yummy...Hey Grasshopper!

All B and No LT...Hey Tran!

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Grits

Bacon Split

Bacon Cheesecake
Overall, everything was enjoyed. I usually don't drink during the week (or on the weekend for that matter lol) but the waitress kept insisting I try the Peachy Lemonade. It didn't disappoint! The highlight for me, however, was the dessert. We shared both...but I could have easily devoured them both on my own in one sitting. The cheesecake was something they were just trying out, but I would scream to them "LEAVE IT ON THE MENU!" For real.

So, hats off to Sizzle for showing us a bacon good time! Y'all go try it and let me know what you think!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
