This past weekend, we went out to dinner at MW Restaurant to celebrate my birthday a bit early. The food was delicious and everyone that waited on us wished me a Happy Birthday. We ordered off of their pre fixe menu and each got an appetizer taster, entree, and dessert. They also brought out a special dessert to celebrate (which we ended up taking home because we were SO full). Definitely a place that makes you feel special if you’re celebrating something!
Last week, we went with some friends to Makana for a special dinner. They’re moving locations and wanted to use up what they currently had in stock. The owner talked through each course and how they prepared the items. His philosophy is to use every part of an animal, fish, plant, etc. It was really interesting to listen to him speak and talk through his approach and philosophy. Can’t wait for the new location to open!
Charcuterie to start the meal
Second course, alllll of the meat (lamb, beef, venison)
I met my friend Jenn for brunch a few weeks ago at Egghead Cafe. I ordered a blended drink that was significantly larger than I thought it would be (but completely worth it) and Huevos Rancheros. Both were delicious!
Catching up on some very late blogging since I’ve been slacking lately. A couple months ago we tried Cafe Maharani and it was absolutely amazing. The atmosphere was really fun and every single thing we had was delicious. Cannot wait to go back the next time I’m craving Indian food!
Last weekend, Josh and I went on a sporadic date night and decided to try something new. We used to go to a restaurant when we lived here the first time called Du Vin. It closed a couple years ago and Bethel Union opened in its place. The food was unique and the restaurant had a great atmosphere!

A couple weeks ago, my aunt Jan and uncle Bob came to visit. We did all sorts of fun things including hiking, snorkeling, kayaking and eating all sorts of food. So happy they were able to come spend some time with us. We had an amazing time!
