It’s happy hour somewhere! I’ve had the pleasure of having drinks at the Walker Inn twice so far. The first time I went with a group and we sat in the lounge area, the second time was at the “omakase” bar.
My visits were both in December, which is when they had their holiday villain menu. Drinks were named after things such as the Sticky Bandits, The Grinch, etc.
First off – if you get any sort of hangover I highly recommend telling the bartender to stick to only one spirit. The next days were not my best.
Although it is quite nice to be able to try a few things off the menu, I tried all the whiskey beverages and one wine situation (the Grinch). Every drink tells a story – like what would the grinch drink? I loved that they were all thought through so well. One of them came with a flask on the side, another in the cutest budweiser glass, you really can’t go wrong.
My absolute favorite was their version of a hot toddy which came with ice cream on the side. The ice cream tasted like ice cream cake, which is pretty much one of my favorite things in the world.
All in all, The Walker Inn is a fabulous place for special occasions. The drinks are on the pricier side at $20 a pop but absolutely worth it. Just don’t forget to make a reservation!
I read about the Driskill’s Bloody Mary Bar and made it a must-do on my Austin list. They give you your spirit of choice (whiskey) in a huge mason jar and let you fill up on unlimited amounts of bloody mary mix and all the fixin’s including Sausage, Carrots, Olives, Lemons, Limes, Cheese, and all the hot sauces. It was absolute heaven and the perfect treat to have before we sat down for brunch in the cafe.
I had the farm fresh quiche and it was the best quiche I’ve ever eaten. I couldn’t believe how delicious and fresh everything was. Highly highly recommended.

I spent the last few days in Austin, a city I fell in love with 9 years ago but hadn’t been back since. Every single meal (seriously) was mind-blowing.
Our first breakfast was at Tamale House East. I had the Migos Breakfast Taco and Potato/Bacon/Egg Taco. They were both absolutely incredible. They also have Mimosa Carafes for $14. The atmosphere was cute, hip and lively on a Thursday morning.

Happy New Year Everyone!
I wish you all a prosperous year. I have set a few goals for myself and I really hope I can get started on them ASAP.
I want to write more, workout more, cook for friends/entertain more often to name a few.
To 2016 and beyond! ❤

But actually. It’s like West Hollywood. Mykonos is known as the party island, but the area we stayed at was off the beaten path near Elia Beach. We stayed at an AirBNB with it’s own infinity pool and free delicious breakfast every morning. The beach was less than a 3 minute drive away (unless we got lost). The water was crystal clear. I met Eliza the dog on our boat, how cute is she?
I recommend going to Scorpios for drinks during the day or go at night for the party/club scene. The view and atmosphere is just gorgeous. Just don’t mind the (lack of) service.
This was taken from the fisherman’s boat we rented in Mykonos for a day. This was one of the many deserted islands we stopped at for a swim. How magical does this look?
The chefs served up BBQ lamb, greek salad with a huge brick of feta we could help ourselves to and tons of sides to snack on. The bartender made the best caipiroskas all day long. Can I go back now??
One of the best cocktails I’ve ever had in life is the C. Arthur at Bar Stella in Silver Lake.
Great King Scotch, lemon, honey, cold pressed ginger, angostura.
