Michael and I almost always go west for our date days. Encinitas and Carlsbad are our go-to locations to hang out, eat some good food and walk around the beach town. Today, we decided to do something a little different, we headed NORTH! We decided to make an impromptu trip to Fullerton to hang out with my brother and his girlfriend, and it was a blast!
Here is my brother, Brad, and his girlfriend, Michele in front of an awesome purple door we passed! Aren’t they cute? 😉
We started the day out at a cute little brewery just a few minutes from Brad’s house. The indoor area flowed out into a small patio area with a little succulent garden, large jenga pieces and best of all, puppies! We ordered pizza and garlic knots from the pizza place next door and oh man, it was delicious!
Our second stop brought us across town to Phantom Ales. I’m not much of a beer person, so Brad brought us here because they have wine and ‘meed,’ which I had never heard of (and didn’t end up trying… next time!). While we had our drinks we played a round of “Brewopoly.” It’s basically Monopoly, but you try to buy up breweries and you get sent to “Last Call” instead of “Jail.” None of us really remembered the rules for traditional Monopoly, so it made for an interesting game!
[Notice how the pictures get increasingly worse as the night goes on (and the glass of wine goes down…lol)].
On our way home we stopped by Krispy Kreme Donuts and indulged in a little late night treat. We also picked up a RedBox… The Night Before. I had high hopes for comedy gold from Seth Rogan and Joseph Gordon Levitt, but it was bad, really bad. And so another adventure day ended and it was back to reality on Sunday with work and chores!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
