- pinewood tippling room -

we recently went to the pinewood tippling room in downtown decatur, which is located in the old cakes & ale. we found a great scout mob deal and decided to try out the new restaurant.

the pinewood specializes in southern fare and fancy libations, which both lived up to their expectations. the restaurant in the style of other modern watering holes, ie. h. harper station, with tasty, albeit pricey, handcrafted cocktails. the bartenders were very knowledgeable though and definitely worked hard for their tips! the food was very tasty as well. we both ended up going with the fried chicken & waffles and had the crispy pork belly to start things off.

we definitely enjoyed our first pinewood tippling room experience and would head back! be sure to check out their dinner, libation & spirit menus.

- march madness -

my dad and i were able to score tickets to the ncaa men’s basketball championship game this year in atlanta! it was last minute, but well worth the effort. the key was buying tickets from fans who were disappointed their team lost in the elite 8. and even though there wasn’t any booze available, it was still a ton of fun!

i have to admit, the ticketless flash seats process was the smoothest large event i’ve ever attended. with over 75,000 people in attendance, we didn’t have to wait in any sort of line while entering the arena. they just swiped your credit card at the door and you were good to go, your ticket was printed right then and there for you. you could also resell your tickets fairly easily through their website.

be sure to check out the louisville fan sporting a cardinals hat and glove while texting!
