Christmas in Pleasant Ridge.

This afternoon we drove over to Pleasant Ridge to go to Overlook Lodge and check out their annual Christmas extravaganza called Miracle at the Overlook Lodge

We’ve heard that Overlook goes a bit overboard with their holiday decorations…

The drinks on their seasonal menu sounded fantastic…

I started with their Christmas Carol Barrel and Genifer their Snowball Old-Fashioned…

Cleve and Alyssa joined us for a drink. For our second beverage, Genifer had their Jingle Balls Nog and I tried the Yippie Ki Yay Mister Falcon…

All the drinks we were really tasty. Genifer loved their nog, and my favorite was the barrel. After finishing our drinks, we walked down the street to Revolution Rotisserie to grab a bite to eat…

I had their chicken pot pie special and Genifer had boneless wings…

Delicious stuff all around. It was another really fun evening over in Pleasant Ridge.

Mardi Gras at Overlook Lodge.

After brunch at Revolution Rotisserie, we walked over to Overlook Lodge

Overlook was hosting a Madri Gras party this afternoon…

We met our friends Chris and Tayler at Overlook for the festivities…

Overlook was mixing up some hurricanes…

Out on their back patio, they were having a big crawfish boil

I tried my best to eat as many crawfish as I could. They’re tricky little buggers. And there was also a giant king cake which was much easier to eat…

Somehow, the baby from the king cake was already in the pine tree on our table when we got to Overlook. It took us a while to notice him but there he was, just hanging out…

It was such a fun afternoon celebrating Madri Gras at Overlook in Pleasant Ridge!

Tonight, we meet our friends Chris and Tayler in Pleasant Ridge to celebrate. They just closed on their house earlier in the day. Our first stop was back at Nine Giant

After yesterday’s pretzel awesomeness, Genifer and I decided that whenever there is a giant soft pretzel on the menu we have to order it…

Nine Giant has a pretty solid pretzel. Their cheese was really good.

Nine Giant is a really fun little place. Really good beers. I really like their Conjure Me Sweet Milk Stout a lot.

And then we walked next door The Shining inspired Overlook Lodge

Genifer ordered the Writer’s Block made with bourbon, apple-berry sweet tea, and elderflower liqueur…

And I got the Apollo 11 made with vodka, espresso syrup, cold hot cocoa, almond milk and topped with a toasted marshmallow…

Genifer also tried The Calumet with bourbon, peach-pecan whiskey, ginger liqueur, allspice dram, lemon, carrot juice, black walnut bitters…

It tasted like Thanksgiving all in our glass. Our friend Megan took this photo…

She must have the first camera phone ever made ever. Anyway, it was a really fun evening out in Pleasant Ridge. 😀🥃❤️

Congratulations Chris and Tayler on your new house!
