Hello all! My apologies for my not-so-brief hiatus from the blogging world. I've started a new job and it seems to be taking up all of my time. This past Friday night, after an exhausting week, Mr. T and I decided to have a low-key Friday night; something not very common for us. We started our night at Nose Dive Gastropub. In appreciation for National IPA day, they had Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA on draft, something restaurants are currently struggling to keep on hand. When we heard they got a hold of this rare beer, we rushed over there to make it in time for happy hour. After a couple of beers at the bar, we decided to grab a table and eat dinner there, too. Mr. T had the Fish and Chips which was great, and I had the Gastropub Burger. I rarely order a burger and fries at a restaurant, I just find so pedestrian, but I'm glad I got it. It was one of the tastiest burgers I've had in a while; flavorful beef and cooked to perfection. It was accompanied by sweet potato fries cooked in duck fat, need I say more?
After dinner we headed to the Roper Mountain Science Center for the viewing of their film "Starry Nights". Roper Mountain Science Center shows a film every Friday night at 7:00 and 8:15 pm. Tickets for adults are only $5, almost half of what it costs to go to the movie theater nowadays. We had a great time at the show, and it was quite entertaining and informative. This month's film, "Starry Nights" focuses on the life cycles of stars, black holes, nubulae, star clusters, and some other cool sciencey stuff. Mr. T and I had a great time, and were home and asleep by 10:00. What a great grown-up Friday night.
If you're interested in going to the Roper Mountain Science Center, you can find them at 402 Roper Mountian Rd. Greenville, SC and at RoperMountain.org.
