Ok, so now that I’m officially 31 and my life resembles a fine blend of Leslie Mann and Katherine Heigl’s character in Knocked Up, I’m moving on to Happy Hours and retiring the club heels/BPM/vodka-redbulls for good. Why? Well, glad you asked. Because when else can you put in work and sneak away to get amazing cocktails/apps for like a fraction of the price and still be home for dinner with the family?
Last week, I made it over to The Gladly for the first time. They had this salad on their happy hour menu (YES, a salad on a HH menu!) and a person that was with us kept raving about how great it was. A couple minutes later, the runner brought the salad and listed the ingredients: smoked lox, arugula, dried corn, pepitas and currants, Israeli cous-cous, bruschetta tomatoes and a creamy basil ranch. When he said that, I literally thought to myself “on what planet would that be good?” & then I tried it. & then I ate pretty much all of it. & then I ordered one to take home. It was SO delicious. Also, it’s $1 this week during HH. You’re welcome. Visit the Facebook page here (yup, the salad not the restaurant’s FB page).
