A couple of reasons to love it here
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/five-items/
So, the next few weeks we here in Victoria are invited to partake in what is called Dine Around (http://www.tourismvictoria.com/events/dinearound/). It’s something that takes place every year at this time where restaurants around the city put on $20/$30/$40 menus to attract folks (locals) during the off-season. It’s a fun way to try new places or just go back to the old favourites.
Anyway, that’s one reason it’s nice to live here (not that other cities don’t do this – I’m sure they do). The other reason, however, is that we can walk to many of the Dine Around restaurants due to our proximity to downtown. And this is what we did last night. We even pushed ourselves out of our comfort zone and went someplace new. A place called the Hawk & Hen http://hawkandhen.com/).
Given that this is NOT a restaurant review blog, I am not going to give you a run-down on the meal (just pictures, of course). It was good. Not great perhaps, but good – we did clean our plates! Would we go back again? Sure – I guess so. It definitely is a cool space and the service was very good (almost too efficient…)
And here are a few sights from the walk home. So glad it wasn’t raining and we could walk!!
And now, Sunday awaits!
