Saturday was another great day in Minneapolis. We got up from our late night around 1130, and the girls and I headed to Key's for lunch in downtown (I think that was the area we were!!). We stuffed our faces and by the time we were finished, it was already mid afternoon. The kitties were all at Mel's house and we needed to check on them....so we went over there to do that and get the rest of our stuff. We had great intentions of doing a little shopping and walking around, but we all ended up kind of crashing for a bit and took little naps. :) I think we all needed them too!!
So, after a quick snooze, we headed back over to Toph's to get ready for the night. Oh...I'm trying real hard to call him "Toph" instead of Chris. He cracked me up because from the minute we walked into his place yesterday, he's been calling me "All Things".....because of my blog and website name. I think it's hysterical. Laura has been "LA", and now I'm going to try to continue to call him Toph. :) Anyways....he had played golf that afternoon, and had few friends over, again, enjoying the nice weather on the patio outside. We took our time getting ready, hung out for a bit, went to say hello and meet one of their friends and neighbors, and then left for a dinner.
We had looked online at the menu at Erte before going, and were all really excited about the selections. When we got there though, our waitress told us that they were closing for a week and a half, and weren't very booked for tonight, but got an unexpected rush of guests for dinner....and so over half of the things on the menu were sold out. Ugh. While we were a little disappointed, our yummy martinis were already tasting fantastic, and we were still able to find items to choose that sounded delicious. And....they were. Crab Cakes, Pork Chop, Filet Mignon, and Risotto, with au gratin potatoes - WOW, yummmmmmy!! We had a little too much food that we even made it back to Toph with some leftovers.
A quick stop to pick him up, and we were off to The Front. They had been there a week or so before and it was awesome, so we thought we'd try it out. Well....this DJ was not as awesome as the last one, so while it was a really neat place, after about an hour, and 3 of us talking to the DJ to see if it was going to get any better....it didn't......we decided to head back to Legends. Ha!
A few other of Toph's friends joined us, and we were back on the dance floor at the local dive bar. Funny too, that the door guys recognized us from the night before - oh boy!! We finished off the night with continuing to do our bodies harm by dancing more!!
After closing down Legends......again.......we cooked up the snackies that we'd gotten the night before and while waiting for them to cook, ripped the rest of the hideous contact paper off the walls in the kitchen. Toph pretended that he wasn't very happy about our destruction, BUT, he's planning on tearing down that wall soon anyways, so we think he might be over it.
It was another great night with Mel in her new hometown. If it wasn't so stinking cold there during the winter months, I'm pretty sure that Laura and I would be lobbying to move ourselves there too. More fun to come with Mel in a few short weeks back in Austin!! We'll keep it nice and hot here for you while you are in MN!
