Thirsty Fellow & Reasons to Be Pretty

I finally got to the (relatively) new pizza and beer joint, Thirsty Fellow, a couple weeks ago.  It's located near the Colonial Center, and the atmosphere is pretty chill.  Lots of books lining the walls, pretty dark, and really big!

My friend and I ordered a large pretzel for appetizer--it was just what one would expect and want from a big pretzel; a bit of crunch on the outside, but doughy and warm on the inside, served with that fake cheesey sauce that I love with a pretzel!

For my meal I ordered a pizza with olives and red onions.  The crust was relatively thin--definitely not too thick, sort of a thinner Labrasca's-type crust.  I enjoyed it both that evening, and the next day cold for my lunch--(which is always the true test for me--I often enjoy pizza better cold than hot).

My friend had a loaded hotdog and a side salad.  She is a hotdog connoisseur, and said it was quite tasty.  Click here for more of their menu.  (They also have a Brunch menu).

So there you have it--Thirsty Fellow was a winner in my book.  And everything is really affordable.

Last night I went to Saluda's for dinner with my husband, mother-in-law and aunt.  The food was amazing!  I haven't been there in quite sometime; it is pretty fine dining after all, and that doesn't often fit into our budget.  But if you need an amazing place to take a date and you're trying to make a good impression, I highly recommend it.  (Sorry no pictures; left the camera at home).

After an early dinner, we headed to Trustus Theatre to see Reasons to Be Pretty.  The show runs through next weekend, and it has gotten a good review in The Free Times- read it here.  We all really enjoyed it--go support local theater.

Hope everyone has a wonderful, chilly weekend!  I am so excited to finally wear winter clothes and have fires in the fireplace; we had our first of the season this week and it was divine.
