Will & I had THE BEST Valentine’s Day adventure.
It was simple. It was chill. And it was so much fun to just have a day spent with each other and no distractions! Plus, I got to be the mastermind behind the plans this year (it’s always been him), so I think I had the most fun of all dragging him around to places that I knew he would love!
Stop #1: The Silver Skillet – An ATL classic since the 1950’s, this diner-esque restaurant is filled with charm and delicious food. We had a solid brunch (of course we did, brunch lovers) and were not even the slightest bit hungry until dinner time. The grits, hashbrowns & eggs were served to perfection. And Will was adventurous and got pork chops… Great choice! My omelette was superb with the tastiest sausage and gooiest cheese. And then there were the biscuits… Holy cow. A spot that’s definitely worth the wait (and definitely best suited for small parties).
Stop #2: The Warhorse Coffee Joint – This super secret spot can be found behind the new West Midtown developments and is a spot that you’ll want to keep a secret. (Not sure why I’m even telling you about it 🙂 ) It was the perfect place for a cup of tea and an hour or so of rest and reading books together. If you do find it, please take cash. It’s donation only for coffee & tea, and I hope it can remain that way!
Stop #3: College Football Hall of Fame – I knew that this would be the perfect surprise outing for my man, and it did not disappoint! From the time you step foot into the CFBHall you are 100% in the game. From running around kicking field goals to announcing College GameDay, it is a blast! And great for all ages of college football fans! My personal favorite part was the ginormous Penley mural that hangs in the main lobby and highlights great players, coaches, and college football moments!
Stop #4: Yeah! Burger – Can’t mess up a great day with a lousy dinner haha. So we went to our ol’ reliable spot Yeah! Burger for a scrumptious meal. The Yeah! sauce is where it’s at (especially if you’re using it for the dipping sauce for your sweet potato fries. Mmmm.) Without a doubt, after a full day in the city it hit the spot!
We had a wonderful Valentine’s Day together! Nothing fancy. Nothing crazy. Just a bunch of fun exploring new places with each other! Hope you and yours had a fantastic day of love as well… But honestly, what day isn’t about love??
