There's nothing like catching up with friends, and what better way to do it than over yummy food and drinks? Babalu invited me out to try their newly launched Summer cocktail menu last week and I had a chance to catch up with my friend (and former intern) Caitlin.
My go-to drink when I'm out is a jack and coke, however, I sometimes crave fruity drinks, and if I go to an event where there are craft cocktails for the night, I'll typically go for the one that's a little more citrusy. Basically, I love a good cocktail and I need to get my bartending skills up. Ha!
One of the most anticipated restaurant openings in a while (I was new to the phenomenon and learned that in other cities, people regularly camped outside just to get a bite to eat), I gotta say, Hopdoddy's Burger Bar did not disappoint.
Sometimes, a girl just needs a steak. Last week I got to attend a Friends + Family night at 117 Prime, a new steakhouse that's opening in Downtown Memphis. Taking over the old Belle Bistro location, the fine dining steakhouse and bar has big city appeal with a much friendlier price point.
Memphis Fashion Week is always a cool experience for me, but this year they decided to do something special with a group of Mid-South Influencers and hosted us for sweet brunch at Restaurant Iris, a French-Creole concept restaurant in Midtown by Chef Kelly English.
Located at 600 Monroe in The Edge District (Marshall Arts if you're from Memphis), Edge Alley opened last July and is a stylish, modern cafe and coffee shop. Designed with an open floor plan and community seating, the picturesque space is the perfect spot for both quick meetings with fellow creatives, and chill time with your favorite book and cup of joe.
