Date 159 - Ho Ho Holiday Hop!

Date: Thursday, December 17, 2015
Type: Out On The Town
Cost: $$
Planned By: Both

Adam and I attended the Legacy Village Holiday Bar Hop for the second year.

The hop started at Granite City where we got a beer mug, drink tickets and a passport. Granite City was packed so we made our way over to Bar Louie for our first drink. I got a martini and Adam got Sam Adams Winter Lager.
Next, we went over to The Melting Pot. They had chocolate covered strawberries which were delicious. Adam got a rum in coke and the bar tender surprised me with a fruity cocktail of some sort that was very good.
The third stop was California Pizza Kitchen. We just had a bite of the complimentary appetizer and got our passport stamped.

The fourth bar was Stir Crazy. I got an Angry Orchard and Adam got Dortmunder. Some lady left her purse on the bar stool so we sat near it for awhile to make sure it didn't get taken. The bar tender couldn't take it probably for company reasons.
Next, we stopped in at Brio Tuscan Grille to just to stamp our passport because it as very busy.

Our last stop was back at Granite City. We each got a beer since it is a brewery after all. I got the Ole Bessie and Adam got the Batch 1000. We were sitting at a large table in the Holiday Hop area and let people sit with us. One of the ladies who sat down was the lady who forgot her purse. She found it and I was very relieved! Then another lady in Granite City gave us two drink tickets that she didn't want. So we got another drink and sat and talked with people for a little while.
After the hop we went over to Chipotle for a very late dinner. Most of the bars were supposed to have food stations for the hoppers, but not many actually did so we were pretty hungry by the end and the Chipotle was delicious and we didn't get Ecoli!

The hop was fun. It was slightly more organized then last year's, and we will probably attend again next year and maybe eat more before going just in case the bars don't provide food again.
