Weekend Wrap Up

Friday


via Yelp
Rach and I are whiskey girls so we jumped at the chance to try the new bar Irish Whiskey Public House on Friday night.  I have mixed feelings about this place.  It's teeny-tiny and the way the tables are set up makes it an extremely tight squeeze when trying to get to the bar.  They also didn't turn on any music until about 10:30pm which was definitely disappointing   The cocktails were a little on the pricey side at $10 a pop but they were delicious.  I tried Big Fellas and Brotherhood...I liked them both but if you're looking for something with a punch go for the Brotherhood.  The service was excellent and the bartenders were very friendly.  Overall, I'd say the atmosphere and the extensive whiskey menu make this a great place to take a date or catch up with a friend.  I wouldn't recommend it for a large group or for a wild night out.

Afterwards we headed to Chinatown and hit up two of our favorite spots, Rocket Bar and Iron Horse.  It was great to have some girl time and to put ridiculous songs on the jukebox like Bust A Move and Good Vibrations.

Saturday

Wes Welker's Playoff Shirts
The Patriots absolutely CRUSHED Tim Tebow on Saturday night and we were obviously at Murphy's to watch it happen.  We showed up an hour before kickoff and there was a line down the block to get in.  It was absolutely insane!  We're there almost every week and I've never seen it even close to that crowded before.  Luckily, we got in without a problem and got an excellent standing place right near the bar, the TV, and all the regulars.  We had a blast cheering on the Pats, heckling the Broncos, and yelling all our Patriots' chants.  I'm already excited to go back for the game on Sunday!

Sunday

via Yelp
Since none of us had to work today, we planned a whole day of hanging out and bar hopping on Sunday.  We started our morning off at RedRocks for a phenomenal brunch.  Bottomless mimosas+bacon and artichoke scrambles+all my GW loves=perfection.  RedRocks is a small restaurant and there's usually a wait.  If possible, go with a group since they only take reservations for parties of 6 or more.


After brunch, we moved over to Lou's City Bar to watch all the football games.  Not having a stake in any of the games made it so much fun.  We were heckling everyone, laughing hysterically, and enjoying each other's company.  The staff at Lou's were super friendly and were great about us hanging out there for almost 8 hours haha.

How did you spend your long weekend?

  1. Haha I've been to Rocket Bar! I love going out in Chinatown! One of my best friends lives right in Metro Center, so whenever I come visit, I always stay with her and we go out in Chinatown!
