Friday night I met up with three friends at a newer eatery in Hollywood called The Fat Dog. Located on Fairfax, near Melrose in the Fairfax District, it's a great location to grab a casual meal over a few beers. Happy hour prices were great for the area and they had one of my new favs Allagash, which I'm hooked on thanks to my IRL blogging bud Tiffany of Polka Dotted Cats. For dinner I ordered the flight which consisted of three mini burgers. Unfortunately the meat was over looked and didn't taste the greatest. Despite that, I'd def go back and try the food again. Maybe it was an off day for the chef.
Saturday was spent at lunch with my dad for an early Father's Day celebration at Eureka! in Downtown Claremont. I had been once but my dad had never been and since he brews his own beer I thought it would be a great choice. We both randomly selected beers that we knew nothing about and they were OK, we wouldn't order them again though. We both decided to order "interesting" burgers. He got one wrapped in a tortilla with guacamole and mine was featured an egg, bacon, and jalapenos. We both liked our burgers but what we didn't like was the fact that we were overcharged for beer that was on the happy hour list, and we were told we had the choice of several sides with our burgers but in actuality if you got anything but fries you are charged extra.
The Young Hollywood Awards were also part of my weekend, but that recap is coming tomorrow. Stay tuned to learn about my night filled with fabulous people like the flawless Ginnifer Goodwin! Come back Tuesday to read all about it!!
