Steve by the ocean bubbles. It was the most interesting thing we saw that day so we felt inclined to take a picture :)
I can't believe he agreed to do it, but this is the spot that Steve proposed to me. I probably told him that I'd pose too, but I was the one with the camera :)
During this trip we did something that we've never done before. We visited a new bar/restaurant every day during our stay. Typically we eat and drink at the same places, which is fine, but we wanted to take advantage of the small crowds and low prices. I did some research before we left the frigid cold in Cleveland and found some really great happy hour food and drink specials. We saved some money while also seeing some new places and meeting new people.
Here is the list in order of when we went. Not all of them are new to us, but 9 of the 14 are:
Thirsty Turtle (Karaoke too!) ~ California Dreaming (Still dreaming about it...) ~ LeGrand's (A nice place with $5 martini's & pretty good food) ~ Chuck's Steakhouse ($5 burger & free popcorn, cheese, crackers & nachos!) ~ Overtime Sports Cafe (Went here to watch the Cavs/Lakers game...lots and lots of TV's) ~ Roy & Sid's (Located in Market Commons. A new place with decent food) ~ The Office Italian Workplace for Locals (A long name for a small, but really good place) ~ Longhorn Steakhouse (Their happy hour started at 2pm so we skipped lunch and started there) ~ Greg Norman's Australian Grill (The best food value & great wine for $5) ~ Wild Wing Cafe (Buy One Get One Free Appetizers) ~ Oscar's Sports Bar (The best sports bar. We went here to watch the Cavs game on FSN Ohio) ~ Kracker's (A tiny place inside a gas station. I got a breakfast sandwich for $1) ~ Baron's (The owner is from Youngstown, OH) ~ Malibu Cantina Tex-Mex (Great Mexican food & margaritas)
I know it sounds like a lot (and it is!) but we had a really great time doing it and look forward to visiting some of them again when we return in the summer.
