Thankfully, I got to sleep in for awhile and then we headed to the Crossroads area to explore. Our first stop was Brewery Emperial for an appetizer and a little beer tasting. We enjoyed some black bean and chorizo meatballs and a flight of beers. Of favorites were the Biscuit and Kristall Weizen.
A delicious flight of beers
After Brewery Emperial, we walked to Tom's Town Distilling Co for a cocktail and lunch. I really liked this place. Ken had been there before for work events, but this was my first time to check it out. I had a Pinky Blitz and Ken had their version of an Old Fashion.

I told Ken that Saturday's festivities were a lot easier than the previous Saturday's!
I thought the bar area was gorgeous!
While we were enjoying our cocktails, Ken told me he had a surprise on our way home. I had no clue what it might be and was very surprised when we turned onto a street and I saw a big E sign and on the door it said Christopher Elbow. Now, if you know me, you know how much I love chocolate and Christopher Elbow chocolates are definitely super high up on my list.
Ken took me inside and told me to pick whatever I wanted. I ended up selecting my own custom box of chocolates and was simply amazed at such a sweet surprise.
Very happy to have gotten to pick my own selection of Christopher Elbow!
Such a thoughtful and sweet surprise.
Saturday was one of those days that I always look back at and smile. I love meandering around town with Ken and just spending the day together.
