The whole weekend, all the boys were on a mission to find this ridiculously popular craft beer, Hopslam Ale. Apparently it's a seasonal beer and only available for a short while...because of this, literally everywhere was sold out of it. After asking around, word of mouth traveled fast and we heard that it was available at a bar downtown, C Grace, a speak easy, of sorts. The location that this bar is in has been so many things over the years, but this is definitely my favorite of all. The atmosphere when you go down the steps and inside, is so amazing and cozy, it's just like stepping back in time to the prohibition era. The inside is very Gatsybish, with plush couches, chaise lounges and chandeliers. The drinks they serve are all uniquely handcrafted and interesting, I ended up trying a few different things and they were all amazing. After, possibly a few too many fancy cocktails, we ended the fun and crazy weekend with some late night food at Calavera, an Empanada and Tequila bar. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant of this place, since I had never tried empanadas before, but we will definitely be going back.
