Olive, An Urban Dive

January 23, 2013

Today, Hubs and I met our friends, David and Amanda, at Olive, An Urban Dive.  I’ve been dying to try this place, and it did not disappoint!  I ordered the Italian Socca (pronounced “soak-uh”…I made the mistake of calling it “sock-uh”).  It was fab!

I ordered the sweet potato fries on the side, and to keep them GF, they pan fry them rather than using the shared fryer.  I was floored at the dedication to keeping the food GF!  They also cater to Paleo, Vegan and Vegetarian dietary preferences.  And…when I called, they ASKED if I had any dietary needs!!!!  Never do I get that asked of me!  Will certainly return 🙂 Oh, and you can bring your own alcoholic beverages as well to enjoy.  Can’t wait to try it again!

Today looked like this!  Oh, and the high tomorrow is 7 degrees???  Nuts. I’ve never been so cold!

I also took a trip to Home Goods and spotted some nice finds!

Cool dog couch!  Didn’t buy it, but was very intrigued 🙂

But I did buy this!

Blueberry Lemon.  Quite delish.  I drank it with one of these…

I bought these on Amazon.  I realized that I tend to drink more water at restaurants when I’m drinking from a straw.  Thought we’d give it a try!  Hubby has been blowing bubbles in his drinks all night…I’m beginning to regret this purchase!

And for dinner?

Brown rice with thyme and artichoke hearts, broiled salmon and roasted broccoli.  Simple, easy and a win every time!

Have you purchased any neat items lately?  Anything that you can’t live without?  Do share, I’m always looking for great finds!

    I’m not sure if you were a beer drinker before, but if you were , there is good news. They are now making gluten free beer. Follow my blog to find out more information

      I’ll check those out, but I’m a bit skeptical! I’ve seen Omission Ale and I recall it saying it was a Wheat Beer…are you sure it’s a GF one?

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that
    service? Thanks a lot!
