last weekend was relaxing and beautiful down here in georgia, and i spent as much time of that perfect spring saturday outside as i could. phillip came over to the condo where i was happily chatting with my neighbors chris and suzy and their sweet little pup shorty. the trees in our courtyard were providing the perfect amount of shade, and the slight breeze kept us cool. we cracked open some bud lights and caught up on the latest. it’s wild how much you don’t see your neighbors when the colder months are here. i felt like i hadn’t visited with those two in months!
as the early evening crept in, i could feel my stomach rumbling. we weren’t in the mood to cook, so phillip and i were trying to figure out where we should go for dinner. we knew we wanted to dine alfresco since it was such a gorgeous night, and with that must-have, chris and suzy were quick to recommend smokebelly bbq just down the street off east andrews. i’d gotten their flyers and coupons in the mail after their grand opening but hadn’t yet given it a visit. suzy was armed with several suggestions, and since i never turn down good bbq, we knew just where we’d be going. her fingers were crossed that we would like it just as much as she did; considering she’d been back several times after first going with chris, it sounded like a pretty good bet.
