I mean, another one of the list of “to-do before Austin,” that is. This weekend was one of the greatest weekends B and I have had in awhile. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and there were so many things around Bham that we just had to do.
First off, we went to Frontera. It is this cute little shop in downtown that has all sorts of handmade iron works. They have these cute little piggy stakes with wings for the garden, and iron roosters, which of course make me swoon. I will definitely be headed there for unique Christmas gifts. They also have a welding class on Thursdays. The owner said most people just make crosses, because they are the easiest. I’m certainly contemplating it on my own.
Then we went to Hop City. More detail on this tomorrow.
Then for dinner we decided to hit Jinsei in SoHo (south Homewood) on Sunday. They have $9 sushi rolls on Sunday’s as opposed to $15 ones during the week.
We had blackberry cocktails, plus four rolls. The kobe beef roll was amazing as well as the Red Dragon roll. The fish was so fresh, it seriously melted in your mouth.
The service was amazing, as well as was their cocktail selection. They have all sorts of rolls that range from the tame to the adventurous. It is definitely a cozy place, so get there early so you can have somewhere to sit. But even if you have to wait, it’s well worth it.
