Most people believe the weekend starts on Friday but last weekend mine started on Thursday.
After work Patrick met me at the Berghoff Oktoberfest to grab some tasty food and listen to the band, Sixteen Candles. As you can tell by the name they are an 80’s cover band. It was great to hear the 80’s tunes again:
I opted for the Bratwurst with Kraut and old style mustard:
I’m not a big fan of bratwurst but this was good. Probably because it had a ton of kraut, love the kraut!
Oktoberfest is usually a big beer drinking event. I sorta took part. I had a rootbeer:
I started with a bowl of Sweet Potato Soup. My first ever sweet potato to pass my lips.
P and I split the Garlic Whipped Potatoes:
and the Macaroni and Cheese:
My entree was the Filet Mignon with a blackened crust:
Verdict: The food was good. Nothing spectacular but my taste buds were happy. The service was fantastic! Our waiter was very personable and he made sure we had everything we needed.
Saturday at 11:00 am I met up with 6 other ladies for the Chicago Blogger Brunch at Yolk. Yolk is a very popular place to brunch it up in Chicago. They are known for their creative twists on traditional breakfast dishes.
Once the food was delivered to our table the blogger photo shoot began. I have many reason why I enjoy dining with food bloggers and one of them is the fact that I will never be the only one taking photos of my meal;)
Everything on the menu looked fantastic but I was able to narrow it down to the perfect dish. Bacon Waffle & Eggs – Crisp bacon mixed throughout the batter and topped with 2 eggs:
Great food with a great group of bloggers!
