After the beach we all headed back to the apartment in Glendale. On the way home we stopped at Fresh and Easy. We grabbed a frozen pizza and some ingredients to kick it up a little bit and make it special.
Once we got home, everyone prepared for a night out and I prepared dinner!
I added salt. pepper, garlic salt and prosciutto to the pizza:
After dinner my friends and I went to the Big Foot Lodge. As you can tell from the name, we were working a wilderness theme.
Yep, there was a mechanical bear peeking his head out of a log. It was amazing. Love love love a theme bar.
There was more taxidermy on the walls and smokey the bear signs. There was a fire place and lots of seating. Overall, it had possibly the perfect bar layout. Lots of space, places to sit and not too large. Plus, I’ve been to three bars this week with taxidermy on the walls. Apparently I have a thing for it.
We had heard about the toasted marshmallow cocktail and we knew that we had to try it. It featured vanilla vodka, butterscotch liqueur, Frangelico, and Bailey’s. The crowning glory is a toasted marshmallow which they torch in front of you.
It was pretty good, although very sweet. The Bailey’s was the main flavor that came through. I could also sense the vanilla. The marshmallow was like wise good but very sweet. It was also pretty affordable, in my opinion, for a specialty cocktails ($10). I couldn’t have more than one of these.
My second drink was St. Germain, gin and lime. It was light and delicious. Having St. Germain is major points in favor of the Big Foot Lodge in my opinion. I like a bar that appears dive-ey but in reality can mix a killer drink.
BFL also gets major points for playing good music. Lots of oldies. I danced and sang along. I was in a happy place.
