The Levee opened in Northport in March of this year. It overlooks the Black Warrior River which makes the perfect backdrop. We met up with several of our friends for dinner a few weeks ago. The guys had beer flights and I ordered a Summertime Mojito – a small twist to the traditional Mojito, with a strawberry/lime mixture and Bacardi Silver.
If fried green tomatoes are on the menu, I can guarantee you I will be ordering them. Every restaurant has their own spin on them. The Levee’s fried green tomatoes are served with a vegetable chow chow. The chow chow had the flavor of a sweet and sour sauce. For my entree I had the blackened Mahi Mahi fish tacos with slaw and peach salsa with a side of fries. The tacos were large and tasted good.
Perry, Sarah and I drove to Montgomery to spend the day with Anna on her birthday. The day was filled with mimosas, mani/pedis, sushi, cake, ice cream and a movie. It was a pretty fantastic day.
After our mani/pedis, Seth met us for dinner at Sushi Cafe. I ordered the LA Roll – crab meat, avocado, cucumber and cream cheese and the Zelda Roll – deep fried roll, crab meat, avocado and cream cheese. The sushi was very good.
After sushi we went back to Anna’s for chocolate cake courtesy of Seth and Anna’s Icebox Coffee ice cream but with a Symphony bar instead of toffee. Oh my, this ice cream was amazing! I would say I am going to try and make it but that would not be a good idea. I would eat the entire container…
After cake and ice cream we went to the Capri Theatre. It was built in 1941 and is an independent theater that plays movies not usually in your typical movie theater. We saw Testament of Youth. It was a good movie but super sad. So don’t watch it unless you need a good cry.
On the Saturday (June 27th) before Trey’s birthday, we got a group together to go see a Birmingham Barons game. I honestly couldn’t tell you who won but we had a lot of fun!
Last month was full of birthdays including Drew’s and Jacob’s! Sarah and Perry threw them a superhero party. We watched Marvel movies, went on a scavenger hunt/race and ate lots of yummy food. Sarah’s mom did a great job on the candy table. I attempted a homemade birthday cake. It didn’t turn out as pretty as I had imagined but it was delicious (if I can say so myself). There was too much fun to be had to stop and take photos so this is all I took…
Two months ago Trey and I went down to Mobile for Bobby and Kylie’s baby shower. It was super cute! Ryder was born exactly a month later on June 30th. He is the cutest little guy ever! I really wish we lived closer so I could see him more often.
