Birthday Progressive Dinner at Trinity Groves

After heading down to Port O'Connor for Memorial Day (I need to get my act together on that massive blog post), Bunny and Nello kept the kids in Austin for a couple days so Josh and I could enjoy a small staycation for my (34th) birthday weekend. 

To celebrate the occasion, a group of our friends joined us out for a progressive dinner at Trinity Groves. It was our first time to visit the unique restaurant district and we had so much fun! The weather was amazing, so we were able to enjoy the string of connected patios all night.

We started with tapas and cocktails at Casa Rubia. Everything was delicious, and my favorites were the cheese board, crispy artichokes, chicken croquettes, and mushrooms.
For the main course, we moved on to Resto Gastro Bistro. The food was good, but a bit overpriced. The highlight was Josh asking if the fish special came with a whole fish or just the "breast," followed by our waiter coining the phrase "fish titties." So much laughter.

The Adolphs had to head to a Rangers game, and Erin had to drink her delicious cocktail faster than anticipated.  

Next we headed to the Kitchen LTO patio for more drinks.
For dessert, we picked up a couple slices from Cake Bar to enjoy on the patio (as if we weren't totally full already).
It was such a fun night, and I can't wait to go back to Trinity Groves to try out more of the restaurant options!

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
