We decided to go to the Bishop & Firkin because they have some pretty good veggie selections on the menu, a half decent wine list and pool tables.
Here are Michelle and I playing a round. Neither one of us is a shark by any stretch of the imagination, but we like to play and have fun doing it.
Notice the orb on my back? Weird, eh? I had another photo of Michelle and there was one way up on the wall behind her. Could it be spirits in the pub?
We had a couple of games with the guys and then they decided they wanted to play video games.
Now we were starting to get a bit hungry. One thing I love about pub grub is making a meal out of appetizers. Jim and Joe are omni-men while the ladies are veg-heads. The guys got some chicken wings - passed on that photo-op. There were also some sweet potato fries with chipotle mayo that were gone before I could get my camera out of it's case.
I ordered vegetarian spring rolls with a hot chili sauce for dipping. These are one of my favorites.
Always crispy, always tasty.
This is hot spinach and artichoke dip. OMG!! This was so friggin' good. I could have bathed in it! I'd love to find a similar recipe to make at home. I'm going to do some searching to see what I can find. Does anyone have a recipe they would be willing to share? Please?
Their house wine was Mission Hill, so I had a glass of the merlot. It was pretty good for a house wine selection and the price was very reasonable.
While relaxing after we ate we decided to play trivia. You know the game you play at bars - used to be called NTN, now it's Buzztime. Well, Carrie was smokin' the competition and then we got the sweetest question:
Hey Kleo!! Look!
I answered lightening fast and scored 1000 points on this baby. Woo-Hoo! When all was said and done, I reigned supreme.
