Friday was Stephanie’s last official day workin’ at UW. She’d stayed on as a post-doc for her graduate advisor after gettin’ her PhD last August, but she’s taking the summer off until she starts her new position at NIST in Boulder, CO in October. To celebrate, we went out and got drinks/snacks at Naked City Brewing up in Greenwood. Naked City has some pretty fancy food… we split an order of french fries with black truffle sea salt, a cup of ginger-carrot soup, and a beet burger. The food was very good, but the portions were small. I also had a Spiced Peaches & Cream Hefeweizen from Laht Neppur Brewing Co. It tasted like peach cobbler. I enjoyed it a lot.
A few of our friends ended up joining us and we hopped over to the bar next door (Bill’s on Greenwood) to catch the end of the hockey game. The food at Bill’s was much more unassuming (and much greasier); I was still hungry, so I ordered their buffalo chicken flat bread pizza (with bacon!). Although it was only eight bucks, it was huge and came with A TON of delicious, salty, tangy, high-quality Roquefort. I was happily surprised. The food+drinks+friends+hockey combined to make for a lovely celebration evening. Hooray!
