food, fun & laughs at The Pearl

I usually don’t do food blogs because I’m not a foodie. Actually I’ve never done a food post. When I go to a restaurant I get the same thing: a cheeseburger, a salad or maybe come boneless chicken.

I went to Comfest this past Sunday and was saddened when I had high hopes of a cold alcoholic beverage at some point and was only offered beer. I don’t like beer.

So, we decided it would be the perfect time to explore the short north for some food and a drink.

When one consistent valet worker suggested we eat The Pearl, we decided to go ahead and check it out.

FIMG_6822irst off, the decor was country chic —> like this Pinterest post. We legit drank water out of mason jars and my friends cheeseburger was presented to her on a wooden plate. The lighting was very dim and intimate yet we didn’t feel uncomfortable with that. It was soothing.

I have always believed the concept of chicken and waffle was odd but I decided to give it try and it was AMAZING!

Southern fried boneless chicken served with warm blueberry sauce and honey.

Can I go back?

I had this with a bottle of JK Scrumpy’s Orchard Grape Gold, Hard Apple Cider – which I got after suggestion from a friend and a failed margarita (their margaritas are VERY strong).

After this delicious meal from a random restaurant, how could you not want to try dessert? IMG_6823

All the waitress said was “Snickers” and I was sold!

This Snickers pie was served with nuts, caramel and a scoop of Jeni’s!

I got this for us to share but it’s safe to say I may have eaten most of it.

Overall this restaurant was amazing and I recommend you all to go check it out.

While we couldn’t find mixed drinks at Comfest, we did find some food, fun and laughs in the short north!

Nights With Nish (NWN): MOB Edition

I’m going to keep this short and sweet because the video says it all…

Saturday I was in the studio with the MOB and got to hear a lot of new material and got an interview and freestyle from Riggz! He is going to be putting out his mixtape this summer titled “Words Unspoken” so pay attention to his twitter for details.

Bizz put down about 3 songs in the first hour I was there (like, WTF!?) and is releasing an EP this summer that is full of BANGERS, personal tracks, poetry, and stories that will really challenge your thought process.

But enough rambling from me….check out this special Nights With Nish webisode and let me know what you think!
