Saturdate with Grandma

Posted on September 1, 2016 by under Family, Food and Drink, Things to Do.    

We had a wonderful “day date” with grandma over the weekend. It started with Brian and grandma’s monthly trip to the grocery store. I had to teach Zumba class so I just met up with them at home afterwards.

We decided to take grandma to this new restaurant we discovered a few weeks ago, the Hungry Heart. It’s right next to the Intrust Bank Arena and occupies the space where Jetty’s used to be. The food is phenomenal and the service is fantastic. I wish we could go there more often.

By the way, I caught a Goldeen while we were waiting for our food. The little fella was right in front of grandma. Besides Pokemons, there were also lots of people milling about downtown because Saturday was Crawl for Cancer day. Grandma got to see some of the groups as the massive pub crawl commenced.

Here are some pictures of our food. Grandma wanted to go with something light so she just ordered a salad.

I got the 2015 Wingapalooza “award winning” wings. I had them the last time and they were amazing so I had to get them again. Incidentally, I missed this year’s Wingapalooza due to another commitment. I’m not sure how they fared this year.

Brian got the pulled pork sandwich again. He really enjoyed it last time.

I also got an order of fries for me and grandma to share because Brian loves their fries so much that he doesn’t share his. I didn’t get a picture of the pulled pork eggroll thingies that we had as our starter because our server forgot them. I was just going to cancel that order because then we were going to get full on our meals but she said she had already put them in. The eggroll things came shortly after we started eating our food. She was nice and didn’t charge us for them, though.

After lunch, we were off to the Wichita Art Museum to see the Chihuly Drawings exhibit. As WAM members, Brian and I saw the exhibit when it first opened but we were waiting until the weather had cooled off enough to take grandma.

As an added bonus, we also got to see the Jesse Alexander: The Golden Age of Motorsport exhibit which consisted of some amazing photographs.

It turned out to be the perfect day for a “day date” with grandma. I’m so glad our schedules worked out and we got to go.

The Chihuly Drawings exhibit ends on September 11 and the Jesse Alexander exhibit ends on October 2. Be sure to swing by the Wichita Art Museum this month to check them out. You don’t want to miss these!
