The HUGE weekend of July 27

I told y’all this weekend was going to be big! Here it is in a nutshell:

Of course, Longboard’s Taco and Tiki officially opens Friday at 5pm 

Schmitt Furniture is throwing a big birthday bash at the amphitheater! 8-11pm
Wicks will be serving pizza by the slice
Beverages by Keg Liquors 
And entertainment by The Juice Box Heroes! 

See everyone there! And Longboard’s afterwards! 

Vitage Style and Designs is having a huge summer clearance!

Such a great cause! Stop by Wicks for lunch, or before the concert! 

Roadrunner Kitchen will be open Saturday from 11-2! They are not normally open on Saturdays so this is a treat! Perfect time to go try out the new menu items!

HyperCars is having a Cruise to Cars and Coffee Saturday 8:30-9:30 

Innerspring Yoga had a cancellation in all four workshops so they have one space left! 

Looking ahead to next week.... 

We can not wait for Pints&union to open Wednesday!!!

Longboards Taco & Tiki Soft Opening

I have been waiting for this moment for what, almost a year? 

It’s finally time! I was so fortunate to be able to go to the soft opening tonight. And it was everything I wanted and more. 

Let’s start with the drinks! (Of course) 

The frozen house margarita 

Creamy Colada 

If I had to pick, the frozen margarita. But y’all know how I feel about my frozen drinks. The Creamy Colada was delicious, nice dessert drink. 

Now the food. 
Chile Quillies


As if Guacamole wasn’t extra enough, Longboards has made their quac extra extra. This extra girl loved it, and so did my guacamole loving toddler. The chips are different. I’m a fan for sure, my husband not so much. 

The Chile Quillies- amazing. It was something I wouldn’t normally order but I wanted to try something different. No regrets. 

Now the tacos.... 

We tried the Korean BBQ, Carne Asada and the Mahi Mahi. All perfection. Choosing one would be like choosing my favorite child. But if I had to, the Mahi Mahi. My first bite was one of those moments that you almost cry because it’s so good. What? You all don’t cry over food? I love food that much. Especially tacos. 

The best for last. I’m serious. 

The house made churros with miso caramel. Y’all I can’t. Thank you Wrege for making sure we ordered these. Definitely my favorite. 

Food: A+ 
Atmosphere: A+ 
Drinks: A+ 
Service: A+

We did have to wait a little bit for our food, but it was a soft opening. It takes time for new places to get in their rhythm. If I see anyone give a bad review on a new restaurant for waiting, well you can just suck it. 

Make sure you take a bathroom selfie!

Kelly’s 5 Summer Must Haves!

Kelly’s 5 Summer 
Must haves! 

Honestly, it was hard to choose just five... but here they are... 

1. Earrings with tassels. I’m obsessed. I love them all including these from DADA (located on Pearl Street) 

2. I’m white y’all. And I’m heading to the beach soon. Tanning beds are bad and so is the sun. This self tanner from Body and Brow (located in the Underground Station) is a lifesaver! 

3. When it cools down and you want to spend time outside but you don’t want the nasty bugs or an ugly citronella candle, this candle from Madhouse (located on Spring Street)  is stylish and does what it needs to do. 

4. This wine glass. Momma loves her mommy juice. And she wants to look cute while drinking it. Regalo (corner of Pearl and Market) has the cutest stuff! 

5. Nothing says summer like pina colada and the Grain House (located off Main Street behind Floyd County Brewing) has the best frozen drinks! I love them so much! 

Let me know your favorite by commenting on the Instagram or Facebook post! 🌞🌞🌞
