The Perfect Sunday Afternoon

I think I have found the perfect Sunday afternoon activities. 

After a great night with friends at Tony's house in Plymouth, Sunday needed to be a day of relaxation! Damian, Eric, and I headed to Lake Nakomis for a few hours to catch some sun. It was the perfect temperature to just sit in the water and enjoy the thousands of little kids running around. Working in an office all week has caused me to miss the outdoors a lot, so I'm always craving some sun time. On our way home, Damian's parents called to see if we wanted to have dinner with them at Sea Salt Eatery. I've wanted to try this place for a long time so I was very eager to go. Sea Salt Eatery is located in Minnehaha Park, right next to the falls. 

The way this place works:
1. You wait in a line (we waited about 30 minutes)
2. Order and take a table number
3. Sit outside in any outdoor area around the place
4. Eat delicious seafood from Costal Seafood that is flown in fresh daily

What could be better? 

The great thing about this place is that they serve beer by the pitcher and full bottles of wine, have live music and is home to the cutest puppies in minneapolis. The food was phenomenal, which is saying a lot because seafood and Minnesota are not generally used in the same sentence.

Heres a run down of what we ate. 

Damian had the fish po' boy served with a pickle and slaw.

I had the crab cake sandwich, which was probably one of the best crab cakes I've ever had!

On top of these, the Ahi burger, the fish tacos, and the peel and eat shrimp that his parents had were all delicious. The one downfall of this place: don't go there if you are in a time crunch. We arrived there around 5:45pm and didn't finish eating until almost 8 because this place was so popular!

On our way back to the car, we checked out the falls!

Hope you had a great weekend!
