Easing Back to Reality After a Vacation

It's hard to get one's feet back down on the ground after a wonderful
and very glamorous weekend in the big city also known as Houston.
David and I celebrated our birthdays last week.  Wasn't it so smart of
us to schedule our birthdays just two days apart?  Because our special
days fell on a Monday and a Wednesday this year, we decided to celebrate
afterwards to extend the fun.  

We tossed around several ideas of where to go.  Because Bentley is 
blind, we always need a place to go that isn't too far away and someplace
that we know will be comfortable and welcoming to him too.  After
some deliberation, we decided upon the Hotel ZaZa in Houston's
Museum District.  If the name makes it sound glam, it is all that.
It's more than that too, it's glam and fun.  Ritzy and comfy.  Most 
importantly, it's dog friendly!!!

We booked ourselves into the Fantastico Suite, which was indeed
fantastic.  A beautiful suite with a large living and dining room
(complete with glam chandelier), a super comfy bedroom and
two large screen televisions.  This was especially crucial to us because
the British Open Golf Tournament was airing all weekend.  Y'all
know that David is Mr. Golf!  Our suite also overlooked the
stylish pool, and the lovely fountains on Main Street.

If you want a glimpse of what this fabulous hotel has to offer,

The hotel was full of stylish and trend setting people and their pets.
A man even checked in with his Great Dane!  Now that's what I call
dog friendly!   We even saw Elvis in the hotel lobby, lol.  Now
how cool is that???

We had delicious meals.  Houston is known for it's exceptional 
restaurants, and never disappoints.  David did some research and discovered
this spot for cocktails before dinner one evening.  I had a delicious Manhattan.
This place is in the trendy and artsy Montrose area.   So many fun places.
The Anvil Bar and Refuge, is the place to go for a vintage cocktail and
expert mixologists who train for two full months before they are
allowed to pour you an adult beverage.  It's also a great place for
people watching.  We were there prior to dinner, so we were able to
sit down to enjoy our drinks.  We were told it gets really swamped
later in the evening.  

Check out the link to this fun spot HERE.  I believe there is one in
Dallas too, if you live up north from the coast.

After all that fun, glitz and glam, I am rather reluctantly getting back to
daily life in our small town.  Life is a bit slower here, but that's okay too
because Houston is only a couple of hours away :-)

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

PS:  Bentley had a great time too!
