All summer long I wanted to do one thing, well a lot of things, but one thing in particular. I wanted to go to Townhouse in Birmingham and eat outside. But every time I wanted to do this throughout the summer months, it was sweltering out and I decided not to die of heat exhaustion just to fulfill my summer bucket list.
So on the last day of August, the weather was perfect, seriously perfect, and I went to get my hair done so it was looking good, and Mom and I headed to Townhouse.
We sat outside and it wasn’t even buggy. Our waitress, Lily, greeted us kindly and before long we ordered the Vietnamese Spring Rolls for an appetizer – the perfect light and refreshing start to the meal. Then Mom had the classic Townhouse burger (I stole some of it too), which is a thick patty with caramelized onions, melted white cheddar, and a buttery brioche bun – aka the perfect burger. I built my own salad with the red onion vinaigrette and devoured it, loving the freshness.
Plus, that let me save room for dessert. I have been dying to try their Cake Cake Cake, a funfetti masterpiece that dare I say is at least as good as Momofuku’s, if not better, and something I want to eat all the time. We also tried the strawberry shortcake trifle, and loved it with the jammy strawberries and whipped cream.
For our fun night out, I chose a casual cool outfit pairing my classic Victoria Beckham lbd with a fun Chanel pearl belt and bright blue wavy heel Christian Louboutins. I was super comfortable and felt like I was sitting somewhere in California, all my dreams having come true, just loving life. And really, that night, and many, many others this summer, I did just love life.
