Being a food blogger means standing ontop of things in public places. #DoItForTheInsta
It's usually a table or a chair. In this case, it was a golf cart - LOL. I also may or may not have gotten horizontal on the turf in order to take a photo of macaroni and cheese that was sitting on top of a golf tee. Things always get weird, but I love it.
Thanks to PGA, my boyfriend and I were able to taste all of the things at the World Golf Championsips - Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, OH. Oh yeah, and watch some of the world's best golfers compete from literally inches away.
See below for a mouthwatering tour of all things food, drink and views from the tournament!
Iron Chef Michael Symon knows a thing or two about burgers, brats and all things that accompany the meats. The burger pictured below is called the "Thin Lizzy" and it's my alltime fave.
At the Grey Goose Lounge, we we're drankin in style. The signature "Green Monster Mule" was a mixture of Grey Goose La Poire, Cawston Press Ginger Beer and refreshing lime and cucumber juices. The tent was air coniditioned which was a huge plus - and outside there was a patio with Instagram-worthy views of holes 14 and 17.
So, I finally got to try Swenson's for the first time, EVER - and now I know exactly why everyone raves about it. The cheese was super melty on the burger and it was down-right ahhhmazing.
I love wine and friendly people and I found both of those things at the William Hill wine table. My new friend pictured below is from Napa, CA - she gets to travel all over the country and represent the winery. I had a chance to try the chardonnay and it was perfect.
The last time I had any sort of ice cream float = years ago, so this was real exciting. I tried the "Barista Baby" and it was so good that I got a brainfreeze because I couldn't help but chug it. You know those kind of drinks that you can't just take one sip? Well that's what happened. The pink-ish float is their "Maui Wowie" which was more on the tropical side of flavors and it was equally as good.
French fries and macaroni and cheese? Don't gotta ask me twice. The mac was actually a "brown sugar and bacon" macaroni - I've never tasted anything like it and it was so amazing.
I've always been a huge fan of Barrio Tacos. I eat at the Cleveland locations alot and was happy to see that they were at the tournament doing what they do best. We ate chicken and chorizo tacos and obviously pregamed that with chips, salsa and guac.
Lobster rolls are so in right now. Even though I'm allergic to seafood, I was able to snap a photo of this beautiful creation before my boyfriend devoured it. He said it was really good so I'll have to take his word for it!
