I really find it important to maintain my girlfriendships so when I find I have lost contact, I always try to make contact and reconnect. I met my girl Alex when she moved to Tampa from Atlanta for her new job. I truly feel like our friendship was predestined because I met her through another friend whom she doesn’t even really talk to much anymore. She and I clicked immediately and seemed to have a lot in common. Unfortunately life gets in the way and we do not see each other often but I always enjoy her company when we do.
After a few attempts, we scheduled a meetup at the International Plaza because it was convenient for both of us to meet after work. If you know me you know I love happy hour. And she knows me, so happy hour it was. After evaluating all of the possible options, we chose to enjoy happy hour at Taps Restaurant & Bar.
It was a beautiful day in Tampa and Taps has covered outdoor seating which allowed us to enjoy the nice day while people watching and catching up.
We ordered the Bavarian Pretzel, Baked Meatball, Chipotle BBQ Wings and the Mac-N-Cheese.
Since I am trying to lose a little weight I elected not to have a libation but Alex enjoyed a few mimosas (which I neglected to photograph unfortunately).
Each of these items were just $5 so this made for a very affordable and delicious girls night out. After this experience, I can definitely recommend happy hour at Taps Restaurant & Bar.
It was really nice to reconnect and catch up with my girl Alex; it had been way too long. My friendships keep me rejuvenated and grounded so I need this time. We recommitted to meeting up at least monthly, which was our original plan to stay in touch.
