Circa 1800

It was circa 2016 when I tried Circa 1800 for the first time. Game changer.

Circa 1800 is one of my favorite restaurants here in Fay!

First off, I LOVE a good presentation. I am an artist after all.Circa not only comes up with some cool combos of flavor but also takes the time to plate the food in a a way that makes me say “I need an Instagram photo of that”.

I love the cozy atmosphere that makes you feel like you can have a nice, wear-a-dress dinner, or a casual lunch with friends. It’s just so versatile!

I think everyone’s sick of hearing me say, “I’ve never had anything there I didn’t love!” but it’s so true.I love novelty and Circa’s menu is that.

I recently went for a tasting that was themed after the Warhol exhibit going on at Methodist University and I must say, it took my already high opinion of Circa to another level.

The pure creativity. You can see how much they love what they do and are masters at what they do.I can tell you all day how their food is drool-worthy but you just have to go eat here for yourself. Trust me.A sincere thank you to Chef Bill & Circa’s bar manager Tony for putting together such a memorable dinner! Also thank you to Persephone Caviar for collaborating with Circa and giving us all a taste of their product!I’ve included their dinner menu but they also have lunch, brunch, and a nice drink menu too!

Holly Day Fair-It’s a thing

This was my very first year attending the 52nd Holly Day Fair at the Crown.

I was like WHOA.

In the parking lot.

Cause dude, it was madness! I didn’t know this was such a thing. But it really was.

Snagged a parking spot and skipped in the building to find the crown turned into a holiday shopping wonderland.

Vendors lined the entire place. I’m talking everything from woodworking to wine to Christmas ornaments. It was cool.

Honestly, I had so fun much hanging out with my friends and listening to the vendors stories about their businesses and products. It was such a social experience and I have a great appreciation for that.

I love love love supporting small businesses during the holidays.

Not only are you supporting someone’s dream and their family-but typically what you find at a small business is a lot cooler and more personable than a chain. I love finding unique gifts with a story to tell. Nobody wants another pair of socks, guys. Unless they’re cool like Proven by Ruben style. #letsbereal

While this Holly Day Fair wrapped up on Sunday, it’ll be back next year and I definitely think everyone should go check it out. It got me in the holiday spirit and I got to check out some businesses that I didn’t know about!The place was hoppin’ and I’m glad I tried something new this holiday season!
