Valentine's Day


Hope y’all (I’ve been in the south now for months so the language is wearing off on me) had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and were able to spend it with someone you love. Our day was excellent! The sun was shining, the temperature perfect, I don’t know if it gets much better than that.
The patio at Grape Juice
We got up and got our workouts in so we could spend Valentine’s Day having a late lunch in Kerrville. I had checked out a restaurant/bar/wine shop called the Grape Juice online and it looked like an interesting place for our lunch. I checked the menu online and one of the things that intrigued me were the selection of antelope burgers and quail that was local to Texas. I really like to patronize places that strive to use local products. We’ve been to other restaurants that use local produce, cheeses and local grass feed beef. I truly believe that keeping it local makes for fresher better tasting food and helps local economies. So off we went to the Grape Juice.

Jordan, our server.
We arrived around 2:30 so there were only a couple folks there and they serve lunch until 3. The other draw for John is they have about 20 unique beers on tap. As you may have figured out John is a beer guy and loves to try different crafted brews. An extra treat for both of us is the patio seating. On a beautiful day like today eating on the patio is the best. We each had a couple different beers and excellent meals. John tried the antelope sliders and I had a Mediterranean pasta. For wine lovers out there they also have a great wine list. Our server Jordan was a wealth of information and a very nice young man. We also chatted with the owner on the way out. I’m so glad we found this place.

So if you find yourself  in Kerrville and want a slightly more upscale meal I would highly recommend Grape Juice. Finding these gems as we travel makes life a treat.
Happy Trails.....................

  6. Great picture of the two of you. We passed by Kerrville when coming back from LBJ Ranch but it was getting late and the weather was turning cloudy and cool. Will have to put that on the list for the next time we are in the area.
