It's quite simple:
I love date night.
I love hopdoddy.
OK... I'll elaborate a little. hopdoddy is a magical burger bar located on South Congress. They grind their own meat, offer fish and veggie patty options, bake their buns from scratch, handcut the fries and use fresh & organic produce. Not convinced yet? They also have a wonderful beer selection and their cocktails are made from fresh squeezed juice + hand-made syrups. Alcohol not your thang? How about a milkshake - maybe a salted caramel milkshake?!?! (you can still spike your milkshake if you like) If your mouth isn't watering yet, I think there's something wrong with you...

Plus, I didn't think my outfit would really attract attention on SoCo (hippies, hipsters and tourists - oh my!).

It's been awhile since we walked around South Congress, so we decided to take in the sights after dinner - and try to walk off some calories.
I call the following pictures my attempt at being "artsy..."
