Santa Barbara Thanksgiving, Part 2

Local Breakfast







The Bike ride from hell









Lunch at Carlitos!


Mom & Dad get out for a cocktail alone

Neat vintage-y champagne saucers




Seafood beignets at the Hungry Cat

scallop and urchin crudo, asian pear, pickled sweet peppers, sea beans, radish, outrageous!













Day one started early as they all do with breakfast at a local spot a round the corner.  We thought it would be fun to take the tykes on a family 4-seater bike along the ocea.  Not so much.  They started screaming and smacking each other almost right off the bat and everyone who passed us was chuckling.  A super yummy mexican lunch at Carlito's helped.  Me and hubs got out to sneak in a cocktail at Marquee bar where they used old school champange saucers for martini glasses.  It is part of an old theater on State street and very cozy.  Then we all met up at The Hungry Cat for delicious seafood.  We love that place.  After, a short nightcap at the Neighborhood bar, literally a few steps from our condo.  Typical Shellback-style local bar with Pabst being their specialty.  Then a quick drive home and we dipped into the Beaujolais that never got opened on Thanksgiving day.  Fun, relaxing time.
