Cheers to the freakin' weekend, man. Well, it's still Thursday. We're still very close, though. ONE MORE DAY! Have any cool plans? Were you planning on trying out the chicken wings that Zombie Burger added to its menu last week? I went and tried out three of the flavors. If you're feeling froggy, leap at the brown sugar wings. Those were my absolute favorite. The Carolina Mustard BBQ and the Southside ranch? I didn't like those as much. (More on that later.) For now, trust me and go with brown sugar. Now for the moment you have been waiting for (and don't forget to tell a friend to subscribe here)...
Yes, La Mie Express has macarons. Yes, those little things are delicious. You can get the rainbow-colored ones by the boxful ($7.95 for 7 or $4.95 for 4). But there's more, though. You should try the lemon bars and fresh fruit tarts, too. Can you tell that I have a BIG sweet tooth?

“I love the community here and the relationships I’ve built here. These people are some of my best friends and to get to see them every week is pretty special.” Peggy's feels like home for so many. There's so much nostalgia hanging from the walls. No, seriously. Almost every inch of the ceiling is covered with a patchwork of signed and decorated dollar bills. Eat your heart out, Cheers. Peggy's is the real place where everybody knows your name.
