Last weekend, my best buds and I had a “staycation” in Lavalette. No kids, no hubs, no computers which resulted in me wandering around from room to room in the house wondering what the heck to do with myself. But, once I got acclimated with the offline world (as I clutched my blackberry) I was able to relax and have a really great time with some really hilarious women.
On our first night, we ventured out (via taxi) to Hemingway’s in Seaside Heights.
I had heard really great things about Hemingway’s from several people. When I tweeted that I was going there, I got replies telling me the pizza was very good and so was the sushi.
I will not say the food is anything super special, but its pretty darn good. We didn’t partake in the sushi that night but the pies were excellent and we sampled a few other appetizers off the menu. Everything was very tasty. I would not say Hemingway’s is a place to go for gourmet food. It’s more a destination for a really good time. It’s surprising actually. The space is huge. They have 6 pool tables in a very “upscale” area with big screen TV’s and a bar that overlooks the open kitchen. There is a second bar that also overlooks the pool room which hosts several dart boards. This is not your typical dive pool hall place, believe me. For a great night out with a group of friends, this is the perfect place.
By Sunday when the 6 of us strolled to breakfast our jaws were literally sore from laughing all weekend. Oh, yeah, and I got my butt kicked in darts, but that’s another story. (Revenge will be mine, Jenny.)
