Dry Creek

Dry Creek is part of the Creek Group in my fair city.
Located in The Heights (one of the funkier neighborhoods),
Dry Creek was originally a 1930's gas station.
Now it's a burger joint ... and a good one.

The Creek Group is a charming group of cafes dedicated
to the 'country folk' mentality.
Slow down and listen to some good ol' country and blues
and have a good time. 
It's like fishing without the pole.



Dinner at Dry Creek



THE KIDS are getting married later in the year.
Dry Creek was a good place to get the families together and for
his folks to meet the Auntie (the woman behind the camera)!

His folks.
Can you tell we had a great time?
And, the food was good too!


Dry Creek Mosaic

I had the regular burger with a side of jalapeno and sweet potato fries.
Then there was a West Coast Burger -- turkey burger with avocado and sprouts.
THE KID tried the house specialty--
the Triple Bypass Burger -- cheese, bacon and fried egg.
He liked it .

Good Food.
Good Company.

Thank you to our hostesses:
and 

Wishing YOU well and a joy filled week!

It looks like the meeting was a good one - no one has that awkward, get-me-out-of here look!

Sharon said...

I agree with Pondside and OMG the food looks so good!

Barb said...

Think I'll have the turkey burger - but the sweet potato fries would be a must! So - a family wedding is in the future. In Houston?

Hi Snap,

Congratulations to the engaged couple and the families on both sides! And this looks like such a cute burger joint :) I'm sure my husband and I would enjoy hanging out there and trying some of those delicious looking burgers. Thanks for sharing this post and I hope you have a great weekend!

Dry Creek looks like a good kind of funky fun and great food. We have our special places like this and I always look forward to an evening out. The best is a place we frequent when we are at the beach. Thanks for sharing the article Set Yourself Free. This is a great way to start the day, thanks for sharing
I love the postcard and pic in Remembering Love. How beautiful in so many ways.....

It's great to get together and meet before your big event. We have a wedding ceremony coming next March and we won't be able to meet the groom's mother until the event...yikes. I've met the dad and step mom but my husband hasn't met any of them. Looks like you all had a great time. Hope you have a great week!

Bernie said...

Oh my goodness, that Triple Bypass Burger is giving me a coronary just looking at it! Think I'll have the West Coast Burger thanks.

Dry Creek does look like a fabulous spot to have a get-together and it looks like you all had a great time getting to know one another.

Pat said...

Looks like everyone had a good time. I would like to try the West Coast burger. My son tells me I would loose weight if I visit him in California. Egg white omelets and lots of avocados.

Thanks for stopping by. I think the glads were either picked to soon or in cold storage to long - ended up pitching them.
