I'd Live In That Trashcan

Updated: Dec 18, 2019

It's #ThirstyThursday and time to recap the week's most memorable drinks. And I was drinking . . . so they had to be pretty memorable. Right?


Okay, okay, I know it's been a few weeks, but all that matters is I'm here now, right?? Don't fret, I've continued doing all the books and all the booze, so we're covered! There have been four books I've completed since the last time we met:


SUIT by BB Easton


ON THE WAY TO YOU by Kandi Steiner


THE HANDMAID'S TALE by Margaret Atwood


I CAN BE A BETTER YOU by Tarryn Fisher


The books have all been devoured and I've found the perfect cocktail to pair them with, buuuuut . . . I haven't exactly purchased all of the ingredients for the drinks. So, my short #sipnopses (see what I did there, eh?) will have to be posted at a later date!


Anyhoo . . . drinks. Dranks. Drunks.


McCray's Tavern in Lawrenceville, GA

There was A LOT of drinking the past two weekends. And there's more to come this weekend!


My birthday was on the 5th, and like any smart woman would, I've been celebrating all month! It doesn't hurt that I also bought a house, so I can tie in the whole housewarming celebration thing as well.


The weekend of August 10th, was all about #wine and birthday #shaynanigans.


#AtlSummerWineFest at City Winery hosted by Atlanta Wine Festivals

The bffl (alana over at Solely Living) and I attended the Atlanta Summer Wine Festival at City Winery. The event was hosted by Atlanta Wine Festivals and it was spectacular!


They had over fifty wines, ciders, and beers to try and oh my my my were they delicious!


The atmosphere was great and the company was better. I'm not sure how many wines I tried, but at some point I ended up with a crown on my head, I slid down a big slide, ate a turkey leg, and became so cool I wore my sunglasses inside.


The drinks were complimentary once inside (included in your ticket price), but you did have to purchase for extra any snacks you wanted to dig into.




There were two sessions:


Session One 12 pm - 4 pm

Session Two 6 pm - 10 pm


We attended session one . . . because . . . #daydrinking


The event was great and I'll definitely be attending next year!


This is how the night progressed . . .


Don't worry . . . there's more!


This past weekend, I hosted my first of two housewarming partaaayys. My mom, grandmother, sister, and of course, bffl came over to the hizzy and we had some snacks and opened presents and then made our way to McCray's Tavern in downtown Lawrenceville.


McCray's has a variety of drinks and there were so many to choose from!


I opted for the Irish Trashcan because . . . that name? Can't go wrong there, am I right?



McCray's Tavern

Irish Trash Can

Deep Eddy Vodka, Triple Sec, Peach Schnapps, Blue Curacao, Red Bull


This drink was just the right amount of sweet and tangy and it kept me super energetic! We all know I need help with that.



Bffl went with the Pineapple Ecstasy! I had a sip and it was pretty tasty. Served in a martini glass with a cherry at the bottom, the Pineapple Ecstasy was pretty in the looks department as well.


McCray's Tavern

Pineapple Ecstasy

Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Pineapple Liquor, Fresh Pineapple Juice


My sister opted for a classic cocktail: Sex on the Beach.


This beverage is perfect for the summer. A concoction of fruits and liquor? How can you beat it?!


McCray's Sex on the Beach was a little sweet for my taste, but my sister loved it and definitely recommends it for anyone who loves a fruity cocktail.

Sex on the Beach

Deep Eddy Vodka, Cran, Peach Schnapps, Fresh OJ



McCray's is definitely one of the great spots I've discovered since moving to Lawrenceville.


Set in Lawrenceville's downtown, this American Pub has a great atmosphere. You can enjoy great appetizers, like their Tavern Chips and Big A$$ Pretzel, to classic entrees like a City Caesar Salad or their delicious hot wings. You'll of course have to take sips of one of their amazing cocktails, drafts, or wine (or all three . . . who am I to judge?). Seriously, they have a lot of options! If the three drinks described above aren't to your liking, I'm sure you'll find something to snag!


Well that's all I've got for the past two weekends. I could get into the stories of what happened after these events, but we should definitely be friends first. Come follow me on all the social media and let's be social!

That's all for this week! Happy #ThirstyThursday and I'll catch you next time.
