Anytime we can grab our tiny family and head to Santa Barbara it’s a good day. Saturday was a free day for all of us and in need of something fun to do out in this gorgeous weather a trip to the Funk Zone would satisfy that itch. When we found out a few weeks ago that our favorite craft beer company, Topa Topa, was opening their second location in downtown SB we had to pop in for a visit (I mean, we already know we love the beer). They’re nestled in between the wine tasting rooms and trendy restaurants that lead you in the direction of the water. I like that they’re almost off the beaten path and was quite impressed with just how large their new space is. I love their Ventura location, but it is on the smaller end – a quality that makes tasting there so comfortable and welcoming. It’s almost a feeling of visiting a friends house for a few beers to unwind (or wind up) from your day. So tasting in such a wide open space with this awesome backdrop of the mountains makes you feel right at home.
You may have noticed my new ink. So proud of this one as the baby fox is reflective of Greyson and the time points to his time of birth. Such a cherished tattoo of mine #momswithtattoos
After our first tasting at Topa Topa we were off to find some food- something vital if you plan to properly day drink. This fun mural was at a small pizza and sandwich shop called The Lucky Penny (and if you’ll notice their exterior walls are made from pennies!). Their pizza was delicious and the hubs got a pulled pork sandwich, which was also pretty tasty. I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for something delicious, quick, and prefer to eat outdoors!
After some food we mosied on over to do some wine tasting at our favorite spots such as Kunin, Santa Barbara Winery, and Municipal Wines. We took our time over the course of the day and it was fun to get out and enjoy what this life has to offer us!
Happy weekend all! What kept you and your family busy this weekend?
