This is completely my fault. First I had never heard anything about JR Bently’s, then I didn’t read the menu first and of course I never order pub food. The only reason I did not get Fish & Chips is because I don’t regularly eat fried food.
So the situation just started off wrong.
I was asked to come have lunch as a portion of the proceeds would go toward Arlington Proud and then for charity I always order higher priced items. We even got an appetizer! Some of this money we’re spending goes for a good cause!
I really had no business ordering salsa from a pub. This was my fault, I was just hungry. Not terrible, but not great. It was fine. I’m not used to fine salsa. My mom makes one of the most amazing salsas and most of the time I never order chips & salsa out of pure respect.
Iceberg lettuce. The cheese made up for it? I didn’t order any ranch because I didn’t want empty calories.
I ordered on the side for the bake potato but it was on top. Already disappointed I just asked for the A1, there was no rub or marinate. The baked potato made up for everything. Ordering the toppings on the side was a bad move anyways, I ate all of it.
THIS IS WHAT I SHOULD HAVE ORDERED! Aaron Rockabitch just ordered what you order at a pub and let me have a taste and now I know. I also did not order any alcohol. I should have just went to Sweet Tomato and ordered an Arlington Proud hoodie.
SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO EAT FRIED FOOD FOR SATISFACTION REASONS ONLY! Do not go into a pub and order a salad.
Have you ever tried to avoid a certain food then end up eating a less than appetizing meal?
Took these pictures at the opening of the completed murals. It was wonderful to see all the work that was put in as well as get to meet the range of artists, who it was their first public to prolific artists, one I have already interviewed before!
I see this space being used by the community. I even decided to include MiMOSA’s Block Party in this flipgram because it’s block party space.
Arlington Proud will be doing more public space art projects & are open to ideas. I barely made it to the opening ceremony to hear Aaron Bickle talk about ideas that they want the public to suggest.
Can’t wait to see what other projects will happen! I went to James Bowie high for 3.5 years and spent time going to weeklies at Rack Daddies, Division One, Monte Carlos then a couple of warehouses from 1998 till 2003 so Arlington, Tx has a special place in my heart. I found out that FIVE people have gotten the Arlington Proud tattoo, even Mark Joeckel said he wanted one. I REALLY WANT AN ARLINGTON PROUD TATTOO and I always swore I would never get inked! This city was just a place that I have such great memories of working at Chicken Express & la Madeline on Cooper Street, walking home from my 1st day of high school, throwing all those parties on Lake Arlington, driving my red convertible in the summer, being in band/colorguard/jv cheerleading/tennis team, all those friends who all moved all over the world, just such a busy growing period of my life. Just a great day to be there this past Saturday.
