Sometimes, we all need a break from the routine and a break from the kitchen. Sometimes, it’s fun to see what’s going on in other people’s kitchens, even if those kitchens are in a restaurant. And sometimes it’s fun just to go out and be with other people who are having a good time too. I went out with my friends Janet and Bob the other night, and we did just that. Things got really chaotic and hectic at the house, and I ran out of time to cook. Bob had been helping us with some home projects, so as a way of saying “thank you” I told them I would treat them for dinner, and the restaurant was their choice. We went to Lucky Pie, which is a cool, trendy restaurant in Downtown Lousiville, CO, about 15 or so minutes from out house.
Lucky Pie is a family owned and operated restaurant, famous for it’s original pizzas. It has it’s own garden where they grow most of their own produce, a fun patio with picnic benches where everyone eats family style, and a bar that offers 21 different cold brews on tap, most of which are local beers. Bob was very excited about that part. We ordered a couple of unique pizzas, and enjoyed them with our cold, delicious libations and good conversations. We ordered two different kinds of pizzas. One was a BLTP or a bacon, lettuce, tomato pizza, that used a bold and spicy bacon on top. The other pizza was a spicy salami pizza with mozzarella. Both pizzas were very tasty, and truly unique. It was a fun, impromptu night out with good friends. Life is pretty darn good!
