Last weekend my sons Anthony & Jeremy, Jeremy’s wife Susie, and I went out to the Zephyrhills Brewing Company. They had a food truck from Loli’s Mexican Cravings restaurant. By the way, the building the brewing company is in used to be a bank.

There was a live (very loud) band and the room was packed so we sat in a room off the main bar. Much more quiet so we could talk.

Since I don’t drink alcohol, I ordered a non-alcoholic Spruce Beer from the bar, which tasted much better than I thought it would. From the food truck I ordered a Chicken Taco and a Chorizo Taco. Both were very good.

After we finished eating we sat for a while and talked, then went back to Jeremy & Susie’s house and played Monopoly Gamer. I was Donkey Kong.

I love spending time with my kids, and all four of us had a lot of fun!

My Chorizo Taco ~ Yummy!

I told you it used to be a bank

I don’t know why I didn’t take more photos. Next time I’ll try to remember.

  1. First — yummmm on the tacos!. Love it that the vault is still in the building. Sounds like you all a great time.

  2. Good that you were having too much fun to take a lot of photos! Tacos are so great.

  3. Good food with your family = good times! We have a restaurant in town with the old bank vault in back. Actually our office was in that building for a time. Originally the Bishop Trust building.

  4. Sounds like a fun time with family. Your chorizo taco looks delicious.
    My Saturday Snapshot post features Discovery Park and Chittenden Locks (Seattle).

  5. Family and good food is a perfect match.

  6. Sounds like a fun day! I find on really fun days I’m terrible at taking pictures because I’m caught up in the moment. That Chorizo taco looks ridiculously good!

  7. I LOVE games. Monopoly gamer? New one to me. Checking it out 😉

  8. The Chorizo taco does look great! Vicki, it sounds like you had a wonderful time with your family.

  9. Sounds like a great time with the family! The food looks yummy, too.

  10. Sounds and looks like it was a wonderful time!

  11. I love getting tacos when I’m eating out, because they’re a pain to make at home! I try to take photos right away, early on, because I usually forget later on, too! My family makes fun of me for taking photos of the food, but you never know when they might come in handy for a Weekend Cooking post!

    • I love making tacos at home but had never tried choizo tacos. Everyone in my family is used so to me taking photos of food, but sometimes one of them will make fun of me.

  12. What a fun time – both the restaurant and getting together with family to play games. Those are handsome boys you have there, a family photo is great!

  13. Good food and fun with the family is priceless. The bank converted to a restaurant sounds like a great use of space and an unique experience. Glad you enjoyed the day!

  14. It sounds like you had a super fun night. Isn’t it rewarding to have grown kids that you like to spend time with? A food truck is something I wish our small town had on a regular basis. One comes occasionally to our Farmer’s Market, but always on the days I don’t visit.

    • The food truck was from a restaurant in Tampa, an hour drive from us. I don’t think we have any in our town. It’s really small too. A nearby flea market has a lot of permanent food trucks that stay in the same spot and don’t leave, but I’ve never noticed one just come for a day and leave. Yes, it is very cool to have grown kids that love spending time together.

  15. We have a classroom here at the university that is literally called The Bank Building because it used to be a Home Savings. It still has the vault too.

    Those tacos look mighty good.

  16. It’s a good thing you don’t drink alcohol. You got have gotten smashed, and then misbehaved and ended up locked in the vault! 🙂 Are you in the Zephyrhills area? We go through there on our way to Tampa as I refuse to drive I-75 anymore. Takes us a little longer but it’s worth it.

    • That’s funny Lowell!

      Yes, I live near Zephyrhills, but am moving there in a month or so. The traffic there is crazy when the snowbirds come. In 2015 there was a news article that said the population increases in winter months by around 30,000 people. It’s probably more than that now. That’s a lot of people for such a small town.
