As you probably know by now, I’m all into local events and new experiences! What you may not know was that I was a Girl Scout for years when I was a kid! I had such a great time with friends, learning new things, attuning to the outdoors. So when I found out a local Dallas restaurant was doing a Girl Scout cookie and beer pairing, I figured why not!
One of my best friends is still one of my fellow Girl Scouts, even after all these years, so I called her up to join in my adult Girl Scout adventure. And Giselle, always have the best ideas, said we should dig out our old vests and take a little trip down memory lane while we were at it! Of course that seemed like a perfect idea to me.
The restaurant Luck was hosting this event, located in the fairly new Trinity Groves area of Dallas. It’s all mostly upscale eateries in this Burroughs across the now-iconic Margaret Hunt Bridge so I haven’t done too much exploring here. I was glad to have the chance to learn more about one of the fast-growing areas of my hometown Dallas.
When we got to Luck, they had a Girl Scouts cookie booth set up by a local troop so of course we had to show our solidarity to our Girls and buy a box! Then it was time to head inside and have some beer and cookies.
I got to be honest, I’m not sure the cookies really complimented the beer in three out of four of the pairings. This might be because it’s hard to have an old favorite treat suddenly with beer. Pretty quickly, I ditched the “pairing” idea and just ate, drank, and socialized without following their system.
As it always goes, the socializing part of it made it the most memorable. Giselle and I talked about how hardcore our Girl Scout troop had been (in a great way with actual camping and badge-earning achievements) and and trudged up fond old memories like a bunch of old ladies. As they say, once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout.
