We have another first everybody! This first is actually a tie breaker. Our GULPER’S (yes there are 2) of the week are Albemarle Baking Company and Citizen Burger Bar. Two of Cville’s dining gems!
Just over a week ago, and actually this past Monday as well, we had a wintery white haze dump a mass amount of coldness over Charlottesville, Virginia. Although being cooped up in your apartment with multiple episodes of New Girl and Dawson’s Creek on T.V. can be relaxing and enjoyable, (especially with your sistasista), let’s be honest here, it can also be straight up mind-numbing.
Luckily, we decided to strap on our snow boots and long underwear and trudge into the wintery mess…
Although building this was a snowy day delight….
We decided to adventure on. A few ice bites and numb toes later…we sought and we sure did find to our surprise:
Citizen Burger Bar AND Albemarle Baking Company were..yes..that is right.. OPEN. A hot warm sticky bun and a tummy warming beer? Ohhh sweet mother of GULPS, we were floating on the many clouds of nine.
Albemarle Baking Company greeted us with the aroma of freshly baked goods from scones to macaroons. We were the only customers there, but boy was it a joy and a extra beat to the heart to have a warm baked good at your finger tips. I am pretty sure we were both salivating at the arrangement of pastries and cakes.
We traveled onward my friend..
Citizen Burger Bar gave us a happy ending to the white noise through a honey blonde ale and a hells bell. Oh what a beer can do for one’s soul. We were comfy, cozy, taken care of, and deliciously consumed by the warmth and cheer that this little Burger Bar fave offered us.
So cheers to you Citizen and ABC! We smile at our snow adventure that wouldn’t have been without your company.
