But this weekend we finally got to celebrate Father's Day with the tickets I bought for Jon to see The Black Keys! Yeah! I scored cheap presale tickets back in June and never thought the day would come that we would finally be going to the show (I do remember thinking...we can leave Ford overnight in December..eek!). I wanted Friday to be special for Jon, to celebrate him as a father but also celebrate him as a wonderful provider for our family. His year is coming to a close and not a day goes by that I am not in awe of the talents God has given him to be successful in almost anything he tries. Is that enough sap for ya? Jon loves music so concert tickets...check....and Jon loves meat. We had the pleasure of dining at Estancia Churrascaria on Friday before the concert, a beautiful Brazilian steakhouse in Austin that offers 15 of the most decadent and delicious meats, an immaculate salad bar, and authentic Brazilian side dishes. It is basically a carnivore's carnival. We had been to Estancia one time before, actually it was the day we found out Ford was a boy, and we were giddy excited to return and fill our bellies with red meat and fried polenta. Never been been to a Brazilian steakhouse? You are missing out! Men walk around with fresh, piping hot meat and cut it to your liking right at your table. You have little cards on your table (one side red, one side green) to let them know you want more meat or are taking a break. I can just taste the filet melting in my mouth!
Not only is the food heavenly but the staff treats every patron like a king. Managers are constantly on the move, asking if there is a certain cut of meat you'd like, more sides, more drinks, how is our meal, etc. The atmosphere was bustling with Christmas parties and celebrations yet it felt intimate at our table. Estancia is open Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and New Years Day if you are looking for somewhere to celebrate!
