After-Taste: There is nothing better than a good brunch. Actually there is. A GREAT brunch. And that is what Palisade’s brunch is. The restaurant itself is so classy and so beautiful. The views of the water are breathtaking and the service is phenomenal. The brunch includes unlimited trips to the buffet. I wish everything in life could be unlimited… They have fresh crab legs, cheese, salads galore, sushi, oysters, prawns, and desserts. You sold yet? That doesn’t even include the Entree you get to order! I ordered the Eggs Benedict (my favorite) and it was quite delightful. My favorite part was the bloody mary. You could make a trip to the bloody mary bar and add any type of garnishes (10 dilly beans, please!), spices, or sauces. When you experience this brunch, don’t forget to wear stretchy pants…and don’t weigh yourself for about a week.

After-Swing: I will never say no to getting an adrenaline rush while being surrounded by buff, shirtless men! This experience was so much fun, I did it three times! You go through a lesson and learn how to pull off a beginner’s catch and the finale of the two-hour class is actually getting caught like a real circus performer! There were people with all skill levels participating, anyone can really pull it off. The building is super unique and I loved the quirky decor. There were other classes going on that I was getting distracted by – couldn’t take my eyes off the teachers doing the Silk Aerial Arts. Each class I went to, the catches became more difficult (but more fun, of course). It is one of the most rewarding feelings when you complete a catch (especially when it’s one of the attractive men that’s on the other end)!
