Hi Hounds --
On the auspicious occasion of my upcoming birthday, DF is taking me to Little Elm for dinner. (Yeah, I'm pretty excited about that). We have a pretty early seating, but would like to enjoy a fancy, grown-up cocktail beforehand.
We'd prefer a place that is a *short* walk, less than 10 minutes, to the restaurant. Can anyone offer any opinions of either The Counting Room or Hotel Delmano? Bear in mind we will probably roll in there pretty early-- like 5 or 5:30. Would either of them feel weird that early?
Any other suggestions are welcome. DF will probably want wine, as she's not a boozehound. Typically I like good craft beers, but before an eating event like Little Elm I don't want to risk crushing my palate or filling up on beer.
