Wild Fire (812 South Austin Avenue Georgetown, TX 78626 (512) 869-3473) was the only place I could find open after 6pm while wandering around downtown Georgetown. I was taking a page from my blog friend, The Edmonton Tourist, to be a tourist in my neck of the woods. All I could do was window shop and take note of any stores that look interesting for future visits during business hours.
Lucky for me, Wild Fire had a nice assortment of desserts including Black Forest Cake! I bought a slice with a cup of coffee. Who in their right mind gets coffee when it’s screaming hot outside? Well, I thought it was a bit early for Chardonnay.
I had to hold myself back from devouring this luscious chocolate mouse layer cake. I was expecting more kirsch flavor but the extra cherries on the side made up for that.
Relax and enjoy duck quesadillas, bison, or just dessert like me, while Frank Sinatra woos you via the constant stream of music overhead. A quaint atmosphere in old downtown Georgetown, I had the feeling there are quite a few regulars (probably lawyers and retired folks) who meet here. I had a very friendly waiter who let me snag a table in the window. He said it was a slow night and they typically serve the 80+ crowds, I seemed to be a part of a freak wave of youthful patrons.
The lovely elderly woman who left while I was in the middle of picking away at the chocolate cake said to me “Are you going straight to the gym after that?” I was flattered, really, because I’ve neglected to go to the gym for years. I smiled brightly and replied “No, I pick up my kids after this.” She agreed. “That’s a workout in itself!”
