Hi friends! How’s your weekend going? Hope you’re having a beautiful and relaxing day so far
Thanks so much for the Philly recommendations! The official HLS events are over, so we’ll see what kind of shenanigans the Pilot and I can get into today
Yesterday, in between events, we met up with some friends to hit up the Rittenhouse farmer’s market.
My preg buddy:
The market was really cute- lots of flower vendors, produce, goat cheese (!) and fresh lemonade. We each grabbed one, and I loved the option of having it sweetened with Stevia instead of agave.
As much as I love to visit other farmer’s markets, it’s always a legendary tease because there isn’t a ton you can take on a plane home with you.
I’m hoping to head back to that area today, because the surrounding stores looked very appealing
For dinner, we went to pod, which is a modern family-style Asian restaurant.
The atmosphere was pretty amazeballz:
Sleek, modern, and I’m a fan of any place with conveyor belt sushi
To start, we shared some salty warm edamame:
Thai salad for me (cabbage, cilantro, egg, peanuts, avocado, vinaigrette)
+ one of the few rolls I can roll with for the next few months: California
[The crab is cooked, so it’s NBD. It’s also nowhere near the awesomeness of salmon sashimi.]
The best part:
Chocolate hazelnut brownie with espresso ice cream.
It was so much fun chatting with the girls, being told crazy stories by the Pilot and feasting on glorious food
After dinner, we went to a wine bar, the hotel bar and called it a night. It was the latest this old lady’s been up in a while
See ya later this afternoon <3
