They arrived just in time for lunch on Saturday. But before we headed out to eat, I opened presents. They got me the Thug Kitchen cookbook!!! And an awesome seed sprouting tray and some cupcake accessories! Oh yea, I dyed my hair hot pink (more on that in a few).
After presents, we headed to Imagine Vegan Cafe. I ordered the Potato Skins, loaded with vegan cheese, bacon bits, and sour cream.
Next, we went to the Broad Avenue Arts District to support Cassi's Pink Noodle pop-up shop at the Rock-n-Roll Country Carnival.
I bought Cassi's Vegan Nachos! And a Watermelon Candy Apple (but my picture of that didn't turn out).
We stuck around to watch the band, Aimee & Rickie (and their cute animal friends!) sing awesome songs about raising baby squirrels (YES!!!), lentils, and gay marriage.
And we played for a bit with the fun carnival games!
And then we hit up Wiseacre Brewing Company for some delicious local brews. I had a pint of the Lord Skylark Earl Grey Pale Ale and a sample of the Holy Candy.
Later, we headed to Crazy Noodle for dinner. I ordered the Vegetable Ramen with tofu, shiitakes, corn, turnip, and other veggies. Omg, so good.
Sheridan and Drew made the PERFECT Jon Snow and Ygritte from Game of Thrones.
On Sunday morning, before they left town, we met Stephanie for brunch at Fuel Cafe, where I had a Beermosa (mango juice + hard apple cider) and Sheridan stuck with coffee.
While we waited on our meals, we snacked on Vegan Doughnuts that Stephanie picked up at Imagine on her way to Fuel. Mmmmmm ... doughnuts. This was the first doughnut Sheridan has had since going vegan several years ago!
And then Sher and Drew hit the road back home to Little Rock. We had a great weekend, and I'm so happy I got to spend pre-Halloween with my BEST FRIEND!!
