Fun night out in Charlotte!
My mom is in town with a friend, and we took them to Uptown for a fun outdoor festival!
The festival was BBQ and Blues and it was a blues music festival + lots of alcohol, cigarette, gambling, and BBQ booths. A pretty interesting mix of vendors! But the music was awesome and lots of dancing in a parking lot ensued.
In addition to the festival, we went to a tapas-style restaurant called Dandelion Market for dinner. I was definitely ready to EAT after running 15.0 miles this morning!
I started off with a very lackluster Colores Del Sol Malbec. But all wine is good, even mediocre wine.
My tapas included a deconstructed caprese salad with fried mozzarella.
As well as stuffed zucchini:
I also snagged some of the Husband’s olives.
And even though no one else wanted to eat dessert, I insisted on getting the salted caramel brownie and eating nearly the entire thing by myself. 🙂
‘Twas a wonderful meal!
Oh, my afternoon snacks included mini ice cream sandwiches and crackers + hummus + salsa, as well as my third Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season!
I… am… ready… to… DROP!
Get your rest! You’re amazing to have ran 15 miles today. I’m so proud of you, and this looks like an AWESOME night!
