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!
