The last 24 hours of the Healthy Living Summit was all about Philly’s Finest.
Philadelphia Finest Fun:
And Philadelphia’s Finest FOOD!
After wrapping up the conference, a group of us headed out for a night on the town. We started off at a swanky cocktail bar for drinks and appetizers:
A Pink Tickle – tequila, raspberry puree, coconut water, and agave. As amazing as it sounds!
And pistachio-encrusted goat cheese platter.
After the first restaurant, we asked two of Philadelphia’s real finest (cops) for directions to the best gay bar, and they pointed us to a place called Woody’s, which was AWESOME. We danced until 2:00 AM, singing Lady Gaga and Katy Perry at the top of our lungs. Afterwards, we grabbed dinner and face-planted in our beds.
In the morning, we made our way down to the Quaker breakfast bar to say farewell to everyone:
I had oats, fruit, and a boiled egg.
Here’s the magically delicious gluten-free cereal I mentioned yesterday – I need to find this at the grocery store! It would be a great base for a granola bar.
All of the Charlotte bloggers gathered together for a picture:
And then we headed out for some sightseeing:
The famous Katy Widrick (social media guru – check out her blog) was our guide. Well, she had the map!
The Liberty Bell!
It was smaller than I imagined it would be…
And last, but not least, it was time for some of Philly’s finest food – the cheese steak! But a vegetarian cheese steak, of course.
I wasn’t expecting much from this veggie sandwich, but it absolutely blew my mind. Instead of beef, they used seitan. Amazing. Truly.
If you’re ever in Philly, head over to the Reading Terminal Market…
… Find the Basic Vegetarian Snack Bar, and ask for the veggie cheese steak. You won’t regret it!
I’m sad HLS is over, but as usual, I leave feeling inspired and energized by all the positivity and fun. Regular blogging shall now resume! See you in Charlotte!
