This is going to be a long post, but I had a really fun weekend with some good friends. I lucked out and ended up having the weekend off so I was free for fun activities. I drove down to Baltimore and met my friend Tristan who is doing a rotation at University of Maryland. Our other friend Courtney drove up and joined us. (Courtney also wanted to see the children's hospital in Delaware.)
Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale....if you are a pumpkin beer lover, I order you to get in your car right now and buy some. You will not be disappointed.
We went out dancing for the rest of the evening and had a great time...maybe even a little too great. So, we also met Michael Phelps at the bar. He is a jerk. Not even the least bit friendly.
Courtney and I drove back up to Delaware Saturday morning and knew we needed a great lunch spot. We both wanted fresh salads or something. We stumbled across a restaurant called "Fresh Thymes", a local vegan/vegetarian/carnivore friendly establishment specializing in local, organic, and fresh foods. WOW! This place ranks as one of the best places I've ever eaten. Courtney and I started with a cup of fresh tomato soup. This was basically a bowl of pureed tomatoes full of various savory herbs.
Obviously food has been the theme of this trip. We ended our festivities at Limoncello, a local West Chester Italian restaurant.
Leah went with the Limoncello chicken; chicken breast over pasta with crab meat and asparagus.
