Scenes from the Weekend
Monday, January 31, 2011
Well well, hello Monday! Did everyone have a swell weekend? I have to be honest, I ate my way through this past weekend, which goes against rules # 1-75 on my new years resolution list. Oops! Bree and I took a road trip (I say road trip because with traffic, a stop for snacks, a trip to refill gas, and 2 looped listening sessions of Girl Talk's latest album the route there took us over an hour) we arrived in Venice for an adventurous afternoon. I am a east-side L.A. girl at heart, but I do love me some beach lovin' every once in a while. If I was forced by law to leave my beloved Silverlake, my next choice would totally be Venice. So B and I walked the streets of Abbot Kinney, dined at Gjelina and shared the most delicious Gruyere, Caramelized Onion, Fromage Blanc & Arugula Pizza I've ever tasted. We chased our lunch with the butterscotch pot de creme with salted caramel and creme fraiche and amaretto gelato. Real women order dessert, kids. Just sayin'. Sunday was filled with celebrating best boy pal C's birthday at the Eagle Rock Brewery. We ate from the the No Jodas! Cuban Kitchen food truck and sipped some of the most delicious specialty beers I've ever tasted. The evening ended with a cookie cake (obviously!) and all of us standing around the campfire drinking jugs full of beer and reminiscing about all of C's past birthdays, and just how much we love him! A good weekend, if I do say so myself!
