Getting Away!

We caught a flight early Thursday morning, and were in Denver by 9:00 a.m..  Since my birthday was on Wednesday, and Christopher's was on Friday, we thought we'd celebrate both by getting out of town.  Also, Bonobo, a British DJ we love, was spinning in Denver on Friday evening.  Little did we know, we were missing Skrillex on Wednesday evening, otherwise we would have made sure we were there for that too.

We had bagels in the airport here, while visiting with Christopher's sister, who was in the airport too, heading to Ann Arbor Michigan to speak at a conference (go Victoria)!!

This held us over until we made it to Denver, and got a substantial breakfast.  We went to Jelly, where I had savoury French toast, with roasted turkey, bacon, other ridiculous things, and a cheesy gravy.

Yum!!  The coffee was horrifying though.  I've never had such thick, terrible coffee in my life.  It didn't even lighten after we put about five creamers in it.  We never put that much cream in our coffee, if any!  We did not finish it.

We spent the day wandering around, stopping at pubs here and there.

Dinner was at a place we'd visited before, Pita Grill & Hookah.  The food here is incredible.  We shared some baba ganoush, and cucumber salad, which is basically a cold, yogurty, cucumber soup.  It's insane.

We called it a night after dinner, as we had a full day planned for Friday, Christopher's 30th!!

How was your weekend?

Yum, that cucumber dish looks and sounds awesome! Sounds like a great start to your getaway!

I had a great weekend. The weather was beautiful so I was outside quite a bit. I practiced 2 Julia Child recipes which I brought to a couple's house for dinner last night. They both turned out good - especially the pot de creme!

Fun fun fun! I really want to take a trip to Colorado soon. All the food looks great!
