More from the Long Weekend

Back to the Labour Day long weekend ...

After our delicious low-country boil on Friday, we got a good sleep, as we had plans to go out on Saturday night.

Dinner on Saturday evening was at Ru downtown.

We shared shrimp to start, and then I had bee bim bop, and Christopher had a poke bowl.  Both were really good.

After dinner, we walked across the street to the Victoria's Tavern parking lot, where there was a Pre-Labour Day bash with a bunch of local rappers and DJs.

We absolutely LOVED Hoodoo, and can't wait to see them again.  They are a band that mixes hip hop with funk!  There is so much incredible music talent in this city.

Christopher had heard this band quite a bit on the radio and was super excited to see them, and now I understand why.

Then came the headliner, and the reason we bought tickets for this event to begin with.  Def3 is an awesome rapper, who also happened to go to our high school.

This was totally my kind of night out, and one of the best nights on the town I can remember in a long time.

We got home close to midnight and ordered a pizza:

Dominos - NY pepperoni, extra green olives, mushrooms, jalapenos, cheddar, and mozza.
All of Sunday was spent outside.  We roasted hotdogs and marshmallows:

I tried Aero bar in a s'more because I kept seeing ads for this on the internet.  It wasn't that great, as the chocolate didn't melt.

On the holiday Monday we snacked on baked brie:

Sundried tomatoes, thyme, drizzle of olive oil.
And tried Mexican street corn with our jalapeno jack burgers:

What are you up to this weekend?  Have you ever had Mexican street corn? (It's the only corn on the cob I want from now on - soooooo good.)

I don't think I've had Mexican street corn but it sounds like something I would like! Your roasted hot dogs and s'mores look so good! That's my kind of summer meal!

We had a pretty quiet weekend this past weekend. Saturday was our busier day as Paul and I had swimming lessons in the morning and then we went to a friend's house to meet their new baby. They have a son the same age as Paul. Really can not imagine having an infant right now as I have my hands full with Paul!!!
