On eating all the vegetables and a bit of burlesque...

posted on: Sunday, July 21, 2013

I had the nicest little impromptu hang with my friend/coworker yesterday! (She's a super talented artist who has an events chalkboard business to which I'd totally link if she had her website up... hint hint...) It was rather impromptu and since I set off thinking it was too hot/too bright/too whatever to take my camera, I only have photos from my sad little iPhone 4. Sorry! (not really sorry, sorry) Aaaaanyway, I had a crazy week food-wise. Tuesday was our FOUR YEAR wedding anniversary (whhaaaa...?!? It's been that long?!) so we took advantage of a gift card some customer gave my husband and went to Outback Steakhouse. It was what it was, mediocre food but tasty steak and silly stupid fun. And then, on Friday my amazing coworkers threw a little party to wish me farewell. They hooked it up with the sweets: birthday cake balls from Momofuku Milk Bar, s'mores pie and cherry pie from Butter & Scotch and cupcakes from Prohibition Bakery. Of course I ate one of everything. And then I worked a wedding with one of my favorite caterers, Betty Brooklyn. So yes, I ate a LOT and to make up for it I'd been determined to do a bit of a juice fast on Saturday.

However, I'm a sucker for brunch. I really truly am, especially when it involves a social hang with a friend/coworker on a nice day before we'll have to go work a wedding. Since I was (somewhat) sticking to my guns she suggested Angelica Kitchen, a raw vegan restaurant that's been around for ages. SO GOOD! As you can see below, we went all out and it was awesome. Afterwards we wandered over to the Union Square greenmarket (I bought purple carrots, loads of fruit and some amazing lamb sausage from one of my favorite vendors whose name I can't remember) before splitting off to prepare for work.

I was working a wedding all evening (great crowd, really sweet and funny couple) but across the street at 501 Union, Gowanus Arts was putting on a Summer at 501 performance featuring Company XIV. I caught a moment of their incredible set (seriously, everyone's minds were BLOWN) and wish I'd seen it all. I posted a little video on Instagram (find me at ohmanda or click the link up top) if you want to catch a snippet of the music. They'll be performing several Sundays coming up at the Slipper Room so as soon as we get back from the beach today husband is going to be buying us tickets.
