This week should be better than last, but no promises. I actually ran away for a conference Thursday through Saturday last week, and I have some cuteness to share… if the storms will quit knocking out our phone, which means we have no internet…
In the meantime, I can say I was in Philly – er… Philadelphia, PA – for the Junior League annual conference. I traveled with two friends, the outgoing and incoming presidents of our League.
Thursday night, we had the Reading Terminal Market to ourselves for the opening reception. We made a meal out of roaming the aisles and scooping up steamed dumplings from one vendor, crabcakes from another… had crepes made to order, and my gal-pals had mini cupcakes from the Flying Monkey. There was also all the water, wine and beer one might want, all of it included in our conference registration fee.
Most of our meals were included in the conference package, and while I do think the Marriott does conference fare better than most, it’s still chicken in a funky sauce, globby starch, etc. However Friday night, we roamed the streets in our area (more on two particularly awesome shops when I can get photos AND upload them) and settled on dinner at Zavino.
Again, no photos from me, but it’s a great little spot with good pizza, small plates and wine. We started with the beet and goat cheese small plate, followed by a 3-cheese plate the spinach pizza, and washed it all down with a bottle of Prosecco in honor of one gal’s 5th wedding anniversary. She sent her hubby a photo of her sipping her bubbly, and he sent her a photo of him with a cold, frosty mug of beer.
I’d never spent any time in that part of Philly, so I thoroughly enjoyed having the lone evening to stroll the neighborhood with my companions. More on what I bought and from where soon!
How was your (thanks for putting them in time-out, Blogger) weekend?
