Eric and I started off the weekend by grabbing pizza at Blackbird, which is a new pizza shop that serves VEGAN PIZZA. We met up with my friend Alison, who I went to high school with, but sadly I forgot to take a photo from her. Probably because I was too busy stuffing my face and drinking wine.
We ordered half yukon gold and half sausage.
The yukon gold was made for me. I’ve mentioned before that I have never been a pizza person since I don’t like tomato sauce and have never eaten cheese. But put some slices of potato on and I am a happy person.
We both agreed that the pizza is some of the best we have ever had.
After a slightly late night, lots of pizza, and a few drinks, I woke up Saturday morning not feeling my best. Eric had to leave the city to help a friend move, and it was beyond tempting to go back to sleep. But I got my butt up and ran 10.5 miles. It wasn’t the best run, but wasn’t the worst, and I survived.
After a shower, some lounging, and maybe a nap, I, uh, headed back to Blackbird. Obsessed?
Back in August when Eric and I went to Chicago I got to meet up with one of my old internet friends. Well Ramsey was in town this weekend and some people were getting together to eat. I was surprised to arrive at Blackbird a few minutes before they opened and see that there was already a line! Once they opened the place just got busier and busier.
I got the yukon gold again, it was too delicious.
The inside is kind of small, so we took it outside.
I honestly can’t remember what I did the rest of Saturday. My legs really started to hurt so I am pretty sure I was on the couch the rest of the day.
Sunday morning Eric and I rode our bikes out to West Philly to have brunch with Juli and Megan. We met up at Local 44, which is where I ate after the last half marathon, but I was pretty delirious then and didn’t remember much, ha.
They have a pretty small, but good, brunch selection with plenty of vegan options.
We hung out in West Philly for a bit, which is always a new experience, then headed back to our hood.
When Eric was out in the ‘burbs on Saturday he picked up a new Mexican mineral water for me to try. I am obsessed with Topo Chico, but can’t find it anywhere in the Northeast. I keep trying different brands, but nothing compares. Well ladies and gentlemen, we have a contender! This mineral water was pretty close!
Sunday night we watched the Phillies game then came home and crashed.
