West Philly Weekend

Posted on July 19, 2012 by

I got home from DC mid-week last week and set to task getting ready for my move. I packed most of my things and spent a whole day last week painting my room. This is what the room looked like before, a nice shade of pinky lavendar.

I painted it a dark green. Pretty drastic difference!

It turned out great. It’s a really different color for me but I’m excited to have dark walls. I never have before.

Amy Leigh came to town on Friday, pre-Clit Fest. We got brunch at the Cedar Park Cafe, our local greasy spoon diner that caters to vegans randomly.

After brunch we went to Max and Will’s house so Amy Leigh could meet their dog, Sprocket, who is a famed internet dog.

This lil pup. Rover and Sprocket still need to meet. Fingers crossed that they’ll be good friends.

On Friday night, I was tempted to stay in and work on projects, because that’s my normal mode of thinking when I’m finishing a regular work week and finally have free time for art stuff. But I reminded myself that I have all the time in the world right now for that, and made myself go out to a show at Nacho House, which I just recently learned is in West Philly and not South Philly like I had previously thought.

I’m glad I went! It ended up being the kick off to a really fun, social weekend.

After the show, we walked over and got late night food at Lucky’s.

After dinner, we walked over to the little popsicle shop that I just learned about.

It’s called the Lil Pop Shop.

After that, we headed out to the burbs to go bowling!

We just got Lucky’s and sat in the Dahlak beer garden instead.

On Monday, I helped Max, Will and Ciara move again, this time into the house from the garage where they had been storing their things for two weeks until the house was really ready. Afterward, we got tofu hoagies from Fu Wah.

That night, we got dinner at Dock Street for Ciara’s birthday.

Amy Leigh came back post Clit Fest for a day of Philly hangs, and to catch the megabus. She was making a squinty face about some food I think.

West Philly rules.

Our waitress brought out a free tiramisu for Ciera’s birthday.

Then we walked over to Satellite for late night coffee and so the vegans could get dessert. Amy was working and gifted us half of an entire Vegan Treats peanut butter bomb cake because they were about to close. It was a good West Philly weekend.
