Photos From The Weekend

Eric and I had such a fun weekend! The past few weeks (months?) our weekends have either been super low-key with no plans, or we are full of plans! This weekend was a mix of both, we didn’t have a lot on the agenda except for a few fun activities!

Friday afternoon I went for a run through the city, to get in the holiday spirit. Yep you heard that right, a run! For the time being I have my plantar fasciitis under control, and have been able to start running again.
I ran all through the city and made my way to Rittenhouse Square.

And then I continued on and went to Love Park to see the Christmas tree!

Once Eric got home we cruised on our bikes to Grindcore House in South Philly. They had a print show up for a few weeks and it was time to take the print I bought home.
If you are ever in the need for some cool prints/posters, definitely check out what they have up. There are usually some really cool prints, that are really affordable.

Since we were already down south, I wanted to eat dinner at Royal Tavern. Eric and I both got the Tempeh Club, which is easily one of the best sandwiches ever!

After dinner we cruised on home.

We didn’t have a lot going on during the day on Saturday, so I got to work and made some Christmas-y cookies. The cookies were good, but I don’t think I am a fan of using candy canes in cookies.

Eric and I went to my company’s Christmas party out in the suburbs. I didn’t take any photos, but it was a lot of fun. I’ve been working from home since August, so I actually hadn’t seen any of my co-workers for a few months. We did a gift exchange and we came home with a Snuggie!

Sunday Eric and I headed up to North Philly for the annual Bilenky Junkyard Cyclo-Cross Race. We missed the race last year, do to 2 feet of snow, so I was really excited to check it out. It’s a bike race, through a junkyard, with various obstacles set up.

After the race we scoped out the bike shop. Bilenky makes a bunch of custom bikes.

Once Eric and I got home, I got to work on making some no-knead bread.

And then we headed to our friends Ricky and Dana’s for a holiday party. Everyone was instructed to bring a holiday beer, and they made chili for all of us to eat.

They bought a house recently and just installed this super awesome fireplace in their garage.

There was an amazing collection of holiday beer. I got to try a lot of beers I had been wanting to buy.

    I think of that tempeh club sometimes and then I get sad. That bike race looks awesome! Way cooler than alleycats!

  4. Haha! I totally believed you on the Colt 45 thing until I scrolled down and saw the pic. Too funny!

    Sounds like a great weekend. I love Philly at Christmas time! Never been to Royal Tavern but I’ll have to check it out. That sandwich looks awesome!
