Yeti Tracks at Snowdays

I love shaved ice – it’s lighter than it’s cream counterpart and makes me all nostalgic because my grandma used to have one of those manual shaved ice machines. I got the Yeti Food: It’s Yeti Tracks shaved ice with bananas, waffles cones, & blueberry puree. Next time I’m getting the same thing but with mochi – it’s so good! Click through for more pics!

Squish Marshmallows

Somewhere before downing some donuts and after noshing on ice cream, Brian and I found the time to stop by Squish to sample some toasted marshmallows. The smore is delicious but I wish the waffle cone taco were dipped in Dark chocolate instead. Click through for more pics!

Pierogies at Veselka

My first bite of pierogi was when I was in college. My close friend Sara insisted that I take a bite of the boiled, potato-filled dumpling with a pile of fried onions and a big dollop of sour cream. I took that wonderful delicious bite and never looked back.

Veselka is one of my favorite spots – I’ve been here so many times and the food always tastes the same! I love all their pierogies, the stuffed cabbage, and the matzo ball soup. Brian and I shared some plates while Lizzie hung around and people watched. The staff was so nice – they gave her a small bowl of water and even offered some homemade dog biscuits!

3rd Annual Bacon & Beer Classic

I don’t drink beer. But I love Beerfests. And bacon. I love bacon. The Bacon and Beer Classic is a yearly tradition – we purchase the VIP passes and sample sips of craft beer while noshing on bacony bites at Citifield. I can’t think of a better way to spend 5 hours. Click through for more pics!

The Good Sort

There are handfuls of the Starbucks Unicorn Latte photos circulating on my timelines and it reminded me of this drink I got over the weekend which is the complete antithesis. Don’t get me wrong, I love sugar on cheat days! But I just can’t believe how delicious this Superfood Rainbow Latte was from The Good Sort – this cute vegan cafe in Chinatown.

The Rainbow Latte isn’t actually a latte because it does NOT have espresso. It doesn’t have any artificial food coloring – the colors are from beet juice, turmeric, and blue algae. It tastes more like a coconut milk-based spiced tea – it’s so good! Ordered it with a hefty slice of Avocado Toast because I could never say no to avocado toast. Click through for pics!
