Look out Milwaukee, Here we Come
Leaving for the airport on Friday I was super excited! Trying to think of a good Mid-Western saying for that. We’ll just say I thought “ooooh yaaaaah, caaahn’t waaaait!”. Friday morning riding in the cab with the windows open through Philadelphia, gorgeous cool weather, sun is coming up and I am about to get the opportunity to visit some amazing friends and run in an awesome new city – what a butterfly-esque feeling!! So what to start off the trip with?… a balanced breakfast of banana and red wine. Delish. 🙂
Lakefront Brewery where you get about four fresh brewed beers, a crazy fun tour guide and lots more laughter for $7. Can’t beat that! And they also make you sing Laverne and Shirley at the end. What a
dangerous good start to the night. Yep 8:00pm is early when you are out until 4am – oops. So after starving ourselves for about 8 hours… actually more like 4 but who is counting, we found a great ‘fish fry’. Tracks Tavern was perfect… and much needed fooooood. By far the best fried cod I’ve ever had, so good I would chance another 5 hour wait in the Phila airport (we’ll talk about that later) just for more.
Well apparently I’m a bad influence on Lori and Greg because they haven’t
drank had this much fun in a while! By far my favorite bar of the trip was the Foundation Tiki Bar , and it was so good that we even went there twice in one night. The most amazing and strong tropical drinks and cool atmosphere. Not to mention getting to meet fun new people and a bar tender that love/hated Lori. Reasons – asking what is in every single drink, and stealing a menu. Oh well.. we spent enough money there on Mai-Tais and tiki men (mugs that are shaped like tiki dudes – NOT actual men).
As if we didn’t have enough to eat already we had to stop at
Wawa ‘whatever local late night food place’ they have in MKE and get frozen pizza and chocolate donuts – thanks Greg! Not exactly what I call pre-race food but at least I will now have had enough sugar to last me until my run on Wednesday morning. 🙂 And this is just Friday night mayhem…
