I woke up on Saturday morning ravenous. I was ready for brunch!
D started off the morning with a riddle, so I could guess where we were going for breakfast:
“What if Danny DeVito’s wife opened a restaurant for kitty cats?”
The answer “It would be called Ria’s Bluebird!!”
Ria’s has long been on my list to try, and Saturday was a perfect morning for it! I was in the mood for a big stack of potatoes, so when I saw the Bionic Breakfast, I knew it was perfect for me! (of course, I forgot my camera, because I was so hungry!)
We also enjoyed a side of Soysage. D had the Southwest Tofu Scramble, which was also divine.
After brunch I took a long, much needed nap – followed by a family outing to the dog park.
At the dog park, I got my next riddle for our plans for the evening: “Your dreamy home away from home by the sea.”
It took me a while to guess. I started guessing seaside destinations: parent’s beach house in Grayton, Savannah, Charleston. . .
D told me it’s not as much about the destination. I was baffled.
It was only on the interstate, where I saw signs for Athens that I figured out we were going to a concert.
What concert? Oh yeah, BEACH HOUSE!!!
I love Beach House, and it holds a special place in my heart.
Before Beach House, we went and ate at The Grit, a famous vegetarian restaurant in Athens. I had been once before for breakfast, and I was STARVING when we went on Saturday.
A friend of mine was telling me about their famous Golden Bowl, so I knew I had to try it.
The golden bowl is probably the most delicious meal I’ve had since going vegan. I’m a big nutritional yeast fan, and this dish is loaded with nooch! We even had a little leftover for lunch on Sunday!
With full tummies, we headed to the Georgia Theatre and grabbed some stools on the third level. We settled in and had a great evening with Beach House and their dreamy tunes.
Coming soon- Part 3: A day of rest. . .
