|LJ, E and me at the expo.|
|Awesome medal, cool mug and boring shirt (not pictured).|
E's condo was built in the early 1900s. What a treat to check it out and get a feel of historical Atlanta.
|E's place. Could the weather be any better?|
And then the food! The four of us definitely got a taste of Atlanta. Since E is a foodie, there wasn't a chain restaurant in site.
Atlanta Cupcake Factory- a tiny hole in the wall, with the most delicious cupcakes. I had salted caramel and chocolate salted caramel (what, you thought I'd only purchase one?)
King of Pops- The best home made popsicle I've ever had, purchased on the street corner. Chocolate Sea Salt!
Osteria Italian- I learned about white pizza for the first time last October in New Jersey. I couldn't resist the Smoked Prosciutto White Pizza at dinner on Saturday night. Oh my goodness, so delicious. I wonder if we have a restaurant like this somewhere in Portland?
|Dinner outside on the patio, cuz the weather was perfect!|
Yeah! Burger- My post race lunch was a burger and onion rings, I'm not ready to try the specialty brussels sprouts yet. Maybe next time.
Sadly, we had to leave the restaurant before 12:30, when Georgians are allowed to start purchasing alcohol on Sundays....
....but, luckily, Jess and I had time for a drink at the airport. And, of course, Southwest celebrated St. Patrick's Day with free drinks on the plane, so my 7 hour flight home was a bit relaxing.
I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend in Atlanta. The race course takes you through the city, so I felt like I really got a feel for this town. And, I can't thank E enough for sharing her condo and favorite eats with us.
Next up? The Flying Pirate Half in the OBX, North Carolina (state #21)!
