This past weekend (for our official one year anniversary celebration) we traveled the 3 hours to Raleigh and went to the new music festival Hopscotch.

It was FANTASTIC. We had such a great time.

unfortunately, the hotel had screwed shut the "window" (actually a sliding glass door), so we had to listen through the glass. BUT, it was still a success. We heard many a soundcheck as well as the Rosebud's set.

We went to the coolest restaurant in downtown Raleigh, The Remedy Cafe. The hubs is a vegetarian and we always have issues finding restaurants with more than 2 veggie choices (and most places where we live consider seafood vegetarian, so it doesn't really work out for him that often). But this restaurant was AWESOME. Not only did it have a great selection of meat-eater diner food, it also had a whole page of veggie options, including: a veggie meatball sub (which the hubs had and LOVED), a veggie Ruben, vegan fare, etc, etc. It was fantastic.

Not only did it have an awesome menu, but it had an awesome drink menu. Our drinks included "the elixir of life", "liquid lobotomy", "an attitude adjustment", "anxiety antidote", and the "poinsettia"...

Another post to come soon of the shows!
