A yin-yang weekend
First the fun yin part: Twin #1 and friends needed to be in downtown Minneapolis all day Friday, Friday night, and Saturday morning for All-State Music Festivals. So we took advantage of the all-state discount and booked a room. Then of course I invited a sister to go with me. Sister Cheesecake Maven came along and we had a well-deserved yet wickedly expensive time.
Traveling Nicolett Avenue we discovered La Belle Crepe - a little tiny literal hole-in-the-wall serving amazing food for pennies. They had French Sipping Chocolate which was coffee, dark chocolate, angel tears, ecstasy, eros, agape, and the collective sigh of humanity in a small cup. DAMN that stuff was good!
For supper we splurged on fondue at The Melting Pot. We ordered the full dinner for two starting with swiss cheese fondue, the assorted meats & seafood cooked in red wine broth, and ending with the dark chocolate fondue. We both just crapped our pants with joy. Below is someone else's photo, not mine.
Next morning was BACK to La Belle Crepe for breakfast - can you tell I'm in love? Then on to Macy's for bra shopping. Remember my post about the horrors of this? Well "Donna" in Macy's intimates dept made it all better.
