A Snowy Weekend in Philadelphia

The weekend started like this...

By 7:30am on a Saturday, myself, the sisters and the boyfriend found ourselves camped out at the Navy Yard for the first ever BHLDN bridal sample sale. In the back of my mind I'm thinking...this better be worth it, it's cold...it's way too early and I'm hungry - well actually I was ok on the food department because the bride-to-be had packed us some adorable snack bags!

As we entered into the bridal sale around 10am, it was a mad house. It was everything you thought it would be. Women stripping down (even after being asked not to), people grabbing and pulling dresses, dresses all over the floor... However, being the family that we are, we quickly devised a plan. We took over an entire garment rack - we packed all of our belongings underneath and asked the boyfriend to man-hold the dresses while the bride-to-be. We left the sale with three wedding dresses. I would say the early rise and long wait was well worth it!

After all the dress hunting, it was time to venture out into the snow storm and look for some nice warm, inexpensive and something pleasing to everyone, lunch. The boyfriend quickly suggested his new favorite, Vientiane Cafe in West Philadelphia.

Having never been there for lunch, I had no idea they offer a three-course special. We ordered a pot of ginger tea to share while we pondered our selections. I went with the Tom Yum soup, Satay (tofu), and the green tofu curry.

As always, the food was delicious, vegan, gluten free, and inexpensive. Service was on par as usual.
