This weekend was a long one, but a very very good one. And even though I’m struggling to keep my eyes open as I get these scheduled, I wouldn’t change a thing I did, saw and especially ate.
One of my favorite parts about living in the city is having access to tons and tons of art and creative displays. This weekend, I had the chance to see, walk through and experience the gorgeous display that is Creative Africa at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. From this bright and colorful thread display to some of the most stunning fashion designs I’ve ever seen, I loved every bit of it.
Part of my new job includes hosting press and writers in the city to show them Philly’s best. This weekend, I got to experience amazing exhibits like this with a group of great ladies who enjoyed the exhibit as much as I did.All topped off with views like these. I mean… come on!
I also had the chance to stay at the Hotel Monaco for the weekend. Walking back into my apartment after staying in my beautiful, bright and colorful room definitely has me urging to step up my apartment decor. Nothing beats walking past tons of fresh floral arrangements and budding blooms at the start of summer. These sunflowers were in Rittenhouse Square on Saturday and it took everything in me not to head back home with 10 bouquets (all of which would be wilted away by mid week). Now, let’s talk food and drink. AKA, the essentials.
I had the chance to dine at some of Philly’s best, and also some of my favorites. I had dinners at Double Knot and Vedge, both of which blew me away. Brunch at High Street on Market and Hickory Lane –which is a long time favorite for it’s brunch menu (and mimosas). And I wrapped up the weekend with some of my favorite tacos in the city, at Buena Onda.
Looking forward to another great week ahead! How was your weekend?!
